MGA Sample Conditioning System

MGA Sample Conditioning System

The Extrel MGA™ 1200CS Mass Spectrometer Gas Analyzer can now be equipped with either a 4- or 16- stream sample conditioning system that interfaces directly to the multi-stream sampler. 

  • Near real-time analysis
  • Analysis speed more or less real-time due to multiple collectors
  • Monitor Up to 16 components in a complex gas stream
  • Best available measurement precision for all gases
  • Single analyzer to calibrate and maintain
  • Reduces maintenance costs
  • Single link data highway (Modbus, OPC, Profibus, Hart)
  • Simplifies communication to host computer
  • Improved measurement precision for all components
  • Provides tighter process control

Designed with IIoT in Mind, Comes with Standard Cybersecure Communication Options 

Our Extrel MGA™ 1200CS Mass Spectrometer Gas Analyzer advances the state-of-the-art in process mass spectrometry with the first Cybersecure PLC enabled mass spectrometer.  This process mass spectrometer is a fixed magnetic sector analyzer that provides rapid, accurate and stable real-time analysis of up to 16 gas components in multiple gas streams. It’s the fastest process mass spec on the market.  With the ability to interface to process streams with capability of driving both rotary and solenoid manifolds, it delivers unmatched stability provides best-in industry drift specification and longest intervals for calibration.  Only one single analyzer to calibrate and maintain.

Designed with IIoT in mind, the control architecture is based on the Modicon M580 ePAC programmed with EcoStruxure Control Expert software. The Magelis touch-screen HMI provides full support for secure role-based access permissions and stored audit trails for end-to-end cybersecurity.


  • Improved reliability
  • Low cost of ownership 
  • Meet compliance requirements
  • Backed by global service and support

The hazardous area compliant HMI for the MGA 1200CS Mass Spectrometer Gas Analyzer provides full access to system configuration, real-time data, stored data, system status and diagnostics. The native ethernet control architecture provides industrial connectivity for SCADA, DCS, SIS and Data Historians.

  • Superior stability, sensitivity, resolution and ruggedness
  • Only one single analyzer to calibrate and maintain – reduces maintenance costs
  • Rapid analysis time – multiple components in 1 second
  • Rugged cybersecure communication options standard
  • Hazardous area compatible touchscreen HMI provides configuration and interrogation without opening the door or requiring a PC
  • Role-based access permission standard
  • Non scanning ultra-fast parallel processing of spectra
  • Non-scanning – simultaneous analysis from multiple Faraday detectors providing real-time analysis
  • Measures up to 16 components from mid-ppm to 100% for as many as 100 sampling sites
  • Optional validation assistance for 21 CFR Part 11 compliance
  • Continuous and instantaneous analysis
  • Analyze up to 128 streams, including both process and calibration gases, in user defined order
  • Standard communications: RS-232 Serial, Modbus® RTU & TCP/IP
