ATEX-certified connected gas detector

30 May 2017

G7c from Blackline Safety is said to be the world’s first ATEX-certified connected gas detector with 3G wireless, two-way voice communication and live monitoring.

Gone are the days of traditional gas detectors that functioned like smoke alarms, notifying only the wearer of dangerous gas levels. With 3G connectivity, Blackline’s live 24/7 monitoring team automatically connects with workers in distress, managing real-time emergency responses or evacuations when required. Zone 0-certified for use in potentially explosive work environments, G7c is claimed to revolutionise the gas detection industry. 

Blackline Safety is said to be the only manufacturer to offer a connected lone worker and wireless gas detection system with field-replaceable cartridges. With Blackline’s exclusive modular design, teams can customise gas detectors to any industry, application or scenario — choose between a Single- or Quad-gas cartridge, then select from a range of gas sensors including hydrogen sulphide, oxygen, carbon monoxide and flammable gases. Blackline’s affordable G7 Dock automates bump tests and gas sensor calibrations. 

It can be difficult for many businesses to prove their gas detection program compliance. The Blackline Live web portal provides businesses with the opportunity to wirelessly configure G7c devices and track the compliance of their fleet — every bump test and calibration is wirelessly communicated to the Blackline Safety Network, driving a real-time compliance report. The online dashboard provides up-to-date indicators for G7c equipment use and whether any systems are not compliant according to calibration or bump testing requirements. With built-in wireless, there's no software to install, no Wi-Fi networks to configure and no expensive intrinsically safe smartphones with Bluetooth connections to manage.

Blackline is claimed to deliver the world’s first turn-key, work-anywhere connected safety monitoring solution with gas detection, to meet the demanding safety challenges of organisations in over 200 countries. G7c communicates every safety incident and gas alert immediately, empowering an active and optimised emergency response. From detecting gas leaks to monitoring lone workers and evacuating facilities, alarms don’t save people — people save people.
