Health & Safety

PITTSBURGH Industrial Scientific’s GasBadge Plus is an economical single gas monitor ideally suited for short-term personal gas monitoring needs and special projects such as plant turnarounds or shutdowns. Plantwide outages for planned maintenance involve a number of scenarios where work is performed in temporary enclosures and other potentially hazardous atmospheres not intended to be accessed during normal plant operation. The GasBadge Plus provides low-cost, personal protection from dangerous levels of carbon monoxide, hydrogen sulfide, oxygen, nitrogen dioxide or sulfur dioxide.

At 2.5 ounces (72 grams), the two-year, maintenance-free monitor’s compact size and light weight allow it to be worn comfortably with a variety of clip attachments. With the top-mounted sensor, the unit can also provide continuous and unobstructed protection even when placed in a shirt pocket.

The GasBadge Plus is housed in a rugged enclosure that is extremely durable and resistant to water and radio frequency interference. A concussion-proof overmold protects the unit from extreme abuse that is common during shutdown operations. Each GasBadge Plus monitor carries a two-year warranty and includes a standard event-logger that records the past 15 alarm events.

The large, LCD display includes a backlight for clear visibility in low-light conditions. With user adjustable alarm and calibration gas setpoints, the monitor can be customized to any industry or application. When gas concentrations exceed the preset limits, GasBadge Plus alerts the user with a powerful audible alarm complemented by vibrating and visual alarms. The standard confidence indicator, automatic self test and user-activated test provide an extra measure of assurance that the GasBadge Plus is always ready to protect from atmospheric hazards.

Industrial Scientific Corporation is a leading designer, manufacturer and marketer of gas monitoring instruments, systems and other technical products for the preservation of life and property. The company has headquarters in Oakdale, Pa. and regional offices throughout the world.
