DSX Docking Station – Gas Detector Maintenance Station

DSX Docking StationWith DSX Docking Station you know the gas detectors keeping your people safe are ready for use every day without the burden of manual maintenance routines.

One Docking Station – 3 Modes

Choose the out-of-the-box solution that best fits your needs…

 

Standalone DSX docking station
The DSX Docking Station in standalone mode is a simple out-of-the-box gas detector maintenance station that requires no PC or network configuration.

  • Easy bump testing and calibration of instruments upon dock.
  • Automated record keeping with direct USB data storage eliminates concerns about storage space or losing compliance data.
  • Automatic printing of bump and calibration certificates (with direct connect printer) provides hardcopy printouts for hot work and confined space entry.
  • Automatic instrument wake-up and battery charging.
  • Auto detection of calibration gas type and expiration date upon cylinder connection.

DSXi activation keyWith the use of a DSXi activation key, the DSX Standalone becomes a cloud-connected, fully-automated instrument maintenance station. There is no need to send anything back for activation – easily perform all upgrades in the field.

 

DSXi In-the-cloud
The DSX Docking Station in cloud-connected mode is an automated maintenance, record storage, and fleet management solution.

  • Track and set bump test and calibration schedules to perform automatically, ensuring your instruments are ready for use at the start of each shift.
  • Cloud-based data storage provides peace of mind with automatic file back-up, and easy recovery in case of unexpected data loss.
  • Effortlessly manage your fleet, data, and software updates from any web-enabled device.
  • Email alerts and notifications provide information on worker exposure and instrument usage, as well as instrument service needs.
  • Stop worrying about calibration gas. The optional auto calibration gas replenishment program provides an efficient way to manage your calibration gas usage and needs. New cylinders will be shipped to you when you need them.

 

DSX-L local server
The DSX in local server mode provides the option to automatically store data from all docking stations behind a corporate network firewall, addressing network and data storage restrictions or preferences.

  • Track and set bump test and calibration schedules to perform automatically, ensuring your instruments are ready for use at the start of each shift.
  • Automatic instrument wake-up and battery charging.
  • Company and application specific instrument settings are easily set up from within the company network.
  • Configure reports to provide the data you want, when you want it.
  • Calibration gas status indicators provide warning to order replacement gas before a cylinder is empty.
