Described as having class-leading performance, the range includes three separate models of dust monitoring devices: the Apex2 I.S, Apex2 I.S Plus and Apex2 I.S Pro.

Employers can view the status of their dust sampling pump on a worker and start, stop or even pause the personal sampling pump from a smart device. The Airwave app is said to be simple and easy to use, provides real-time status updates and allows collected data from the dust detection device to be emailed alongside photos and notes, so simplifying the reporting process.

Achieving IECEx and QPS certification, the Apex2 I.S range and is said to ensure that monitoring and analysis of dust exposure measurement can be carried out safely and effectively.
