The Industrial Scientific LENS Wireless communication technology is based on military ad hoc mesh networking concepts. It enables gas monitors to communicate with each other wirelessly with no need for IT set-up, infrastructure or a central controller.

The Ventis Pro Series Multi-Gas Monitors and Radius BZ1 Area Monitors are both available with the product. It enables personal, portable gas monitors to communicate directly with area monitors to share gas readings and alarm conditions.

Groups are quick and easy to create, allowing for rapid deployment and use in a broad range of applications. Instruments enabled with the technology begin communicating seconds after tapping two or more instruments together. Area monitors connect wirelessly out of the box with no need for set-up or additional equipment.

The product helps workers in any industry respond faster, and with real-time information, when hazardous conditions occur. Now, when a gas hazard, man-down or panic situation causes an instrument to alarm, all peers in the connected group will instantly be notified of the hazard and the person in danger. When seconds matter, workers can rely on help from peers nearby, rather than a control room or an off-site call centre.

Features include viewing panic and man-down alarms from any user in the group; identifying a peer alarm type in real time, enabling a faster, more appropriate response; using any monitor to view gas readings from up to 24 peers in real time, without needing a separate central controller to relay the information; receiving readings from up to 1.5 km away with wireless signal hopping between instruments; maintaining the integrity of the wireless group, even if a single instrument unexpectedly drops off the network; and protecting data while safely and securely sharing gas alarms and readings over an encrypted network.
