The Draeger X-am 5600 is said to be the smallest portable gas detection instrument for the measurement of up to six gases.  With an ergonomic mobile phone design, it features innovative infrared (IR) sensor technology and measures explosive, combustible and toxic gases and vapours, as well as oxygen.

Light yet robust, the detector is designed for single-handed operation in tough industrial environments and is ATEX approved for use in explosive areas classified as Zone 0. 

By using a combination of innovative Draeger IR sensors and the latest Draeger XXS miniaturised electrochemical sensors, the Draeger X-am 5600 can detect a variety of hazards.  These include O2, CO, H2S, H2 , CO2, Cl2, HCN, NH3, NO, NO2, PH3, SO2 and organic vapours.  

Immune to poisons such as hydrogen sulphide (H2S), Draeger IR sensors are said to ensure dependable warnings against explosive and combustible hazards such as hydrocarbons and carbon dioxide.  Offering a low cost of ownership, they offer an extended sensor life of up to eight years, twice as long as catalytic Ex sensors.  In addition, they only require calibration every 12 months and, as a result, significantly reducing maintenance costs. 

Designed with safety in mind, the Draeger X-am 5600 features gas inlets on both the top and front to ensure reliable warning of a hazard, even if a gas inlet is accidentally covered or it is inadvertently placed inside a jacket pocket.  A large illuminated display means that readings can be seen at a glance and retro-reflective panels ensure easy location in the dark or in water. With a clear 360° visual alarm, the unit automatically emits vibrating and multi-tone audible alarms as soon as a gas is detected. Equipped with a data logger, the unit also allows data to a PC for analysis.
