Preserving Gas Detectors with the DSX™ Docking Station

The DSX™ Docking Station can maintain the gas detectors that are at the core of any robust gas safety regime. The docking station offers three different modes that can cater for a wide range of user needs, with each of the three modes offering an out-of-the-box solution. These are:

DSX Standalone

When working in standalone mode, the DSX™ Docking Station does not need a network configuration or PC. It is ready to be used straight away, and this mode can offer the following key benefits:

  • An easy, intuitive bump testing process and calibration of devices on the dock makes the device extremely simple to use.
  • Automatic record keeping is possible using direct USB data storage. This not only eliminates concerns about storage space, but also reduces risks of losing vital compliance data.
  • Bump and calibration certificates can be printed automatically using a direct connect printer, providing hardcopy printouts for hot work and confined space entry.
  • Automatic device wake-up and battery charging features help improve productivity.
  • The device facilitates auto detection of calibration gas type and expiration date upon cylinder connection.
  • With the use of a DSXi activation key, the DSX Standalone can be converted to a cloud-connected, fully automated device maintenance station. Doing this would mean that there is no need to send anything back for activation - all upgrades can then be performed in the field with ease.

DSXi Cloud-Connected

While working in cloud-connected mode, the DSX™ Docking Station can deliver a reliable, automated record storage, maintenance and fleet management solution that is appropriate for an array of diverse settings. Its key features include:

  • The capability for bump test and calibration schedules to be tracked and performed automatically, allowing devices to be ready for use before the start of a shift.
  • Cloud-based data storage delivers peace of mind, at all times by allowing for automatic file back-up and easy recovery should there be an incident of unforeseen data loss.
  • Users can effortlessly manage fleet, data and software updates from any web-enabled device.
  • Email alerts and warnings deliver information on potential worker exposure and device usage, as well as information on essential device maintenance requirements.
  • The optional auto calibration gas replenishment program provides an effective means of managing calibration gas usage and needs. New cylinders are sent to the user on demand.

DSX-L Local Server

Using the DSX™ Docking Station in local server mode gives users the option of automatically storing data from all connected docking stations behind a secure, corporate firewall. This allows network and data storage restrictions to be managed according to the users’ preferences. Using the DSX™ in this way enables these features:

  • Bump test and calibration schedules can be tracked and performed automatically, ensuring that devices are ready for use at the start of every shift.
  • Automatic device wake-up and battery charging also help to improve efficiency.
  • Company and application specific device settings can be acquired and applied to devices from within the company network.
  • Reporting can be configured to provide the data that users need, when they need it.
  • Calibration gas status indicators can provide warnings notifying workers of the need to order replacement gas before a cylinder becomes empty, thus reducing potential down time.
