IS, which is calling Tango the safest single gas monitor in the world, said the unit could detect carbon monoxide, hydrogen sulfide, sulfur dioxide and nitrogen dioxide. The patent pending DualSense technology includes two of the same type sensors for the detection of a single gas.
“The two sensor readings are processed through a proprietary algorithm and displayed as a single reading to the user,” the company said.
“DualSense technology was developed to address the major challenge of making sure workers are always using fully functioning, reliable instruments in the field.
“Until Tango, that required a bump test of the instrument before each day’s use. With Tango’s DualSense technology, workers are exponentially safer regardless of bump test frequency.”
The Tango TX1 is powered by one replaceable 2/3 AA lithium battery that will power it continuously for up to three years, even if the instrument is being used in the optional “always on” mode.
The battery can also be replaced when needed to give the unit a further three years of continuous service life.
Industrial Scientific is providing the unit with a three-year instrument warranty, three-year carbon CO and H2S sensor warranty, and two-year warranty on the SO2 and NO2 sensors.
The Tango also is compatible with iNet, the company’s gas detection as a service solution.
iNet is a software-based service that increases safety by providing visibility into gas detector alarms, exposure and usage, so customers do not have to buy gas detectors – instead they can subscribe to iNet and receive gas detection as a service.
