Health & Safety

PITTSBURGH, PA Industrial Scientific, the innovative leader in gas detection and monitoring equipment, enhanced its next-generation line of single gas monitors today with the introduction of the full-featured, “dockable” GasBadge Pro. 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: carbon monoxide, hydrogen sulfide, nitrogen dioxide, sulfur dioxide, chlorine, chlorine dioxide, phosphine and ammonia.

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 customizable for any industry or application, featuring user adjustable alarm and calibration gas setpoints, as well as a user-configurable alert that signals when the instrument is due or overdue for calibration.

Housed in a rugged enclosure, the monitor is immune to RF, water resistant and extremely durable. A protective concussion-proof overmold protects the unit from extreme abuse in a variety of harsh industrial environments. At 3 ounces (85 grams), the instrument’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 large, LCD display includes a backlight for clear display 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.

Designed to provide protection for a minimum of 2,600 continuous hours with a replaceable CR2 Lithium battery, the GasBadge Pro will alert the user with a powerful audible alarm complemented by vibrating and visual alarms when gas concentrations exceed the preset limits. The standard confidence indicator, automatic self test and user-activated test provide an extra measure of assurance that the GasBadge Pro is always ready to protect from atmospheric hazards.

GasBadge Pro is also compatible with accessories like the DS2 Docking Station, Datalink and infrared printer to further simplify and automate calibration, function (bump) testing and data management.
