IT'S WHAT'S INSIDE THAT COUNTS
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.
Built on Durability
The ALTAIR 5X Multigas Detector for LEL, 02, and toxic gas detection is as tough and functional as it looks. A rugged polycarbonate housing provides unsurpassed durability, including the ability to survive a 1 O-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 high-contrast display make the ALTAIR 5X Multigas Detector easy to use in all applications.
Powered by Performance
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 XCell Sensors are a breakthrough in chemical and mechanical sensor design, enabling faster response and span calibration times. With less time spent on calibration and bump tests, you save calibration gas, maintenance costs, and in turn, save money. But most importantly, in your industry, saving seconds on response time can also mean saving lives.
In addition to MSA XCell Sensors, the ALTAIR 5X Multigas Detector can also be equipped with our wide variety of IR sensors covering many gases and ranges including C02.
Flexibility to Meet Your Needs
MSA's ALTAIR 5X Multigas Detector provides many options to fit various applications. The detector is configurable with either a high-resolution color or monochrome LCD display with multilingual capabilities. MSA's Logo Express" Service option is available to customize the color display. 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. An alkaline battery pack is also available as an accessory. MSA's ALTAIR 5X Multigas Detector is fully compatible with the MSA GALAXY® Automated Test System and MSA Link™ Software.
