What is a gas detector docking station?
A docking station is a system that manages your gas detectors. The station’s automated system reduces time by performing:
- instrument bump tests
- data log download, and
- record keeping.
You can set the station to perform these tasks at a scheduled time. You’re also able to transfer the information to a USB key and save it on a company server or laptop.
This means you can reduce wait times at the start of shifts by scheduling calibration and bump tests to happen during off-peak hours.
Calibration station vs. docking station
Calibration stations used to be the obvious choice for organizations because they made it easy to calibrate a gas monitor.
Today, most docking stations will calibrate your gas detector along with performing bump tests and charging your instrument.
