August 2009 Vol. 236 No. 8

Detcon’s Model 880-N4X is a PLC-based control-and-alarm system designed to monitor and control multiple gas-detection sensors and other field devices.

The main system is programmed as a Modbus master with two options available; the Model 880S-N4X for up to 32 addressable field devices, and Model 880A-N4X for up to 72 analog devices via Detcon’s DA4 Modules (4 channels per module; up to 18 modules). Both system options are field-configurable and do not require the support of a PLC programmer or engineering services. The Model 880-N4X features a touch screen that is used to access system menus including configuration, utilities, and alarm history. www.detcon.com.
