Industrial Scientific Launches Next Generation Docking Station(TM)



PITTSBURGH -- Industrial Scientific Corporation reinforced its leadership status today, releasing its newest product, the DS2 Docking StationTM, the second generation in the line. Compatible with the Company's iTX multi-gas monitor, the T82 single-gas monitor and the VX500 PhotoIonization monitor, the DS2 Docking StationTM is an instrument and data management system that performs a specified regimen of test, calibration, battery charging and record-keeping functions, offering cost savings, convenience, and worry-free reliability.

Originally developed in 1999, Industrial Scientific's Docking StationTM instrument management system is a pivotal concept that has revolutionized the industry, proving there are better ways to own and maintain gas detection monitors. The DS2 Docking StationTM leapfrogs the current market offerings, by featuring automated instrument maintenance and diagnostics for up to 100 gas monitors simultaneously with one central computer server. LAN-compatible database software supports an unlimited number of instruments, allowing centralization of calibration records, gas exposure data and customized instrument instructions in one master database.

Using Ethernet or wireless communication to connect to the Docking Station Server, each Instrument Docking Station is a stand-alone client satellite without the need for direct PC-connectivity, allowing autonomous plant-wide placement and greatly reducing cost of maintenance and operation. Each Instrument Docking Station (IDS) has a multi-lingual liquid crystal display (LCD), status LED lights, and audible alarm to prompt user action if necessary. Up to five IDS units can be grouped together to share calibration gas cylinders for additional cost savings.

The DS2 Docking StationTM is the ultimate product for managing gas detection equipment, whether it is for a fleet of monitors in multiple operations, or a few instruments in one location. The DS2 Docking Station minimizes customer time required to manage post-purchase responsibilities and reduces liabilities associated with instrument maintenance and record-keeping.

Industrial Scientific Corporation is a leading designer, manufacturer and marketer of gas monitoring instruments, systems and other technical products for the preservation of life and property. The company has headquarters in Oakdale, Pa. and 28 regional offices throughout the world. For more information on Industrial Scientific, call 1-800-DETECTS (338-3287), or log onto www.indsci.com
