Title: Cylinder cabinet

Abstract: The present invention provides a means for preventing, in a cylinder cabinet, the improper securing of a gas container due to human error or the like. The cylinder cabinet comprises a securing means for securing a gas container therein, a control means for managing and controlling a series of steps for carrying out a gas container-exchange operation, and a detection means for detecting whether the gas container is properly secured. When the detection means detects that the new container is improperly secured, the control means places the gas container-exchange operation on stand-by until the container is properly secured.
