GMI’s PS200 Series receives KOSHA Certification

GMI, an IST company, is pleased to announce that the PS200 Series portable gas detector, has received the Korea Occupational Safety & Health Agency (KOSHA) Certificate  of Compliance.

The KOSHA certification is an important step for GMI and its Korean distributor BI Industrial, to penetrate the Korean market and provide the necessary leverage for selling the PS200 Series.

The PS200 Series is a small, yet extremely robust four gas detector, with single button pump/diffusion feature, that simultaneously monitors flammable, oxygen, hydrogen sulphide and carbon monoxide, in a variety of confined space and industrial applications.  The large, easy to read display, includes a built-in backlight that ensures easy viewing of gas concentration levels and other vital data.  An extra loud alarm, flashing LED indicators and vibration alarm, alerts the user to hazardous conditions.

To complement the PS200, an Auto Bump & Calibration station is also available, ensuring worker safety, corporate compliance, instrument accuracy and record keeping.  The bump test and calibration station is available in standalone, PC and networked versions.

Uu Su Haw, GMI’s Territory Manager for Korea, says ‘we are delighted that the PS200 Series has received the KOSHA stamp of approval.  It is essential to GMI and our customers, that we not only support our products from a quality perspective, but also from a safety standpoint.  I am confident that this will further enhance sales of the PS200 Series within the Korean market.’
