MSA ALTAIR 4X Multigas Detectors – call T&D Sales for price, delivery and stock.

MSA ALTAIR 4X Multigas Detector is a portable gas detector that can monitor up to four gases at any one time from a wide selection of XCell(R) sensor options including combustible gases, O₂, CO, H₂S, SO₂ and NO₂.

The MSA ALTAIR 4X has a four-year sensor life which is 60% longer than the industry average, while its 24-hour run time exceeds the industry average by 71%.

The ALTAIR 4X is versatile, rugged in design and has the ability to withstand a drop of 6 metres and economically uses less than half as much calibration gas as the industry average.

MSA ALTAIR 4X Multigas Detector – Key Features

  • Dependable multigas detector tests for LEL, oxygen, carbon monoxide, hydrogen sulfide, sulfur dioxide and nitrogen dioxide
  • Economical construction saves users more than 50% on calibration gas, replacement sensors and maintenance
  • Four-year sensor life means detector lasts 60% longer than the industry average
  • Unit uses 50% less calibration gas per minute than the average detectors within the industry
  • Two-tox CO/H2S sensor removes practically all cross-channel interference
  • Large buttons and high-contrast screen make operation easy in low-light conditions
  • Ribbed rubber housing provides secure grip and high durability
  • Unit features 95+ db alarm and ultra-bright LEDs
  • Exclusive end-of-sensor warning cautions user when unit’s sensor needs to be changed
  • MotionAlert option tells others that user has become immobile
  • InstantAlert provides manual alarm to alert others of a dangerous situation
