Health & Safety

PITTSBURGH, PA With the new MCal Calibration Station, calibrating, bump testing and charging the M40 Multi-Gas Monitor has never been easier or more cost-effective. Available in two single-unit versions, the MCal will accommodate all M40 monitors with software version 4.0 or
higher in a diffusion mode or with an SP40 sampling pump attached. The MCal features simple, two-button operation allowing the user to quickly and easily calibrate or bump test the instrument, and the LED indicators display whether or not the instrument passed or failed the desired function.

A PC is not required to operate this stand-alone system, making the unit extremely portable and flexible. Available accessories include an optional battery powered kit that enables the system to be used in remote areas, and a serial data printer that automatically prints calibration and bump test reports. The reports can be used for confined space entry permits with information pertaining to instrument serial
numbers, pass/fail indications, bump test readings and full span readings for each sensor installed in the M40 monitor.

The M40 is a reliable, low cost alternative for monitoring any
configuration of one to four gases, including carbon monoxide, hydrogen sulfide, oxygen and combustible gases found in a wide variety of industries including fire service, oil and gas, construction, petrochemical, and any confined space application. Weighing just 8.6 ounces (243 g), the small, ergonomically designed monitor has a large custom LCD display for continuous display of real-time gas readings, and international graphic symbols for user setup and operation.

M40 standard features include a continuous loop datalogger, peak/hold functions, STEL and TWA readings, and rechargeable lithium-ion battery for up to 18 hours of continuous runtime. When gas concentrations exceed
preset limits, the M40 monitor alerts the user with the bright visual and 90-dB alarms, and activates the internal vibrating alarm for high-noise environments. Each M40 monitor comes equipped with a charger, nylon carrying case, cell-phone belt clip and calibration cup with tubing. All M40 monitors carry a two-year all-inclusive warranty.
