    Sound level meter

    The Sound Detector SD-200 is a compact, lightweight sound level meter with LED indicators that flash green, yellow or red when preset thresholds have been reached. A five-button design makes it easy for users to determine the level of hearing protection required. The rechargeable lithium polymer battery helps lower the cost of ownership.


    Dangerous-gas detector

    This carbon monoxide and explosive gas detector is warranted for five years of use. It has no moving parts and no chemicals to deplete, which results in a very stable, highly accurate sensor. When switched on, the monitor automatically does a self-check and adds heat, if necessary, to keep the sensor in a standard range of temperature and humidity.

    Multi-gas detector

    The GasAlertQuattro multi-gas detector combines a comprehensive range of features with simple one-button operation. IntelliFlash provides continuous visual confirmation of detector operation and compliance. The blinking LED light simplifies compliance by providing at-a-glance assurance that sensors are fit for use in the field. The detector is suited for a wide range of industrial applications, including confined space entry.

     Air-sampling pump

    Tuff series air pumps are built to withstand the harshest environments. The Tuff Standard is great for basic abatement monitoring with a set flow rate using an external calibrator and start/stop mode of operation. Tuff Plus adds to this by including an onboard flow rate selection, sampled volume display and a fixed duration run time. The Tuff Pro has two separate automatic timed start/stop routines.

    Wall-mounted gas analyzer

    The CEA 288 is a wall-mounted infrared carbon dioxide gas analyzer with a digital display readout contained in a water- and dust-tight enclosure. Ranges are available as low as 0-10,000 ppm. The unit includes user adjustable audio/visual alarms with contact relay and is applicable for indoor air monitoring, food-related industries and other applications where carbon dioxide needs to be monitored.

    CEA Instruments Inc.

    Multi-gas detector

    The Ventis MX4 multi-gas detector can sense up to four gases, including oxygen, combustible gases (LEL or CH4) and any two of the following toxic gases: CO, H2S, NO2 and SO2. Ideal for confined space monitoring or continuous personal monitoring in potentially hazardous environments, the detector alerts users of dangerous conditions through an audible alarm, ultra-bright LED visual alarms and a powerful vibrating alarm.

    Industrial Scientific Corp.

    Gas detector

    The TA-2100 Gas Detector uses sensor technology to provide users with continuous diagnostics, backlit LCD, and self-calibration that adjusts to span monthly based on sensor life curve – reducing calibration frequency and cost. The detector is applicable for use in chemical plants, oil and gas industries, and the food and beverage sector, among others.

    Mil-Ram Technology Inc.

     Touch-screen gas monitor

    The GenII OI-7032 32-Channel is a touch-screen gas monitor that supports up to 32 sensor assemblies. It receives transmissions from both wired and wire-free sensor assemblies and is customizable with up to two radios: 900 MHz, 900 MHz (legacy) or 2.4 GHz (for international use). The monitor is compatible with catalytic bead, infrared, PID and electrochemical sensors.

    Otis Instruments Inc.

    Toxic and combustible gas detector  

    The Freedom 6000 universal transmitter for detecting toxic and combustible gases incorporates modularity, common components and a common user interface into a fixed gas detection system. The transmitter is available with toxic sensors, which provide low zero drift, faster response and recovery time, and greater specificity to target gases.
