November 21, 2014 – Detector Electronics announces an Ethernet/Modbus TCP/IP interface board option on the Eagle Quantum Premier (EQP) fire- and gas-safety controller, allowing the controller to communicate with other devices on the Ethernet Local Area Network. The EQP controller is a flexible, distributed intelligence safety system that provides flame and gas detection, alarm signaling, fault notification and extinguishing agent release control. It integrates component communications on a reliable, fault-tolerant, digital network. Unlike many other fire and gas controllers, the EQP controller is rated for installation in hazardous Class 1/Division 2 and Class 1/Zone 2 locations. The Ethernet interface board option expands the communication capability of the EQP controller, which has long supported ControlNet, RS-232 Modbus RTU and RS-485 Modbus RTU protocols.
