  • Connection of one or two adaptable EASYLAB control panels Type BE-SEG-03 or BE-SEG-02; suitable also for fume cupboards with sash windows on two sides
  • Operating mode default setting by an external unit or device using digital inputs
  • Monitoring functions: Monitoring value 1, monitoring value 2, deactivate monitoring function
  • Alarms and alarm signalling are configurable, e.g. suppressing alarms for certain operating modes

Variants

  • FMS-1: Monitoring system with integral diaphragm pressure transducer and measuring probe
  • FMS-2: Monitoring system for external signals of 0 (2) to 10 V DC, e.g. from a face velocity transducer, volume flow controller or external differential pressure transducer

Parts and characteristics

  • Power supply unit for supply voltage 90 - 240 V AC
  • 2 control panels can be connected, e.g. for fume cupboards with sash windows on two sides
  • Interactive EasyConnect software for configuration, commissioning and diagnosis of the monitoring system
  • Bluetooth module (BlueCON) that can be connected to the monitoring system, for wireless connection to the configuration computer

Attachments

Expansion modules are factory mounted or can be fitted at a later stage

  • S: EM-LIGHT-F – The monitoring system allows for switching a light on/off using the control panel. This expansion module is a wired socket for the connection of lighting. Maximum switch rating: 230 V AC 500 W.
  • G: EM-CPL – Mating connector for the EM-LIGHT module. If EM-LIGHT is installed, a mating connector can be supplied to allow for plugging in the lighting.
  • V: EM-VENT – Combined insulation piece and wire clamping bracket for digital output DO1, fan activation. The monitoring system can be used to activate or deactivate a fan. In case of 230 V AC power supply, this combined insulation piece and wire clamping bracket is provided.
  • D: EM-DDT – Differential pressure transducer for monitoring a supportive flow. This expansion module may be used as an additional differential pressure transducer to monitor a supportive flow fan.


Optional transducers for FMS-2

  • VS-TRD: Face velocity transducer
  • PT699: Differential pressure transducer, –100 to 100 Pa

Construction features

  • Electronic monitoring system with optional factory mounted expansion modules
  • Control electronics using a microprocessor, with configuration settings stored in EEPROM memory and hence safe in case of a power failure
  • Permanent function monitoring of the system and the connected sensors
  • Sockets for the most important connections are located on the outside of the casing
  • Connections for expansion modules
  • Differential pressure transducer with room air induction to protect the measurement point

Materials and surfaces

  • Casing in ABS plastic; RAL 5002

Functional description

For fume cupboard monitoring, the electronic EASYLAB monitoring system FMS is typically installed on the roof or on the side of the fume cupboard. The supplied control panel is typically mounted on the fume cupboard side frame.

 

Principal functions:

  • Fume cupboard monitoring by internal or external differential pressure measurement, including optical or acoustic signalling, to EN 14175
  • The monitoring system meets the requirements of EN 14175 and is hence suitable for all fume cupboards tested to EN 14175


Monitoring strategies:

 

FMS-1

  • Equipment function – differential pressure, internal measurement: Measurement of the differential pressure at a suitable measurement point using an internal static differential pressure transducer. 2 pressure values can be monitored
  • Equipment function – volume flow rate, internal measurement: Measurement of the volume flow rate at a suitable measurement point using an internal static differential pressure transducer. 2 volume flow rate values can be monitored


FMS-2

  • Equipment function – face velocity: Measurement of the face velocity using the optional face velocity transducer VS-TRD. The velocity can be set
  • Equipment function – differential pressure, external measurement: Measurement of the differential pressure at a suitable measurement point using an external differential pressure transducer. 2 pressure values can be monitored
  • Equipment function – volume flow rate, external measurement: Monitoring of the volume flow rate by measuring the volume flow rate or differential pressure at a suitable measurement point using an external differential pressure transducer or the actual value signal from a volume flow controller. 2 volume flow rate values can be monitored
