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 that firmware version 2.1 for Ventis™ Pro Series Multi-Gas Monitors is now available and offers support for additional sensor and language options. Ventis Pro Series monitors, first introduced in April 2016, are small, highly configurable instruments offering LENS™ Wireless and the industry’s only Guaranteed for Life™ warranty. New sensors for the Ventis Pro Series include a dual-range methane IR sensor, a phosphine sensor and a long-life oxygen sensor. The dual-range methane IR sensor is ideal for use in inert atmospheres and for seal checks, leak detection, and when high concentrations of gas would otherwise damage a catalytic bead LEL sensor. The sensor range is 0-100% volume methane with 0.01% resolution from 0-5% volume and 0.1% resolution from 5-100% volume. The phosphine sensor is commonly required for agricultural and food & beverage industry applications. The long-life oxygen sensor is suitable for most industries and is designed to perform in the field for three to five years. With firmware version 2.1, Ventis Pro Series instruments are now accessible for more global users with the addition of Italian, Dutch, Portuguese, and Polish documentation and instrument interfaces. The Ventis Pro also supports English, French, Spanish, and German. To learn more about the Ventis Pro Series visit http://www.indsci.com/ventispro.

Industrial Scientific, the global leader in gas detection, has announced a significant acceleration of the company vision statement timeline. The Industrial Scientific vision, which previously stated the goal of eliminating death on the job “in this century,” has been updated to reflect the company’s new goal of doing so by the year 2050. “Accelerating the timeline of our vision makes this our generation’s problem to solve. We’re inspired by how we’ve seen technology drive safety, and we believe that we’re on the cusp of a massive increase in productivity. These trends should ultimately drive workplace fatalities to zero. We are taking actions to make that outcome a reality as soon as possible,” said Justin McElhattan, president and CEO. Industrial Scientific recently released the Ventis™ Pro Series, the first line of personal gas monitors that wirelessly communicate with each other and with Radius™ BZ1 area monitors, making workers safer and more connected to their peers. The company has plans to expand its capabilities in safety equipment, technologies, and automation to make its vision attainable.

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.

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.
