Det-Tronics Adds Ethernet Connectivity to Industry-Leading Fire and Gas Safety System Controller

Oct 15 2014 Read 1547 Times

Det-Tronics announces the addition of an Ethernet/Modbus TCP/IP interface board option on the Eagle Quantum Premier® (EQP) fire- and gas-safety controller, allowing the controller to communicate with other devices on the Ethernet Local Area Network. Det-Tronics, the global leader in fire- and gas-safety systems, is a part of UTC Building & Industrial Systems, a unit of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE:UTX).

The EQP controller is a flexible, distributed intelligence safety system that provides flame and gas detection, alarm signaling, fault notification and extinguishing agent release control. It integrates component communications on a reliable, fault-tolerant, digital network. Unlike many other fire and gas controllers, the EQP controller is rated for installation in hazardous Class 1/Division 2 and Class 1/Zone 2 locations.

The Ethernet interface board option expands the communication capability of the EQP controller, which has long supported ControlNet, RS-232 Modbus RTU and RS-485 Modbus RTU protocols. “Being able to communicate using the popular Ethernet Modbus TCP/IP protocol will allow customers to easily integrate a variety of devices into a single EQP-system solution,” said Anup Shetty, systems product manager, Det-Tronics.
