Altair 5X

Altair 5X

The ALTAIR 5X Gas Detector is capable of measuring up to 6 gases simultaneously and is now available with integrated PID sensor for VOC detection. Driven by advanced MSA XCell® Sensor Technology, the ALTAIR 5X Gas Detector delivers faster response time, better stability, accuracy, longer service life, and cost savings over the life of the instrument.

Available in:

  • MSA Altair 5X (5 Gas)
  • MSA Altair 5X IR (CO2)
  • MSA Altair 5X PID (VOCs)

  • Rugged overmolded polycarbonate housing
  • Ability to survive 10-ft. (3m) drop
  • IP65-certified
  • Field-proven integral pump provides consistent gas flow
  • High performance XCell Sensors last longer:
    • Typical life greater than 4 years for combustible, O2, CO/H2S, SO2, CO/NO2 and CO (high concentration)
