Available with Modbus® or BACnet® communication with BAS, supports 4-20 mA and Modbus® driven VFDs
The FCS-8 Flexible Control System is a sophisticated, high performance controller that offers up to 128 gas channel configurations for monitoring toxic, combustible and refrigerant gases with versatile control functionality for non-hazardous, non-explosion rated, commercial and light industrial applications. The FCS is designed to accept inputs from digital and/or analog transmitters and/or Peripheral Devices (in various combinations), using Modbus® RTU RS-485 or 4-20 mA analog input.
The FCS-8 is available in two models: the FCS-8-M with Modbus® RTU RS-485 WAN output or the FCS-8-B with BACnet® MS/TP RS-485 WAN output for communicating with a Building Automation System (BAS). Standard features include, four configurable SPDT dry contact relays with field configurable time delays and trigger levels, a full colour LCD resistive touch screen with LED panel indicating configurable channel alarm status, relay status and fault conditions, extensive menu system with password protection, enhanced logic control, priorities/zoning capabilities, a USB port for firmware upgrades, data logging and a door-mounted, audible alarm. The FCS has flexible configuration settings for analog outputs and supports 4-20 mA and Modbus® driven VFDs.
Optional value added features include, analog inputs and/or analog outputs, a top mounted strobe, a locking door, a manual shut off switch and a water tight, door-mounted audible alarm.
The FCS can can be connected to several remote devices such as a remote strobe & horn, a Remote Display Module, an LNK-AO Analog Output device and an LNK-XT Network Extender. It can accommodate up to a maximum of 12 relays, including the 4 internal relays and either two RLY-4 Remote Relays or one RLY-8 Remote Relay device. It can also be configured to comply with California Title-24 Building Energy Efficiency Standards. (Specification details need to be given at time of order and additional settings can be implemented in the field as required.)
