CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - April 17, 2013) - It is well-known to Canadian industries that operating battery-powered electronics in extreme cold weather conditions can reduce the effective battery life by over half. In response to this challenge, Blackline ("Blackline") (TSX VENTURE:BLN) has launched the new Loner IS Arctic that will endure Arctic temperatures while monitoring the safety of employees.
"We designed the original Loner IS product for demanding industrial environments," said Barry Moore, Blackline's VP Product Development. "Our Oil & Gas customers requested longer battery life while operating in even harsher, cold temperature conditions. We responded with the new Loner IS Arctic that provides up to 15 hours of continuous run-time at 20 degrees below zero and up to 25 hours operation at room temperature."
Loner IS Arctic features the same industry-leading employee safety monitoring features as the current Loner IS product, including True Fall Detection®, man-down detection and emergency alerting. As with Loner IS, the new Loner IS Artic is certified Intrinsically Safe for use within hazardous environments, meeting Class I, Division 1, Groups A, B, C, and D plus Class II, Division 1, Groups E, F, and G requirements.
Blackline empowers corporations to pin-point precisely where an employee may be facing a health incident, injury or physical threat through real-time safety monitoring instrumentation, smartphones, and web applications. For more information visit: www.blacklinesafety.com/solutions/loner-is-arctic.
