Blackline Safety launches G6 at National Safety Congress & Expo
Blackline Safety Corp. a global provider of connected safety technology, has launched a new connected wearable for single-gas detection. The all-new G6 personal gas detector – unveiled today at the National Safety Council (NSC) Safety Congress & Expo in San Diego – offers fast incident response time and a more efficient way to manage safety and compliance.
“What makes G6 truly unique is its long-lasting connectivity,” the company said in a press release. “This means industrial organizations can fully harness real-time vital safety data for the first time in scenarios where disposable, traditional beep-and-flash detectors are commonly used.”
A fully connected and intuitive solution that leverages the latest in Internet of Things (IoT) cellular connectivity, G6 delivers expanded benefits such as longer battery life, lower cost of ownership and fewer false alarms, it said. More importantly, it gives safety professionals access to the trusted data they need to manage their safety protocols, processes, and ongoing compliance more effectively and efficiently, the company said.
“With this new technology, we’re bringing unprecedented levels of connectivity to industrial workplaces, helping to reduce the risk of injury, boost productivity and bring proactive safety management to a new level,” said Cody Slater, CEO and chair, Blackline Safety. “We’re responding to a direct need in the market, giving safety managers higher performing technology to access reliable, actionable data at their fingertips.”
Built-in capabilities of G6 include:
•Proven direct-to-cloud cellular connectivity that works straight out of the box.
•Complete safety management through the Blackline Live software portal, with the ability to view an entire fleet of devices from a single screen and deliver automatic, over-the-air firmware and configuration updates.
•Improved incident response time supported by real-time notifications and GPS mapping to quickly locate workers and devices and understand what’s happening on the ground as incidents unfold.
Gas detection and analytics
•Sensor options to quickly alert workers to exposure of toxic gases, including hydrogen sulfide (H2S), carbon monoxide (CO), oxygen (O2) and sulfur dioxide (SO2).
•Higher precision short-term exposure limit (STEL) monitoring.
•More accurate data that reduces false alarms and drives powerful reporting and analytics to get ahead of safety risks.
Long-lasting device life
•Long-life rechargeable battery that lasts up to one year.
•Ability to quickly locate devices when lost or stolen.
•Device life of up to four years.
