IT’S WHAT’S INSIDE THAT COUNTS
WORKERS who face potentially dangerous situations deserve the best protection available.
At MSA, we work tirelessly to build smarter, better gas detection instruments that people across
the world rely on. First we introduced MSA’s advanced technology with the ALTAIR 4X Multigas
Detector with XCell Sensors. Now we’re proud to introduce the expansion of the most advanced
technology available in any portable gas detector on the market:
the ALTAIR 5X Multigas Detector with XCell Sensor Technology.
Built on Durability
The ALTAIR 5X Multigas Detector for LEL, O2, and toxic gas detection is as tough and functional as it looks. A rugged
polycarbonate housing provides unsurpassed durability, including the ability to survive a 3 m drop. Inside, a field-proven integral
pump provides consistent gas flow without the problems of externally-attached components. Ergonomic design, glove-friendly
buttons, and high-contrast display make the ALTAIR 5X Multigas Detector easy to use in all applications.
Powered by Performance
Toughness and durability aren’t the whole story. The real strength of the ALTAIR 5X Multigas Detector comes from new sensor
technology. MSA XCell Sensors have a typical life of more than double the industry average, and are engineered using MSA’s
proprietary application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC) design. By miniaturizing the sensors’ controlling electronics and placing
them inside the sensor itself, MSA XCell Sensors offer superior stability, accuracy, and repeatability.
MSA XCell Sensors are a breakthrough in chemical and mechanical sensor design, enabling faster response and span calibration
times. With less time spent on calibration and bump tests, you save calibration gas, maintenance costs, and in turn, save money.
But most importantly, in your industry, saving seconds on response time can also mean saving lives.
In addition to MSA XCell Sensors, the ALTAIR 5X Multigas Detector can also be equipped with our wide variety of IR sensors
covering many gases and ranges including CO2.
Flexibility to Meet Your Needs
MSA’s ALTAIR 5X Multigas Detector provides many options to fit various applications. The detector is configurable with either a
high-resolution colour or monochrome LCD display with multilingual capabilities. MSA’s Logo Express® Service option is available
to customize the colour display. The detector is easily configurable with interchangeable plug-and-play sensor slots for MSA XCell
Sensors. Up to six gases can be monitored simultaneously.
Furthermore, this multigas detector offers optional glow-in-the-dark instrument housing for IR sensor-equipped units.
The ALTAIR 5X Multigas Detector’s lithium-ion battery lasts up to 20 hours, allowing it to be used over multiple shifts. An alkaline
battery pack is also available as an accessory. MSA’s ALTAIR 5X Multigas Detector is fully compatible with the MSA GALAXY®
Automated Test System and MSA Link Software.

MSA XCell Technology:
Save Time, Save Money, Save Lives
Building on years of sensor design experience,
MSA is revolutionizing sensor technology with
breakthroughs in design that improve
performance.
With reliable, extended-life XCell Sensors,
there’s no need to replace sensors after
two years.
• Typical life greater than four years for combustible, O2,
CO/H2S, and SO2 sensors
• New XCell exotic SO2, Cl2, and NH3 Sensors for expanded
monitoring applications
• Typical life greater than three years for NH3, and Cl2 sensors
• Sensor response and clear times in under 15 seconds
for most common sensor configurations
• Combustible sensor proprietary operating mode helps
it stand up to poisons over the life of the sensor
• Bump test in under 15 seconds for most common
sensor configurations
• End-of-sensor-life warning gives advanced notice to user,
reducing service outages
• Span calibration time of 60 seconds for most common
sensor configurations
Three-year back-to-back instrument warranty includes
CO/H2S/O2/LEL/SO2 and IR sensors
• Greater signal stability and repeatability under changing
or extreme environmental conditions
Two-year warranty on NH3 and Cl2 ; minimum 12-month
warranty on other sensors
• All XCell Sensors are capable of plug-and-play capabilities
for easy reconfiguration
ALTAIR® 5X
In connection with
alpha Personal Network
The Wireless USB option enables the integration of ALTAIR 5X
into the alpha Personal Network. This monitoring and alarm
system consists of modular and wireless components that can
be individually integrated to enhance your operation’s safety
and capability as needed. The ALTAIR 5X W-USB can monitor
operative personnel using breathing apparatus and portable gas
detection equipment while sending information to the central
control station alphaBASE. All gas readings and alarms can be
seen by incident command monitoring personnel in real time.
