Alarm Management System
Dräger's Alarm Management System is a surveillance system that provides personnel with clear and precise information on all aspects of your medical gas supply system.
The system consists of a number of independent components that communicate with one another via data line. Each component has a special function and can independently process the required messages from the system.
Area Control Units
The area control units monitor the gas supply in the individual areas of the hospital. A special alarm system interface collects the data from the pressure monitor and the optional gas consumption reader and provides this data to the Alarm Management System. If the gas pressure should become too low or too high, additional signals can carry the alarm message to Monitor 6G at the nurse's station or forward the alarm and measurement values to a Building Management System.
A GMS gateway is used to transmit all signals and readings from the Alarm Management System to a Building Management System. The gateway translates the signals from the Alarm Management System into standard LONWorks® signals that conventional control systems can directly process. This allows all the functions of the control system to be utilized for transmitting alarms and analyses, such as alarm notifications by phone or email, alarm lists, or trend analyses. The relay module Monitor R is also available for transmitting multimessaging signals via potential-free contacts to external alarm systems. In this module, up to 200 messages can be configured on each of the eight relay outputs for transmission, regardless of the data transmission protocol.
