Cell Sensor technology

The unitís MSA Cell Sensors are the most advanced cell sensor technology on the market. These sensors have a typical lifespan of more than double the industry average and are engineered using the application-specific integrated circuit design. Utilizing microelectronic technology, the cell sensors breakthrough design enables a faster response time and greater reliability than cell sensors of the past leading to less time and money spent on calibration and bump tests.

Durability

The unit is housed in a durable rubberized polycarbonate grip to ensure safe handling, and passes the 10 foot drop test. Its light weight (1 pound) and compact design ensure easy portability. The Altair 5X Multigas Detector also features a field-proven integral pump providing consistent gas flow without the problems of externally attached components.

Specifications

The Altair 5X Multigas Detector is fully compatible with MSA Link Software and MSA Galaxy Automated Test System. Sensor response and clear times are under 15 seconds for most sensor configurations. The technologically advanced unit also features a bump test of less than 15 seconds, a span calibration time of 60 seconds, a run time of 20 hours, and a lengthy lifespan. The Multigas Detector also comes with a 3 year warranty, beating competitorsí warranties by a full year.

With an audible alarm of greater than 95 decibels, a visual alarm of 2 LED lights, and a standard vibrating alarm, the unit is well designed to alert users of potential gases. The devices can also effectively store up to 1000 events.

Users can also minimize risk of user errors by participating in MSAís online training and web content. This includes new Altair 5 X Multigas Detector simulation tutorials designed to simulate instrument operation.
