Bacharach MGS-400 Gas Detection Series

Bacharach gas detectors simplify safety

Bacharach, a provider of HVAC-R gas instrumentation, announces the introduction of the MGS-400 Gas Detection Series for commercial and industrial refrigerant and gas leak detection applications.

MGS-400 gas detectors support safety compliance inside of chiller plants, cold storage facilities and walk-in freezers by monitoring for dangerous refrigerant leaks for numerous gases including HFCs, HFOs, HCFCs, CO2 and NH3 (ammonia). The ability to detect refrigerant leaks and quickly initiate alarm systems helps protect personnel and achieve compliance with safety standards like ASHRAE 15, CSA-B52 and EN 378.

These detectors are supported by a mobile app user interface, making configuration, calibration and maintenance simple and intuitive. Reducing commissioning and installation time, MGS-400s deliver on efficiency and cost savings while allowing for plug-and-play, pre-calibrated sensor installation and replacement in the field.

Using the mobile app and plug-and-play sensors, gas detectors are installed in significantly less time—for example, five minutes versus 25 minutes per detector without training. Calibration certificates can be generated from the mobile app and sent by email or shared to cloud storage platforms.

The optional MGS-408 Gas Detection Controller supports up to eight sensor channels and enables a centralized alarm and power system. With Modbus connectivity, the controller integrates with any facility’s existing building management or automation system. The MGS-408 also connects with Bacha-rach’s MGS-250 IR-based refrigerant monitor and the dual-sensor MGS-550, allowing for flexibility of individual site requirements. Power and communication connectivity from the controller to all sensors can be done with a single cable in a daisy-chain design.
