MSA introduces Apple iOS X/S Connect App for MSA ULTIMA X5000 and General Monitors S5000 gas monitors

September 4, 2018 – With the launch of the Apple iOS X/S Connect App for the MSA ULTIMA X5000 and the General Monitors S5000 Gas Monitors, the industrial toxic and combustible gas detection platform takes another step in industrial safety.

The X5000 and S5000 Gas Monitors are toxic and combustible gas monitoring solutions for a range of hazardous industries.  These detectors feature Bluetooth wireless technology and can now connect with MSA’s new Apple iOS X/S Connect App along with the previously released Android X/S Connect App. Workers can wirelessly access the X5000 and S5000 Gas Monitors from up to 75 feet (23 meters) away using their Bluetooth enabled smartphone or tablet with the app of their choice. 

Due to tight plant equipment layouts, gas detectors are often placed in difficult to reach high locations or crowded equipment areas near piping, valves and other installed equipment where gas leaks can potentially occur.  With the X/S Connect App, workers no longer need to perform ladder climbs, stand on temporary scaffolds or work in awkward positions to perform routine gas detector tasks on the X5000 and S5000 Gas Monitors. Workers can quickly see status at a glance on their mobile device, which show a gas reading gauge, progress bar, operational status, maintenance alerts and alarms.  The real-time availability of this data helps workers rapidly set-up, operate and maintain the detectors for better efficiency and use of their time.

In addition to a choice of the two wireless Bluetooth mobile access architectures, the X5000 and S5000 offer several other distinct improvements in gas detection starting with their sensor technologies. MSA’s XCell gas sensors with TruCal technology offer calibration cycles up to 18 months (local calibration respected). The X5000 and S5000 can detect combustible gas (0 to 100% LEL), CO2, H2S or CO in multiple ppm ranges, as well as 0-25% O2. The gas transmitter's touch-screen interface can navigate without the use of cumbersome handheld devices.
