MSA launches new Apple iOS X/S Connect App for its next generation gas monitors
With the launch of the new Apple® iOS X/S Connect App for the MSA ULTIMA® X5000 and the General Monitors S5000 Gas Monitors, the world’s most advanced industrial toxic and combustible gas detection platform takes another giant leap ahead in industrial safety.
The X5000 and S5000 Gas Monitors are the ideal toxic and combustible gas monitoring solutions for a wide range of hazardous industries. These detectors feature Bluetooth® wireless technology and can now connect with MSA’s new Apple iOS X/S Connect App along with the previously released Android® X/S Connect App. Workers will appreciate the safety and convenience of wirelessly accessing the X5000 and S5000 Gas Monitors from up to 75 feet (23 meters) away using their Bluetooth enabled smartphone or tablet with the app of their choice.
Due to tight plant equipment layouts, gas detectors are often placed in difficult to reach high locations or crowded equipment areas near piping, valves and other installed equipment where gas leaks can potentially occur. With the X/S Connect App, workers no longer need to perform ladder climbs, stand on temporary scaffolds or work in awkward positions to perform routine gas detector tasks on the X5000 and S5000 Gas Monitors. Workers can quickly see status at a glance on their mobile device, which show a gas reading gauge, progress bar, operational status, maintenance alerts and alarms. The real-time availability of this data helps workers rapidly set-up, operate and maintain the detectors for better efficiency and use of their time.
In addition to a choice of the two most popular wireless Bluetooth mobile access architectures, the X5000 and S5000 offer several other distinct improvements in gas detection starting with their sensor technologies. MSA’s patented XCell® gas sensors with TruCal® technology offer calibration cycles up to 18 months (local calibration respected). The X5000 and S5000 can detect combustible gas (0 to 100% LEL), CO2, H2S or CO in multiple ppm ranges, as well as 0-25% O2. MSA’s unique capability to connect two sensor inputs into one transmitter reduces the cost of wiring, conduit and installation time to make safety even more affordable. The gas transmitter's unique touch-screen interface makes it simple to navigate without the use of cumbersome handheld devices.
Safer, smarter, easier and more efficient – the X5000 and S5000 Gas Monitors with their new Apple iOS X/S Connect App are the gas detectors for the 21st century. For more information, visit http://www.msasafety.com/detection
