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 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.
  • High performance XCell Sensors last longer:
    • Typical life greater than 4 years for combustible, O2, CO/H2S, SO2, CO/NO2 and CO (high concentration) 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.
    • Rapid bump test gives results in less than 10 seconds for most common sensor configurations.
    • 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.
