The iTrans DS2 Docking Station is the world’s first system that automates calibration, record-keeping and instrument diagnostics for fixed-point gas monitors, according to its manufacturer. Until now, these functions had to be manually performed by a field technician carrying cylinders of gas around to each sensor in a facility. With sensors in hard to reach places, technicians faced additional hazards from climbing ladders, going over pipe racks, or avoiding other obstacles. These and other complications have made it difficult for companies to follow industry best practices for routine testing and calibration of their fixed-point gas monitors.
