  • Ventis® Pro5

    Ventis® Pro5

    The Ventis Pro5 is the most flexible connected gas monitor on the market, giving you the power to protect workers from up to five gases, manage worker safety from remote locations, and simplify team communication to take the guesswork out of gas detection. It automatically shares real-time gas readings, man-down, and panic alarms between peers – meaning the entire team knows who is in danger and why. By sharing real-time data, workers can also maintain continuous communication without the need for additional infrastructure or devices. Visit us at AIHce booth #927 to learn more! 3
