MSA Altair 5 Gas Detector C/W Motion Alert

MSA Altair 5 Gas Detector
MSA Altair 5 Gas Detector
MSA Altair 5 Gas Detector Application

The MSA Altair 5 Multigas Detector raises the bar once again with 5-gas capability, more than 17 preprogrammed languages, high-resolution, crisp colour display option, and MSA's exclusive MotionAlert and InstantAlert features.

The MSA Altair 5 has been specifically designed with the same easy-to-use technology as the Altair 4 to minimise the levels of user training, interaction and maintenance required.

Ideal for confined space applications, the MotionAlert feature, when enabled, activates a 'man down' alarm if no motion is detected for 30 seconds. The InstantAlert feature allows users to manually activate an audible alarm to alert those around them to potentially dangerous situations.

The triple alarm system fitted to the ALTAIR 5 effectively alert the user to potential danger. Super-bright LEDs provide a clear notification of any alarm condition. ALTAIR 5 also has a confidence safe LED that flashes every 15 sec to indicate the detector is working properly. The audible alarm is typically measured at 95 dB at 30 cm and a strong vibrating alarm is also a standard feature.
