Honeywell IQ-Force Multi Gas Detector Used by Worker with WalkieTalkie Radio

The Honeywell IQ Force multi-gas detector displays real time readings for up to 4 gases including oxygen (O2), combustible gases (%LEL), hydrogen sulfide (H2S) and carbon monoxide (CO). Add an optional pump, docking station and software to provide a more comprehensive IQ Management System solution. IP65/67 water proof rating.

Built in event logger capable of storing information for 200 events including sensor type, max and average readings, time and duration. Li-Ion battery packs have a run time up to 22 hours or 14 hours with motorized pump..

Reduce calibration gas use by up to 60% and labor expenses by cutting down on the time needed to perform calibrations. The IQ Force Dock™ is a fully automated bump test, calibration, meter diagnostics and data download center which also provides automatic record keeping..

For remote use, both manual and motorized sample draw systems are available. The IQ Force is loaded with features that are critical for working safely in confined spaces.

    IQ Force ™ Bump Test, Calibration & Data Download Station

IQ Force Bump Test/Calibration Station

IQ Force Bump Test/Calibration Station

Take Command of Instrument Testing & Data

Reduce your calibration gas use by up to 60% and your labor expenses by cutting down on the time needed to perform calibrations. Downtime is reduced as auto calibration is finished in two minutes versus 3-5 minutes and bump testing takes 22 seconds versus approximately two minutes per instrument when completed manually. Through the networkable dock and system software, you obtain full visibility to information on detector performance. compliance and trending including:

  •  Alarms
  •  Gas exposure levels
  •  Safety incident history
  •  Sensor health status
  •  Calibration and bump test results
  •  Cal gas consumption
  •  Battery usage
  •  Dock station data
  •  Full alarm function testing (audio, visual, vibration)
  •  Security settings
  •  And other instrument details
