    • Keep your Lone Workers Protected 24/7 with Sonim Protect®

      Mar 10, 2014

      Ensure the safety and peace of mind of your employees with the Ultra Rugged & Intrinsically safe Sonim phones exclusively being monitored with Sonim Protect Pro. On a daily basis, workers come in contact with water, dust, micro-particles, and oil/chemicals, all which can severely damage and break a phone. Completely unaware, workers could be on duty and be oblivious to the fact that their phone has been ruined, therefore restricting them from mobile contact to co-workers and management. This could lead to more dangerous and life-threatening situations if there is no connection to an emergency contact. The Sonim Protect pro state of the art monitoring system will enable you to track the safety of your lone workers 24/7. In the event of an emergency Sonim Protect will connect your workers automatically with the International Emergency Response and Coordination Center (IERCC). The Sonim phones will detect and reports falls, impacts, extended lack of movement or loss of vertical position which will automatically raise a red alert. In the case of the worker unable to press the green button to cancel the alarm the IERCC will obtain the workers GPS coordinates, attempt to contact the guardian/employee and if they cannot get a response an Emergency Response Team will be immediately deployed. In today’s working industries employers must now abide by strict and specific working alone law (OHS CODE PART 280). Sonim Protect now provides a solution built to help rugged industries meet these safety and regulations. Red Alarm Button • Press only in emergencies to send a GPS location and automatically call the emergency response centre • Updates on the position of the phone are set every few minutes until help arrives • This function works even when the phone is locked • Advanced 3 axis accelerometer man down feature detects accidents involving free fall, impacted or non movement Yellow Button • Press when entering a risky situation • Requests enhanced monitoring and GPS tracking • Sends reminders to check-in regularly until the state is cancelled Green Button • Press this to cancel an existing alarm that was initiated by the red alarm button or Man-Down Detection Combined with Canada's best Push-to-talk(PTT) service offering the largest coverage in Canada. Sonim Protect offers an ideal lone worker and other multi layers of safety solutions for your business. Sonim Protect Pro Features Red Alarm Button • Sends a GPS location and automatically calls the emergency response centre for workers in distress Guardian Alert • Allows admin to define 2 designated persons to receive text or email alerts with workers location (includes Google Maps link) Rescue!®+ Membership • Canadian rescue services in mobile service coverage areas. • Covers up to US$30,000 in additional search and rescue expenses per subscriber in any 12 month period • Valid within mobile coverage areas in Canada Enhanced Monitoring Station • Web portal monitors all events (location, situation) • Yellow button initiates enhanced monitoring state • User is required to proactively check-in at defined intervals (5, 10, 15 30 mins, 1 hour, 2 hours) Man-Down Detection • Detects falls, impacts, extended lack of movement or loss of vertical position • Raises Red Alarm – even if the worker can’t press any buttons • Alerts International Emergency Response and Coordination Centre (IERCC) and sends GPS location • Automatically puts user on speaker phone call with International Emergency Response and Coordination Centre (IERCC) • Field proven to detect risk events while minimizing false alarms Geofencing • Define up to 10 geofences per user • Set specified safety zones • Notifies when a user enters or leaves a specified safety zone To learn more about Micro-Watt’s Sonim Phones, Accessories and Sonim Protect call our friendly support team at 1-888-388-1592 or email us at mwsales@microwatt.com.

    • CONTROL Magazine Report about Net Safety's GDU-Incus: GDU-Incus Hears Tiny Gas Leaks in Big Areas - Emerson Exchange News

      Oct 24, 2013

      by Jim Montague Sometimes sound is better than sight—just ask any bug-hunting bat, submarine sonar operator or air-traffic controller. They all know that seeing requires a narrowly focused visual field, while hearing can take in audio data from a wide radius all around. One example of this capability on display at this week's Emerson Global Users Exchange is Emerson Process Management’s new Incus ultrasonic gas leak detector, which can provide immediate warnings of toxic, asphyxiating or combustible gas leaks and other conditions, and greatly improve on the limited performance and scope of optic-beam, infrared and other traditional sensing methods. Instead, Incus detects the sound generated by high-pressure gas releases over as much as a 40-meter radius. Most importantly, Incus’ immediate detection and alerts can give on-site staff time to put on masks and perform other safety measures. Factory-calibrated for life with sensors that never expire, Incus is intrinsically safe (IS) and explosion proof. Emerson reported that Incus isn’t designed to replace point-detection and other traditional sensors, but to help supplement them. The unit already has had success in Europe and some Asia/Pacific markets, and is now being launched in North America. This environmental sensing and monitoring system is just three years old, but it’s based on acoustic detection principles that have been evolving and refined for 15 years. Early versions of Incus were built by Grovely Detection and Net Safety Monitoring, which was acquired by Emerson about two years ago. “Because oil and gas applications in the North Sea must report all hydrocarbon releases on offshore platforms, engineers began trying to use microphones to find leaks in 1998,” says Dr. Eliot Sizeland, global sales and marketing director for Emerson’s ultrasonic gas leak detection line. “Research showed that a lot of releases weren’t being found or reported by traditional optic, catalytic or point-detection methods, and so developers began trying to plug that gap with audible and then ultrasonic technologies.” To detect leaks over such wide areas, Incus uses four, multidirectional, acoustic sensing heads, and its 4-20 mA signals are enabled by relays and HART protocol communications. It even uses an on-board, user-programmed microprocessor to help determine when a gas leak is identified. While it’s not self-determining, this microprocessor employs user-defined parameters to decide if a release has occurred. Users can also set up time delays, and use stepped-outputs of its 4-20 mA signals to arrange for alarms via its relay contacts. “We’re using piezoelectric resonance sensors on all four sensing heads, and they allow Incus to detect much smaller releases and lower leak sources, or respond to gas flows over much broader areas,” explained Sizeland. “Competing devices only use microphones with diaphragms, which move and respond to temperature changes, and so they must be repeatedly calibrated. So, for the same size release, Incus achieves four to five times greater area coverage.” Article Link: http://community.emerson.com/process/emerson-exchange/b/weblog/archive/2013/10/01/incus-hears-tiny-gas-leaks-in-big-areas.aspx
