SINCE 1937, WHEN WE INTRODUCED OUR FIRST DETECTOR TUBE, DRAEGER HAS
BEEN THE WORLD LEADER IN THE DETECTION OF GASES AND VAPORS IN THE
INDUSTRIAL WORKPLACE. OVER THE YEARS WE HAVE DEVELOPED MORE SENSORS
AND DETECTION DEVICES FOR MORE APPLICATIONS THAN ANYONE ELSE! OUR
LEADING EDGE TECHNOLOGY HAS KEPT US ON THE FOREFRONT OF ADVANCEMENTS
IN ELECTROCHEMICAL SENSORS THUS PROVIDING THE MOST ACCURATE AND
SPECIFIC RESULTS AVAILABLE.
Pac III: The Most in a Single Gas Monitor
The Pac III Monitor delivers the most! The
loudest audible alarm, the largest display,
the easiest to use electronics, and the
smartest sensors. All of these features are
found in this small and rugged gas monitor.
Using DragerSensor technology, the Pac
III is the most versatile gas detection
instrument because it can utilize any one of
Dragerís 30+ intelligent sensors, and
quickly switch between them in the field.
The DragerSensors provide fast and
accurate response to hazardous gas levels
while the attention-getting alarms make
sure you know the danger is present. The
Pac III provides the most sensing and
alarming capabilities of any single gas
monitor in the industry today.
Many gas-monitoring applications are also
environmentally challenging. It is not
uncommon to work in environments that
are hot, cold, wet, dirty, or affected by
corrosive gases. These extreme working
environments, such as an offshore oil rig or
an underground mine, put equipment to the
test. The Pac III was designed to handle
these tough conditions in stride, and it does!
The metal plated ABS housing provides a
light-weight package that is easy to wear,
but can take a beating in the field.
Regardless of accidental drops, unintentional
bumps, or the occasional submersion in
water, the Pac III is still ready to measure
gas and sound its alarms. O-rings seal the
housing from water or dust. The horn and
sensor compartments are sealed against
the elements too. The Pac III is ready for
the most demanding applications.
The shiny silver package is not just for
looks. The chrome-plated housing provides
superior resistance to potential Radio
Frequency Interference (RFI). This means
that you can use walkie-talkies in close
proximity to the unit without causing false
In addition to protection against RFI, the
metallic coating serves to protect the
instrument against heat radiation; a valuable
feature in the primary metals industries
where high heat exposure is common. The
Pac III instrument is fully protected against
the environment so it can do its job,
protecting those who wear it!
The large display constantly communicates
information to the user. The gas concentration
is continuously shown in large numbers
for quick analysis of the situation. Below
the concentration is the measurement unit
(ppm or % Vol.) and the gas being
measured (eg: CO, CL2, PH3, etc.).
levels (eg: A1 or A2 characters) are also
shown in the display. The bottom line of the
display is reserved for special information
characters. For example, a battery icon tells
you when there is a low battery condition.
All alarms and warnings are announced
with an audible and visual signal and a
display message or character. The Pac III
communicates the information you want and
need to know.
The Pac III is one tough little instrument,
but very easy to operate. The three buttons
on the front of the unit turn it ON, OFF,
and access routinely needed data like battery
levels. Operations like acknowledging
alarms and activating the backlight are
clearly marked. Implementing this instrument
into your gas-monitoring program is a
Functions such as calibration and alarm set
points are adjusted through plain language
menu commands. These functions are protected
by a password to prevent accidental
or unauthorized adjustment.
In this mode,
the three-buttons act as up, down, and
enter buttons to navigate you through the
menu. Operation of the Pac III is very
The Smartest Technology
The Hygiene version of the Pac III is
available for any application that requires
documentation and calculation of exposures
against the TWA, STEL, or Ceiling values.
The Pac III is able to record and store in
excess of 125 hours @ 1 minute intervals
of gas exposure. The averaging period is
adjustable to extend the recording length,
or shorten the averaging period for better
resolution of quickly changing conditions.
The Pac III connects to your computer via a
standard RS-232, 9-pin connector. This
information is fed to Drager's GasVision
Software. This Windows based program
provides graphic, spread sheet, or combined
analysis of the collected data. The
integrated search engine allows you to
recall stored data by the gas, date, or
person you were monitoring. This makes
data management an easy task.
