Series B14 – Gas Detection System Receivers

The Series B14 Receivers are compact electronic modules that provide local alarm, display and signal transmission functions for gas detection systems. The modules are designed to accept input from either two, three or four wire 4-20 mA transmitters. The transmitters can be located up to 10,000 feet from the receiver. They are ideally suited for use with ATI’s toxic or combustible gas transmitters.

Features

  •  The Model B14 alarm receivers are DIN rail mounted modules that can be supplied in single or multiple unit enclosures.
  • Gas concentrations are indicated directly in ppm, ppb, percent or percent LEL with the display range selectable by the user.
  • Each module provides separate caution, warning, and alarm setpoints with LED bar indicators of each alarm point. LED indicators flash on initial alarm condition and change to steady on when the alarm is indicated.
  • Modules contain individual relays for each alarm setpoint. However, each relay can be assigned to any setpoint to allow multiple alarm functions at a single alarm point. Relays are configurable for either standard or fail safe operation and for either latching or non-latching operation.
  • A fourth LED alarm bar and relay are provided to indicate trouble conditions. The trouble alarm and relay will activate on loss of input signal or it the 4-20 mA input drops below a specific value.
  • Isolated input contacts are provided to allow an unpowered switch input for acknowledgement of alarm conditions from a remote location or via telemetry equipment.
  • Modules provide a 24 VDC power supply to operate either 2 or 3 wire transmitters
  • A 4-20 mA output is provided from each module, optically isolated from the input signal to avoid ground fault problems.
  • B14 modules are powered from a 12 VDC power supply available as an option and up to 3 modules can be powered from one power supply (or 2 battery backup is used). Customers provided 12-28 VDC supplies may also be used.
