Although the MultiSafe MX modular control system from ProDetec performs like a safety PLC it differs significantly from these devices because it is certified to specific fire detection, suppression release and intruder detection standards.
The control system has been approved by TUV for use as a SIL 2 or SIL 3 system. It also meets the most stringent demands for industrial fire and gas detection, suppression and intruder alarm panels.
The design of the control system incorporates integrated systems which include fire, intruder/burglar alarm, CCTV and control functions. It has a safety and security system network where nodes are interconnected as well as being connected to an external DCS.
The fire protection systems have dedicated voting and redundancy logic and the fire alarm systems can be designed according to the recommendations of the NFPA 72. The gas detection and measurement systems are capable of interfacing with any 4-20mA output toxic or flammable gas detectors.
