The Trusted PS200 Just Got a Whole Lot More Powerful!

Jun 12 2019 Read 757 Times

The PS200 from GMI, part of 3M Gas & Flame Detection, is a popular multi-gas detector which combines quality, ruggedness and advanced technology in a portable gas monitor, and it now comes with some impressive feature enhancements:

“We are excited to announce that PS200 instruments manufactured from Monday 17th June 2019 onwards will be delivered with a bundle of user and feature enhancements as standard” said Nick Wood, Global Product Marketing Manager at 3M Gas & Flame Detection.

“These enhancements are designed to increase the products performance, improve ease-of-use, and enrich the overall user experience for customers using the PS200 to support their day-to-day safety requirements” Wood says.

One such improvement is as a powerful new datalogging capacity that will enable users to capture all relevant calibration and session data over a 6-month period. This increased capacity allows users to log data over a longer period of time and supports the effective demonstration of compliance in line with audits and internal procedures.

Another helpful addition is a new ‘quick-press’ field calibration mode which will save users time by simplifying the field calibration process.  Users will now be able to visualise their short-term and long-term exposures to Carbon Monoxide (CO) and Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S) enabling them to quickly determine current exposure rates and take appropriate action.

Furthermore, the PS200 can now be ordered with a bundle of user experience upgrades, such as the new ‘quick configuration display’ which enables users to check the configured status (sensors installed, calibration due timeline, pumped or diffusion, and the calibration gas required) of their instrument without fully switching it on. This enables a quicker assessment of the instrument’s suitability for the application or environment of use.

Further user experience upgrades include configurable confidence signals and increased user control around calibration due dates and dead-band levels. Users will now be able to modify the audio and visual signals within their instruments and configure dead-band levels for CO (0-20ppm) and H2S (0-3ppm). This improves flexibility, ease-of-use and offers a more powerful performance.

For instruments equipped to detect Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S), the resolution has also been improved from 1 to 0.1 enabling greater control of alarm set points and ultimately improving a user’s confidence levels when working in harsh environments.

“We believe these enhancements will strengthen the value customers get from our most popular multi-gas product. The PS200 is a successful product for us and has been praised from its quality and robustness over several years. These enhancements build on the core strength of the original PS200.” Wood says. 

The PS200 continues to measure any combination of LEL, Oxygen (O2), Carbon Monoxide (CO) and Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S) making it suitable for a wide range of personal monitoring and confined space applications. In addition to extensive datalogging capabilities, the PS200 is available with an optional internal pump and an extensive range of accessories to meet a wide variety of user applications.

Importantly, the PS200 has been designed to enable easier user maintenance which includes a fully automatic calibration station to simplify product compliance.

The PS200 forms part of the GMI industrial portables portfolio which includes a range of gas detectors designed to keep workers safe in challenging environments. Other industrial portable products include the Protégé ZM (Zero Maintenance) and SG (Single-Gas), a range of single-gas disposable and reusable solutions, and the popular PS500, an up-to-5 gas monitor for more exotic environments and applications.

3M Gas & Flame Detection has brought together industry leading products from Detcon, Simtronics, Oldham, GMI and Scott Safety to provide our customers with fixed-point and portable gas detectors and controllers with proven reputations for quality and reliability.  Every second of every day, our hazardous gas detection monitors are making workplaces like these safer around the world.

“By unifying our expanded portfolio of brands, we’re providing the POG, industrial, hazmat and commercial communities with a single source for a broad line of safety equipment, including an enhanced offering of gas and flame detection system solutions,” Wood continues.

“From the safety managers who are responsible for choosing their team’s equipment to the workers who need confidence in that equipment so they can stay focused on the task at hand, our customers can be assured that we have products, technology and service that can help them be safe and successful”.
