The FieldServer FGFD ProtoAir IoT gateway gives users a secure, cost-effective way to seamlessly connect MSA’s FGFD products to third-party systems or to the cloud for remote monitoring, even in hazardous environments.

The FieldServer FGFD ProtoAir gateway is preprogrammed to instantly connect MSA’s FGFD products to third-party systems. The ProtoAir comes with FGFD profiles that allow it to interface with SCADAs using protocols such as BACnet/IP, EtherNet/IP, and many more.

The ProtoAir’s integrated cloud connectivity provided by MSA's Grid enables FGFD Modbus and BACnet products to send SMS or E-Mail fault and alarm notifications. Administrators will know remotely when a FGFD instrument needs calibration or when a device fault has occurred and what that fault is. Users can configure dashboards, view logged data, download historical data, and provide safe remote access via the internet for product commissioning and troubleshooting.

The ProtoAir provides secure local and Internet connections. Its hardware has passed extensive third-party penetration tests, ensuring the ProtoAir meets market cyber security standards. Additionally, the MSA Grid is consistently tested against current cyber security standards so that clients can be confident their data is private and secure.

Available in a NEMA 4 enclosure, the ProtoAir safely connects FGFD products installed in hazardous locations to third-party systems. The ProtoAir also offers Cellular, Wi-Fi, and Ethernet capabilities for network connectivity, permitting users to remotely access and program equipment.
