The MSA ALTAIR® 5X Multi-Gas Detector is durable, providing world-class impact resistance. The MSA ALTAIR® 5X Multi-Gas Detector excels within tough industrial environments without the worry of breaking a “delicate” instrument. Detector passes 10-ft. drop test and has third-party IP65 certification for dust and water ingress.
The MSA ALTAIR® 5X Multi-Gas Detector allows for industry-first LEL, O2, CO, H2S, and SO2 60-second span calibration and 10-second bump test time. Streamline your processes by eliminating an additional calibration step for the SO2 sensor. Spend less money on calibration gas for the most common 5-gas configuration on the market.
The MSA ALTAIR® 5X Multi-Gas Detector is equipped with internal integral pump. Integral pump with recessed inlet provides improved durability with fewer snag hazards.
The MSA ALTAIR® 5X Multi-Gas Detector is powered by the industry-leading MSA XCell® Sensor family. Typical cost savings of more than 50% on calibration gas, replacement sensors and maintenance. Typical decrease in
downtime of more than 50% while bump testing the instrument, waiting for gas response and waiting for the instrument to clear. Enhanced safety with industry-leading accuracy, repeat-ability and response times.
4-year expected sensor life on LEL, O2, CO, H2S, SO2, NO2, IR, and standard 3-year instrument warranty.

3-year expected sensor life on NH3, Cl2 and standard 2 year warranty.

Spend less money on replacement sensors and purchase replacement instruments less frequently. Spend less time maintaining instruments, more time using them.
Integrated PID sensor option for detection of VOCs. Allows users to use one instrument platform for standard gas detection and VOC applications. Compatible with GALAXY GX2 Test Stand and MSA Link Pro fleet management software.
The MSA ALTAIR® 5X Multi-Gas Detector provides 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.

Workers now have additional ways to call for help and send a warning.

Ideal for confined space applications when there is no direct line of sight.

Bluetooth® wireless is standard with every new MSA ALTAIR® 5X Multi-Gas Detector. Monitor gas readings and alarms remotely and configure instruments remotely using Android-based MSA App. Platform for Integration of gas detector data for first response, lone worker and custom system integration with multiple partners.
