by Brianna Crandall — October 21, 2019 — Industrial Scientific, a global provider of connected sensing technology, recently announced the expansion of its connected safety portfolio to include a new Wi-Fi battery for the Ventis Pro5 Multi-Gas Monitor for customers in the United States and Canada.
The new battery uses standard Wi-Fi networks to instantly transmit data directly to cloud-based iNet Now software, providing real-time alerts and visibility into gas hazards, panic, and man-down situations.
With data transmitted instantly to iNet Now, FMs and safety managers can receive real-time alerts when a worker is in distress and quickly access the data they need to monitor sites, keep workers safe, and make smart decisions in the moment. Real-time insights on where workers are located and what hazards they face gives organizations the power to increase productivity, reduce risk, and strengthen their safety culture, notes the company.
Tae Won, product manager at Industrial Scientific, stated:
We believe that instant visibility into worker safety will save more lives and provides our customers with valuable insights to continuously improve worker safety. The new Wi-Fi battery gives organizations easy, cost-effective access to live monitoring.
The new Wi-Fi battery is designed to run 16 hours on a single charge and is compatible with existing chargers and the DSX Docking Station.
Current Ventis Pro5 customers can easily convert their personal multi-gas monitor to a wirelessly connected Wi-Fi monitor by simply switching the battery pack, points out the company. The Wi-Fi battery is also available as an option for all new Ventis Pro5 Multi-Gas Monitors.
