The new generation Truma MonoControl CS is a gas pressure regulator with integrated crash sensor, which is suitable for a single gas cylinder. The sensor ensures that you can also heat your caravan or motor home safely while you’re on the road. Should you be involved in an accident with a collision speed of about 15 to 20 km/h against a solid object, the crash sensor stops the gas flow immediately. If the gas system is damaged, no gas can escape. The MonoControl CS gas pressure regulator is also ideal for stationary operation at campsites.
If the crash sensor has been triggered, it can be easily reset. Simply press the yellow reset button on the MonoControl CS gas pressure regulator and the gas pressure regulator is ready to use again. The regulator output is 1.5 kg/h, which is suitable for maximum consumption. You don’t have to calculate appliance consumption or the flow rate of the gas system.
What do I have to consider if I want to use my gas-operated appliances while driving?
With motor homes as of construction year 01/2007, in accordance with the heating equipment directive 2001/56/EC with annexes 2004/78/EC and 2006/119/EC for the operation of a liquid gas heater while driving, a safety shut-off device must be provided that prevents gas from inadvertently escaping if a line breaks in the event of an accident.
In combination with high-pressure gas hoses with integrated hose rupture protection (HRP), the Truma MonoControl CS and DuoControl CS gas pressure regulators (with integrated crash sensor) comply with all of the relevant standards, regulations and directives and therefore allow the gas system to be used throughout Europe, also while driving. We recommend that you use a safety device also in caravans for heating while driving.
For vehicles manufactured before 01/2007 there are no restrictions for operating the gas system while driving. This does not apply in France where operation of a gas system while driving is only permitted in type-tested vehicles with initial registration from 1/1/2007. In older vehicles, operation of a gas system while driving is not permitted, even in combination with a safety shut-off device.
How often must the gas system of a caravan or motor home be checked?
In Germany, the gas system must be inspected every two years by an LPG expert (DVFG, TÜV, DEKRA). This is documented with an inspection certificate (G 607) and an inspection plate.
