Frost & Sullivan New Product Innovation Award: ALTAIR io™ 4 Gas Detection Wearable Recognized

The ALTAIR io 4 from MSA was recently named the 2023 recipient of the Frost & Sullivan New Product Innovation Award in the global gas detection industry.

Frost & Sullivan is a leading benchmark organization across various global industries that independently analyzes companies and products to recognize achievements and performance in leadership, technological innovation, customer service, and strategic product development.

According to Frost & Sullivan, MSA received this award because of the multi-faceted solution delivered across ALTAIR io, Grid and MSA+ encapsulated in the MSA Connected Work Platform, saying:

The ALTAIR io™ 4 is not just a gas detector, as it comes with access to MSA+ which offers a comprehensive subscription program, including hardware, software and additional services. It gives the user access to powerful cloud-based solutions enabling faster safety implementation, offers increased warranty coverage, and is equipped with automatic software and firmware upgrades… The device’s capacity for connection, along with the MSA grid software, provides insights and visibility into end-user organizations, granting managers a monitoring solution that connects workers, worksites, and workflows. Frost & Sullivan thus concludes that MSA’s gas detector, integrated with the MSA+ platform, offers a better price/performance value than any of its existing competitors since it offers a superior product design, unmatched connectivity features, and auto-calibration accessories.
