GasBadge Pro single gas monitor from Industrial Scientific Corp. now includes a low hydrogen interference carbon monoxide sensor option.

Pittsburgh, PAGasBadge Pro single gas monitor from Industrial Scientific Corp. now features a low hydrogen (H2) interference carbon monoxide (CO) sensor option. Enhancement makes the personal monitor suitable for applications where the presence of hydrogen in the atmosphere may exist to produce inaccurate readings and nuisance false alarms. “Dockable” device is designed to detect CO in the 0 to 1,500 ppm range. It offers a simple calibration to a common standard of carbon monoxide gas and is said to produce accurate readings in atmospheres with hydrogen concentrations in excess of 750 ppm.

GasBadge Pro also can be quickly adapted with interchangeable smart sensors to monitor unsafe levels of oxygen or any of several toxic gases, including ammonia, carbon monoxide, chlorine, chlorine dioxide, hydrogen cyanide, hydrogen sulfide, nitrogen dioxide, phosphine, and sulfur dioxide. It features a large LCD with backlight for visibility in low light. It can be configured to display gas readings in percent by volume or parts per million and can show gas type and direct gas readings or just gas type. Four-button interface can be password-protected for security.

Monitors come standard with STEL and TWA readings, data logging of up to one year of survey data, and an event-logger that records the past 15 alarm events. Devices are compatible with the company’s DS2 docking station and iNet monitoring service to help simplify and automate calibration, function (bump) testing, and data management.
