The Model TA-2016MB Digital Control Panel provides up to 16 channels of continuous gas detection monitoring. The Control Panel utilizes a Network architecture that allows field installed gas detectors to be connected in a 'daisy-chain' configuration, sharing power and network cables, for simplified, less costly installations. The digital communications provides exceptional diagnostic capability with continuous 'talking' between the Control Panel and gas detectors. The Control Panel features a channel configuration wizard for rapid, simple setup of all channels. Configuration is automated and seamless through Network communications. The Control Panel continuously monitors all field installed gas detectors to provide meter readings, alarm status and comprehensive diagnostics. Optional Network modules (remote relays, alarm stations, analog/digital converters, etc.) may be installed to meet application requirements. All Network devices are supervised and automated by the Control Panel. The Control Panel is available in a 16-channel Wall Mounting configuration or standard 19 inch Rack Mount chassis. The Rack configuration allows up to 48 channels in a single 19 inch chassis.
