The new Crowcon I-Test bump testing and calibration station is designed to test and verify that Crowcon’s Gas-Pro portable gas detectors are in a compliant state.
There’s no need to turn the test gas on and off – a flow regulator automatically pulls in the correct amount and concentration of gas for each bump. The I-Test starts automatically as soon as a Gas-Pro detector is inserted without the need to press any buttons. The device then verifies that all gas sensors are responding to a known value of gas and that the filters are clear and good for use.
It also tests that audible and visual alarms are working and informs the operator if a gas cylinder is empty or has expired.
The accompanying I-Test Manager software tracks which Gas-Pro units need calibrating and allows storage, interrogation and convenient presentation of large amounts of bump testing data. Calibration certificates are automatically created and stored and many different types of reports and graphs can be created.
