Applied Energy Systems (AES) has introduced the GigaGuardTM GSM-VTM controller to replace the GSM-5TM gas safety monitor.
The new controller is part of the company’s SEMI-GAS® line of ultra-high purity gas delivery systems and has been modernised with a 7” colour touchscreen interface as well as an EtherCAT PLC-based control system. The device is also optimised for hassle-free, drop-in replacement by customers to easily upgrade AT-Plus series gas source systems that currently use the GSM-5.
Dave Stetz, Chief Engineer of R&D Controls Technology at AES, says, “Our customers have been asking for a modern alternative to the microprocessor-based GSM-5 controller, and our controls engineering team has delivered it with the GSM-V.”
Stez continued, “The addition of a touchscreen, PLC-based control system and expansion options make it simpler to programme, operate, and configure for each customers’ unique environment. Not only is the GSM-V superior to the GSM-5 in its gas safety monitoring capabilities, but it takes customers just minutes to make the replacement. It is designed to ‘plug and play’ so that with a few steps, they can immediately start experiencing the benefits of these new features.”

The two main technologies used today when designing combustible gas safety monitoring systems are infrared gas detection and catalytic bead gas detection. Both technologies reliably detect gas at or below the lower explosive limit (0-100% LEL).
Michell Instruments has developed a new Pura range of trace moisture transmitters for applications where purity of gases is of critical importance.
