Rig Rat III Wireless Multi-Point Gas Detection System
The Stand-Alone Solution
The rugged Rig Rat III detection system provides multipoint monitoring for toxic gases, combustibles and oxygen hazards. Self powered and solar capable, the Rig Rat III features unequalled versatility, with an extensive range of field configurations. With real time, two-way data transmission and remote sensing capabilities, the Rig Rat III represents the new generation of stand-alone system technology. Rig Rat III is self contained and intrinsically safe.
Rig Rat III is completely modular in design, with plug in ports for all system components and field interfaces: remote sensors, remote alarms, relays, solar power, etc. Microprocessor based operation and advanced sensor technology ensure reliability and performance. Cost-effectiveness is a hallmark of the Rig Rat III. Trenching and cabling costs are eliminated through wireless, two-way digital RF data transmission. Maintenance free combustible sensors reduce the need for costly upkeep requirements.
The Rig Rat III stainless steel controllers are the central communication center for the Rig Rat III gas detection system. The standard Rig Rat III controller allows the simultaneous display of readings and alarm state messages for up to eight remotely located sensors. The system uses a built-in digital 2.4 GHz license-free ISM band (RF) transceiver, which allows two way real time communication with system elements located up to 1.8 miles (3 km) away. The controller is in constant communication with system elements. Detectors transmit a discretely coded radio signal to the controller, advising the detector of a gas alarm or integrity alarm condition.
A wide range of rugged, versatile, plug-in options enable you to configure a system to meet your specific monitoring needs. Add, change or move system components as requirements evolve.
