What is Real-time Area Monitoring?
Area monitors are commonly used to measure toxic or explosive gases, like H2S or methane, in designated locations around a plant, pipeline, or refinery. Real-time area monitoring allows you to view gas hazards and alarm data in real-time, usually on a software dashboard.
Real-time area monitoring provides safety managers and industrial hygienists with data points needed to react quickly and make informed decisions when gas concentrations in monitored areas reach dangerous levels. While the use cases are virtually endless, many use real-time area monitoring in the following applications:
- Perimeters and Fence Lines
- Confined Spaces
- Emergency Response
- Exposure Monitoring
In addition to viewing the data in real-time on a dashboard, most solutions offer an alert or notification system in the event of a high or low alarm.
