A Closer Look

Features & benefits 

  • Two extra MOSFET outputs for driving the audible and visual alarms 
  • Five programmable events per detector (1 to 3 alarms, under scale, overscale) and fault event 
  • Large graphic and multi-language LCD back-lit display is easy to read 
  • Manages both digital lines and analog channels and covers all needs for a wide variety of applications 
  • Optional USB module provides a recording capacity of more than 2 years 
  • Front panel LEDs allows for a quick and basic overview of the installation 
  • The MX43’s digital technology allows up to 32 detectors to be distributed on 8 lines for increased cost savings 
  • Smart keys make embedded menus easy to use 
  • One person can easily align and commission the system without the need for special training or skills. After an initial coarse adjustment by eye, a telescope is fitted allowing fine adjustment to optimised the adjustment for maximum signal strength. 

USB Module for Improved Storage Capacity 

Teledyne Gas and Flame Detection has improved the storage capacity of its MX 43 controller by adding an USB module. The USB option provides the user the following benefits: 

  • Continuous data logging on the USB key at a user defined sampling rate from 2 seconds to 15 minutes,  
  • Recording in real-time of all events (alarms, faults, alarm resets, calibration etc.) 
  • Automatic backup of the configuration 
  • Automatic backup of the firmware 
  • Loading a configuration or a firmware file from the USB stick to restore or update the system easily. 

The 4GB USB drive fitted with the USB kit, provides a recording capacity of more than 2 years (18 months in the worst case for a controller equipped with 32 detectors), a 2 second sampling rate (32 measurements every 2 seconds), and 100 events per day per gas detector (3200 events per day). 

Applications 

  • Boiler room 
  • Food industry 
  • HVAC 
  • Automotive plants 
  • Steel Mills 
  • Wastewater treatment 
  • Petrochemical 
  • Laboratories

The Specs at a Glance
