HazardWatch FX-12 Fire & Gas System Released
Fixed Gas & Flame Detection
Representing the next generation of highly intelligent monitoring solutions, we are pleased to announce the release of the HazardWatch FX-12 Fire & Gas System, designed to help reduce hazard vulnerability and meet the world’s most demanding safety standards.
The new HazardWatch FX-12 Fire and Gas System combines the safety and automation expertise of the proven leaders in both industries. Developed with MSA’s gas/flame detection and systems integration experience, as well as the process control/automation proficiency of Rockwell Automation, the HazardWatch FX-12 System is a powerful and flexible total safety solution designed to protect people, equipment, facilities, and nearby communities.
Representing the next generation of highly intelligent monitoring solutions, the HazardWatch FX-12 System is designed to help reduce hazard vulnerability and meet the world’s most demanding safety standards.
The FX-12 System is designed with Rockwell Automation’s industry-proven Allen-Bradley ControlLogix™ programmable logic controller (PLC) technology and MSA’s advanced gas and flame detection field devices. Allen-Bradley DLR-enabled communication protocols allow secure integration with other Rockwell products. Offering intelligence, flexibility, and reliability, the system’s controller hardware configuration and software have been tested by Factory Mutual to verify NFPA 72 (2013) compliance.
A complete solution in a single system, the HazardWatch FX-12 System includes:
- support for up to 12 field devices per alarm panel, with the capability to network additional panels
- a stand-alone local fire and gas alarm panel with touch screen operator interface
- a redundant power supply to support the fire and gas system per NFPA 72
- easy integration with third-party auxiliary devices such as horns, beacons, and fire suppression systems
- FM-approved EtherNet/IP system communications to DCS or ESD Systems, with Modbus
For safety monitoring on-site or in the cloud, the HazardWatch FX-12’s optional MSA FieldServer Gateway supports sharing critical operational data 24/7 via BACnet, EtherNet/IP, Modbus, SNMP, and a host of other protocols. MSA’s FieldServer solutions help support fire alarm panels and the HazardWatch FX-12 Fire and Gas System by notifying the SCADA system of events in the field.
