MSA Altair 5X Multigas Detector

MSA Altair 5X Multigas Detector

The Altair 5X multigas detector features an industry-first LEL, O2, CO, H2S and SO2 60-second span calibration and 15-second bump test plus new XCell exotic SO2, Cl2 and NH3 sensors. It has a rugged, polycarbonate housing that provides unsurpassed durability, including the ability to survive a 10-foot drop. Inside, a field-proven integral pump provides consistent gas flow without the problems of externally attached components. Ergonomic design, glove-friendly buttons and a high-contrast display make the Altair 5X multigas detector easy to use in all applications. 

Toughness and durability aren’t the whole story. The real strength of the Altair 5X multigas detector comes from new sensor technology. MSA XCell sensors have a typical life of more than double the industry average, and are engineered using MSA’s proprietary application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC) design. By miniaturizing the sensors’ controlling electronics and placing them inside the sensor itself, MSA XCell sensors offer superior stability, accuracy, and repeatability.

MSA’s Altair 5X multigas detector provides many options to fit various applications. The detector is configurable with either a high-resolution color (pictured) or monochrome LCD display with multilingual capabilities. The detector is easily configurable with interchangeable plug-and-play sensor slots for MSA XCell sensors. Up to six gases can be monitored simultaneously. Furthermore, this multigas detector offers optional glow-in-the-dark instrument housing for IR sensor-equipped units. The Altair 5X multigas detector’s lithium-ion battery lasts up to 20 hours, allowing it to be used over multiple shifts.

Exclusive MotionAlert and InstantAlert features make the Altair 5X ideal for applications such as confined space monitoring. The MotionAlert feature activates when a user becomes disabled and motionless, quickly alerting others to the disabled user’s location. And with a simple push of a button, the InstantAlert feature enables users to manually alert others to potentially hazardous situations.
