ALTAIR® 4X Multi-Gas Detector with MSA XCell® Sensor Technology 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.
