  • Patent number: 11080992
    Abstract: Embodiments relate generally to gas detector connectivity devices, for example a dongle, to allow for continuous communication of real-time data between a gas detector and a central station. Dongle embodiments typically comprise an IR transceiver, a processor, a wireless interface device, a power source, and a means of attachment. Such dongle embodiments, and their related methods of operation, may allow for retrofitting of legacy gas detectors to provide wireless capabilities.
    Type: Grant

  • Publication number: 20200355659
    Abstract: Embodiments relate generally to a gas detector test fixture (102) that recycles test gas, which can then be reused. A portable gas detector test fixture (102), comprises a test chamber (104), a processor (134), a docking connector (132) communicatively coupled to the processor (134), an output device (138) communicatively coupled to the processor (134), a memory (136) communicatively coupled to the processor (134), and an application (137) stored in the memory (136) that, when executed by the processor (134), is configured to conduct a bump test on a portable gas detector (106) plugged into the docking connector (132) and to output the bump test result to the output device (138).

  • Publication number: 20190311599
    Abstract: Embodiments relate generally to systems and methods for gas detection. A method may comprise operating a gas detector (102) with a first alarm setting comprising a first predefined threshold; receiving sensed data of oxygen content in the ambient air; when the sensed data is below the first predefined threshold, activating an alarm (110); generating an acknowledgement request asking if the gas detector has entered an inert work zone (122); receiving a response from the user acknowledging that the gas detector has entered an inert work zone; deactivating the alarm; changing the alarm settings of the gas detector to a second alarm setting comprising a second predefined threshold; continuing to receive sensed data of oxygen content in the ambient air; when the sensed data is above the second predefined threshold, activating an alarm; and generating an acknowledgement request for the user asking if the gas detector has entered a normal operation work zone (120).
