MSA ALTAIR® Single-Gas Detector

MSA’s ALTAIR Single-Gas Detector provides over two years of maintenance-free performance (depending upon alarm minutes used). Long life, cost-effective single-gas detectors offer outstanding dust and water protection and feature a distinctive triple alarm system. Two bright LEDs and piercing audible alarm with standard vibrating alarm help to ensure that no alarm condition goes unnoticed. Rubberized armor housing and one-button operation provide durability and ease of use. Units will not deactivate after two years of operation; instead will perform as long as battery capacity and sensor performance allow. Built-in calibration feature enables users to potentially further extend instrument life. ALTAIR Single-Gas Detectors are part of MSA’s ALTAIR Detector family of products.

Maintenance-Free Service Life

Factory-calibrated detector provides warranted two-years or 1080 alarm minutes (18 hours) of service life with no maintenance. No sensor or battery changes are needed. Built-in gas delivery adapter means no misplaced accessories when conducting gas response tests, avoiding hidden replacement costs.


Bump Check Made Easy

By confirming Gas Test with a single button press, the unit allows for a simple bump check
to be recorded and displayed onscreen via a checkmark for 24 hours. This checkmark is confirmation of not only an electronic circuit check but also of sensor response. While it is only necessary to perform a bump test to ensure proper sensor response, ALTAIR Single-Gas Detector offers built-in calibration as required in some facilities.


Long-Life Battery

Long-life lithium battery offers significantly more capacity than its closest competitor and far outlasts the two minutes of alarm mode per day standard. ALTAIR Single-Gas Detector units will not deactivate after two years of operation but will continue to deliver performance as long as battery capacity and sensor performance allow. No other maintenance-free single-gas detector in its class can beat this performance.
