What are the functions of gas detector tester?
The gas detector tester can help make safety decisions easier. JXCT gas detector not only provides clear gas detector status and sensor information, but also reminds you how to deal with the alarm. This way you don't have to worry about interpreting the alarm readings from the gas detector tester. So, what are the basic functions of the gas detector?
Meet the application requirements
Most multi-gas detectors have two versions: pumping detection and diffusion detection, but these two versions cannot be switched at will, that is, the diffusion version can be used for personal protection, but not for sampling detection in confined spaces.
Pumped gas detectors draw gas from an unknown, potentially toxic or flammable gas environment into the detector to determine if the area is safe. It's literally the pump that keeps you out of harm's way. After evaluating an air sample with an aspirated gas detector and confirming that it does not contain any toxic or flammable gases, enter the targeted confined space to perform any task. However, the pump does not increase the detection range of the gas detector or make it more effective. A gas detector will only detect gas that passes through the sensor. The pump in the gas detector does not increase the amount of gas detected by the sensor. This pump allows you to easily sample and detect unknown spaces from a distance.
Status warning and maintenance reminder
Multi-gas detectors have pre-programmed maintenance reminders such as “bump test due” or “calibration due” pop-ups that automatically pop up on the screen, so you don’t have to guess when the detector is ready for use.
Alarm behavior prompt and full screen alarm
When a gas detector tester sounds an alarm, you need to know what to do right away. When the detector communicates the correct operating cues, you will be able to make safer choices quickly and easily. Customized alarm operation information such as "evacuate" or "wear air call" echoes the alarm settings, so that you can take correct measures in emergency situations.
Full screen alarm can display alarm information on the entire display screen. This reminder allows you to focus on the gas that is triggering the alarm without being distracted by non-critical readings. The more sensor information, the more it needs to be interpreted, which will increase the response time, but in the face of danger, every second counts.
Wireless interconnection function
Point-to-point wireless interconnection function, connect nearby gas detectors to the network, and automatically share gas readings, alarm data, etc. When a gas detector goes into alarm, peer-to-peer wireless connectivity within the gas detector ensures that everyone on the team has the information they need to act quickly without the guesswork of what to do.
Whether instrument alarms are triggered by gas hazards, fainting or panic situations, all members of the wirelessly connected team will know immediately who is in danger and why. Workers can even take readings from vigilante area monitors so they know if a gas hazard is spreading into their work area.
This feature is critical for confined space applications. It has been reported that more than 60% of the fatal accidents in confined spaces are caused by rescuers blindly rescuing team members because the people in the confined space cannot communicate with the outside world about the danger. Connecting gas detectors through a peer-to-peer wireless connection empowers everyone with the information they need to make the right decisions that save lives.
Support real-time monitoring
Real-time monitoring is a leap in the development of gas detection. It allows safety managers to see in real time when workers are in danger. What the specific dangers are, where the workers are in real time. Whether you need help. Real-time monitoring provides security managers with the information they need. To help them respond quickly in emergency situations and improve safety outcomes.
Real-time monitoring often requires special gateways, networks or wireless connections to send information to the cloud. Some gas detector tester designs include the above function module, so you can turn on this function option when needed.
