PROTECTOR6-RF Wireless System Controller

Six-Channel Wireless System Controller with Optional WirelessHART Interface
    • Monitors and alarms on up to six wireless monitors, switch state transmitters or analog signal transmitters
    • Optional WirelessHART module with dedicated antenna
    • Three user-programmable 4A alarm relays with replaceable fuses
    • 128×64 graphic display screen
    • 900 MHz or 2.4 GHz radios
    • Wet-contact fault alarm relay
    • RS-485 serial output


The GDS Corp Protector6-RF Wireless System Controller is designed to monitor and alarm on 900 MHz or 2.4 GHz wireless signals from up to six GDS Corp GASMAX MX or GASMAX CS wireless gas monitors, GASMAX GX wired gas monitors (when equipped with optional radio module), GDS-58X signal transmitters or GDS-59X switch state transmitters.

The Protector6-RF is an ideal solution for small or medium-sized gas detection systems or as a wireless interface for distributed systems that include both wired and wireless monitors. An optional strobe or horn sounder can be installed for real-time local warning indications. The small size allows multiple Protector6-RF units to be installed in the immediate vicinity of monitored areas, giving technicians information on any toxic gas that may be present.

The Protector6-RF controller includes an RS-485 serial MODBUS output that can allow remote PLCs or DCSs to monitor the selected input channels in real time. An optional WirelessHART module is available that utilizes the MODBUS interface to provide HART connectivity
