Tyco Gas & Flame Detection is pleased to announce that the MX 43 alarm and control system is now certified to or above SIL 1 performance level. The controller underwent extensive functional safety assessments by third party agency INERIS and was found to be in compliance with EN 6007-29-1: 2007 and EN 50271: 2010 health and safety standards.

The MX 43 is a highly versatile alarm and control system available in four or eight line versions and monitors up to 16 or 32 detectors.  The controller has on-board fully programmable relays, data logging capability and calibration data records. During normal operation a large display screen shows specified gas, measurement range, detector address, status and includes a bar graph with alarm threshold set points.  

The MX 43 has an expansive storage/recording capacity of more than two years in most configurations with its optional internal USB module. The USB allows for continuous data logging at a sampling rate of two seconds to 15 minutes, real-time recording of all events, and automatic backup of configuration settings and firmware. Configuration settings and firmware files can also be loaded from the 4GB USB drive to restore or update a system. Certifications include EMC, ATEX, GOST and MED.
