ULTIMA X3 Technology Offers Up to 3 Sensors Per Monitor and Digital Data Transfer

Jun 18 2008

MSA’s (Germany) state-of-the-art Ultima X series gas monitors now feature innovative X3 technology. In addition to all the benefits of the Ultima X series, X3 gas monitors feature digital communication capabilities and can have up to three sensors connected to eachmonitor. Sensor combinations of electrochemical, catalytic and infrared type sensor are available.
A maximum of 31 monitors can be connected to the same data communication line via industry standard ModBUS RTU or connected to a PLC or DCS control system. When using ModBUS digital communication the Ultima X3 monitor operates as a slave device on the network. Since Ultima X3 units can each be equipped with up to 3 sensors, 93 sensors can share a single data line. The modular design also allows the use of remote sensors up to 30 metres apart, each sensor up to 15 metres from the monitor.
The Ultima X3 gas monitor includes all the following features, interchangeable smart catalytic and electrochemical sensors that can be changed under power even in a hazardous area, large clear LCD display and optional status LED’s and alarm relays. New smart sensors are automatically recognised, including gas type, range and alarm set points. Sensor calibration and parameter changes are made using a non-invasive infrared hand-held controller.
The Ultima X3 gas monitors large easy to read LCD “scrolling display” conveniently alternates between sensor
reading and gas type together with sensor flag 1, 2 or 3 and scrolling diagnostic text messages. Internal relays can be configured for 3 common alarms or one individual alarm for each sensor and the digital communication allows for remote diagnostics. The new Ultima X3 multi-sensor gas monitor with digital communication is a perfect match for all
applications and industries.
