PITTSBURGH, PA – 18 July 2019 – Industrial Scientific, the global leader in gas detection, is pleased to introduce the RGX™ Gateway in additional geographies outside the US and Canada. The RGX Gateway enables designated safety contacts to receive real-time alerts for gas hazards, panic, and man-down situations happening in-plant or in the field. A live map shows the location of workers and current conditions, improving response times and arming emergency personnel with critical information.
Designed for hazardous locations, the RGX Gateway is compatible with Ventis® Pro Multi-Gas Monitors and Radius® BZ1 Area Monitors. Through the LENS™ Wireless instrument-to-instrument communication system, the monitors share gas readings and alarms with one another and the RGX Gateway. The gateway then transmits readings through cell, wi-fi, or Ethernet to iNet® Now Live Monitoring software, which alerts key team members within seconds of an incident. The combination of LENS-enabled gas monitors and the gateway enhances the ability to get data to the cloud from complex locations such as confined spaces or plants where a typical wireless connection may be obstructed.
“The RGX is truly designed to go where the work is. With an ATEX Zone 2 hazardous classification and an ingress protection rating of IP65, the gateway can be used in hazardous environments as well as most weather conditions,” said Ryan Thompson, associate product manager.
The RGX Gateway can be deployed for permit tasks that last hours, incidents that last days, or projects that last weeks by using the rechargeable 168-hour (7 day) run-time battery. For longer, more permanent applications, the RGX Gateway is also compatible with a variety of external power supplies, allowing it to run indefinitely.
The RGX Gateway launched in the US and Canada with Class 1 Division 2 certification in 2018. It will begin shipping with ATEX Zone 2 certification to the EU on August 5, 2019, and Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, UAE, Kuwait, South Africa, Bahrain, Mexico, Taiwan, South Korea, Australia, and New Zealand in Q3 2019. In Q4 2019, the RGX will be available in China.
