Danfoss Introduces New Digital Fixed Gas Detectors for Industrial Refrigeration

Danfoss introduces fixed gas detectors that offer compliance and accuracy, and are intuitive to work with.

As the world’s leading industrial refrigeration innovator, Danfoss is pleased to introduce a new range of fixed gas detectors for industrial refrigeration applications. The new digital gas detectors are not only compliant and accurate, but are also much easier and intuitive to work with, from initial specification to long-term operation.

Next Generation Gas Detection — Plug and Play

The next generation of Danfoss gas detectors are based on a digital platform that delivers multiple communication and integration options for improved operational reliability, easy calibration and maintenance procedures that enable high service efficiency and regulatory compliance. Additionally, the intuitive user-interface provides a high level of accuracy to simplify operator handling that minimizes operational, settings, and calibration error risks. The portfolio ranges from basic to heavy-duty models with sensor technology to match the specific refrigerant, application, and safety requirements of your refrigeration system.

Easy Configuration and Installation

The analog or RS485 Modbus connection enables easy communication to a central system. Stand-alone gas detection units with integrated relays are available and can be connected to external systems directly to activate alarm devices.

To provide a strong plug and play solution, all gas detection units come factory pre-configured to match refrigerant and PPM setting requirements.

Calibration and Maintenance Made Easy

For a more simplified calibration process, the new range of Danfoss gas detection units have an integrated calibration routine. Gas calibration no longer requires potentiometers and multimeters, simplifying the process significantly and reducing calibration time and the risk of errors. Pre-calibrated and factory certified sensor replacements are available across all sensor types for easy service.

Improved Operational Reliability and Maintenance Efficiency

Several service features support optimized maintenance planning such as service alerts — on the unit, the controller, or both — to indicate when service is due. The dedicated PC tool provides an overview of when each gas detection unit operates as well as generate field calibration reports to support safety documentation and procedures.

The Danfoss gas detection portfolio enables regulatory compliance with EN 378:2016, ISO 5149:2014, IIAR 2-2017, and ASHRAE 15:2016 while providing comprehensive safety and easy-to-use features.

Taco Introduces Clarity3™ Building Automation System

Clarity3 by Taco Comfort Solutions is an easy-to-use turnkey building automation system.

Clarity3 by Taco Comfort Solutions® is a simple, turnkey building automation system (BAS) designed entirely by experts who install and use these systems.

Unlike many commercial building control systems which are designed around hardware with closed systems that are hard to customize, overly complex, and not very scalable, Clarity3 takes the guesswork out of optimizing equipment operation, and energy savings, by establishing an intelligent framework for connectivity. Clarity3 uses the BACnet protocol to provide an incredibly flexible, simple, and yet fully programmable BAS.

Clarity3 BAS is based on a find/learn/act approach that simplifies the interrelationship of connected systems.

The “find” theme is about narrowing focus: Building owners and users need features like easy navigation, searching and bookmarking. The “learn” function is about gathering insights: dashboards, reports and graphics ease the learning. “Act” is all about restoring order with features like commands, and to provide notifications if problems arise.

Because of its user-friendly interface, Clarity3 helps building owners quickly narrow their focus with easy to use dashboards, reports and graphics. Controls integrators will appreciate the ease of installation and mobile functionality of Clarity3. It follows standards, yet is customizable and scalable to all building types. Clarity3 is designed to increase productivity and lower operational expenses.

FLIR Announces DM62 Digital Multimeter With Non-Contact Voltage

WILSONVILLE, Ore. — FLIR recently announced the DM62 true root mean square (TRMS) digital multimeter with non-contact voltage, an all-in-one tool ideal for do-it-yourself and residential and commercial electricians, as well as technicians who work on electronic systems. Its rich and robust feature set, high-quality measurements, and low price make it an exceptional value. This meter is easy to use and has been built to last, offering long-term stability and robust-built quality for field use.

The FLIR DM62 is ideal for DIY-ers or professionals who install and maintain electrical and electronic systems.

The DM62 measures AC/DC voltage, current (A, mA, µA), and resistance/continuity for electronic system troubleshooting. Its intuitive and simple user interface allows for more effective and efficient troubleshooting and testing of electrical and electronic systems. It offers a variable-frequency drive (VFD) mode and an extended voltage measurement range up to 1,000 volts for electrical system measurements.

With non-contact voltage detection, the DM62 features a visual indicator and audible beep tones proportional to the field strength. The flashing backlight and audible indication simplify the task of checking wiring connections and switch operation in noisy work environments.

Equipped with extensive standard equipment, the unit comes with batteries, high-quality silicone test leads, integral test lead storage/holder, and a rugged soft carrying case.
