MSA ALTAIR 2X Gas Detector

MSA ALTAIR 2X Gas Detector

Manufacturer: MSA

Product Code: MSA-ALTAIR-2X

MSA ALTAIR 2X Gas Detector

Introducing the ALTAIR 2X Gas Detector from MSA; the first one- or two-gas detector that incorporates industry-leading XCell Sensor technology to deliver unparalleled performance while dramatically minimizing total cost of ownership, increasing durability and delivering enhanced worker safety, compliance and traceability.

ALTAIR 2XP Gas Detector – with XCell Pulse Technology
Compliance, Traceability and Simplicity without Compromising Safety

Don’t Leave Safety to Chance!

  • The industry best practice of conducting a bump test prior to each day’s use is easily achieved with the ALTAIR 2XP. Bump anywhere, any time, without bottled gas or accessories.
  • Visual indicators on the detector make verification of bump test easy
  • Highly visible green light verifies successful bump test (green light, check mark)
  • Flashes red when not bumped
  • The ALTAIR 2X family of detectors have full instrument traceability of bump and calibration records, peak readings, event logs and data logs.


ALTAIR 2XT – Two-Tox Gas Detector

The ALTAIR 2XT Detector eliminates the need for a second detector by utilizing proven XCell Two-Tox Sensors. XCell Two-Tox Sensors detect two gases on distinct sensor channels with digital output that minimizes cross-channel interference.

ALTAIR 2X – Single-Gas Detector

MSA revolutionized gas detection with XCell Sensor technology. By miniaturizing the sensors’ controlling electronics and placing them inside the sensor itself using MSA’s proprietary application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC) design, MSA XCell Sensors offer superior stability, accuracy, and sensor life.

Lower Total Cost of Ownership

MSA’s industry leading technology combined with product durability means that ALTAIR 2X Gas Detectors provide a lower total cost of ownership than competitive instruments and will pay for itself quickly.

Reduced Costs and Expense

  • XCell Sensor response and recovery time reduces the gas consumption for calibration and gas bump tests (where applicable)
  • The ALTAIR 2XP with XCell Pulse Technology reduces the need for specific calibration gas and bump test accessories to provide significant savings
  • The ALTAIR 2XT Two-Tox eliminates the need for a second instrument in several applications

Increased Productivity

  • Skip the gas line! The stand-alone bump test on the ALTAIR 2XP means that you will be spending more time doing the job and less time waiting in line or conducting bump tests. Spending less time at the bump station means less down time and more time producing.
  • Faster bump tests, easy compliance and product reliability means you can get to work faster and safer.
