Industrial Scientific (Pittsburgh, PA) has introduced the DSX
Docking Station, a gas detector maintenance and record-keep-ing solution suited to support the needs and requirements of
every customer, regardless of size, location or infrastructure.
The DSX Docking Station provides three operating modes:
• Standalone: The DSX Standalone is an out-of-the-box solution
that requires no network configuration or support. It provides
easy bump testing and calibration of instruments, automated
record keeping and automated instrument wake-up and instrument battery charging.
• Cloud-connected (DSXi): The DSXi is a cloud-connected record
storage, fleet management and automated maintenance and
notification station. It provides customers with the ability to manage gas detectors,
access exposure and maintenance reports, see the status of each calibration gas
cylinder across the facility and schedule equipment updates from anywhere on any
web-enabled PC or mobile device.
• Local server (DSX-L): In local server mode, the DSX offers the option to automatically
store data from all docking stations behind the local firewall, addressing network and
data storage restrictions and preferences.
