Lightweight and compact toxic gas detectors with unique datalogging capabilities

Jun 04 2021

According to a UN report: toxic gas inhalation kills a person at work every 30 seconds, which is why ION Science have made protecting human life from the hazards of VOC exposure a major priority. 

ION Science have recently launched the unique and cutting-edge Cub 11.7 eV personal device, the smallest and lightest gas detector of its kind in the world. This exciting development is made possible thanks to 3 decades focused on defending workers against the perils of VOC exposure and ION Science’s world renowned photoionisation detection (PID) technology.

ION Science’s latest toxic gas detection solution is intrinsically safe in locations with potentially explosive gases, operates reliably in temperatures between 0 – 55 °C and is resistant to the effects of humidity or moisture. This gas detector weighs in at a mere 111 grammes so it is comfortable to wear and its compact size enables workers to move around unfettered by cumbersome equipment, and with a battery life of up to 12 hours. 

This new addition to ION Science’s toxic gas detection range monitors more gases than the established Model 10.6 and can now trace methylene chloride, formaldehyde, chloroform, tetrachloroethane, 1, 1, 1, 2- and 1, 1, 2- among many others.

The Cub is the only range of gas detectors that can be locked as a device and offers such an advanced data logging capability. This is an ideal detector for personnel who need to operate in a variety of different locations within their industrial plant as it enables them to just monitor toxic gas exposure in specified zones or areas. This feature ensures clean, uninterrupted data is recorded and enables the correct action to be taken to avoid toxic gas hazards.

The datalogging function is a vital tool for monitoring VOC levels especially for occupational hygienists auditing these hazards. This rugged gas detector offers datalogging on a continuous basis and thus can give a highly accurate view of the levels of toxic gases and the dangers they pose to personnel. A USB docking station receives the data and tailored PC software then creates distinct visual interpretations, such as a graph, of VOC levels.
