Field programmable alarm and control system
March 2017, PLCs, DCSs & Controllers


Detcon Model X40 is a low-power alarm and control system designed to monitor multiple gas detection sensors and a wide range of other field devices. The versatile control system is designed to receive and supervise inputs using either 4-20 mA or serial RS-485 Modbus and is available in two packages: Model X40-8 and Model X40-32. Both packages function as a Modbus master and can be customised and expanded, based on individual application needs using Detcon’s stackable DIN-rail mounted I/O modules. All modules are individually addressable and operate on 11,5– 30 VDC. The X40-8 provides power for up to eight field devices and can house up to six 4-channel I/O modules. The X40-32 provides power for up to 32 field devices and can house up to twelve 4-channel I/O modules. Detcon I/O modules include a 4-channel 4-20 mA input module, a 4-alarm relay output module, a 4-channel 4-20 mA output module and a 4-relay contact input module. The modules can be mounted within the main system enclosure or installed remotely to simplify field wiring.

The Model X40 is completely field programmable using a small handheld magnet and offers advanced technology with intuitive, embedded intelligence. The control system displays real-time readings and field device status on a backlit LCD screen. During normal operation the screen displays the alarm status and current reading (ie, channel number, gas type, and gas concentration) for up to eight field devices simultaneously. The display is sequential and during normal operation it auto cycles through each of the active channel screens. A wireless option is available that can be used with Detcon’s RXT-320 SmartWireless transceivers.

Typical applications are found in the oil and gas, food and beverage, water, and pulp and paper industries.
