The GasBadge line of personal and dockable single gas monitors includes a new “bump” test feature. The bump-test feature is designed to increase safety by encouraging and facilitating more frequent “bump” tests. It allows users to establish a testing frequency based on best practices, company policy or local regulatory agencies.

An indication also remains on the unit’s display screen until the test is completed.
