Enabling ventilation monitoring to provide real-time data means and safer conditions

The Vigilante AQS™ and the Zephyr AQS™ are both used to monitor the environmental conditions underground.

The Vigilante AQS™ Air Quality Station provides the ultimate system with up to eight different real-time sensors, advanced diagnostics and control functions. The Zephyr AQS™ Air Quality Station is a lower cost system that uses the same reliable sensors and advanced diagnostics but with only three different real-time sensors on-board.  It was determined that the Zephyr AQS™ will handle approximately 75% of our current applications at a lower cost. Both systems plug directly into a network switch thereby eliminating the requirement of expensive and complex PLCs (programmable logic controllers).  By doing so, this eliminates upwards to 50-80% of the CAPEX requirements.

Maestro continues to develop products that are fully open and agnostic using industry standard communication protocols like Modbus TCP/IP and EtherNet/IP.
