The MSA alphaCONTROL 2 / A2 software is part of the alpha Personal Network respiratory protection monitoring system, which consists of modular and wireless components. alphaCONTROL 2 / A2 facilitates an electronic, and optionally telemetric respiratory monitoring. The new software significantly improves entry control monitoring and is an adequate replacement for conventional tally boards. All the details of a classic monitoring system are integrated. Monitoring the air supply of the individual user as well as the measurements and alarms of portable gas measuring devices increases the security.
Complete monitoring alphaCONTROL 2 / A2 attaches great importance on the presentation of the situation-relevant information. The newly interpreted interaction concept allows the user to have the best possible understanding of the particular situations. The respiratory protective device user has an exact overview of the air supply situation of the emergency services - based on the information from alphaSCOUT and optionally ALTAIR 5X W-USB, multi-gas detector.
Reliable & versatile monitoring The type of presentation supports the user to operate with freely scalable team levels in each kind of respiratory protection use and still maintain the overview at all times. The application permanently assesses the information which is available and presents the respective critical value of a team in real time. The officer-in-charge even has direct access to the individual pressure levels of all team members. Central monitoring – decentralised managed alphaCONTROL 2 / A2 supports Windows XP/7/8/8.1. In the network, alphaCONTROL 2 / A2 uses existing structures to share the hardware interfaces, therefore, e.g., it is possible to connect several systems together and guarantee a central monitoring of all device wearers and to fulfil the individual escalation levels.
