SKU: W-ALTAIR-5X//Out of Stock

Details

MSA’s new ALTAIR 5X Multigas Detector is driven by the most advanced technology available in any portable gas detector on the market.

  • The ALTAIR 5X Detector allows for an industry-first LEL,O2, CO, H2S, and SO2 60-second span calibration and 10-second bump test time
  • Streamline your processes by eliminating a second and calibration step for the SO2 sensor--spend less money on calibration gas for the most common 5-gas configuration in the market
  • The ALTAIR 5X Detector is equipped with an internal integral pump--save on spare parts and external components by having an integrated pump that is easier to service; make your workers’ jobs easier with a more durable and easy-to-use solution for remote monitoring
  • The ALTAIR 5X Detector is powered by the fast MSA XCell® Sensor family including the introduction of 3 new sensors for typical cost savings of over 50% on calibration gas, replacement sensors, and maintenance
  • The ALTAIR 5X Detector provides an industry-exclusive end-of-sensor-life-warning; use this early warning feature to save money and aggravation by reducing Instrument downtime and sensor inventory
  • The ALTAIR 5X Detector is durable, providing industry -leading impact resistance so can rely it to perform within tough industrial environments without worrying about breaking a “delicate” instrument
Built on Durability

The ALTAIR 5X Multigas Detector for LEL, O2, and toxic gas detection is as tough and functional as it looks. A rugged polycarbonate housing provides unsurpassed durability, including the ability to survive a 10-foot drop. Inside, a field-proven integral pump provides consistent gas flow without the problems of externally-attached components. Ergonomic design, glove-friendly buttons, and high-contrast display make the ALTAIR 5X Multigas Detector easy to use in all applications.

Powered by Performance
Toughness and durability aren’t the whole story. The real strength of the ALTAIR 5X Multigas Detector comes from new sensor technology. MSA XCell Sensors have a typical life of more than double the industry average, and are engineered using MSA’s proprietary application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC) design. By miniaturizing the sensors’ controlling electronics and placing them inside the sensor itself, MSA XCell Sensors offer superior stability, accuracy, and repeatability. MSA XCell Sensors are a breakthrough in chemical and mechanical sensor design, enabling faster response and span calibration times. With less time spent on calibration and bump tests, you save calibration gas, maintenance costs, and in turn, save money. But most importantly, in your industry, saving seconds on response time can also mean saving lives. In addition to MSA XCell Sensors, the ALTAIR 5X Multigas Detector can also be equipped with our wide variety of IR sensors covering many gases and ranges including CO2.

Count on the ALTAIR 5X Detector
Exclusive MotionAlert™ and InstantAlert™ features make the ALTAIR 5X Multigas Detector ideal for applications such as confined space monitoring. MotionAlert feature activates when a user becomes disabled and motionless, quickly alerting others to the disabled user’s location. And with a simple push of a button, InstantAlert feature enables users to manually alert others to potentially hazardous situations.

Flexibility to Meet Your Demands
MSA’s ALTAIR 5X Multigas Detector provides many options to fit various applications. The detector is configurable with either a high-resolution color or monochrome LCD display with multilingual capabilities. MSA’s Logo Express® Service option is available to customize the color display. The detector is easily configurable with interchangeable plug-and-play sensor slots for MSA XCell
Sensors. Up to six gases can be monitored simultaneously. Furthermore, this multigas detector offers optional glow-in-the-dark instrument housing for IR sensor-equipped units. The ALTAIR 5x Multigas Detector’s lithium-ion battery lasts up to 20 hours, allowing it to be used over multiple shifts. An alkaline battery pack is also available as an accessory. MSA’s ALTAIR 5X Multigas Detector is fully compatible with the MSA GALAXY® Automated Test System and MSA Link™ Software.

Q&A's:

"What is the calibration schedule for the Altair 5X multigas detector? Is there an in the field calibration kit available?"

The schedule is up to the end user (customer) they set their own schedule, we have departments that have it done monthly, bi-monthly, every 3 months, every 4 months, it all depends on how often the detectors are used, and if you can afford to have a MSA tech come in to your house and do the calibration. Some departments do it themselves, you get a cap and hose for calibration with the unit, you then purchase ""cocktail mixture"", a regulaor to screw on the cylinder and you can do it yourself. This mixture is good for 12 months, then you will need to purchase another cylinder and so on and so on. We have come to the conclusion that it was easlier for us to send a tech in to do this at set times during the year, if your a career department you can assign someone to do this, volunteer departments hard to keep this tract of this, when you need this unit you want it to work.

"What are the dimensions of the ALTAIR 5X Multigas Detector?"

7" H x 3.5" W x 1.5" D

"We need 6 ALTAIR 5x so please let us know how many do you have in stock for delivery. Thanks"

Sanclar, as I type this we are presently out of stock, normally we place these type of orders on a as needed, because they have to install the sensors. Each customer has a different set up that they want in their meter, so it's a build as you go. Usually takes about 30 days after order has been placed to see the meters. If you look on the web page you will see at the bottom of page we offer 6 different ""kits"" you can pick from.

"Can I have false H2S readings in presence of SO2 gas?"

Cristian, I'm sending you a different e mail from MSA that I hope helps you.

"What is the difference between kit 4 and kit 6"

Mike, # 4 should have ""Mono-Chrome Display"" not color, we have a correction to make to our web site, sorry to cause any confusion or to mislead you

"What is the difference between Kit 4 and Kit 6?"

Mike the #4 kit has a Mono-Chrome Display and the #6 has a Color Display, our web page had been wrong for a while someone pointed it out to us and we corrected it today.

"I work for an agriculural company and we have pits 30' deep. What do I need to test at these depths?"

Jim, do you have meters of some sort that you are using now? Our suggestion to you would be to go to our web site and purchase the Altair 5X multigas detector with the XCell sensor technology, and a P/N MSA-1004664, 25' Polyurethane sample hose, if you anything longer you will need to get a second hose and hook them together. If you decide to purchase the detector/meter you will need to do it off of our web site, we can not sell it to you directly, has to be off of the web site.

"We are in Dubai, would like to purchase MSA ALTAIR 5X Multigas Detector. Please provide the best price with courier charges."
