Remote alarm boxes can be useful in a variety of scenarios
where there is a need for continuous monitoring and early detection of issues
with a chiller. Such scenarios include:
operations where downtime can have serious consequences, a remote alarm box can
help to ensure continuous operation by providing early warning of potential
issues that could lead to system failure.
locations where equipment is located in remote or inaccessible areas, a remote
alarm box can provide real-time monitoring and alerts, allowing personnel to
respond quickly to issues.
systems that are complex or have multiple components, a remote alarm box can
help to identify issues that may be difficult to detect manually.
A remote alarm box works in conjunction with sensors that
are installed within the chiller system. These sensors are able to detect
various parameters, such as temperature and flow rate, that affect the
performance and operation of the chiller.
The alarm box is connected to these sensors, either directly
or through a control system, and is programmed to monitor specific parameters
and trigger alerts if they fall outside of predetermined thresholds. When an
alert is triggered, a lamp will illuminate, and an audible siren will sound,
indicating that there is an issue that requires attention. The alarm box also
features an emergency stop switch that will turn off the chiller should this be
There are several benefits of using a remote alarm box in
conjunction with process cooling equipment, including:
The compact remote alarm supplied by Applied Thermal Control
is sited close to the application, allowing personnel to monitor the chiller,
without needing to see the chiller. The display indicates normal operation, or
shows alarms for temperature and fluid (both flow and level). An audible siren
also sounds in an alarm condition. The alarm box can be mounted up to 15 metres
away from the chiller and is fitted with an emergency stop switch that will
turn off the chiller should it be necessary.
