With the push of a button, employees can now use their G7cs to collaborate with co-workers just like a traditional walkie-talkie.

“After listening to dozens of customers in energy, telecom, utilities and aerospace sectors, we are the first to bring to market the tool that industry is asking for — a gas detector with built-in two-way radio,” says Sean Stinson, VP Sales & Product Management at Blackline Safety.

“This is a significant accomplishment that took our in-house engineering team over 12 months to create and launch. The result is the world’s most versatile connected gas detector that enables efficient employee communications, converging two devices into one while saving the added expense of a two-way radio.

The G7c is priced at $489 USD, and push-to-talk with gas detection service plans start at just $30/month, which means substantial cost savings on what would otherwise be an investment in separate pieces of equipment.

Combining connected gas detection and two-way radio functionality, Blackline’s G7 platform provides businesses with peace of mind, helps to control costs and keep teams safe.

Rather than the usual 16 or 32 channels offered by many conventional two-way radios, G7c push-to-talk delivers up to 99 channels for communication between teams, across facilities and even between different countries (3G enabled)— all without the need for Wi-Fi or other costly infrastructure.

G7c devices work right out of the box, automatically connecting to wireless networks in more than 100 countries.

We will be in Houston, Texas next week.

Blackline Safety will be demonstrating the new Push-To-Talk (PTT) feature on our G7c devices at the 2018 National Safety Congress & Expo held in Houston, Texas, from Oct. 22 - 24. Come and see us at Booth #4501!
