P100 Personal Gas Monitor

Porticos turned a hand-written list of product-attributes into a remarkably compact and cost-effective product that looked like a smaller sibling of Sensit’s other products.  With little to start with, Porticos developed an excellent product, made in the USA, that is still going strong!

  • Injection Molding
  • Insert Molding
  • Overmolding
  • Appearance Design
  • Concept Generation
  • Electronics Packaging
  • Wearable Electronics
  • Impact Resistance
  • Acoustics
  • Visual Alarm
  • Haptic Alert
  • Custom display

Porticos Contribution

Management at Sensit had a vision for a body-warn gas alarm; something that would alert the wearer about dangerous concentrations of harmful gases.  Almost nothing was defined, so our engineers defined it. We recommended that the alarm be simultaneous flashing, loud noise, and vibration. Further, we recommended that the device accommodate replaceable batteries and be proof against serious abuse, like immersion and impact.

Then we proposed a novel, manufacturable and cost-effective way to achieve those things.

Less than four months later, the owner threw a beautiful working prototype off the roof of the factory to evaluate how tough it was.  Intact and fully functional (if a bit scuffed) that prototype illustrated that the design was sound and that Porticos had, once again, exceeded expectations.  We’ve been pleased to see that product continue to sell as a flagship product for more than a decade.
