MX16 Gas Control Panel for Single Channel 4-20mA Gas Detectors
  • MX16 Gas Control Panel for Single Channel 4-20mA Gas Detectors
  • MX16 Gas Control Panel 'Easy Duo' for O2 and CO2 Gas Detection

MX16 Gas Detection Control Panel

Quick Overview

The MX16 Controller is designed for monitoring a single gas detector in MRI room, laboratory, storage, small boiler room, and breweries or battery charging rooms. The MX16 measuring unit prevents the risks of gas building up in areas that could be anoxic, toxic or explosive gases in ambient air. Units are available pre-configured for 4-20mA outputs from O2, CO2, CH4, H2, LPG gas detectors, or as an 'Easy Duo' set with an OLCT10N for O2 or CO2 gases. Controller comes with 3 relay outputs, RS485 output and LCD display with soft-touch function keys.
