Portable Gas Detection
Workers around the world who face dangerous situations every day deserve the best gas detection instruments available. Our partner, MSA, works tirelessly to build smarter, better portable gas detection instruments that people can rely on. To that end, we’re proud to carry the ALTAIR® Multigas Detector series, a product line that includes the most advanced technology available in any portable gas detector on the market.
The ALTAIR® 5X Multigas Detector is as tough and functional as it looks. With a rugged polycarbonate housing, it boasts unsurpassed durability, including the ability to survive a 10-foot drop. Inside, a field-proven integral pump provides consistent gas flow without the problems of externally-attached components. Glove-friendly buttons and high-contrast display makes the ALTAIR® 5X Multigas Detector easy to use for all applications. And with a lithium-ion battery that lasts up to 20 hours, this detector is able to be used over multiple shifts. (An alkaline battery pack is also available as an accessory.)
The rugged, user-friendly ALTAIR® 5X Multigas Detector also has a focus on maximizing safety, even in the most demanding situations. The detector includes the exclusive MotionAlert™, which lets others know if the user has become immobile, and InstantAlert™, a manual alarm that alerts others if a dangerous situation has arisen. ALTAIR® 5X is capable of measuring up to 6 gases simultaneously and is driven by advanced MSA XCell® Sensor Technology. In addition to MSA XCell Sensors, the ALTAIR® 5X Multigas Detector can also be equipped with a wide selection of IR sensors covering many gases and ranges, including CO2. Compatibility with the MSA GALAXY GX2 Automated Test System and MSA Link™ Pro and MSA Link Software rounds out this detector to be one of the most advanced products on the market.

|The ALTAIR 5X Detector allows for an industry-first LEL, O2, CO, H2S, and SO2 60-second span calibration and 10 second bump test time.||Streamline your processes by eliminating a second and calibration step for the SO2 sensor. Spend less money on calibration gas for the most common 5 gas configuration in the market.|
|The ALTAIR 5X Detector is equipped with an internal integral pump.||Save on spare parts and external components by having an integrated pump that is easier to service. Make your workers’ jobs easier with a more durable and easy-to-use solution for remote monitoring.|
|The ALTAIR 5X Detector is powered by the fast MSA XCell® Sensor family including the introduction of 3 new sensors.||Typical cost savings of over 50% on calibration gas, replacement sensors, and maintenance. Typical decrease in downtime of over 50% while bump testing the instrument, waiting for a gas response, and waiting for the instrument to clear. Enhanced safety with industry-leading accuracy, repeatability, and response times.|
|4-year expected sensor life on LEL, O2, CO, H2S, SO2, IR, and standard 3-year instrument warranty. 3-year expected sensor life on NH3, Cl2, and standard 2-year warranty.||Spend less money on replacement sensors and purchase replacement instruments less frequently.|
Spend less time maintaining instruments, more time using them.
|The ALTAIR 5X Detector provides an industry-exclusive end-of-sensor-life warning.||Use this early warning feature to save money and aggravation by reducing Instrument downtime and sensor inventory.|
|MotionAlert™ feature -“man-down” alarm// InstantAlert™ feature - manual alarm||You and your fellow workers now have additional ways to call for help and send out a warning. Ideal for confined space applications when there is no direct line of sight.|
|The ALTAIR 5X Detector is durable, providing industry - leading impact resistance.||You can rely on the ALTAIR 5X Detector to perform within tough industrial environments without worrying about breaking a “delicate”instrument.|
Designed to withstand a 20 ft drop, the ALTAIR® 4X Multigas Detector is an extremely rugged and durable device. And with large, glove-friendly buttons and a high-contrast display, the ALTAIR® 4X Multigas Detector is easy to operate in any work environment, even with low-light conditions.
Toughness and usability aren’t the only highlights. This Multigas Detector can simultaneously measure up to four gases from a wide range of XCell® sensor options, including combustible gases, O₂, CO, H₂S, SO₂ and NO₂. These revolutionary XCell® Sensors have a typical life of more than four years, double the industry average, and are engineered using MSA’s proprietary application design. This versatile portable detector is a perfect match for industries ranging from fire fighting to welding, and its digital sensor output makes it less likely to suffer from RF interference. With less time spent on calibration and bump tests, you save calibration gas, maintenance costs and in turn, save money. But most importantly in your industry, saving seconds on response time can also mean saving lives.
To prove the quality of this multigas detector line, the instrument comes with a full three-year warranty, an entire year longer than the industry average. It’s no question then that you can depend on the ALTAIR® 4X Multigas Detector to withstand the wear and tear that other portable gas detectors can’t.
