IT’S WHAT’S INSIDE THAT COUNTS
WORKERS who face potentially hazardous 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. First we introduced MSA’s advanced technology with the ALTAIR 4X Multigas Detector
with XCell Sensors. Now we’re proud to offer the most advanced sensor technology available in a
six-gas portable instrument:
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 10-foot 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 for 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 sensor 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 color or monochrome LCD display with multilingual capabilities. MSA’s Logo Express® Service option is available to
customize the color 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 GX2 Automated Test
System and MSA Link™ Pro and MSA Link Software.

THE MSA COMMITMENT.
FROM THE LATEST IN SENSOR TECHNOLOGY TO INSTRUMENT DESIGN AND MANUFACTURING,
MSA HAS THE CAPABILITIES AND EXPERTISE TO SUPPORT YOUR PORTABLE GAS DETECTION CHALLENGES.
MSA XCell Technology:
Save Time, Save Money, Save Lives
Building on years of sensor design experience,
MSA has revolutionized sensor technology
with design breakthroughs that improve
performance.
• New XCell exotic SO2, Cl2 and NH3 Sensors for expanded
monitoring applications
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
• Typical life greater than three years for NH3 and Cl2 sensors
• Sensor response and clear times in less than 15 seconds
for most common sensor configurations
• Combustible sensor proprietary operating mode helps
poison-resistance over the life of the sensor
• Bump test in less than 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
Count on the ALTAIR 5X Detector
Exclusive MotionAlert™ and InstantAlert™ features make the ALTAIR
5X Multigas Detector ideal for applications such as confined space
monitoring . 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 5X 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 that you can depend upon the ALTAIR 5X Multigas
Detector to withstand the wear and tear that other portable
gas detectors can’t.
* Three-year warranty is for most common sensor configurations.
Online Training and Product Simulation
“ The three-year warranty is huge.”
