Industrial Scientific has introduced the Radius BZ1 Area Monitor. The rugged, transportable Radius BZ1 provides an industry-leading run time of seven days (168 continuous hours) while excelling at hazard communication, connectivity and ease of use, says the manufacturer. 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.
