IndSci Ventis Pro5 – Multi Gas Meter

Overview

The Ventis Pro5 multi gas monitor gives you the power to monitor up to five gases simultaneously and manage worker safety any time, anywhere. Connect workers for live monitoring to instantly receive real-time location data, man-down alarms, and gas alerts so that your team always has help. With comprehensive list of toxic gases the Ventis Pro5 offers complete peace of mind for worker safety. With the wearable form factor the Ventis Pro5 can be worn by workers in any environment even to monitor VOC’s for critical safety applications.

Why should I use a 5-gas monitor like the Ventis Pro5?

The Ventis Pro5 is ideal for both personal monitoring and confined space entries thanks to the available pump options. It uses wireless connectivity to add an extra layer of protection and visibility to an already robust multi gas monitor.

Using a multi gas monitor advances the level of detection, giving you better awareness of the gas hazards around you. The Ventis Pro5 is, of course, capable of detecting even more gases than the Ventis MX4 and has DualSense™ capabilities.

With the Ventis Pro5, you can set custom, actionable alarms for up to five of the following gases: combustibles/LEL, CI2, CO, CO2, H2S, HCN, NO2, NH3, O2, PH3, SO2 or VOCs. These custom alarm messages make it easy for users to respond appropriately to gas hazards. For example, you can customize the alarm to tell users to “EVACUATE” or “WEAR SCBA” depending on the gas and threshold.

With a man-down alarm, panic button, and extensive connectivity capabilities, you and your workers will be at ease. Wireless connectivity relays gas readings and other worker safety stats to live monitoring software via cellular, wi-fi, or satellite, or to your workers on-site with peer-to-peer. You can then receive real-time alerts that show who needs help, why they need help, and where they’re located. Whether you’re working side by side or far apart, the Ventis Pro5 keeps you and your workers on the same page.

How does the Ventis Pro5 share gas readings locally with other monitors?

More and more companies are turning to gas detectors linked by mesh networks to connect workers and share gas readings without costly infrastructure or the hassles of IT setup.

Mesh networks use monitors as nodes to efficiently transmit data. In a mesh network, the data hops from node to node until it reaches its destination. Think of a mesh network as students in a classroom: A student on one side of the room can pass a note to the other side of the room by handing it to a neighbor, who then passes the note to their own neighbor, all the way across the room.

Whereas other networks might fail if one device loses connection, mesh networks can be self-healing. Self-healing mesh networks, such as the ones Industrial Scientific devices use, continue to transmit information across the network even if one node or device disconnects. This means workers will always have a connection to other workers on the network.

Other peer-to-peer wireless networks require IT setup, infrastructure, and a central controller. The beauty of mesh networks—such as LENS® Wireless from Industrial Scientific—is that they offer workers out-of-the-box operability without IT setup.

Mesh networks give safety managers several more benefits over other peer-to-peer wireless technologies, including:

  • Improved Site Communications: Though gas hazards are an immediate issue for the workers exposed to them, they can also threaten others nearby. A mesh network extends worker visibility up to a mile away, so workers are always aware of hazards on-site.
  • Faster Response Times: With a mesh network, there’s no need to rely on a central controller or laptop to track peer readings. Every worker with a connected device can see peer readings and alarms, giving them immediate visibility into hazards so they can make smarter, faster, and safer decisions.
  • Safer Emergency Response: Would-be rescuer fatalities are still too common, but mesh networks can help change that. Connected gas monitors can ensure panic and man-down alarms are relayed to other workers in the area so they can see what they are about to encounter.
  • Smarter Decision-Making: Mesh networks ensure that every connected device receives peer alerts and gas readings so workers have all the information they need before making decisions. Informed decisions are smarter decisions that ensure the safety of all workers.

No Infrastructure Required: Wireless networks are only valuable if you can use them. Without the time-consuming site surveys, IT setup, and configuration that other networks require, mesh networks such as LENS Wireless get you up and running quickly and easily.

Technical Specs

Connectivity is critical to collecting valuable site safety data and getting workers the help they need, when they need it.

See all your people in one place with flexible, automatic connectivity to iNet Now live monitoring using cellular, wi-fi, or satellite. Respond quickly in an emergency with real-time alerts that show who needs help, why they need help, and where they’re located.

The result? A fully-connected workforce—without additional infrastructure or IT setup.

  • Alarm
    Take the guesswork out of gas detection by setting custom, actionable alarms for up to five of the following gases: LEL (Methane), LEL (Pentane), Cl2, CO, CO2, H2S, HCN, NO2, NH3, O2, PH3, SO2 and VOCs.
  • Ribbon badge
    Endure the harshest conditions thanks to an IP68 rating, backed by a Guaranteed for Life™ warranty.
  • Rotation
    Improve asset management by easily assigning monitors to your team, so you know who had the monitor when it went into alarm or went missing.
  • Core
    Reduce the risks and costs of having different gas detectors in the field by using one 5 gas monitor for everything from personal monitoring to confined space entry.
