The Dräger Regard 7000 is a state-of-the-art modular control system for monitoring various gases and vapors. Its flexible expandability ensures long term viability for gas detection systems of increasing complexity. The Regard 7000 offers up to a maximum of 1536 combined channel inputs and outputs In addition, it is backward compatible with previous Regard systems.
Dräger designed the Regard 7000 for a wide range of applications and configurations in the energy industry. It processes analog transmitter input signals supporting remote access via HART (Highway Addressable Remote Transducer). HART simplifies installation, configuration, maintenance, and documentation of the gas detection system. A Modbus RTU (remote terminal unit) output is available for retransmitting gas detection data to higher-level systems. The most demanding alarm logic sequences can easily be programmed, such as delays for process optimisation.
More safety, fewer false alarms
The “Masterless” system architecture of the Regard 7000 prevents the entire system from failing if one component fails (single point of failure). In addition, it is easy to add independent subsystems. False alarms and false faults are effectively reduced by optimised signal conditioning filters, manual alarm suppression, and the automatic comparison of analog and digital transmissions.
Special analog transmitter signals such as errors or warnings are indicated as text messages, making them easy for anyone to identify. A simple, easy to read menu layout with user-friendly icons also simplifies operations and increases a plant’s safety.
