Red Cross in Lower Austria Benefits From CO Gas Warning System from MSR

Copyright: Red Cross Lower Austria

MSR-Electronic secures the rescue vehicle hall with digital gas sensors. Whether it is emergency rescue, driving services or security at events, the Regional Association of the Red Cross of Lower Austria sets high standards - not only in the care of Austria's citizens. It also ensures the safety of its own employees. In the course of the new construction of the branch office, the vehicle hall of the ambulances will be equipped with a CO gas warning system. Accordingly, in case of an increased CO concentration in the hall, an alarm is triggered to warn the staff.

Products from MSR-Electronic protect life and installations.

When it comes to safety, the Red Cross banks on products from MSR-Electronic. Gas warning systems must be reliable at all times. When gas is present, in parking garages or vehicle halls, prompt help and reliable products are needed. The sensors, controllers and warning devices from MSR-Electronic effectively protect people and systems in dangerous situations when combustible or toxic gases occur. With the help of modern communication technology, it is possible to react quickly.

The digital exchange sensor (type SC2) is used for continuous CO monitoring of the ambient air in the vehicle hall. If the average value of 30 ppm is reached, the ventilation system reacts immediately and provides fresh air. When a carbon monoxide concentration of 60 ppm is reached, all warning devices in the hall switch to alarm in the form of light signals. The acoustic warning means - the so-called warning horn - reacts additionally at an alarm threshold of 150 ppm.

Calibration can be carried out by simply exchanging the sensor head or by using the integrated, convenient calibration routine directly at the system.

The Digital-Gas-Controller DGC-06 is a measuring, warning and controlling device system for toxic, combustible gases and vapours as well as refrigerants. It is designed according to EN 50545 and can monitor and evaluate up to 128 gas sensors. Each sensor has 4 freely adjustable alarm thresholds. Freely adjustable parameters and setpoints enable flexible use in gas measurement technology. Various interfaces and protocols are available for connection to a higher-level management system.

The project, which is currently in the final phase, is being supervised on site by our MSR-Austria branch.

Further information on MSR products can be found here in the current MSR-Electronic online catalog or in the webshop:

MSR-Electronic is a manufacturer of fixed gas warning systems with decades of experience in the field of building automation and gas measurement technology. The international company with headquarters in Germany has a wide range of methods for the detection of toxic and combustible gases. On this basis MSR-Electronic develops individual gas sensors, controllers and warning devices for many applications, such as parking garages, tunnels, petrochemical industry or shipping. The products meet more than the general standards and regulations and can therefore guarantee the safety of the plant.
