Industrial Scientific has introduced the Tango™ TX1 single gas monitor. By wearing the Tango, the company claims, workers will be the ‘safest single gas monitor users’ in the world.
A three-year runtime and patent pending DualSense™ Technology increases worker safety, regardless of bump test frequency, while reducing overall maintenance costs.
The Tango detects carbon monoxide (CO), hydrogen sulfide (H2S), sulfur dioxide (SO2) and nitrogen dioxide (NO2). Its revolutionary patent pending DualSense Technology includes two of the same type sensor for the detection of a single gas. The two sensor readings are processed through a proprietary algorithm and displayed as a single reading to the user. DualSense Technology was developed to address the major challenge of making sure workers are always using fully functioning, reliable instruments in the field.
Until the Tango, that required a bump test of the instrument before each day’s use. With Tango’s DualSense Technology, workers are ‘exponentially safer’ regardless of bump test frequency.
The monitor is powered by one replaceable 2/3 AA lithium battery that will power it continuously for up to three years, even if the instrument is being used in the optional ‘always on’ mode. After the battery can no longer support instrument life, it can be easily replaced for another three years of continuous operation.
With a three-year instrument warranty, three-year carbon CO and H2S sensor warranty, and two-year warranty on the SO2 and NO2 sensors, the Tango is described by Industrial Scientific as the most cost-effective instrument on the market today.
The Tango is compatible with iNet®, Industrial Scientific’s Gas Detection as a Service solution. iNet is a software-based service that increases safety by providing visibility into gas detector alarms, exposure and usage. With iNet, customers do not have to buy gas detectors; instead, they can subscribe to iNet and receive Gas Detection as a Service.
