Entec is getting ready to launch a product to the New Zealand market which will markedly improve worker safety.
The product is the award-winning G7 gas detector by Blackline Safety and while Entec already supplies the G7 to NZ businesses, the latest G7 model is yet to hit NZ shores.
This model, the G7c introduces a push-to-talk (PTT) service which allows the device to operate like a two-way radio. Unlike radio, PTT does not require radio licensing or have a range limit. This will allow users to contact team mates immediately, on the same channel.
As the world’s first gas detector/lone worker monitor to feature PTT technology, the G7c will offer NZ businesses swift, simpler communication between workers, a feature which can only aid in improving overall worker safety.
“The new G7c from Blackline Safety really is a gamechanger”, says Entec General Manager, Bob Weston.
“It allows for quick, easy communication between workers and eliminates the need for workers to have to wear and charge multiple devices”.
“A lot of organisations may not equip each individual employee with two-way radios, instead opting for a simple lone work monitor or gas detector”, explains Weston.
“With the new G7c PTT technology, it solves the hurdle of buying and maintaining multiple devices, as it is essentially three products in one”.
The PTT technology on the G7c also includes an all-call channel, available for emergency broadcasts to each monitor on the network. This dedicated channel makes the device ideal for supervisors, as they can instantly communicate with all devices within the organisation at once.
The new blackline G7c will be available to NZ businesses from early 2019 and further information is available on Entec’s gas detection equipment website.
Entec is an Auckland-based supplier of safety instrumentation in the field of hazardous gas detection and lone worker monitoring.
