IT’S WHAT’S INSIDE THAT COUNTS
OUR VISION Of SAfETy Workers who face potentially dangerous situations deserve
the best protection available. At MSA, we work tirelessly to build smarter, better gas detection
instruments upon which people of the world rely. to that end, we’re proud to introduce
the most advanced technology available in any portable gas detector on the market:
the ALTAIR 4X Multigas Detector with XCell Sensor Technology.
Built on Durability
The ALTAIR 4X Multigas Detector for LEL, CO, H2S, and O2 is as tough and functional as it looks. Rugged housing
provides unsurpassed durability, including the ability to survive a 20-foot drop. And with large, glove-friendly
buttons and a high-contrast display, the ALTAIR 4X Multigas Detector is easy to operate in any work
environment, even low-light conditions.
Powered by Performance
Toughness and durability aren’t the whole story. The real strength of the ALTAIR 4X Multigas Detector comes from new sensor
technology. MSA XCell Sensors have a typical life of more than four years, 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.
Count on the ALTAIR 4X Multigas Detector
Exclusive safety features such as MotionAlert™ and InstantAlert™ features make the ALTAIR 4X Multigas Detector ideal for
applications such as confined space entry. MotionAlert feature activates when a user becomes disabled and motionless, quickly
alerting others to the disabled user’s location. And with a simple push of a button, InstantAlert feature enables users to
manually alert others to potentially hazardous situations.
The ALTAIR 4X Multigas Detector outlasts the competition. To prove it, the instrument comes with a full three-year warranty,
an entire year longer than the industry average, so you can depend upon the ALTAIR 4X Multigas Detector to withstand the
wear and tear that other portable gas detectors can’t.

Multigas Detector
With MSA XCell™ Sensor Technology
Frequently Asked Questions
1
The ALTAIR 4X Multigas Detector uses the NEW MSA XCell
Sensors. Aren’t all electrochemical and catalytic bead
sensors basically the same?
In recent years MSA has developed its own sensor ASIC. This chip
contains a microprocessor, all circuits to drive and compensate the
sensor, and a digital signal converter.
All sensors are not the same. Sensors are the heart of an instrument;
sensor performance can vary greatly depending upon manufacturer.
Most multigas detectors use the same sensors from the same few
global suppliers. MSA has designed a superior gas detection sensor
platform specifically optimized for MSA gas detectors. MSA XCell
Sensors are designed for longer life, faster response, and higher
performance when used with MSA’s ALTAIR 4X Multigas
Detector.
Every MSA XCell Sensor contains an ASIC. This chip is much more
than a smart sensor; digital XCell Sensors perform real-time
environmental corrections and provide plug-and-play capabilities,
greater RF immunity, and a higher overall performance level. Due
to digital output, this sensor is not backwards-compatible with
older MSA instruments, but instead establishes MSA’s future
product platform.
MSA has designed and manufactured gas detection
sensors and instruments for decades. Our experts
are there to support you with any product or
application concerns, allowing you to
focus on your core business.
I read that every MSA
XCell Sensor is built with
an embedded application
specific integrated circuit
(ASIC). What is an ASIC and
why is it important?
2
An ASIC is a microchip specifically
designed for one application.
ASIC's are most commonly
associated with consumer
electronics that have been greatly
reduced in size over the years
(i.e. cellular phones). In ASIC
development a complete
electronic circuit with multiple
larger components is reduced to
one tiny microchip dedicated
to a specific purpose, such as
sensor control.
Historically, oxygen (O2) sensor
technology is seen as a weak
link and the first to die in every instrument.
How does MSA’s XCell O2 Sensor
actually achieve a typical
lifespan of more than
four-years?
3
Most O2 sensors on the
market today use a
consumable chemical
reaction where a piece of lead is
consumed and converted to
lead oxide. These sensors have a
very finite life. Once enough
lead is gone, the sensor stops
working.
The MSA XCell O2 Sensor uses a
non-consumable chemical
reaction. O2 is converted to
water and then back to O2. The
sensor does not “use itself up”
each time it sees O2, generating a
much longer shelf-life and
overall lifespan.
Catalytic bead sensors can be poisoned over time by
silicone, sulfur, and lead compounds. How does MSA
achieve a typical four-year lifespan with XCell Ex Sensor?
Does this sensor offer more poison resistance?
4
While XCell Ex Sensors provide greatly-improved
poison resistance, this feature alone does not
provide a four-year lifespan. The XCell Sensor
actually uses two separate detectors inside the
sensor. The design is such that only
one inner detector can be
actively poisoned at a time,
effectively doubling useful
sensor life.
How does the ALTAIR 4X
Detector end-of-sensor-life
warning and indicator work?
5
Following each calibration, a
software algorithm calculates the
approximate life remaining for
each sensor. When it is determined
that the sensor is nearing its endof-life, the instrument displays the
end-of-life warning for that
particular sensor. Users are given
advanced notice (four to six weeks,
typical use) that a sensor is nearing
its end of life to plan for
replacement. The instrument and
sensor can continue to be used
after the end-of-sensor-life
warning as long as regular bump
tests are passed.

a general description of the products

capabilities are described, under no

If sensor output during calibration is too low, the unit will fail
calibration and the end-of-sensor-life indicator will be displayed on
the instrument screen. This tells the user that the end of the sensor’s
useful life has been reached and that the instrument should
not be used until the sensor is replaced.
6
How does the ALTAIR 4X Detector save
me money on calibration gas costs?
Calibration gas is expensive;
the ALTAIR 4X Detector uses
much less calibration gas
due to faster-performing
sensors and lower required
gas flow rate during
calibration and bump testing.
MSA uses a standard 0.25 lpm
gas flow rate for calibrations and
bump tests. Most competitors
use 0.5 lpm regulators which
consume twice the calibration
gas as the ALTAIR 4X Detector.
Also, faster sensors mean faster
span calibration and bump tests.
If all of your bump tests and span
calibrations are a third faster,
then you’ll use a third less gas
over the life of the instrument.
The ALTAIR 4X Detector has a
60-second span calibration time
and <15-second bump test time.
Based upon these facts, you’ll
save hundreds of dollars over
the life of each instrument.

F E AT U R E S
BENEFITS
The Altair 4X Detector
is powered by the new
MSA XCell™ Sensor family
Typical cost savings of over 50% on calibration gas, replacement sensors, and
maintenance. Typical decrease in downtime of over 50% while bump testing the
instrument, waiting for a gas response, and waiting for the instrument to clear.
Enhanced safety with industry-leading accuracy, repeatability, and response times.
4-year expected sensor life and standard
3-year instrument warranty
Spend less money on replacement sensors and purchase replacement instruments less frequently.
Spend less time maintaining instruments, more time using them.
The Altair 4X Detector provides an industry-exclusive
end-of-sensor-life warning
Use this early warning feature to save money and aggravation by reducing instrument downtime and sensor inventory.
MotionAlert™ feature - "man-down" alarm
InstantAlert™ feature - manual alarm
You and your fellow workers now have additional ways to call for help and send out a warning.
Ideal for confined space applications when there is no direct line of sight.
The Altair 4X Detector is durable - providing industryleading water, dust, and impact resistance
You can rely on the Altair 4X Detector to perform in a tough industrial environment
without worrying about breaking a "delicate" instrument.
The Altair 4X Detector runs for over 24 hours
on a single charge
Save money; the 24-hour run time and quick charge times means you can buy fewer instruments to cover longer shifts.
