The MX 43 digital technology allows up to 32 detectors to be distributed on 8 lines for increased cost savings.
USB Module for Improved Storage Capacity
Tyco Gas & 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 in order 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).
The COM 43 Programming CD
The MX 43 is now available with a programming CD that is compatible with any MX 43 controllers already in use. The COM 43 is a simple application that gives user access to the advanced features of the MX43 controller and makes programming fast and easy to do on one’s own. Users save precious time by configuring the controller’s parameters on their computer and transferring these parameters directly to the MX 43 using a USB cable.
Programming is quick and easy: the COM 43 application can be installed on a computer from a CD and gives access to all of the controller’s options:
Configuration of measurement channels
Simplified relay programming
Up to 5 on-board functions: OR, AND, NOR, NAND, VOTING
Advanced management of audible alarms with timer options (holding time, automatic acknowledgment, reactivation, evacuation)
COM 43 is equipped with useful features that make programming your MX43 gas detector easy, quick, and secure:
Graphic display for easy relay programming
Architecture displayed progressively as the programming process is completed
Access to an Oldham gas monitor library pre-programmed according to industry standards
Highly practical “copy-paste” function saves time by preventing programming errors from one sensor to the next
“Verification/validation” feature to ensure correct programming and to flag any programming errors before validating
Transfer settings to the controller in just a few seconds
The CD also contains the French and English user manuals for the COM 43 and the MX 43 controller.
