Gas Detection Controller - MX 62

Teledyne’s MX 62 is an appealing solution for gas and flame detection requirements. The MX 62 is a modular and versatile controller that is easy to set up and helps to minimize operational costs.

The MX 62 system meets the ATEX 100 A regulations and provides a high security level as mandated by the SIL3 and SK2 rated systems.

Cost-Effective and Secure Installation

The structure of the MX 62 platform has been engineered to offer redundancy. Precise data is relayed promptly from the detectors to the relays.

Structured Programming

The MX 62 is configured using the ConfigPro.exe software, via a secure and password-protected interface.

Saves Space and Optimizes Cost

  • Novel design matches the new safety demands
  • Flexibility allows improved integration with the user’s system
  • Modularity allows a customized operation and custom wiring
  • Programmable outputs minimize relay requirements
  • High dependability guarantees minimum maintenance
