IT’S WHAT’S
INSIDE THAT
COUNTS…
Because every life has a purpose…
Performance beyond what you see
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 that people
across the world can rely on. To that end, we’re proud to make available
for the workers all around the world the most advanced technology
available in any portable gas detector on the market: the ALTAIR 4X
Multi-Gas Detector with XCell Sensor Technology.
Built on Durability
The ALTAIR 4X Multi-Gas Detector measures up to four gases from a wide range of sensor options including LEL, O₂, CO, H₂S, NO₂ and
SO₂. It is as tough and functional as it looks. A rugged housing IP 67 (dust and water proof ) provides unsurpassed durability, including
the ability to withstand a 6 m drop onto concrete. And with large, glove-friendly buttons and a high-contrast display, the ALTAIR 4X
Multi-Gas 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 Multi-Gas Detector comes from the sensor
technology. MSA XCell Sensors are designed for an average 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 under extreme environmental conditions, accuracy and
repeatability.
MSA XCell Sensors are a breakthrough in chemical and mechanical sensor design, enabling faster response and 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
Exclusive safety features like MotionAlert and InstantAlert make the ALTAIR 4X Multi-Gas Detector ideal for applications like confined
space entry. The MotionAlert sensor 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, the InstantAlert feature enables users to manually alert others to potentially
hazardous situations.
The detector comes with a full three-year warranty, an entire year longer than the industry average, so you can depend on the
ALTAIR 4X Multi-Gas Detector to withstand the wear and tear that other portable gas detectors can’t.
The MSA Commitment
From the latest in sensor technology to instrument design and manufacturing, MSA has the capabilities and knowledge to support your
portable gas detection challenges.

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.
• Sensor response and clear times under 15 seconds
• Bump test under 15 seconds
• Span calibration time under 60 seconds
• Greater signal stability and repeatability under changing
or extreme environmental conditions
• The digital output of the sensors makes them much less
susceptible to RF interference
• Two-tox CO/H₂S sensor with virtually no cross-channel
interference
• Two-tox CO H₂-RES/H₂S sensor with very low
cross-sensitivity to Hydrogen <5%
• Two-tox CO/H₂S-LC sensor for better performance at
lower H₂S concentration
• First Two-tox CO/NO₂ and SO₂/H₂S-LC sensors with such
an extended typical life
With reliable, extended-life XCell Sensors, there’s no
need to replace sensors after two years.
• Typical life greater than four years
• Laser-welded sensor housings eliminate opportunities
for leaks
• Proprietary operating mode of the combustible sensor
helps it stand up to poisons over the life of the sensor
• End-of-sensor-life indicator gives advanced warning to
user, eliminating service outages
Technology That’s Tough
Life-Saving Performance
• Large buttons and a bright display enable quick and easy
operation even while wearing gloves
• If a user becomes disabled due to unforeseen hazards,
the MotionAlert sensor will activate after 30 seconds
• The InstantAlert feature enables users to manually alert
others of a dangerous situation with the push of a button
• Compatible with GALAXY GX2 Automated Test System
• MSA Link Software-ready
• Global approvals for worldwide acceptance
Lasting Durability
• Full three-year warranty supports the entire detector,
including the sensors and battery
• Withstands extreme impacts with rugged
polycarbonate housing
• Passes 6 m drop test
• The IP67-rated ALTAIR 4X is both dust tight and
water tight
