The ultimate DS400 GfG Docking Station for instrument maintenance for GfG’s G450 and G460 gas detectors.

The operation of the DS400 docking station couldn’t be any easier. Simply put the G450 or G460 in the dock and the system will take over. The DS400 automatically performs a full functional test including a fresh air calibration, bump test, extensive sensor tests, alarm tests and optionally performs an automatic AutoCal calibration. The DS400 is designed to go beyond the traditional basic docking station test and includes sensor diagnostics tests such as T50 and T90. After all, what good is a sensor that can respond to gas when it takes too long to get there? With the DS400 you can have confidence with this added level of safety.

After all tests have been completed the DS400 will automatically start the charging process of the detector or you may remove and begin using it. In case the detector’s battery condition is insufficient to complete a test the DS400 will charge the instrument before performing each test.

A good instrument gas detection maintenance program is not complete without equally good records keeping. Whether you choose to download or maintain the records on a PC or network or your preference is to leave it to the docking station, the DS400 is the right choice. The DS400 can retain as many as 2 million complete diagnostics in memory with maximum memory installed. That is over 50 years of data even if testing 100 detectors every single day.

The DS400 is designed to reduce the cost of ownership every step of the way. The built in pump has variable flow control to reduce the amount of gas consumed during the test. The DS400 is even smart enough to take advantage of the gas remaining in the tubing after the previous test was completed.

The DS400 software includes a module to quickly print official calibration or bump test certificate. simply download the records from the DS400 and start the Certificate Generator.
