PITTSBURGH, PA – Industrial Scientific is pleased to introduce an easier and more cost effective method of calibrating and bump testing the GasBadge Plus Monitor. The new Cal Plus(tm) Calibration Station features simple, two-button operation for quickly and easily calibrating or function (bump) testing the instrument. The large LCD display and LED indicators then show whether or not the instrument passed or failed the desired function.

A PC is not required to operate this stand-alone calibration system, making the unit extremely portable and flexible. The unit can be used in remote areas with the optional battery powered kit, or mounted to a wall along with an optional calibration gas cylinder holder. When used with a PC, Cal Plus software generates calibration and bump test reports that are automatically downloaded via a standard USB connection. The unit also downloads alarm events and instrument details to the PC, allowing the user to quickly and easily configure instrument preferences.

Available in two single unit versions, the Cal Plus can be ordered with or without a built-in dot-matrix printer that automatically prints calibration and bump test reports. The reports provide permanent documentation of instrument serial numbers, pass/fail indications, bump test readings and full span readings for the GasBadge Plus.

The first of Industrial Scientific’s next-generation single gas monitors, the GasBadge Plus provides low-cost, personal protection from dangerous levels of carbon monoxide, hydrogen sulfide, oxygen, nitrogen dioxide or sulfur dioxide. With a number of high-end features not found in other similarly priced instruments, the two-year, maintenance-free monitor features a top-mounted sensor, a rugged and water resistant enclosure, a large LCD display, readings in percent by volume or parts per million, and user adjustable alarm and calibration gas setpoints.

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.
