Bacharach introduces VRF leak detection solution
Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, 21 July 2019: Bacharach, which provides HVAC-R gas instrumentation and monitoring solutions, on July 18 introduced the new MVR-SC controller, which the company said through a Press release is designed to seamlessly pair with MVR-300 refrigerant monitors to provide real-time status of refrigerant leaks throughout a facility.
According to the release, the MVR-SC include has a centralized alarming feature for MVR-300 VRF leak detectors. Its other features include network set-up and MVR-300 Modbus ID assignment, system monitoring and seamless integration with MVR-300.
The MVR-SC, the release said, eliminates the need to integrate VRF leak detection into a BAS controller and the related custom programming expense. By implementing a hybrid Ethernet serial network, the MVR-SC simplifies the Modbus integration, provides fast response for fault detection and troubleshooting and is quickly deployed in any size facility.
The MVR-SC, the release said, monitors up to 100 MVR-300 devices and has an integrated audible alarm. The MVR-SC has an intuitive user interface built on a color, touchscreen display, the release added.
VRF systems, the release said, are being increasingly deployed in multi-tenant buildings, such as hotel, dormitories, assisted-living facilities and offices. The Bacharach VRF leak detection system, the release said, which includes the MVR-300 and MVR-SC, improves occupant safety in the case of a VRF system leak.
