D-Guard²S

D-Guard²S offers a built in relay board with accompanying sounder strobe. This setup allows for a flexible onsite solution for a fixed monitoring and alarming combination without the need to run cabling back into controllers. This allows for a dramatically reduced system install and running cost. Oxygen monitoring applications now benefit from the optional use of next generation 5 year life oxygen sensors, giving excellent dependability and further reducing system ownership costs.

Designed from the ground up to provide reliable, accurate and flexible gas detection, the D-Guard²S incorporates leading edge technology. From the basic design philosophy that includes functional safety compatible techniques, through to the advanced functionality that provides repeatable and dependable performance. D-Guard²S is powerful, yet simple to use, making it an ideal single solution detector with low ownership cost.

Inclusion of HART communications enables access to a greater depth of information than is possible over a basic current loop signal. Real time gas readings, diagnostic information and sensor testing are available via the HART link. Remote current loop rescaling and test mode triggering is also possible via the HART link.

D-Guard²S includes a high resolution ultra-low power display with super clear text and graphics. The display offers visibility in low light spaces right through to use in direct sunlight. The user interface is intuitive and provides on screen guidance for carrying out calibration and configuration tasks. Sensor temperature compensation results in long term stability, accuracy and reliability. D-Guard²S continually monitors the sensor temperature and applies corrections to both the zero operating point and the response to gas, allowing the detector to remain steady under zero gas conditions and accurate when measuring gas concentration.

Response time testing functionality is integral to D-Guard²S to give a true measurement of dynamic gas monitoring performance. As standards begin to emerge requiring such testing to be carried out, D-Guard²S is equipped to make the task simple. D-Guard²S has been designed to efficiently allow the use of a single board to cover all detector types and ranges for toxic gases, oxygen, flammable gases and carbon dioxide. Configuration is simple and quick via the user interface which is accessed by the supplied magnetic stylus. D-Guard²S is housed in a specialised highly impact resistant non-conductive plastic, static preventing enclosure, which is UV stable.
