Product Information

The ALTAIR® Single-Gas Detector featuring sensor options for carbon monoxide, hydrogen sulfide and oxygen will operate for over two years. This long lifespan, coupled with the unit’s high performance, results in one of the most cost-effective monitors on the market.

A rubberized housing and one-button operation provide the durability and ease of use users expect from MSA instruments. The triple-alarm system featuring two bright LEDs, a piercing audible alarm, and a vibrating alarm ensures that no alarm condition goes unnoticed.
