4-16 Channel Controller for Gas Monitors

ST-71P

Item #: ST-71

Product Summary

The PureAire Monitoring Systems ST-71 Graphic Display / Alarm Controller is designed to provide simultaneous display and alarm functions for up to 16 input variables. A graphic LCD displays monitored data as trends, bar graphs and engineering units. Three adjustable alarm levels are provided per channel. Relay outputs allow control of beacons horns and other alarm events. A horn relay may be set for steady or pulsing operation.

The PureAire Monitoring Systems ST-71 Graphic Display / Alarm Controller is designed to provide simultaneous display and alarm functions for up to 16 input variables. A graphic LCD displays monitored data as trends, bar graphs and engineering units. Three adjustable alarm levels are provided per channel. Relay outputs allow control of beacons horns and other alarm events. A horn relay may be set for steady or pulsing operation.

Analog inputs may be accepted and conditioned via sensor specific analog input cards. Alternatively, the standard Modbus Master port allows input data to be retrieved from Modbus slave devices including the many Modbus compatible PureAire Monitoring sensor transmitter products.

The ST-71 is easy to configure and user friendly. Measurement ranges in engineering units, adjustable alarm set-points, dual serial interfaces and many other features combine to allow the ST-71 satisfy the needs of many demanding applications. It is widely used for centralizing the display and alarm processing functions in critical multipoint monitoring applications. These include monitoring of ambient gas detection, rotating machinery, tank levels, flow, temperature and others.

A RS-485 Modbus slave port allows up to 128 ST-71’s to be multidropped onto a single data highway for interrogation by another Modbus master. ST-71’s may also be cascaded by connecting one unit’s master port to another’s slave port.

ST-71 options such as discrete alarm relays per channel, 4- 20mA I/O, direct sensor input conditioning and others are added by connecting appropriate 8 channel boards (2 required for more than 8 channels) to the economical I2C expansion bus. Familiar “telephone style” cables and connectors interface to this bus. This method allows versatile system configuration of options satisfying the most unusual user applications.

Nonvolatile memory retains all configuration data indefinitely.
