ALTAIR 5 - Atex Multi-Gas Detector

The versatile ALTAIR 5 is capable of measuring up to 6 gases simultaneously and can be fitted with a wide range of both toxic and infra-red sensors. Furthermore it provides the outstanding durability and ease-of-use you would expect from the ALTAIR family.

  • Outstanding durability
  • Easy to use
  • Triple alarm system (audible, visual, vibrating)
  • InstantAlert & MotionAlert alarm features for additional safety
  • High-resolution colour or monochrome display
  • Wireless USB-option for integration of ALTAIR 5 into the alpha Personal Network (gas readings and alarms can be transmitted to a central control station).

The rugged, multi-featured ALTAIR 5X Multigas Detector boasts several options that provide maximum safety and make it easy to use in even the most demanding situations. It features large buttons for easy use, and its polycarbonate housing protects the detector for drops of up to 10 feet. The detector also boasts the exclusive MotionAlert™, which lets others know if the user has become immobile, and InstantAlert™, a manual alarm that alerts others if a dangerous situation has arisen. The glow-in-the-dark housing makes it easy to see in a confined space, while the large buttons and bright display makes operation possible even when the user is wearing gloves.
