Pre-orders opened for world’s first direct-to-cloud area gas monitor

Mar 11 2020

Blackline Safety is now accepting pre-orders for G7 EXO, the industry’s first direct-to-cloud, drop-and-go area gas monitor with an unprecedented battery life of over100 days. G7 EXO, designed to withstand the harshest of conditions, addresses the challenges of traditional systems by introducing 4G cellular and satellite connectivity to deliver a user-friendly, long-lasting solution. Select customers and partners are now conducting G7 EXO field trials to experience firsthand the new era of area gas monitoring for oil and chemical terminals, fence lines and perimeters, spill sites, drilling rigs and facility maintenance projects. Launching Spring 2020, G7 EXO will enable businesses around the world to see the impact that cloud connectivity will have on operational efficiencies and their environmental, social and governance (ESG) programs.

“For the first time, businesses can remotely keep an eye on worksites alongside the safety of their teams using a single, seamless platform,” said Gavin Boorman, Managing Director of Blackline Safety Europe. “G7 EXO area gas monitors along with our G7 wearables continuously stream situational insights to the Blackline Safety Cloud, delivering a complete picture of a business’s operations. G7 EXO makes it easy for companies to adopt the latest in industrial cloud-connected technology so they can focus on their work while accounting for the wellbeing of workers and facilities along the way.”

With an industry-leading run time of over 100 days for a four-gas configuration, the G7 EXO can save hours in traveling from a jobsite to another location to change batteries. This enhances a team’s productivity by keeping them in the field longer and more focused on their job at hand.

G7 EXO is also easier to set up and maintain than any other area gas monitor on the market. While traditional area gas monitors require users to establish a mesh network that requires line of sight between monitors, G7 EXO offers instant connectivity when powered on. Competitors’ mesh networks are also vulnerable to communications interruptions and limit the number of devices as well as the service area range. In contrast, G7 EXO area gas monitors work around the globe and connect directly to the Blackline Safety Cloud without any range limits between area gas monitors and worker-worn G7 gas monitors. Since each G7 EXO and employee-worn monitor connects directly to the Blackline Safety Cloud, there is no need for industrial-grade smartphones, cellular gateways or Wi-Fi connections to link on-site personnel and area gas monitors to remote teams.

G7 EXO will work with cloud-hosted geographic zones that map a site into several areas to deliver a better way of alerting on-site personnel when there’s gas in the area. Connecting to the Blackline Cloud, G7 EXO alerts everyone in the zone through their G7 connected wearable monitors. Zones support an unlimited number of G7 EXO area gas monitors and G7 wearables, ensuring no one on the jobsite is unaware of a gas exposure in the area. By connecting to the Blackline cloud, live monitoring personnel are able to despatch nearby responders or evacuate the area. No one is left unaware or behind.

This instrument, capable of monitoring up to five gases simultaneously, is supported by the industry’s only 24/7 live monitoring service, provided by Blackline’s in-house Safety Operations Centre (SOC) and international network of partner Alarm Receiving Centres (ARC). There is also an optional push-to-talk voice communication across 100 channels. G7 EXO integrates seamlessly with G7 wearables and features integrated GPS and location beacon positioning technology, modularity with plug-and-play cartridges that support more than 20 gas sensor options automated usage and compliance reporting and Cloud-stored configuration profiles for drop-and-go deployment. This unit is protected by a rugged, aluminium subframe with rubberised bumpers for the harshest conditions.
