A rugged housing provides unsurpassed durability, including the ability to survive a 6 m drop test onto concrete. And with large, glove-friendly buttons and a high-contrast display, the ALTAIR 4X is easy to operate in any work environment, even low-light conditions. A full range of accessories is availabe.
The real strength of the ALTAIR 4X Multigas Detector comes from new sensor technology.
MSA XCell Sensors double the industry average, and are engineered using MSA?۪s proprietary application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC) design. The sensors?۪ controlling electronics is miniaturized and placed inside the sensor itself.
The XCell Sensors:
Superior stability, accuracy, repeatability and fast response characterize the new MSA XCell sensors. They are remarkably long-lasting and designed for an average life of more than four years. An end-of-sensor-life indicator gives advanced warning to user, eliminating service outages. Micro-electronics inside the sensor lead to faster response and calibration times.
