Manufacturing gas detection systems for over 25 years, Kimessa understands customers gas detection needs and have recently launched a new CO2 monitoring solution that will be also added to the product data base.

“We have addressed key criteria for CO2 applications in industry today, such as selectable ranges, on-site selectable outputs as standard including 4-20mA, 0-20mA, 0-10V and BUS, unique optical infra red proprietary technology, fit for purpose low temperature operation and robust build in a metallic enclosure,” says Michael Baumann, sales manager at Kimessa.

“We believe the option to use the KSIM 1090 CO2 detector directly integrated into a BMS or as an addressable BUS solution with our CANline monitor provides cost saving flexibility to our clients,” he adds.

Product details

KIMESSA’s CO2 BUS-compatible gas monitoring equipment includes the
CO2-detector KSIM 1090, the CANline gas monitor for up to 32 different refrigeration gas leak detectors and the CWE 67, BUS-compatible audio visual alarm:

CO2-detector KSIM 1090

Basic specifications:
  • Optional measuring ranges: from 5000ppm to 5.0% volume
  • Operating temperature: -30 to +70ºC
  • User selectable outputs: 0-20mA, 4-20mA, 0-10V and digital CAN-BUS
  • Long life reliable infra red sensor technology
  • Temperature compensation and linearised output
  • One person annual calibration
  • Designed for use with hand held optical calibration tool – CRC
  • Robust metallic enclosure
  • Can be used in conjunction with remote displays for local real time visual data
CANline gas monitor

Basic specifications:
  • Low installation costs with BUS wiring of detectors and Kimessa BUS audio visual alarm
  • 32 digital sensor inputs (sensors type KSxC)
  • digital display indicates the gas concentration in ppm or % LEL
  • 4 gas alarm thresholds indicated on the digital display
  • 8 potential free relays contacts 2A 230 VAC
  • max.6 CANline-Relay Cards with 4 programmable free relay outputs per card
CWE 67 audio visual alarm:

Basic specifications:
  • Simplify installation of audio visual alarms by mounting the CWE on the detector BUS cable
  • 24 VDC-output for a lamp/flash light and a 24 VDC output for an alarm horn
  • Can be allocated to individual or detector groups by alarm threshold
  • Individual programming options for both the sounder and flashing light such as time delays (ON and OFF), ideal where a sounder is located in a public area.
  • CWE incorporates a programmable relay to drive local electrical devices such as a slam shut valve, ventilation, refrigerant drawdown, etc.

Established in 1985, KIMESSA can build on many years of experience in the design and manufacture of electronic fixed gas detection solutions. The company's main goal is to design and manufacture high quality innovative gas monitoring solutions especially for the refrigeration market.
