The Portable Gas Detector you have always wanted has arrived!

As we always do at MSA prior to the launch of a new product, we conduct hundreds of customer visits with one goal: to make sure that our new product meets our customers’ needs. Maybe you, reader, were one of the people we met across Europe to help define the best Multigas PID detector. By “best”, we mean the detector that corresponds to your needs and your constraints.

ALTAIR5XPIDThis is what our customers told us when we met them

“My team & I need a robust detector that resists harsher environments”
Unit leader HazMat Team – Germany
--
“The most important thing for me: the best safety level for my workers”
Industrial Contractor – Poland
--
“My budget has been reduced again this year; my challenge is to find the best compromise for the highest safety level/low cost of ownership”
HSE Manager in a Chemical plant – Italy
--
“I wear my PID detector all day long; I need a lightweight device” Operator in OGP storage site – The Netherlands
--
“I need to monitor LEL, O2, CO, H2S, SO2 and VOCs. I’d like to have one device to do so as, with the brand I use today, I have to use two devices”
Safety Manager in a refinery – France

This is how we made ALTAIR 5X PID Multigas Detector respond to their needs and constraints

“My team & I need a robust detector that resists harsher environments”
⇒ ALTAIR 5X PID Multigas Detector is the most durable detector of its class available on the market. It survives multiple incidental drops of 3 metres onto concrete, and its integrated armour eliminates the need for an additional protection case.

“The most important thing for me: the best safety level for my workers”
⇒ MSA XCell sensors have very fast response & clear times. Saving seconds on response time can also mean saving lives… MSA-exclusive MotionAlert & Instant Alert alarms bring additional safety. Last but not least, by incorporating Bluetooth as a standard feature, MSA offers wireless safety benefits to everyone.

“My budget has been reduced again this year; my challenge is to find the best compromise for the highest safety level/low cost of ownership”
⇒ ALTAIR 5X is powered by MSA XCell Sensor Technology. Expected XCell sensor life is > 4 years for most XCell LEL and electrochemical sensors. The time when it was necessary to replace sensors every 2 years is a bygone age. ALTAIR 5X delivers cost savings thanks to its extended life sensors, unmatched durability and long warranty including sensors and battery.

“I wear a Multigas PID detector all day long; I need a lightweight device”
⇒ The ALTAIR 5X Multigas Detector is compact and lightweight, at just 450 g! Wearing it all day long presents no issues. Plus, there is no need to recharge the battery during the day thanks its 13-hour battery autonomy.

“I need to monitor LEL, O2, CO, H2S, SO2 and VOCs. I’d like to have one detector to do so, but with the brand I use today, I need two detectors”
⇒ Only one ALTAIR 5 X PID Multigas detector is needed to cover this detection need! ALTAIR 5X measures up to six gases. With our complete range of sensors, thousands of instrument configurations are available. See for yourself with our Online Configurator on the ALTAIR 5X product page
