With ATEX Performance Certification, users can ensure the highest level of safety for users working in environments with potentially explosive atmospheres.

Industrial Scientific, a global leader and innovator in full-service gas detection programs that automate safety workflows, has secured ATEX Performance Certification for its Ventis® Pro5 personal gas monitor.

The Ventis Pro5 is the most flexible connected gas monitor on the market, giving users the power to protect workers from up to five gases, manage worker safety from remote locations, automatically share real-time gas readings and alarms, and simplify team communication to take the guesswork out of gas detection.

With the addition of ATEX Performance Certification, facilities can ensure unmatched safety, reliability, and compliance for their workers operating in environments with potentially explosive atmospheres.

In Germany, the Ventis Pro5 will now be listed as an approved device by the BGRCI. This means that Ventis Pro5 will be part of a list of detectors recommended for use by German industry. ATEX performance certification is an accreditation that only a few instruments globally achieve. When a gas detector is subjected to the extensive testing requirements of ATEX Performance and passes, it is a statement that the instrument has been designed to withstand being used in the most difficult and hazardous environments - while still ensuring accurate measurements are made.

“Now that Industrial Scientific has secured ATEX Performance Certification, we can deliver this world-class connected solution to even more customers, enabling them to protect their workers from some of the world’s most hazardous environments,” says Gavin Boorman, managing director and general manager, Industrial Scientific EMEA. “This additional certification brings us one step closer to achieving Our Mission of ending death on the job by 2050, and we could not be more excited to offer this additional capability to our customers.”
