Aithre Altus Portable Oxygen Tank Smart Monitor
For those who spend any time at higher altitudes, making sure you have enough oxygen on board to operate safely can be a lifesaving security measure. This portable tank monitor takes any doubt or guesswork out of the process by making it clear how much oxygen you have remaining in your tank. Once attached to an oxygen tank, the Altus provides key data, such as pressure readings every six seconds, flow rate and time remaining, among others, directly to a user’s iPhone or iPad. The accompanying app also delivers warnings via pop-ups and Siri messages any time the tank’s contents dip below FAA requirements.
The product comes with a velcro strap that allows it to adhere securely to an oxygen tank, as well as a 1/8-inch port T-fitting expansion. The Altus comes with a price tag of $350.Learn more at pilotmall.com.
