Often in large, industrial facilities with multiple safety showers, finding the triggered shower and getting help there in time can be a daunting task. Wired solutions try to provide support for safety shower and eye-wash stations, but often the injured employee cannot move once the safety shower or eye-wash is triggered or no one is monitoring the triggered safety equipment at the critical time. Plus, wired monitoring means running wires to the switches in the field – lots of wires and switches through treacherous areas escalates the implementation costs to sometimes as much as $4,000 per point. With wireless, the cost of running the field wiring is completely eliminated, providing a 75% cost-savings using wireless sensors compared to hardwire.
The ION Safety Shower and Eye Wash Solution utilizes wireless sensors with the ION Wireless Condition Monitoring Application to monitor all shower and eye-switches in real-time and the ION Wireless Video Application provides alerts, alarms and continuous video monitoring to control room personnel. When the shower or eye wash starts, a switch activates the wireless sensor attached to the shower sending the alert to managers for immediate help. The ION Wireless Safety Shower and Eye Wash Solution provides a cost-effective, real-time solution that greatly increases the safety of all your field personnel. If someone in the field comes into contact with hazardous materials, critical, first-line emergency treatment is immediate.
