RKI Instruments GX-6000 – 600 gases??

We received the following from RKI Instruments:

One of the many unique features that separates the GX-6000 from it’s competitive models is the PID sensor. With a PID sensor installed, the GX-6000 has a library of over 600 VOC compounds. The closest competitive unit has a library of only 190 VOC’s. No need to go through any complex procedures to add compounds to the GX-6000. With just a few button presses you can change to any one of the other 600 VOC’s and then be ready to monitor. No other configuration or calibrations are needed. Just choose and go.

With over 600 VOC’s to choose from, we’ve also added some tools to make it easier to find the VOC’s you’re looking for. Instead of scrolling through the entire list of 600, use the Recent menu which will store the previous 7 VOC’s used on the instrument. Or, use the User List menu, which stores 30 VOC’s of your choosing. Quick, convenient, and simple.

New Calibration Station for RKI Instruments GX-6000 Gas Monitor

RKI Instruments is now shipping the new SDM-6000 calibration station for the GX-6000.

Here are some details (pricing will be on the website soon)

Stand Alone Station
RKI’s new SDM-6000 is a versatile maintenance tool that automates the service of a GX-6000 portable gas monitor. This docking station can be used as a stand alone device for charging, calibration and bump testing, with all records stored automatically for future upload to a PC via SD card or connection with a USB cable depending on the mode of operation.

Modular Design
SDM-6000 calibration stations are modular by design and can easily connect to each other without the need for any tubes or cables. Up to 10 calibration stations can also be connected to one PC for automated charging, calibration, bump testing and archiving of data. All data collected from the PC Controlled software can also be centralized in one network location accessible by anyone with the PC Controlled software with access to the network location.

The SDM-6000 can be used in PC Controller operation where it is controlled by the PC Controller Program or in Standalone Operation (not connected to a computer) where all control is done at the master SDM-6000 and all data is transferred to the PC Controller program via an SD memory card.
