The B5/Q5 Toxic/Combustible Gas Detectors use various sensing technologies to detect a wide assortment of gases. These units are housed in a NEMA 4X-rated plastic enclosure that will meet the most stringent applications. All models feature an internal clock, LCD Display for displaying gas concentrations and setup, LED Status Indication, integral buzzer with three user-configurable relays, and a number of different communication protocols for use with one of our gas controllers or your building management system. Factory-calibrated sensor module replacements are available and are easily replaced in the field by removing two screws on the previous module. All units should be checked for proper functionality and calibration once the replacement sensor module is reinstalled and has had a chance to warm up. A user-selectable password can be used to protect the system’s integrity. The Q5 can be used as a standalone controller or in conjunction with the Q4C, M-Controller, or Q-Controllers using the proprietary RS-485 Optomux communication protocol. The B5 uses BACnet MSTP (RS485) protocol to communicate directly with a BAS.
