MSA ALTAIR PRO Carbon Monoxide (CO) 25/100 ppm Gas Detector
State of the Art Sensors
With a wide choice of sensors ALTAIR pro carbon monoxide monitor is suitable for applications including industries such as Oil & Gas, Chemicals, Steel & Iron, Utilities, Fire Service and Contractors.
MSA ALTAIR Pro features a broad range of 20 series sensors which are field proven and fast-responding. Available configurations for these include O2, CO, H2S, NH3, Cl2, ClO2, HCN, NO2, PH3 and SO2. In order to reduce instrument down time all sensors are simple to fit.
MSA’s CO gas detector is IP 67 rated and is designed to tolerate a 3m drop test. The housing of the carbon monoxide detector is extra thick and rubberised to provide protection from accidental drops. To ensure resistance to water and dust ingress the ALTAIR Pro has a simple, yet effective tight seal. Metal screw inserts offer a high level of structural stability over the unit’s lifetime.
To ensure carbon monoxide detection is safely carried out, there is a rugged suspension clip which can be fitted as standard to the MSA ALTAIR pro so it can be securely attached to clothing.
There are three other clips available to the user; the cell phone clip, the lanyard clip and also the hardhat clip.
Easy to Read and Use
The carbon monoxide monitor’s display is straight forward and easy to read due to the large numeric display. This also allows the user to view gas concentration, alarm conditions, battery status, set points and peak reading with accuracy and confidence.
ALTAIR Pro CO gas detector has a simple and straightforward operation. To offer quick and easy access to all functions of the carbon monoxide detector true single-button is in operation.
By confirming “Gas Test” with a single button press, ALTAIR Pro allows for a simple bump check, which will be recorded and displayed on the screen as a checkmark for carbon monoxide detection for 24 hours.
Distinctive Alarm System
The MSA ALTAIR Pro has a superior triple alarm system which consists of a distinctive audible alarm of 95 dB at 30cm, super bright LEDs visible from a 320° angle and a strong vibration alarm. There is a distinctive difference between the High alarm sounds and the Low, TWA and STEL alarm. This difference is also repeated for the visual alarm. The numeric display of the carbon monoxide monitors also show ‘LO’ or ‘HI’ alarm status.
Full Datalogging as Standard
A highly comprehensive data logging facility is standard on ALTAIR Pro. To assist CO detection the 50 latest events, along with the peak gas reading are recorded in the session log every 3 minutes. The data collected can be transferred to a PC using the multi-lingual MSA Link Software and ALTAIR Pro’s Infra-Red link. This means the data can be assessed quickly and easily.
The CR2 battery of the ALTAIR Pro is compact yet highly efficient and will run for over a year over a standard working week. The batteries are commercially available and simple to replace and their status is continually displayed on the gas detector.
The carbon monoxide monitor’s alarms along with the response to a known gas concentration can be checked by ALTAIR QuickCheck by simply pressing the button and placing it onto the test station. The test results are displayed on the three LEDs. ALTAIR QuickCheck will be available either with automatic gas delivery system or manual regulator.
The GALAXY automated record keeping and calibration test system is a completely stand alone system that does not require the use of a computer. To allow multiple instruments to be simultaneously tested, calibrated and charged up to 10 GALAXY modules can be connected together and using an industry standard flash card over 1000 individual test records can be stored. An optical wired connection is also available.
