INDUSTRIAL SCIENTIFIC INTRODUCES THE DSX DOCKING STATION

Industrial Scientific, the global leader in Gas Detection as a service, today introduced the DSX™ Docking Station, the only gas detector maintenance and record keeping solution suited to support the needs and requirements of every customer, regardless of size, location, or infrastructure.

The DSX is the most versatile and cost-effective docking station available, and builds upon Industrial Scientific’s 16-year history of docking station innovation that began with the DS1000 docking station, introduced to the market in 1999.

With industry safety regulations becoming increasingly stringent and life-saving instrument maintenance getting more attention than ever before, the DSX Docking Station provides three easy-to-choose-from operating modes: standalone, cloud-connected (DSXi), and local server (DSX-L).

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. With the use of a DSXi activation key, the DSX Standalone becomes a cloud-connected, fully automated instrument maintenance station. There is no need to send anything back for activation – all upgrades are easily performed in the field.

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.

The DSXi provides an optional automatic calibration gas replenishment program, eliminating the need to keep up with gas cylinder status.  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.

“We wanted to provide our customers with a specific solution that would solve their biggest gas detector maintenance pains, simplify their docking station selection process, and ensure them that every instrument is being properly used and maintained,” said Bill Marencel, Global Director of Single Gas Solutions and Portable Accessories. “I believe that with the DSX we have accomplished that.”
