Portable Gas Detector (Safety)

ALTAIR 4X Multigas Detector

The ALTAIR 4X is an extremely durable Multigas Detector that simultaneously measures up to four gases from a wide range of XCell(R) sensor options including combustible gases, O₂, CO, H₂S, SO₂, and NO₂. The ALTAIR 4X Detector surpasses industry standards in several crucial areas. Dependable multigas detector tests for LEL, oxygen, carbon monoxide, hydrogen sulfide, sulfur dioxide, and nitrogen dioxide.
  Economical construction saves users more than 50% on calibration gas, replacement sensors and maintenance.
  Four-year sensor life means detector lasts 60% longer than the industry average.
   The unit uses 50% less calibration gas per minute than the average detectors within the industry.
  Two-tox CO/H2S sensor removes practically all cross-channel interference
  Large buttons and high-contrast screen make operation easy in low-light conditions
  Ribbed rubber housing provides secure grip and high durability Unit features 95+ dB alarm and ultra-bright LEDs
  Exclusive end-of-sensor warning cautions user when unit's sensor needs to be changed
  MotionAlert option tells others that user has become immobile
  InstantAlert provides manual alarm to alert others of a dangerous situation

ALTAIR 5X Multigas Detector

The ALTAIR 5X Gas Detector is capable of measuring up to 6 gases simultaneously and is now available with integrated PID sensor for VOC detection. Driven by advanced MSA XCell® Sensor Technology,  the ALTAIR 5X Gas Detector delivers  faster response time, better stability, accuracy, longer service life, and cost savings over the life of the instrument.
  Detects combustible gases in LEL and/or volume percentage range, oxygen, carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, hydrogen sulfide, sulfur  dioxide, ammonia, chlorine, VOCs,  and many others depending upon sensor configuration.
  Rugged over molded polycarbonate housing provides unsurpassed durability, including ability to survive 10-ft. (3m) drop; IP65-certified.
  Field-proven integral pump provides consistent gas flow, eliminating concerns of externally-attached components.
  High performance XCell Sensors last longer:
  Typical life greater than 4 years for combustible, O2, CO/H2S, SO2, CO/NO2 and CO sensors.
  Typical life greater than 3 years for NH3 and Cl2 sensors.
  Most sensor response and clear times <15 seconds.
  Less calibration gas used:
  Requires about half of test gas typically used for calibration and bump tests.
  Requires about half of test gas typically used for calibration and bump tests.
  Span calibration time of 60 seconds for most common sensor configurations.
  MotionAlert feature option tells others that user has become immobile.
  InstantAlert feature provides manual alarm to alert others as to a potentially hazardous situation.
  PID option allows for accurate, reliable VOC response with programmable reference factors.
  Large buttons and bright display provide easy operation, even when users wear gloves.
  Exclusive end-of-sensor warning cautions users when unit's sensor nears end-of-life
  Versatile MSA Link™ Software allows users to transmit data to a computer.
  Compatible with GALAXY® GX2 Test System and MSA Link Pro Software for fleet management.
  Wireless Bluetooth included standard.
