Description

The ALTAIR 5X can measure up to six gases simultaneously and can be fitted with a wide range of both toxic and infra-red sensors, providing the flexibility required to meet most applications.

At the heart of the ALTAIR 5X are MSA’s XCell sensors, now with an extended range covering SO2, Cl2, and NH3. Superior stability, accuracy, repeatability, fast response and longevity characterize the new MSA XCell sensors. They are remarkably long-lasting and the standard sensors are designed for an average life of more than four years (more than three years for SO2, Cl2, and NH3) These new sensors allow for faster response/clear times, bump tests in less than 10 seconds, and span calibration time of 60 seconds for common configurations, thanks to micro-electronics inside the sensor.

XCell Sensors provide greater signal stability and repeatability under changing or extreme environmental conditions and are plug-and-play-capable. An end-of-sensor-life indicator gives advanced warning to user, eliminating service outages.

Features & Benefits

  • MSA XCell Sensors:
    • New exotic SO2, Cl2, and NH3 sensors for expanded monitoring applications
    • Sensor response and clear times under 15 seconds for most common sensor configurations
    • Bump test in less than 15 seconds for most common sensor configurations
    • Span calibration time of 60 seconds for most common sensor configurations
    • Greater signal stability and repeatability under changing or extreme environmental conditions
    • All XCell Sensors are capable of plug-and-play capabilities for easy reconfiguration
    • Typical life greater than four years for combustible, O2, and CO/H2S sensors
    • Proprietary operating mode of the combustible sensor helps it stand up to poisons over the life of the sensor
    • End-of-sensor-life warning gives advanced notice to user, reducing service outage
  • MotionAlert feature: Triggers an alarm if the user remains motionless for 20 seconds, indicating possible "man down"
  • InstantAlert feature: Allows users to manually activate all alarms to alert others to a potentially hazardous situation
  • Triple alarm system: Clear visual, audible and vibration alarm notification
  • Large LCD: Clear, easy and concise readings at a glance
  • 24 hour bump-test checkmark: Confirms the detector recently passed a gas response check
  • Rugged rubberised housing: Withstands 3 m drop
  • IP R65 rated by third party: Resists water and dust ingress
  • Li-polymer battery: Optimum usage time (18 hrs) with minimum charging time means you can buy fewer instruments to cover long shifts
  • Glow-in-the-dark case (optional): Allows high visibility, increasing the safety at confined spaces, mining and other dark environments
  • QuickCheck Test Station compatible: Allows automatic bump testing of unit with a simple PASS or FAIL indication, helping to reduce human error. All test records are stored and can be retrieved as needed using MSA Link Software
  • MSA Link Software-compatible: When connected to MSA Link Software, all stored records can be accessed. Print capability for calibration reports, alarm set point changes etc. is offered in multiple languages
  • Event log/data log: Records up to 500 events for a quick overview of calibration records and alarms. If more details are required, a full data log can be assessed
  • Ergonomic design with large rubberised buttons: Ensures easy operation, even with gloves
  • MSA XCell Sensors: Lower cost of ownership due to less gas required (faster calibration and bump check times) and longer sensor life 3-year standard warranty (up to 4 years, optional
  • GALAXY System compatible: Allows for automatic testing, calibration, and recordkeeping for up to 10 units simultaneously, helping to reduce human error
  • Auto calibration: Saves time and calibration gas by calibrating all sensors simultaneously
