Calibration Station or Docking Station

Which one do you need for your gas detectors?

DSX Docking Station

Proper instrument maintenance is the foundation of a sound gas detection safety program. Personal gas detector manufacturers as well as regulatory agencies recommend and require that, at a minimum, the instruments go through a functional (bump) test and calibration check (or full calibration if necessary), before use.

The extent of a maintenance program depends on company needs, size, location, and infrastructure, and the most common way to adhere to gas detector maintenance requirements is through one of these three methods: manual bump tests and calibrations, calibration stations, or docking stations.

It is the intent of this white paper to present the benefits and limitations of each option, and more importantly to provide a clear difference between a calibration station and a docking station.

You will also learn about Industrial Scientific’s DSX™ Docking Station – a three-in-one hardware platform that easily transitions from standalone gas detector maintenance automation, to a feature-rich fleet management system accessible from any mobile browser or web-enabled PC, anywhere in the world.

Regardless of which option is best for your company, being well informed is key. Download this white paper to help you decide “Calibration Station or Docking Station – Which one do you need for your gas detectors?”
