MGA 1200CS 

MGA 1200CS CyberSecure Mass Spectrometer Gas Analyzer

Designed with IIoT in Mind, Comes with Standard Cybersecure Communication Options 

Our Extrel MGA™ 1200CS™ Mass Spectrometer Gas Analyzer advances the state-of-the-art in process mass spectrometry with the first CyberSecure PLC enabled mass spectrometer.  This process mass spectrometer is a fixed magnetic sector analyzer that provides rapid, accurate and stable real-time analysis of up to 16 gas components in multiple gas streams. It’s the fastest process mass spec on the market.  With the ability to interface to process streams with capability of driving both rotary and solenoid manifolds, it delivers unmatched stability provides best-in industry drift specification and longest intervals for calibration.  Only one single analyzer to calibrate and maintain.

Designed with IIoT in mind, the control architecture is based on the Modicon M580 ePAC programmed with EcoStruxure Control Expert software. The Magelis touch-screen HMI provides full support for secure role-based access permissions and stored audit trails for end-to-end cybersecurity.

    The hazardous area compliant HMI for the MGA 1200CS Mass Spectrometer Gas Analyzer provides full access to system configuration, real-time data, stored data, system status and diagnostics. The native ethernet control architecture provides industrial connectivity for SCADA, DCS, SIS and Data Historians.
