Ampcontrol’s Gasguard Flammable Gas Sensor/Transmitter (ATEX) is supplied complete with an amplifier and a Liquid Crystal Display. The Gas sensor is housed in a cast stainless steel enclosure, has been approved to be intrinsically safe and is suitable for use in a Zone 0 hazardous area. A remote head version with up to ten metres of cable is also available for use on mobile machinery such as roof bolters and continuous miners.
In May 2018, the iMAC / iMAC2 Controller operating system firmware was modified to extend the iMAC Module Serial Number range. These changes occurred in iMAC Controller Operating System Firmware v4.0 (O.S. v4.0). Marcus Punch Pty Ltd was engaged to perform a safety integrity verification of these changes. iMAC2 report AMP-15-01-A1 Revision 3 (including Revisions 4 & 5) and iMAC report AMP-11-05-A2 Revision 2 (including Revisions 3 & 4) assessed these changes to be in compliance with the requirements pertaining to software modification and as a result the existing safety metrics (PFD and PFH) for the iMAC Controller, iMAC2 Controller, 2-wire and 3-wire iMAC systems remain unchanged.
iMAC Modules typically need to be programmed (configured) when connected to the iMAC L1 Fieldbus communication line. The iMAC Controller is used to program the modules. Each module (data register) must be programmed with an address and up to three other parameters. The parameters are used to control how a particular module behaves.
The user manual for the programmable ISA (Part # 121603) depicts a 1.9V DC voltage drop across the ISA when used in 4-20mA mode.
The user manual should state a voltage drop range of 1.9V – 4.3V DC.

Comparing Ampcontrol’s AWARE Industrial Internet of Things offering with traditional telemetry on a range of features and functions.
Ampcontrol AWARE simply connects your physical world with the digital one. Ampcontrol AWARE introduces a new way of approaching remote monitoring and control. It no longer has to be complicated, time consuming or expensive to get access to your data and respond to it. In sewer pumping stations this means simplifying the installation, reducing the number of components and shortening the installation and commissioning time to provide significant cost savings.
Ampcontrol AWARE simply connects your physical world with the digital one. Our flexible, scalable and cost effective Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) solution provides the information needed to drive informed operational decisions.
