Many industrial facilities work 24/7/365. The FieldServer FGFD ProtoAir Gateway gives you the flexibility to stay connected to your fixed gas and flame detectors when you’re away from the facility or to keep watch on unmanned facilities.

Work Smarter. Stay Connected.

The FGFD ProtoAir wireless gateway is an external, high-performance, low-cost building automation and industrial control IIoT gateway that provides connectivity into the cloud and instant multi-protocol deployment of field protocols, enabling new or legacy devices to easily interface with other protocols.

Pre-Programmed for Easy Setup

Every ProtoAir FGFD Gateway is pre-configured with MSA Safety’s FGFD products before delivery to seamlessly enable Cloud communications to one or many MSA products including:

Not only can it be used with MSA’s FGFD field devices, but it can also be expanded to include other process equipment that have 4-20 mA, Modbus or BACnet connectivity.

When housed in a NEMA 4 enclosure, the FGFD ProtoAir can be used for hazardous gas applications and comes with a built-in cellular antenna and all the relevant safety precautions for such an application.
