ALTAIR io™ Dock

The io 4 Dock enables effortless calibration and bump testing which helps to improve compliance and safety. When in the io Dock, the Altair io 4 portable gas detector knows when it needs a bump test and immediately runs the appropriate test. When the ALTAIR io 4 is in the Dock, all compliance reporting is sent immediately to your MSA Grid account, helping to minimize the risks associated with manual record keeping or data file management.

  • Standard Bump Test Time: max. 40 seconds
  • Standard Calibration Time: approx. 150 seconds
Test Modes:
  • Smart: Dock will perform a bump test or calibration as required by the Grid-configured gas detector settings without user intervention. This mode allows for hands-off, intuitive operation of the Dock to help ensure device compliance. The device will perform a bump test or calibration when the Grid-configured bump test or calibration interval has elapsed.
  • Bump Test Only: Dock will always perform a bump test on the inserted device, regardless of whether it needs a bump test or not. In this mode, a calibration will never be performed.
  • Calibration Only: Dock will always perform a calibration on the inserted device, regardless of whether it needs a calibration or not. In this mode, a bump test will never be performed.
  • Bump Test / Calibration on Bump Test Fail: Dock will first perform a bump test. If the bump test fails, it will then proceed to perform a calibration. Note that if a calibration is due on the device, it will skip the bump test and proceed directly to calibration.
Options
  • The ALTAIR io Charge can charge up to five io 4 wearable detectors and has the same size profile as the io Dock test stand. It will also de-assign the detectors when they are placed back into the charger.
