Bachrach has introduced the MGS-400 Gas Detection Series for commercial and industrial refrigerant and gas leak detection applications.

The US based company’s MGS-400 gas detectors support safety compliance inside of machinery rooms, mechanical rooms, chiller plants, cold storage facilities, and walk-in freezers by monitoring for dangerous refrigerant leaks.

The ability to detect refrigerant leaks and quickly initiate alarm systems helps to protect personnel and achieve compliance with safety standards like ASHRAE 15, CSA-B52 and EN 378. 

MGS-400 series refrigerant gas detectors are supported by a mobile app, making user interface, configuration and maintenance simple and intuitive. The MGS-400 is cost efficient while allowing for plug-and-play, pre-calibrated sensor installation and replacement in the field. 

The use of the mobile app and plug-and-play sensors allows gas detectors to be installed in less time. Calibration certificates can be generated from the app and sent via email or shared to cloud storage platforms.

The optional MGS-408 Gas Detection Controller supports up to eight sensor channels and enables a centralised alarm and power system. With Modbus connectivity, the controller integrates with any facility’s existing building management or automation system.

The MGS-408 will connect with Bacharach’s MGS-250 IR-based refrigerant monitor and the dual-sensor MGS-550, allowing for flexibility of individual site requirements. Power and communication connectivity from the controller to all sensors can be done with a single cable in a daisy-chain design.
