The smallest portable gas detector to measure up to six gases

18 June 2010

Draeger X-am 5600 is believed to be the smallest portable gas detection instrument for the measurement of up to six gases. With an ergonomic mobile phone design, it features innovative infrared (IR) sensor technology and provides accurate, reliable measurements of explosive, combustible and toxic gases and vapours, as well as oxygen.

Ideal for personal monitoring applications, this light yet robust detector is designed for single-handed operation in tough industrial environments and is ATEX approved for use in explosive areas classified as Zone 0.

By using a combination of innovative Draeger IR sensors and the latest Draeger XXS miniaturised electrochemical sensors, the Draeger X-am 5600 can detect a wide variety of hazards. These include O2, CO, H2S, H2 , CO2, Cl2, HCN, NH3, NO, NO2, PH3, SO2 and organic vapours/

Immune to poisons such as hydrogen sulphide (H2S), Draeger IR sensors ensure dependable warnings against explosive and combustible hazards such as hydrocarbons and carbon dioxide. Offering a low cost of ownership, they offer an extended sensor life of up to eight years, twice as long as catalytic Ex sensors. In addition, they only require calibration every 12 months and, as a result, significantly reducing maintenance costs.

An optional external pump is available with hoses up to 20m for pre-entry measurements in tanks or pipelines. In addition, the Draeger X-am 5600 can be used in conjunction with the new Draeger X-zone to provide wireless area monitoring. Designed to save time and reduce workload, the Draeger E-Cal Automatic Test and Calibration Station and the Draeger Bump Test Station are also ideal system extensions.

Equipped with a data logger as standard, the unit also allows data such as measured values and configurations to be transmitted via infrared interface to a PC. The data can then be analysed using the Draeger Gas Vision software, with optional user registration being carried out via the Draeger CC-Vision software.
