Bacharach is offering the MVR-300 to provide continuous refrigerant detection within occupied spaces. Typical applications include monitoring for potential leaks from high-volume HVACR systems in hotels, apartments, dormitories, hospitals, assisted living facilities, and office buildings. The MVR-300 is ideal for integration with VRF/VRV systems.

The monitor aims to ensure the safety of occupants, in addition to enhancing the effectiveness and energy efficiency of the HVAC system, minimizing potential environmental impact from leaking gases and helping to comply with regulations such as EN378:2016 and ASHRAE 15:2013. The MVR-300 identities affected rooms and enables the HVAC system to isolate the leak, so that other rooms remain unaffected while the risks of a refrigerant leak are mitigated.

The MVR-300 is installed in a standard 2-gang electrical back box so it sits flush to the wall. Its low-profile, neutral design blends into typical room décor. A range of communications options allow for alarms to be centralized into a building management system or other control system.
