A new white paper entitled ‘DualSense™ Technology: Why two are safer than one’ has been released by Industrial Scientific, a resource for those who want to learn more about this technology platform.
DualSense Technology is found in the company’s newest single gas monitor – the TangoTM TX1.
The white paper reveals statistics on the low frequency of gas detector bump tests being performed, and the risks workers take by using an instrument that has not been proven fully functional and reliable via a bump test.
This data, derived from a study of more than 25,000 gas monitors used in the field and more than two million bump tests, prompted the development of the redundant sensor technology.
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. With Tango’s DualSense Technology, workers are safer regardless of bump test frequency.
