Applied Energy Systems Introduces New Gas Safety Monitor

News

New controller modernised with colour touchscreen interface and EtherCAT PLC-based control system

Applied Energy Systems (AES) has introduced the GigaGuard GSM-V Controller to replace the GSM-5 Gas Safety Monitor, a legacy technology from the company's SEMI-GAS line of ultra-high purity gas delivery systems.

The new controller has been modernised with a colour touchscreen interface as well as an EtherCAT PLC-based control system, and is optimised for hassle-free, drop-in replacement by customers to easily upgrade AT-Plus Series gas source systems that currently use the GSM-5. For legacy switchover systems, (2) GSM-V controllers replace (2) GSM-5 controllers, (1) AS200 controller, and (1) MPC controller.

The GSM-V, which conforms to SEMI S2 standards, is identical to its predecessor in form factor, shape, dimension (8inch T x 10inch W x 12inch D), and mounting and connector locations, but now includes added features to improve ease of use and monitoring flexibility.

Upgrades to this programmable controller include: a 7 inch Beckoff colour touchscreen interface that offers step by step guides for purging, cylinder changeout, daily operations, data logging, and input and output configurations to minimize human error; Control for eight solenoid valves, with the option for expansion to control up to 14 solenoid valves; monitors digital and analogue process sensor inputs and eight configurable Form C relay outputs; and Ethernet-ready communications and capability to integrate with a facility's safety monitoring system.

"Our customers have been asking for a modern alternative to the microprocessor-based GSM-5 controller, and our controls engineering team has delivered it with the GSM-V," said Dave Stetz, chief engineer of R&D Controls Technology at Applied Energy Systems.

"The addition of a touchscreen, PLC-based control system, and expansion options make it simpler to program, operate, and configure for each customer's unique environment. Not only is the GSM-V superior to the GSM-5 in its gas safety monitoring capabilities, but it takes customers just minutes to make the replacement. It is designed to "˜plug and play' so that with a few steps, they can immediately start experiencing the benefits of these new features."
