SensCast takes a unique approach to solving communication and connectivity challenges found in many gas detection applications. Beginning with proven toxic and oxygen sensors and robust transmitters, SensCast then provides options for linking and communicating sensor measurements, alarm conditions, and faults to local and facility-wide networks, without traditional expensive hard wiring.
The drawings to the right depict common network installations using SensCast to wirelessly communicate within the gas detection system. Wireless systems can be installed indoors or outside with the transmission distance dependent upon many facility-specific factors. Our SensCast Site Survey Tool (SST) calculates network reach and potential RF interferences ensuring optimal setup of your wireless gas detection network.
Drawing 1: SensCast Transmitters transmit wirelessly to the SensCast Receiver. The Receiver sends Transmitter output via wifi or Modbus (wireless or wired). The SensCast Relayer actively “listens” for alarm or fault conditions and activates annunciators or hazard mitigation systems connected to one of 5 relays.
Drawing 2: Two independent networks consisting of a Receiver and 32 SensCast Transmitters (or 16 Dual Head Transmitters) exist in one facility. A Sensidyne wireless-enabled controller (Model 7200 shown) collects all 64 outputs sending them to a DCS or PLC via wireless Modbus. A SensCast Relayer actively “listens” for alarm or fault conditions and activates annunciators or hazard mitigation systems.
