Smart design

The Area Control Units can be integrated both technically and visually in any hospital department. The display unit can be individually labeled with the gas type and the department monitored. Pressure levels, operating and alarm signals can always be clearly identified.

Multifunctional use

From one to five gases and vacuum lines can be routed through the Area Control Unit, depending on your individual needs. The compact, stainless steel unit can be easily integrated into drywalls or mounted in or on conventional walls.

Use in case of emergency

In case of emergency, the door of the Area Control Unit can be opened by pushing in the emergency access button. The clearly organized valves can then be quickly and safely shut off. If the gas supply has been interrupted, the emergency inlets can be used to connect local external gas sources.

Reliable monitoring

Pressure sensors electronically monitor all gas pressures. Optical and acoustic alarm functions immediately indicate any malfunction. Pressures are displayed independent of the power supply.
