Uninterruptible power supply for the controllers of the GMA200 series
Gas detection systems ensure safety in industrial plant and public buildings by reliably detecting gases at an early stage and alerting in case of too high or low concentration. Only continuous monitoring of gases increases the protection of people, plants and the environment. The GMA200-UPS ("Uninterruptible Power Supply") ensures safe operation of the gas detection system even if the power supply is briefly disrupted or fails.
A gas detection computer like our proven GMA200 is the heart of a gas detection system. It evaluates the measured values of the connected transmitters centrally and usually also supplies them with voltage. A disturbance in the power supply of the controller consequently results in a complete failure of the gas monitoring system. Even with the shortest interruptions, the start-up times of the affected devices mean that hazards caused by gases are not controlled for a longer period of time.
Control and minimize risks
The GMA200-UPS prevents gas detection system failure by supplying power to the GMA200 as soon as the normal power supply is interrupted, even for a brief moment. As a result, the areas being monitored are never unsecured. With the GMA200-UPS, no critical gas concentration goes undetected in the event of a fault in the power supply network that powers the gas detection system, including the transmitters and alarm devices.
Equipment and versions
The GMA200-UPS is installed in a GMA200-MW16 housing (dimensions: 270 x 290 x 98 mm | W x H x D) and is wall-mounted. Automatic charging of the integrated lead-acid batteries for the emergency power supply is provided by an integrated 24 V DC power supply unit with 50 Watt output. The uninterruptible power supply is offered in two versions that can bridge a power failure for either one or three hours (each at a maximum of 1.8 A).
