Portable Gas Detector - It’s What’s Inside that Counts  

Jun 26 2011

MSA (Germany)  is proud to present the Altair 5X multi-gas detector with MSA XCell Sensor Technology.

The Altair 5X can measure up to six gases simultaneously and can be fitted with a wide range of both toxic and infra-red sensors, providing the flexibility required to meet most applications.

At the heart of the Altair 5X are MSA’s XCell sensors, now with an extended range covering SO2, Cl2, and NH3. Superior stability and accuracy characterise the new MSA XCell sensors. They are remarkably long-lasting and the standard sensors are designed for an average life of more than four years (more than three years for SO2, Cl2, and NH3). These new sensors allow for faster response/clear times, bump tests in less than 10 seconds, and span calibration time of 60 seconds for common configurations, thanks to micro-electronics inside the sensor. XCell Sensors provide greater signal stability and repeatability under changing or extreme environmental conditions and are plug-and-play-capable. An end-of-sensor-life indicator gives advanced warning to user, eliminating service outages.

A rugged housing provides unsurpassed durability and with large, glove-friendly buttons and an optional high-contrast colour display, the Altair 5X is easy to operate in any work environment, even in low-light conditions. This is further with the option of a glow in the dark housing for all IR sensor equipped instruments. Unique features like MotionAlert and InstantAlert are standard on the Altair 5X providing added user confidence when faced with applications like confined space entry.

The Altair 5X is fully compatible with MSA’s Galaxy Automated Test System and MSA Link™ Software.
