Pagination or Media Count:
A chemical monitor interface is generally comprised of three identical circuit boards each linked together through fiber optics. One of the circuit boards is electrically connected to a Chemical Agent Monitor CAM, an off-the-shelf product, while another circuit board relays control information to the first connected to the CAM. A third circuit board relays only visual status to an observer by using a plasma display, while the first two boards can also control the CAM as well as display status. The interface allows the CAM to run without human intervention, thus allowing the U.S. Naval Fleet, and other U.S. military field units, to meet a need for remotely detecting life-threatening chemical attacks without harm to personnel. The chemical detector is able to purge itself of chemical agents and is immune to shock, vibration and radiations such as EMI.
