The RAS-series remote annunciators add audible and visible high-level alarms to OMNTEC’s automatic tank-gauging system. The RAS-series interfaces only with OMNTEC’s OEL8000II and OEL8000IIIK/X.
The primary application of OMNTEC remote annunciators is as a cautionary audio-visual alarm to signal a filling operator that a tank is approaching an overfill condition. A major benefit of all OMNTEC remote annunciators is that they need no external power source. This feature ensures cost-effective and time-saving installations.
RAS-series visual annunciators are LED indicators rated MTBF 11 years. The annunciators’ audible alarm is a low-voltage, 95-decibel piezoelectric alarm. The RAS-series allows a filling operator to acknowledge the alarm condition with a switch on the remote annunciator. It is user-programmable for high-level, caution and time-out parameters. The RAS-NYS offers a remote-annunciator option for conditions when distance or background noise requires a high-intensity, high-decibel remote annunciator. The visual indicator of the RAS-NYS is a flashing strobe beacon. The audible alarm is a 110-decibel piezoelectric horn.
OMNTEC remote annunciators have a NEMA-4X rating, which indicates a weather-proof, corrosion-resistant product. Ruggedly constructed, these remote annunciators provide reliable and cost-effective performance.
The RAS Series remote annunciator's ability to be tested remotely is as easy as pressing a button on the RAS remote without having to return to the OEL8000II/OEL8000III console.
Testing is achieved by pressing the silence button on the RAS remote. If the horn sounds and the light(s) flash your RAS is in good working order. *Available on firmware version 4.50 and higher.
