Beacons Update the Location of Compatible Devices in Real Time, Enabling Live Reminders and Simplified Record Keeping.

Industrial Scientific, the global leader in gas detection, is pleased to introduce iAssign™ Beacons. These beacons use iAssign™ Technology to automatically assign site names to Ventis™ Pro Series gas monitors and other compatible products within a defined range. Site assignments change automatically as a Ventis Pro user leaves one defined beacon area and moves to another, simply and accurately connecting users, sites, and events.
Determining the location of an individual within a facility or plant can be challenging. The beacon continuously broadcasts a site identifier, which triggers the site to be updated on the user’s device. iAssign Beacon zones are programmable between 1 and 30 meters. Permission levels can also be programmed in each beacon. iAssign provides a more complete picture of what’s happening across a worksite, enabling safety managers to take action to prevent repeated hazards.
iAssign Beacons solve the challenge of real time location identification enabling real time access control, safety suggestions and permission-level alerts when entering restricted areas. Additionally this also allows more precise and consistent site recordings when GPS is unavailable and improved clarity around worker and location names in the instrument’s data log files.
“iAssign Technology is a simple solution for a big problem that many customers face,” said Scott Jubeck, director of product management, instrumentation. “Knowing that workers repeatedly run into a high gas exposure at ‘Valve 37’ is an opportunity to correct a potentially deadly hazard before it’s too late.”
