Electrical Gas Release Control System E-GAS



The Electrical Gas Release Control System E-GAS is designed for control of fixed gas fire-extinguishing systems as defined in the International Maritime Organization MSC/Circ. 848, as referred to in SOLAS 74, for Machinery Spaces and Cargo Pump Rooms, as amended by MSC.1/Circ. 1267. The electrical gas release system offers versatiles advantages over a pneumatic gas release system:

  • possibility to connect multiple release panels to one system
  • simple and intuitiv control of up to 5 extinguishing sections with only one release panel
  • control of the release system from different locations
  • teh release system can control up to 32 extinguishing sections
  • display with indication of the actual system state
  • safe operation due to system self supervision
  • monitored circuits
  • monitored cylinder pressure
  • integrated test function for pre alarm devices
  • space saving equipment
  • simple installation
  • interface to ship`s automation system

The electrical release control system E-GAS offers two concepts for the release of the gas containers:
Variant A: Electrical release of all gas containers.
Variant B: Electrical release of the first and the last gas container, further gas containers will be released pneumatically by the first and the last container.
