Industrial Scientific, the global leader in gas detection, is pleased to announce that effective immediately, all products will be manufactured according to European Union Directive 2011/65/EU Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) Standard. All products shipped from Industrial Scientific manufacturing facilities to European customers will meet RoHS compliance standards. RoHS Directive 2011/65/EU prohibits the sale of electronics with certain hazardous materials to member countries. The substances include lead, cadmium, mercury, hexavalent chromium, polybrominated biphenyls, and polybrominated diphenyl ethers. The goal of RoHS is to reduce the impact of global consumer electronic waste. Each of the prohibited chemicals has been shown to have negative health effects on humans through direct contact, even at low exposure levels, and when electronics containing the chemicals are discarded. “Industrial Scientific is dedicated to preserving human life, so it only makes sense that we are also fully committed to protecting the environment and reducing exposure to hazardous chemicals,” said Justin McElhattan, president and CEO of Industrial Scientific. “By eliminating the restricted materials from our products, Industrial Scientific is protecting our employees from any potential exposure while reducing the environmental impact our products have on our communities.” About Industrial Scientific Corporation As the global leader in gas detection, Industrial Scientific provides gas detection products and services that keep workers safe in hazardous environments. The company’s 700 employees in 21 countries are committed to preserving human life and have dedicated their careers to eliminating death on the job by the year 2050.

Patent
Industrial Scientific Corporation | Date: 2016-12-13

Environmental monitoring devices for detecting and warning users of unhealthy levels of a given substance are disclosed having more than one sensor for each substance to be detected. A processing unit, wirelessly coupled to the sensors in the devices can be configured to receive each of the output signals from the sensors, determine a detection signal for the substance based on the output signals, determine a gain of a majority of the sensors, and generate a calibration action responsive to the output signals deviating by a threshold amount, wherein the calibration action comprises adjusting a gain of a deviating sensor to correspond with the gain of the majority of sensors.

Industrial Scientific, the global leader in gas detection, is pleased to announce the release of iNet® Now Live Monitoring Software. iNet Now enables real-time monitoring of worker location, environment, and status. Should a worker encounter a gas hazard, be immobilized, or have the need to escalate a condition through a panic alarm, text and email alerts, including a map of the area, are sent to designated contacts. By using iNet Now, workers can have peace of mind that potentially dangerous conditions or situations will be escalated to someone able to take action. iNet Now Live Monitoring Software provides several advantages that lead to better overall safety and productivity: iNet Now is also compatible with all LENS™ Wireless devices, including the Ventis® Pro Series and Radius™ BZ1. The combination of LENS Wireless and iNet Now makes it easier than ever to see the state of both wearable gas detectors and area monitors as they are deployed across work teams. “We are excited to add iNet Now to our portfolio of connected worker solutions that enable more potentially at-risk and lone workers to make it home alive at the end of the day,” said Justin McElhattan, president of Industrial Scientific. iNet Now is part of Industrial Scientific’s iNet® Integrated Solution for Gas Detection that includes iNet® Control Gas Detection Management Software and iNet® Exchange Gas Detection as a Service. Any of the offerings in iNet may be used individually or combined to provide complete visibility into gas detection programs of any size. To learn more, visit http://www.indsci.com/inet.

Patent
Industrial Scientific Corporation | Date: 2014-12-22

Methods, systems, and computer-readable media for monitoring a gas are generally described. In some embodiments, the concentration of a gas may be predicted based on gas measurement information received from a gas sensor and gas sensor response information for the gas sensor. The gas sensor response information may include a response curve. In some embodiments, the response curve may include a curve generated based on a Sigmoid function and/or a curve of the first derivative thereof. In some embodiments, the predicted gas measurement value may be generated by predicting an asymptotic value of the gas measurement information based on a rate of change of the concentration of the gas and the response curve.

Patent
Industrial Scientific Corporation | Date: 2016-01-15

Monitoring systems and apparatuses and methods for using same are generally described. A gas monitoring system may include a base component and a module component. The module may be configured to be operably coupled to the base component through corresponding interface connectors. The system may be monitor for gases and generate alarms relating thereto, when the module is connected to the base. The base and/or module may have limited or no functionality when disconnected from the module and/or base. The module may include components that typically have an increased potential for upgrades, replacement, maintenance, or other modifications. The base may include components that typically have a lower rate of being upgraded, replaced, or requiring maintenance. In this manner, high maintenance components may be arranged in a module that has a smaller and more portable form factor as compared to the base and the system overall.
