The Drager REGARD 7000 is a modular and highly expandable analysis system for monitoring various gases and vapours. Suitable for gas warning systems with multiple levels of complexity and numbers of transmitters, the REGARD 7000 also features exceptional reliability and efficiency. An additional benefit is the backward compatibility with the REGARD.
Individual and highly compatible
The REGARD 7000 has been designed to meet individual requirements and suit various infrastructures. It processes analogue transmitter signals and supports remote access via HART. In addition, the REGARD 7000 provides a Modbus-Master interface1. Modbus RTU, PROFIBUS2, and PROFINET2 interfaces enable information processing in higher-level systems. Complex alarms can suit your requirements, and switching delays can be configured to optimise your processes. The modular structure of the REGARD 7000 makes it possible to adapt the system’s design 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 regarding overview and documentation can 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 comparing analogue and digitally transmitted measurement values mean that false alarms are prevented more effectively than ever before. Special signals (errors, warnings, etc.) 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 the 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 structured and tidied away before the main components are installed.
Maintenance and documentation — as efficient as possible
The REGARD 7000 can use HART communication, making it much more efficient to maintain your gas warning system. It allows you to access all connected HART-enabled transmitters from a central point remotely. This ensures better preparation of maintenance work concerning 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 access, for example, to test allocations. For example, the documentation frequently required by monitoring institutions can also be generated by the REGARD 7000. This documentation is made available without the need for additional tools.
