When used in combination with the Dräger X-am® 5000, 5100 or 5600 gas detection instruments, the Dräger X-zone® 5500 can be used for the measurement of up to six gases and extends the portable gas detection technology. This state-of-the-art, comprehensive system has many applications for increased safety wherever gas hazards are expected. Up to 25 Drager X-Zone 5500 can be automatically interconnected to form a wireless fenceline. The interconnnection of the area monitoring devices allows for rapid establishment of safety netwroks for larger areas. The Dräger X-zone® 5500 with 3D communications simply enables the data from a Dräger X-zone® 5500 unit to be transmitted via radio signal to PC-based workstation up to 3 miles away. This distance can be easily extended by using strategically located radio signal repeaters. The data can then be transferred from the workstation to other PCs in a netwroiok, through cloud based technology, and can even be sent to a cellphone using SMS (text message).
