Drager - Pac 7000 Carbon Monoxide (CO) Personal Gas Detector
Please note: this product is now obsolete. See the Drager Pac 6500, 8000 and 8500 ranges for appropriate replacements.
This particular Pac 7000 monitor detects carbon monoxide.
Small and Robust
The Drager Pac 7000 offers a high level of reliability and fast warning against harmful concentrations of H2S, O2, CO, CO2, SO2, CL2, HCN, NH3, NO2, NO, PH3 or OV.
The carbon monoxide monitor’s casing is impact resistant with a protective rubber coating and is impervious to corrosive chemicals. The Pac 7000 meets the requirements of IP 65 to ensure CO detection is still in operation, even when projected with water. The protection against electromagnetic effects has been optimised. Drager Pac 7000 is secured to the user’s clothing using a stainless steel crocodile clip which can also be rotated to suit individual preferences. To allow 360° visibility there are two alarm lights located on the corner of the carbon monoxide detector.
No Lifetime Limitation
The Pac 7000 ensures long-term operation through its design and features. There is no additional equipment needed for the replacement of the battery and sensor and it can be done on-site. The dust and water filter on the front of the instrument is also replaceable should it become clogged with dirt or mud.
Drager’s carbon monoxide detector also comes with a unique and optional 5-year warranty (filters and batteries need to be replaced at regular intervals) for the hydrogen sulfide, oxygen and carbon monoxide detectors.
New Sensor Technology ‘En Miniature’
The CO gas detector uses long-life, state-of-the-art Drager XXS Sensor technology which is both reliable and fast in regards to the measurement results. The application-oriented design of the Pac 7000 is supported by the small size of the sensor. Any gas hazards that may occur are displayed immediately due to the very short diffusion paths inside the carbon monoxide monitor and the quick electrochemical reaction times achieved by the Drager XXS Sensors.
Personnel safety is always the first priority. When monitoring carbon monoxide, the sensor is positioned inside the housing of the Drager Pac 7000 to allow gas to reach it from above and from the front. The positioning of the sensor also minimises the danger of a gas inlet being accidently covered.
Alarms and Warnings
During carbon monoxide detection visual, vibrating and audible alarms are triggered when the alarm thresholds are exceeded or in the case of oxygen, when the levels fall below the set value. These alarms are configurable and for peak perception a two-tone alarm is used. Another feature of the Pac 7000 is the adjustable TWA (time-weighted average) alarm and STEL (short-term exposure level) alarm.
A warning will also be given by the co gas detector when battery levels are low or in the event of a device error.
Drager’s carbon monoxide detector features a data logger in which all concentrations and events are stored together with their respective dates and times. The intervals are variable, can be adjusted by the user and any stored data may be downloaded through use of a PC and Drager Pac Vision or Drager CC-Vision software. It can also be edited using Microsoft® EXCEL® software. Alternatively, complete data evaluation is possible when the Dräger GasVision software is used.
Bump Test Mode
Bump tests are used to test the carbon monoxide monitor’s functionality using a known gas concentration. This is required by national regulations in order to maintain work safety in industrial settings. Drager Pac 7000 is designed to make sure the testing is easier through automating the bump test process when used in conjunction with the Drager Bump Test Station.
The bump test mode is integrated within the CO gas detector and can be configured by the user to comply with specific safety regulations. For example the Pac 7000 can inform the user when a function test is needed and if the test is not performed after a set period of time then the CO gas monitor will automatically shut off.
Calibration and Configuration
An integrated menu is featured on the carbon monoxide monitor which includes the bump test mode, fresh air calibration and span calibration. Password protection is also available for the fresh air and span calibration features. The Drager Pac 7000 is equipped with an infrared interface and can be docked to a PC through the use of a connecting cradle or the Drager E-Cal system. In order to configure the functions of the carbon monoxide detectors and calibrate and download the stored data, Drager Pac Vision or Drager CC Vision software can be used.
