The Altair 5 Multigas Detector is described by its maker, MSA, as the first portable five-gas detector with MotionAlert and InstantAlert features.
MotionAlert, when enabled, activates a man-down alarm if no motion is detected for 30 seconds. InstantAlert allows users to manually activate an audible alarm to warn those around them of potentially dangerous situations.
Other features include an optional, high-resolution color display screen with logo customization, more than 17 preprogrammed languages, Galaxy System-compatibility and standard vibrating alarm and data logging.
The Altair 5 is MSA Link Software ready and, according to the company, is an ideal choice for confined space entry.
