Sentinel SiteWatch offers advanced remote networking for gas detection

Technews Industry Guide - Wireless 2015 Industrial Wireless

Detcon has introduced the Sentinel SiteWatch, an advanced networking device that provides safety-critical information of gas and flame detection systems through Ethernet or cellular communications.

The system connects Detcon wired or wireless gas and flame detection systems to a smartphone, tablet, laptop or desktop computer, and provides email messaging with date and time stamps for all alarm and fault conditions that occur.

The Ethernet version includes a webpage that can be accessed from anywhere in the world and allows real-time viewing of detector type, serial number, location/name, gas concentration, gas type, alarm and fault status, along with battery life and communication link quality for wireless systems. Strong SSL/TLS-based encryption is used to provide communication security over the Internet. The Sentinel SiteWatch connects to Detcon Controllers X40, MCX-32, and Site Sentinel SmartWireless CXT, through RS-485.
