Apple App Corrals Next-Gen Gas Monitors

Touted as the world’s most advanced industrial toxic and combustible gas detection platform, the MSA ULTIMA X5000 and the General Monitors S5000 gas monitors now have an Apple iOS X/S Connect App for connection and control. The X5000 and S5000 are suitable for use in a wide range of hazardous industries.  They feature Bluetooth wireless technology and can now connect with MSA’s Apple iOS X/S Connect App along with the previously released Android X/S Connect App. Workers can wirelessly access the gas monitors from up to 75 feet (23 meters) away.  With the X/S Connect App, workers will no longer need to perform ladder climbs, stand on temporary scaffolds or work in awkward positions to perform routine gas detector tasks.


In addition to a choice of the two most popular wireless Bluetooth mobile access architectures, the X5000 and S5000 offer several other distinct improvements in gas detection starting with their sensor technologies. MSA’s patented XCell gas sensors with TruCal technology offer calibration cycles up to 18 months (local calibration respected). The X5000 and S5000 can detect combustible gas (0 to 100% LEL), CO2, H2S or CO in multiple ppm ranges, as well as 0-25% O2. MSA’s unique capability to connect two sensor inputs into one transmitter reduces the cost of wiring, conduit and installation time to make safety even more affordable.
