Gas detector – twice as fast

MSA Africa has launched the ALTAIR 4X multi-gas detector. The four-gas monitor has a sensor life that is 60% longer than the industry average, while its 24-hour run time exceeds the industry average by 71%.

The device can simultaneously measure up to four gases including combustible gases like O₂, CO, H₂S, SO₂ and NO₂. When used with the MSA ALTAIR Connect app, the gas monitor can text alarm notifications immediately to supervisors, team members or other users.

The ALTAIR 4XR multi-gas detector is strong and can endure a rugged environment. It can survive 25 drops from 1.2m, an incidental 7.5m drop onto concrete, has a military-grade rating (MIL-STD-810G), and an IP68 dust- wand waterproof rating (2m for at least an hour). It has an operating temperature range of between –40°C and +60°C.

Additional features include quick compliance confirmation with the Bump LED and on-screen checkmark. It can also bump and calibrate with half the gas, in half the time versus the industry average. Also ‘bump-and-calibrate’ can be carried out at a specified time of day with the MSA GALAXY GXT automated test system. A motion alert option informs others whenever a user has become immobile, while the user activates an instant alert to notify others of a potentially dangerous situation.
