PITTSBURGH 02 Oct 2006 Industrial Scientific Corporation, a global leader in gas detection and monitoring instruments, systems and related services, has enhanced its full-featured, “dockable” GasBadge Pro single gas monitor with the introduction of a low hydrogen (H2) interference carbon monoxide (CO) sensor option. This option will provide an ideal personal monitor for applications where the presence of hydrogen in the atmosphere normally produces inaccurate readings and nuisance false alarms. The GasBadge Pro is designed to detect carbon monoxide in the range of 0-1,500 parts per million (PPM), and with a simple calibration to a common standard of carbon monoxide gas, will produce accurate readings, without false alarms, in atmospheres containing hydrogen concentrations in excess of 750 PPM.
Providing a lifetime of gas hazard protection with more features than any single gas monitor available, GasBadge Pro can be quickly adapted with interchangeable “smart” sensors to monitor unsafe levels of oxygen or any one of the following toxic gases: ammonia, carbon monoxide, chlorine, chlorine dioxide, hydrogen cyanide, hydrogen sulfide, nitrogen dioxide, phosphine and sulfur dioxide.
Each GasBadge Pro monitor carries a lifetime warranty and comes standard with STEL and TWA readings, datalogging of up to one year of survey data, and an event-logger that records the past 15 alarm events. The monitor is compatible with the award winning DS2 Docking Station and iNet Monitoring Service to further simplify and automate calibration, function (bump) testing and data management.
The large, LCD display includes a backlight for clear visibility in low-light conditions, and international graphic symbols for easy operation. The GasBadge Pro can be configured to display gas readings in percent by volume or in parts per million, and is capable of showing both gas type and direct gas readings, or just the gas type. The instrument’s four-button interface provides intuitive navigation and setup, which can be password-protected for added security.
