Blackline Safety launches G6 wearable for gas detection
September 19, 2022 By SP&T Staff
Blackline Safety Corp. has announced the launch of a new connected wearable designed for single-gas detection.
The new G6 personal gas detector offers fast incident response time and a more efficient way to manage safety and compliance.
The new wearable is designed for long-lasting connectivity that industrial organizations can use to harness real-time vital safety data in scenarios where disposable, traditional beep-and-flash detectors are commonly used.
The G6 leverages the “latest in Internet of Things cellular connectivity.” It also has a reportedly longer battery life, lower cost of ownership and fewer false alarms. It gives safety professionals access to the data they need to manage their safety protocols, processes, and ongoing compliance.
“With this new technology, we’re bringing unprecedented levels of connectivity to industrial workplaces, helping to reduce the risk of injury, boost productivity and bring proactive safety management to a new level,” said Cody Slater, CEO and chair, Blackline Safety in a statement.
“We’re responding to a direct need in the market, giving safety managers higher performing technology to access reliable, actionable data at their fingertips.”
Below is a summary of some the G6’s key features:
- Direct-to-cloud cellular connectivity.
- Safety management through the Blackline Live software portal, with the ability to view an entire fleet of devices from a single screen and deliver automatic, over-the-air firmware and configuration updates.
- Real-time notifications and GPS mapping to locate workers and devices and understand what’s happening on the ground.
- Sensor options to quickly alert workers to exposure of toxic gases, including hydrogen sulfide (H2S), carbon monoxide (CO), oxygen (O2) and sulfur dioxide (SO2).
- Higher precision short-term exposure limit (STEL) monitoring.
- Long-life rechargeable battery that lasts up to one year.
- Device life of up to four years, double the life span of competitive models.
