    ​Worker safety monitoring device

    The Loner IS is the first dedicated remote monitoring safety device that is Class I, Division 1 intrinsically safe. Featuring micro-electro-mechanical sensors, Loner IS delivers the world’s first True Fall Detection technology within a remote worker safety monitoring solution. Internal accelerometers and gyroscopes not only detect falls, but also trigger a safety alert in a man-down situation where a worker is motionless.

    ​Sound-level meter

    The Sound Examiner SE-400 Series of sound-level meters computes the average sound pressure level over the run time of the device, helping workers more accurately assess noise levels. The SE-400 Series features variable, user-selectable data-logging intervals; a backlit LCD; and a multi-lingual user interface. It is available with kits in Type/Class 1 and 2 microphones with and without calibrators.


    ​Gas detection training system

    The GasTrainer System provides hands-on experience with a four-gas detector without the dangers of an actual hazard. Designed to simulate readings from the four most common sensors – oxygen, hydrogen sulfide or carbon monoxide and LEL – the GasTrainer System can be used in work areas where hazardous materials dangers may exist, such as chemical storage facilities or near HVAC equipment.

    ​Multi-gas monitor

    The Protégé multi-gas monitor is easy to use. An intuitive user interface and simple two-button operation make calibration and basic operation virtually thought-free. At 7.5 ounces and with a unique hourglass shape, the Protégé multi-gas monitor fits in the palm of your hand. The bright LCD and wide-angle alarm bars are clearly visible from all positions.

    ​Gas detector

    The Ventis LS multi-gas detector has the ability to detect up to four gases, including hydrogen sulfide, oxygen, LEL, carbon monoxide, sulfur dioxide and nitrogen dioxide. In potentially hazardous conditions, the instrument alerts users through audible, visual and vibrating alarms. The gas detection information is then sent to a control room, where an operator can interpret the data.

    ​Gas detection control panel

    The WX64 gas detection control panel can accommodate nearly any combination of 4-20 mA, bridge sensor, ModBus RTU, ModBus TCP and wireless inputs, making it suitable for even the most complex applications. In addition, the WX64 offers a color display, data logging via 2 GB SD Card, zoning and programmable relays.

    ​Hazardous gas monitor

    At a glance, the Sensepoint XCD hazardous gas monitor conveys the safety status of your site through its tri-color traffic-light display. It monitors toxic, oxygen and combustible gases; is easy to install; and works out of the box. Features include remote-sensor mounting, configurable sensors, simple calibration and easy operation.

    ​Multi-gas detector

    The ALTAIR 5X Multigas Detector simultaneously detects up to six gases. An instrument end-of-sensor-life warning reduces downtime and sensor inventory, MotionAlert signals “man down,” and InstantAlert allows users to manually activate alarms. Glow-in-the-dark housing makes it easy to see in a confined space. Offering easy bump tests, calibration and maintenance, and with a rugged housing, this detector is built for durability.
