PITTSBURGH, PA, USA — Industrial Scientific Corporation, a global leader in gas detection and monitoring instruments, systems and related services, is pleased to launch a new DS2 Docking Station for the GasBadge Plus single gas monitor.

The GasBadge Plus is a two-year, low-cost, personal gas detector providing protection from dangerous levels of carbon monoxide, hydrogen sulfide, oxygen, nitrogen dioxide or sulfur dioxide.

All GasBadge Plus instruments currently in use are compatible with the new Docking Station and iNet, our fully automated maintenance and management solution.

The DS2 Docking Station is a valuable tool for any gas detection program. It recognizes individual instrument serial numbers and performs calibration and bump testing according to specific schedules set by the user.

Instrument diagnostics and record keeping functions also limit safety hazards and liability concerns for additional peace of mind. Two-way wireless and/or Ethernet connectivity allows DS2s to communicate from remote locations to a central database.

The DS2 can support all customer applications from a simple laptop PC running one to eight DS2s, to complete WAN networks supporting up to 100 DS2s in multiple locations around the world.

The DS2 features a multilingual display, three status LEDs and an audible alarm providing important status information and instrument details. The DS2 also offers optional iGas capability to automatically identify calibration gas cylinder concentrations, lot numbers and expiration dates to keep the system operating effectively and continually.
