Medical Gas Alarm Management Systems
The Alarm Management System is an integral component of the Dräger Gas Management System. It allows comprehensive monitoring of your medical gas supply system. Emergency and operational signals are recorded by data collectors and made accessible to the entire network. Data can be displayed either locally or at a central monitoring station.
To transfer signals and readings from the Alarm Management System to a central Building Management System, the GMS Gateway is used. The Gateway translates the signals from the Alarm Management System into the LONWorks standard, which can be processed by most conventional process control systems.
Due to the decentralised design, new components can be added or existing configurations can be changed at any time, and since a standard data transfer protocol is used, new components will always be able to communicate with the existing system. As each component has a separate function, existing systems can also easily add on and make use of those new functionalities. Thus, your Gas Management System can be easily brought up to date as required.
The system consists of a series of separate components which communicate via data line. Each component is designed for a specific task and is capable of processing the necessary signals from the system. A special alarm system interface collects the data from the pressure monitoring and the optional gas consumption meters and makes these available to the system. Alarm signals can then be transferred to a Monitor 6G or a Monitor LLT, or even to a central Building Management System, independently.
Because of its modular design, the Alarm Management System can be precisely tailored to the circumstances on site. Depending on the number of signals, more or less data collectors or displays are used. A configuration software is used to regulate the interplay between components.
