PITTSBURGH, May 14, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Industrial Scientific, the global leader in gas detection, is pleased to announce the expansion of its connected safety portfolio to include cellular and wi-fi capability in the Ventis® Pro5 Personal Gas Monitor and a satellite communication gateway to connect mobile workers in real time. For area gas monitoring, the Radius® BZ1 connects to the cloud via the RGX™ Gateway, which is certified for Class 1 Division 2 and ATEX Zone 2 hazardous zones around the globe.
Personal and area monitors pass real-time data to iNet® Now software allowing supervisors to see where workers are located and what hazards they are exposed to. The combination of real-time and historical data gives organizations the power to increase productivity, address risky behavior, and improve safety practices in a range of applications from mobile workers to in-plant monitoring and confined space entries.
The connected devices also improve team and site safety due to their unique ability to share alarms between monitors. Local alarm sharing allows for faster, more informed responses from nearby workers. Additionally, the local network feature enables monitoring within confined spaces where traditional wireless devices have limited connectivity.
"Our connected safety offerings focus on aligning people, devices, sensors, and data to help businesses achieve key outcomes: saving lives, saving time, and using resources more efficiently," said Justin McElhattan, President of Industrial Scientific.
