From the Manufacturer:
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.

Ideal for confined space applications, the MotionAlert feature, when enabled, activates a "man down" alarm if no motion is detected for 30 seconds. The InstantAlert feature allows users to manually activate an audible alarm to alert those around them to potentially dangerous situations.

MSA's new generation of miniature catalytic combustion sensors will reliably detect up to 100% LEL of combustible gases, including many solvents. MSA's high-performing electrochemical duo-tox hydrogen sulfide/carbon monoxide sensor allows for an additional sensor slot.

Many other toxic sensor choices are available, including ammonia, chlorine, hydrogen cyanide, phosphine, and sulfur dioxide. A lithium-ion rechargeable battery provides enough runtime to cover double shifts.


Features:

  • 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 overmolded 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
  • 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.
