MSA Altair 5X Multigas Detector Model 10116926 – O2, CO, H2S


Keep your employees safe from dangerous gas levels using the MSA Altair 5X Multigas Detector.


MSA Altair 5X Multigas Detector with Sampling Line and Probe

This version of the Altair 5X Multigas Detector includes a 1-foot probe and a 10-foot sampling line. It uses a monochrome display for reading values.  It can be used to detect combustible gases at the Lower Explosive Limit (LEL) or using volume percentage range.  This model can also detect levels of these potentially dangerous gases:

  • Oxygen – O2
  • Carbon Monoxide – CO
  • Hydrogen Sulfide – H2S

Applications for this multigas detector include:

  • Combustible Detection
  • Toxic Detection
  • Oxygen Detection
  • Confined Space

Rugged and multi-featured, this unit boasts several options and features for maximum safety and ease-of-use. It comes standard with large buttons for use with gloves and a polycarbonate housing that protects the detector from bumps, bruises, and drops of up to 10′. It also features the exclusive MotionAlert, which lets others know if the user has become immobile. There’s InstantAlert, too—a manual alarm to alerts others of danger.

The rugged, multi-featured ALTAIR 5X Multigas Detector boasts several options that provide maximum safety and make it easy to use in even the most demanding situations. It features large buttons for easy use, and its polycarbonate housing protects the detector for drops of up to 10 ft (3 m). The detector also boasts the exclusive MotionAlert™, which lets others know if the user has become immobile, and InstantAlert™, a manual alarm that alerts others if a dangerous situation has arisen. The glow-in-the-dark housing makes it easy to see in a confined space, while the large buttons and bright display makes operation possible even when the user is wearing gloves.

ALTAIR 5X  is driven by advanced MSA XCell® Sensor Technology. These sensors offer superior response time, stability, accuracy, and reliability together with an extended service life.
