Dräger REGARD® 7000

The Dräger REGARD® 7000 is a modular and therefore highly expandable analysis system for monitoring various gases and vapours. Suitable for gas warning systems with various levels of complexity and numbers of transmitters, the Dräger REGARD® 7000 also features exceptional reliability and efficiency. An additional benefit is the backward compatibility with the REGARD®.

Individual and highly compatible

The Dräger REGARD 7000 has been designed to meet individual requirements and suit a wide range of different infrastructures. It processes analogue transmitter signals and supports remote access via HART®. In addition the REGARD 7000 provides a Modbus-Master interface1. Modbus RTU, PROFIBUS®2 and PROFINET®2 interfaces enable information in higher-level systems to be processed. Complex alarms can be fitted to suit your individual requirements, and switching delays can be configured to optimise your processes. The modular structure of the REGARD 7000 makes it possible to adapt the design of the system to suit your exact needs. The system can be altered or extended with ease. You can also connect existing REGARD equipment to the new REGARD 7000. The advantages of the REGARD 7000 in terms of overview and documentation can therefore be translated to the entire system.

Safe and secure with minimal false alarms

The REGARD 7000 uses a ‘masterless’ system architecture. This prevents the entire system from failing if one component fails (single point of failure). It also makes it easier to add on independent subsystems. The use of optimised software filters in signal preparation, the option of suppressing the alarm and the comparison of analogue and digital transmitted measurement values mean that false alarms are prevented more effectively than ever before. Special signals (errors, warnings, etc.) that are transmitted in analogue form are always correctly identified, facilitating the assessment process.

Optimal installation and configuration

Channel configuration is made significantly faster and more secure using metadata, transmitted via HART®, from the transmitter or the configuration assistant. The logical restrictions on the possible manual settings effectively prevent incorrect configurations. The REGARD 7000 supports operation by preparing documents directly at the source. A simple menu structure and user-friendly displays on the dashboard, as well as the easy-to-learn operation and the associated symbols, ensure that operation is as safe and secure as possible. You can prepare the configuration via PC software offline and upload it to the system later. The wiring can be clearly structured and tidied away before the main components are installed.

Maintenance and documentation — as efficient as possible

The REGARD 7000 is able to use HART® communication, thereby making it possible to maintain your gas warning system much more efficiently. It allows you to access all connected HART®-enabled transmitters remotely from a central point. This ensures better preparation of maintenance work with respect to the provision of materials and tools. It also makes it easier to guide service personnel with greater accuracy. Simulations can be started on the transmitter via remote access³, for example to test allocations. The documentation frequently required by monitoring institutions, for example, can also be generated by the REGARD 7000. This documentation is made available without the need for additional tools.
