Blackline EXO - Long Term Area Monitor w/ Connected Safety Features
Area monitoring and gas detection that seamlessly connects your site and teams.
When it comes to the world of connected gas detection and safety wearables, we’ve already raised the bar. Now we’ve set our sights on disrupting another market — area gas monitoring.
The world’s first direct-to-cloud area monitor that delivers ultimate visibility into your entire facility and workforce. With integrated 4G and optional satellite connectivity, G7 EXO automatically links to the Blackline Safety Cloud where it can integrate and work alongside employee-worn G7 devices. Streaming critical insights that create a more engaged, safer workplace across all levels and locations of your business, G7 EXO is intelligence and versatility wrapped into one game-changing solution
Next-gen area monitoring and peace of mind.
Gone are the days of area monitoring systems that fail to connect to each other and the rest of your safety system in a reliable and robust fashion. Leveraging integrated connectivity, all you have to do is turn G7 EXO on and it goes to work for you streaming environmental data to the Blackline Safety Cloud. EXO delivers comprehensive, robust area monitoring as part of a larger connected ecosystem in a single, easy-to-use platform.
No more troubleshooting mesh or Wi-Fi networks that try to connect personnel to area monitors. No range or device limitations between area monitors and person-worn units.
In-the-know with cloud-connected insights.
Powering automated data collection and two-way communication, with G7 EXO, you have the full picture of where your area monitors are deployed, their real-time status and which team members are working in the area. Advanced analytics capabilities summarize your data so you can address employee safety hazards or facility maintenance risks before they become a problem.
Area monitoring has never been more straightforward or considerate of your needs
All brains. All brawn.
Until now, conventional area monitors have suffered short battery life, limited configurability and complicated or inadequate connectivity while also being challenging to configure into a seamless network. G7 EXO boasts industry leading battery life of over 100 days while operating in standard diffusion mode with the option to run indefinitely using intrinsically safe battery accessories. Everything is supported by direct-to-cloud connectivity for simple deployment and worry-free operation.
You’ve never experienced an area monitor this easy to use and this hard to damage. With an aluminum body and exclusive, full-color interface, G7 EXO is designed to withstand the harshest conditions while still being simple to set up, operate and maintain. A loud alarm and bright lights communicate events with nearby personnel, while simultaneously pushing the alert through the Blackline Safety Cloud to an unlimited number of Blackline devices throughout your worksite.
We’re not done yet.
While G7 EXO is already the world’s definitive solution to area monitoring challenges, we are constantly working on expanding the EXO portfolio to address more specific needs. All add-on modules integrate seamlessly with G7 EXO for straightforward, future-proofed customization.
No more questions, just simple placement and hassle-free execution. On startup, G7 EXO’s start-up wizard communicates the status of its network connectivity, GPS/beacon signal and placement status to the Blackline Safety Cloud.
With a large, eight-color screen, G7 EXO clearly displays all the information users need to know. If the set-up isn’t quite right, it will let you know what to adjust and to simply run the start-up sequence again.
Unlike mesh or Wi-Fi networks, G7 EXO does not require any network configuration — at all. Since each G7 EXO connects directly to the Blackline Safety Cloud, there’s no need for industrial-grade smartphones, Wi-Fi connections or radio links to connect personnel and site monitors to the central cloud network
Connected. Beyond an area.
Featuring two output ports, G7 EXO can integrate with other equipment on your site into your comprehensive area and personnel monitoring system. Should gas levels reach a high threshold, it can activate vent fans, open or close gates in the event of an emergency, or sound an external siren to alert personnel within a zone.
During an emergency, G7 EXO delivers seamless communication of hazards or incidents. Simultaneously, the Blackline Live portal provides full visibility into your team members and sites, streamlining emergency response management.
G7 EXO delivers never-before-seen area monitoring control in a rugged, easy to use and deploy system. With the option to self-monitor or have Blackline’s Safety Operations Center do it for you, no call for help will never go unanswered.
