User friendly gas monitor
29 April 2013
The new ProtÃ©gÃ© ZM Single Gas Monitor from Scott Safety is a zero maintenance single gas monitor that is easy to use and delivers high performance in a small, ergonomically designed package. The monitor comes with a battery that provides two years of operation and in typical conditions, calibration will not be necessary during the operational lifetime.
Three single gas models are available including Oxygen, Carbon Monoxide and Hydrogen Sulphide. The ProtÃ©gÃ© ZM is small, lightweight, ergonomically designed and meets IP67 requirements for ingress protection.
"We designed this monitor with ease of use and comfort in mind. It's so lightweight and small, you will forget you're wearing it while it protects you," says Scott Safety's Mel Gerst. "The monitor is very simple to use.
Just turn it on for the first time, and it does the rest.
Using the default settings from the factory there is no need to set up or program the monitor." Customisable settings of the ProtÃ©gÃ© ZM include a Hibernate mode on the CO and H2S models. The Hibernate mode puts the monitor in a deep sleep for up to one year to extend the operating life beyond two years. Users can customise the alarm set points themselves or order monitors with custom alarm set points programmed by the factory.
Users can also set up custom bump and calibration reminders if they desire.
