10078254 Galaxy Automated Test System - Altair, Standard System + Cylinder Holder by MSA
The Galaxy Automated Test System is a user friendly test system designed with durability and reliability in mind. The high quality polycarbonate plastic encases the test system to ensure the unit will withstand environmental hazards. The Galaxy test system is a time tested unit developed with the highest safety and reliability standards. It is highly compatible with other MSA products and gas detection devices. The unitís advanced functioning technology and optional cost efficient accessories also ensure that they device is highly customizable to individual needs.
User friendly testing
To test a device, users need only to place a device in the unit test stand and close the door. The door will ensure proper gas flow, secures the testing unit into place, and offers dust protection during testing. The Galaxy Automated Test System will automatically begin performing the test. When the unit has finished testing, a bright LED light will provide an instantly recognizable indication of pass or failure. As an added benefit, some MSA devices can even be recharged using the testing system. The Galaxy Automated Test System is compatible with several MSA gas detection products including Solaris, Orion, Sirius, and Altair multigas detectors.
The unitís high functionality ensures that the test system can perform as a standalone device or connected to a computer network. The system also has key features designed to keep the workspace organized. The patent pending gas cylinder holder offers a sturdy base for gas cylinders, and the DIN rail allows for a steady wall mount.
Users can also purchase optional features for the Galaxy Automated Test System. In some situations, a power source may not be available. For this reason, an optional battery pack is available that uses replaceable AA alkaline batteries. These batteries can provide up to 100 calibrations for each instrument test stand. Users needing a calibration or data log may want to utilize the optional printer. Users may also want to print a data log to place with the space entry permit. An optional industry-standard memory card is also available which can retain over 1000 test records.
The Galaxy Automated Test System is also compatible with an optional network interface. The easy to use interface is great for record retention and retrieval, instrument inventory, adjusting calibration settings, calibration notifications, and managing software. The network interface stores a variety of records including calibration results, calibration due dates, and specific instrument information. A complete list of inventory can be printed and the report can display due dates for all devices along with any pertinent notifications. The Galaxy System network interface also allows users to opt into email notifications. These notifications alert recipients of calibration due dates and test results. Finally, the network interface allows for a network manager. The network manager performs all of the standard functions, but also combines all of the data from the entire network.
