Arras, France (PRWEB) May 02, 2011
Oldham, an Industrial Scientific company and leading global provider of fixed gas detection equipment and services, today introduced the WX Series of gas detection alarm controllers. The new product line consists of three controllers: WX4 (four-channel controller), the WX16 (16-channel controller) and the WX64 (64-channel controller).
The WX4 is designed for continuous monitoring of up to four analog or digital gas measurements. Its optional wireless technology can receive and transmit gas readings wirelessly, providing substantial wiring cost savings and application flexibility.
The WX16, designed for the continuous monitoring of up to 16 analog or digital gas measurements, comes standard with two RS-485 ports and can be configured to receive and transmit wirelessly. Other features include programmable relays, a backlit LCD screen and 24-hour data logging.
The WX64 is designed for the continuous monitoring of up to 64 analog or digital gas measurements. It offers a rich set of features including a color display, data logging via 2GB SD Card, zoning, dual RS-485 ports and programmable relays. The WX64 also has a convenient embedded Web page that enables remote viewing and configuration of all 64 channels via a standard Web browser.
In addition to the individual features, the WX Series controllers offer the convenience of communicating seamlessly with each other via their analog, digital or wireless signals. This provides the flexibility to enable local area controllers to report their readings back to a primary alarm controller.
The WX Series alarm controllers represent an exciting new offering from Oldham, says Tom Cunningham, President, Oldham. The range of communication options and rich functionality offered by these controllers allows Oldham to better serve our expanding customer base around the world.
