MSA Altair 5x Multigas Detector

WORKERS who face potentially dangerous situations deserve the best protection available. At MSA, we work tirelessly to build smarter, better gas detection instruments that people across the world rely on. First we introduced MSA's advanced technology with the ALTAIR 4X Multigas Detector with XCell Sensors. Now we're proud to introduce the expansion of the most advanced technology available in any portable gas detector on the market: The ALTAIR 5X Multigas Detector with XCell Sensor Technology and PID option.

Life-Saving Performance:

  Large buttons and bright display enable quick and easy operation even while wearing gloves
  If a user becomes disabled due to unforeseen hazards, the MotionAlert sensor will activate after 30 seconds
  The InstantAlert feature enables users to manually alert others of a dangerous situation with the push of a button
  Compatible with Galaxy Test System
  MSA Link ™ Software-ready
  Global approvals for worldwide acceptance
  Glow-in-the-dark housing for mining and confined space applications

Lasting Durability:

  3-year back-to-back instrument warranty includes LEL, O., CO, H.S, SO., NO. XCell and IR sensors
  2-year warranty on NH. and Cl.; minimum 12-month warranty on other sensors
  Withstands extreme impacts with rugged polycarbonate housing
  Passes 10-foot drop test
  The IP65-rated ALTAIR 5X is both dust-tight and water-tight

Built on Durability - The ALTAIR 5X Multigas Detector for combustible gases in % LEL and/or % volume range, O. and toxic gas detection is as tough and functional as it looks. A rugged, rubberized polycarbonate housing provides unsurpassed durability, including the ability to survive a 3-meter drop. Inside, a field-proven integral pump provides consistent gas flow without the problems of externallyattached components. Ergonomic design, glove-friendly buttons and high-contrast display make the ALTAIR 5X Multigas Detector easy to use for all applications.
