Industrial Scientific introduces the Radius™ Bz1 Area Monitor with LENS™ wireless
The Radius BZ1 Area Monitor detects up to seven gases and is ideal for long-term projects, routine maintenance, and emergency response
Industrial Scientific, the global leader in gas detection, is pleased to introduce the Radius™ BZ1 Area Monitor. The rugged, transportable Radius BZ1 provides an industry-leading run time of 7 days (168 continuous hours) while excelling at hazard communication, connectivity, and ease of use.
When a gas hazard occurs, the Radius BZ1 ensures that workers in industrial environments not only know that the instrument is alarming, but why, thanks to distinctive audio and visual cues and an extra-large display. Custom alarm action messages allow workers to focus on taking appropriate action depending on the present gas level.
With the Radius BZ1, Industrial Scientific is launching a proprietary wireless platform called LENS™ Wireless. LENS Wireless is a peer-to-peer communication system that enhances worker safety by sharing alarms and gas readings between monitors. LENS Wireless works out of the box, forming a network automatically without the need for a central controller, IT setup, or infrastructure. The simplicity of deploying and using LENS Wireless helps workers to respond faster, and with real-time information, when gas emergencies occur.
The design of the Radius BZ1 also makes the instrument easy to maintain thanks to its intuitive, text-based navigation and the removable, patent-pending SafeCore™ Module. The SafeCore Module allows safety personnel to automatically bump test, calibrate, manage settings, and update software using the DSX™ Docking Station. The interchangeable nature of the SafeCore Module lets instrument owners have a smaller, rotating fleet to ensure continuous gas detection coverage in the field.
“We are looking to redefine area monitoring by making it simpler for the user, yet more sophisticated in terms of the connectivity and safety features it provides,” said Justin McElhattan, president and CEO.
