TunnelTech - Model 202 - CO, Visibility Monitor
The TunnelTech 202 Air Quality Monitor, is an essential part of any road or rail tunnel safety system. Firstly, it monitors the atmosphere within the tunnel and ensures that the tunnel ventilation system provides sufficient clean air to protect tunnel users health and for drivers to clearly see the road ahead. The TunnelTech 202 analyser uses well proven infra-red techniques to determine CO concentration and optical attenuation to monitor Visibility levels.
As there is only one moving part, reliability levels are very high and maintenance requirements are extremely low. The sight tubes have been designed to ensure that airborne dust and contaminants do not reach the optical windows and cause drift.
Fully configurable analogue and alarm outputs are exportable to the tunnel data acquisition system to provide real-time CO and Visibility data. This data may also be exported via the optional RS485 serial port which delivers MODBUS RTU encoded data to a SCADA system located in the tunnel control centre and/or a local display module. In addition, IP65 rated enclosures are constructed to resist attack from aggressive gases and road salt and the effects of heat.
In areas where extremely low temperatures may be experienced, optional transmitter and receiver insulation jackets are available to reduce the effect.
There are three versions of the TunnelTech AQM available;
- TunnelTech 201 CO, NO and Visibility monitor
- TunnelTech 202 CO and Visibility monitor
- TunnelTech 203 CO and NO monitor
- TunnelTech 204 Visibility monitor
CODEL’s tunnel sensor range is further extended by additional sensors for the measurement of NO2 and tunnel airflow.
