Beacon 200

Controllers in the Beacon Series come in single- or multi-channel options, with sensors being mounted either directly to the controller or wired remotely. All of the Beacon Series controllers are compatible with RKI LEL, O2, and CO sensors, with some Beacon controllers capable of integrating sensors for other toxic and non-toxic gasses.
Each Beacon controller has an audible built-in alarm and is in a weatherproof enclosure.
