Vault Gas Monitor 2400

Vault Gas Monitor 2400

Sierra Monitor’s Vault Gas Monitor 2400 is a continuous combustible gas and Carbon Monoxide (CO) monitor for personnel and facility safety in controlled environment vaults (CEVs).

The Model 2400 is ideal to reduce the hazard of gas explosion and to maintain personnel safety. Each variation of the Model 2400 offers the full performance gas detection functions required by telecom site managers including uninterrupted power supply, long-life sensors, five alarm relays, and both audible and visual alarm indication.

The sensors on the Model 2400 are mounted on the downward facing surface of the enclosure to be protected from dust and moisture contamination. The sensors can easily be replaced without removal of the monitor from its permanent mounting. Two of the sensors are for gas detection and the third contains thermocouple devices to allow temperature compensation of the gas sensors.
