The RGX™ Gateway has been developed by Industrial Scientific in response to industry demand for a gas detection system that not only detects danger but analyses, identifies and solves any breach of safety. Using the Radius® BZ1 Area Monitor, RGX™ Gateway, and iNet® Now cloud-based software, real-time remote live area monitoring can easily and effectively be set up within minutes.
Ideal for Confined Spaces
The RGX™ Gateway is invaluable for operatives working within hazardous conditions or in confined spaces, benefiting anyone involved with gas and oil, chemical, mining and other industries that operate within hazardous conditions. One of the most beneficial attributes is its live monitoring ability in challenging environments, for instance, underground or in tight spaces or remote locations or where typical wireless connection is weak or subject to interruption. In addition, the RGX™ Gateway provides the ideal solution to temporary or short-term projects due to the ease of application and use.
“Because the RGX™ Gateway service is compatible with all safety legislation, it can be installed and used immediately, ensuring the safety of any employee in any location,” comments Stefan Scheiper, Regional and Application Manager at Industrial Scientific. “In terms of cost, time and safety compliance, this is an invaluable service to business owners.”
A rechargeable 168-hour (7 day) run-time battery means the RGX™ Gateway can confidently be employed over a longer range, up to 100 meters away from the Gateway, ideal for monitoring operatives working in confined or remote spaces. It is also compatible with a variety of external power supplies, allowing it to run indefinitely.

Peer-to-peer monitoring is provided by LENS™ Wireless, available in the Radius® BZ1, which enables the attendant stationed outside the spaces to view the atmospheric readings from each confined space. If gas levels inside the space become hazardous, the Radius® BZ1 will immediately alarm, causing the monitor stationed with the attendant to also alarm and display the gas level and location, calling the attendant to action. By design, the Radius® BZ1 will automatically communicate wirelessly with other Radius® BZ1 monitors, which creates a peer group sharing peer alarms and real-time gas readings across the group of networked area monitors.
LENS™ Wireless allows the attendant to monitor operatives using personal monitors. If an operative is endangered in any way, such as by a gas hazard, a message will be instantly relayed to the Radius BZ1 and directly to the RGX™ Gateway. This data is then passed via wireless access to iNet® Now cloud-based software, where users can monitor the confined space in real time.
All readings and gas alerts will be displayed on the iNet® Now dashboard as well as GPS coordinates to the exact location. The alert subscription consists of adding email addresses and phone numbers of the people who should be notified when an alarm event occurs. GPS coordinates are provided so anyone who is set up to receive real-time alerts to pinpoint the alarm location immediately without logging in to the software.
Flexibility and Portability
Up to 24 operators can be linked to the Gateway at one time and because it is so flexible and portable, it can be used in environments in which existing safety monitoring systems cannot operate. In addition, the RGX Gateway can either be purchased outright or leased, saving costs. There are no maintenance costs or specialist software requirements.
The RGX™ Gateway is a long-term, cost-efficient solution to risk management. It is a comprehensive service, allowing clients to isolate and predict hazardous situations, immediately pinpoint safety issues and the operative involved, and offer immediate solutions to the problem. The RGX™ Gateway is the only service that collects and presents data as a solution to prevent future issues.
