All mines recognise the need for a reliable, robust, and low-maintenance atmospheric and environmental monitoring system to enhance safety and production. The Becker Varis smartsense® fixed monitor SSFM-100 is an all-in-one gas sensor neatly packaged into one compact package, with true flexibility and reliability for atmospheric and environmental monitoring.
The configurable multi-gas, four-channel high accuracy gas monitor with full range temperature compensation and its unique 360° Alarm® function is capable of monitoring any combination of gases and with a wide range of external inputs allowing for customer expansion.
The smartsense® product line has been designed to strict international standards and manufactured to local and international regulations to ensure a quality and reliable product for
the harshest of environments. The SSFM-100 has three fully programmable alarm set points for Alarm and Output controls along with Short Term Exposure Limit (STEL) and Time Weighted Average (TWA) limits are displayed on the extra larger LCD display making it possible to view the reading from up to 5 meters away.
The smartsense® fixed monitor SSFM-100 with its integrated controller functions as a black box storing critical information such as calibration record, Alarm History, and Data Logging for post-accident investigation. The SSFM-100 is an all-in-one package and eliminates the need for complex cables connections and troublesome programming, out of the box the SSFM-100 is the most versatile and hassle-free Atmospheric and Environmental System on the market. The SSFM-100 system design has taken into account the requirements of the industry and placed the security and features into a single compact design but still maintaining the main requirement of reliability/accuracy / low power consumption.
Calibrating the SSFM-100 has never been easier with no need for complicated calibration cables and connections or complicated test devices. The process was simplified and only requires the basic understanding of calibration practices and the corresponding calibration gases. Entering the calibration menu function is password protected. Simple enter the calibration password and attach the calibration adapter and follow the screen prompts.
The SSFM-100 design with its versatility in available gas configurations allows for greater flexibility and significant reduction in costs ranging from cost of procurement thru to cost of ownership. With the SSFM-100 all-in-one atmospheric and environmental system each SSFM-100 is a gas monitor / controller allowing for localized use or implementation into a system wide installation using industry standard communication protocols such as Modbus RTU and OPC Connectivity or for integration into legacy systems using 4-20mA.
