Personal Safety Monitor (PSM) Hero

Advanced technology at your fingertips

PSM Hero is the first safety monitor that combines real-time communication, early gas detection and resilient location sensing into one hand-held device.  This communication and safety tool is worn on the worker, serving as the ultimate safeguard for multiple risks simultaneously to ensure they are protected regardless of job, location, industry or working conditions.  

Other features include recognition of man down events, atmospheric and ambient data, geofencing alerts, Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) connectivity and multiple operating languages. Further business compatibility is realised through pairing additional BLE devices, customising the tool to fit business requirements using a single system, including reporting in real-time to the control room or multiple users.

These devices are available in PSM Hero 715 Intrinsically safe (Patented) and PSM Hero 825 regular models/variations, with configurable features and functions to suit your business needs, you have the most advanced safety device on the market at your fingertips.
