GMI launches new PS500 5-Gas Portable Monitor

GMI is pleased to announce the launch of the PS500 5-gas portable monitor that offers high performance detection of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC’s) through market-leading PID technology.

Detecting and displaying up to 5 gases simultaneously using “plug and play” sensor design, the PS500 is suitable for a host of applications in a variety of industries using electrochemical, catalytic, infra-red, and PID sensing technologies.

With an expansive list of gases that can be detected for fast response times, a high level of accuracy and audible and visual alarms; the PS500 provides unrivalled protection against the potential exposure to flammable and toxic gases, along with threats of oxygen enrichment or deficiency.

The PS500 is ideal for confined space applications.  Pre-entry checking can be carried out with the optional internal sampling pump and through diffusion operation ensuring maximum battery life in confined spaces.
