In response to requests from its customers, Booyco Electronics has incorporated new features into its innovative Sentient handheld environmental sensing instrument (ESI), effectively creating a cost effective, sophisticated and low maintenance gas detection device for the mining industry. This hi-tech device has been developed specifically to boost safety in underground mining and in any confined spaces in surface plants.
This locally designed and manufactured instrument is now the first multi-gas instrument in South Africa that also measures relative humidity as a standard offering. In addition, the Sentient is able to record specific gas values when inserted into a fire patrol outstation installed in a specific area of the underground environment. The identity of the outstation is linked to the instrument after every shift, when information is downloaded as the Sentient rests in its charger, effectively generating a fire patrol report. The downloading network configuration is capable of gathering information from up to 500 Sentient units placed in their chargers, in a matter of minutes. All this equipment is connected via a network to the Sentient downloading server, where specialised software allows various reports to be generated, such as detailed information on gas detected in the underground environment, peak values, TWA values, pre-shift tested values, calibration reports and no movement reports.
