ChemDAQ Announces New SafeCide™ 2.1 Software

Software upgrade available to all SafeCide customers, providing enhanced functionality 

(July 24, 2023) PITTSBURGH, PA - ChemDAQ today unveiled the latest version of software for its SafeCide portable monitoring system to make it easier for safety personnel to detect and monitor for Peracetic Acid (PAA) and Hydrogen Peroxide (H₂O₂) gas vapors within numerous industries.

The software upgrade adds additional functionality, including: 

  • User Credentialed login for uploading to the Cloud or Guest login (doesn’t require wifi)

  • Sensor auto reconnects after distance or power disconnection 

  • Low battery notifications

  • Sensor calibration information

  • Dashboard setup enhancements 

“It's an exciting day for all of our SafeCide customers,” said David Hilliker, President & CEO at ChemDAQ. “We are constantly striving to enhance our products, and that’s exactly what you will find with the latest SafeCide 2.1 software.”

Software Enhancements to Improve User Experience 

Within SafeCide 2.1, users will find that their devices automatically reconnect with their gas sensors in the field, and they can now add locations and comments to customize their device based on business needs. 

Among other enhancements, SafeCide 2.1 allows multiple users to access data–with or without WiFi–in an attempt to place important instantaneous readings in the hands of as many key safety personnel as possible. 

Companies will also now experience sensor exchange reminders as a part of ChemDAQ’s industry-leading Sensor Exchange Program (SXP) . These color-indicated notifications will allow users to know when their sensor is approaching the need for calibration and alert if and when calibration is required. 

The SafeCide 2.1 software replaces the 2.0 version, which has been in the market for several years. Upgrades and new features were largely informed by customer feedback. 

“When our customers make the important choice to monitor, it’s our job to give them the latest tools, equipment and software they need to do it easily and effectively to keep their workers safe,” said Alex Hilliker, Chief Operating Officer at ChemDAQ. “We’re grateful for the many partnerships that helped inform these enhancements and look forward to offering all customers this latest technology.”
