Gas Detector Control Panel - 1 Channel Type MCU1 - For Use With An Integral Or Remote Fixed Gas Detector Head. 


Integral sensor options comprise CO2 (Infrared), oxygen, or a wide range of toxic sensors. 
Can be used with the full range of Status Scientific Controls fixed gas detector heads - certified types require use of an integral safety barrier. 
Green, amber and red flashing indicators in lens section. 
Alphanumeric display with backlight. 
Full calibration menu via external push buttons. 
Integral audible alarm. 
Internal sealed lead-acid standby battery. 
Internal safety barrier option. 
Lockable door. 
Water and dust proof to IP66. 
Compatible with industry standard gas detectors and other sensors. 
For installation only in non-explosive atmospheres. 
The MCU1 is a single channel, wall mounting, monitoring and control unit for use in a safe area where there is no risk of the presence of potentially explosive gases. It can be used in either of the following ways:- 
1. Fitted with an integral CO2 (Infrared), oxygen, or toxic sensor for safe area use only. 
2. Connected to a remote CO2 (Infrared), oxygen, or a toxic gas detector head for safe area use only. 
3. Fitted with an internal (or external) safety barrier and connected to a remote certified intrinsically safe (Ex ia) flammable, oxygen or toxic gas detector head sited in a hazardous area. (The range of heads includes flammable and CO2 (Infrared) types). 
4. Connected to a remote flameproof (Ex d) certified flammable, oxygen or toxic gas detector head sited in a hazardous area. (The range of heads includes flammable and CO2 (Infrared) types). In this case a safety barrier is not necessary. 
Internal Safety Barrier 
For applications where the gas detector head (or other sensor type) is sited in a potentially explosive atmosphere, a safety barrier must be fitted in order to limit the maximum voltage and current under a fault condition (e.g. short circuit) such that an incendive spark cannot be created. Where suitable*, the internal safety barrier shown above may be fitted within the control unit. This can either be fitted at the time of manufacture (where requested) or at a later time if the system is extended by the installation of additional detectors. 
*Note that some installations may neccessitate the use of external barriers sited at the safe area/hazardous area interface - see the accessories page.
