Boilerplate From the Manufacturer

The new MSA Altair 5 Multigas Detector raises the bar once again with 5-gas capability, more than 17 preprogrammed languages, high-resolution, crisp color display option, and MSA's exclusive MotionAlert and InstantAlert features. Many great features plus the outstanding durability and performance you expect from MSA.

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.

Using a portable gas detector should never be a challenge! MSA has designed the Altair 5 Multigas Detector with the same ease-of-use logic to ensure that minimal user training, interaction, or maintenance, is required. The intuitive menu-driven display and 3 large and tactile buttons make operation easy - even while wearing gloves. Numerous customization options are offered to fit many budgets and experience levels, from personal monitoring and pre-entry checks within confined space to industrial hygienist use.

MSA's new generation of miniature catalytic combustion sensors will reliably detect up to 100% LEL of combustible gases, including many solvents. MSA's high-performing electrochemical duo-tox hydrogen sulfide/carbon monoxide sensor allows for an additional sensor slot.

Many other toxic sensor choices are available, including ammonia, chlorine, hydrogen cyanide, phosphine, and sulfur dioxide. A lithium-ion rechargeable battery provides enough runtime to cover double shifts.
