Gas Detector Scores CSA Approval

Oldham, a company within the 3M Personal Safety Division, announces that its MX 32 gas detection controller has been certified by Canadian Standards Association (CSA) and now carries the CSA mark of approval. The component has been certified for use in Ordinary Locations according to CSA standards C22.2 No. 0-10, 61010-12 and UL 61010-1.


Designed to receive and supervise up to eight inputs via Wheatstone bridge mVdc sensors, 4 mA to 20 mA dc or Serial RS-485 Modbus, the MX 32 continuously monitors multiple gas detection sensors. It can be customized and expanded based on individual application needs using Oldham’s stackable din-rail mounted I/O modules. The modules can be installed remotely to simplify field wiring and reduce costs. All modules are also covered by the CSA certification.
