Dräger has unveiled its X-am 2800 multi-gas detector for personal monitoring, which can measure up to four gasses and is equipped with the new shock resistant CatEx sensor.
Reliable warnings against gas-related hazards play an essential role in keeping people safe in the workplace. The new release detector simultaneously measures up to four gasses and has been optimized for use with the Dräger Gas Detection Connect software solution.
Users can choose sensors for flammable gases and vapors, as well as oxygen, carbon monoxide, hydrogen sulfide, nitrogen dioxide, and sulfur dioxide.
The X-am 2800 is optimized for use with the cloud-based software solution, Dräger Gas Detection Connect. The data recorded by the device can be transferred directly via Bluetooth to a smartphone, and then to the Dräger Gas Detection Connect Cloud.
For efficient fleet management, the data can also be transferred directly to Gas Detection Connect using the Dräger X-dock test station to give users secure access to the data at any time through an internet browser.
The newly engineered CatEx sensor is particularly shock resistant and can be configured for flammable vapors such as gasoline, diesel and nonane, or for gases like methane, propane and hydrogen. Moreover, the sensor is especially resistant to poisonous substances.
Sturdy design and easy to use
Because gas detectors are worn on the body, carrying comfort and robustness are just as important as reliability. Thanks to its small size and low weight, the X-am 2800 can be worn conveniently on a clip. Its large buttons make it easy to use while wearing gloves and the prominent display of the X-am 2800 features a language-free user interface and clearly shows important information such as gas readings, alarms and the time. Additionally, it is equipped with a green status light (D-light) to indicate when the unit is ready for use.
Approved for use in Ex zone 0, the X-am 2800 has also been tested according to protection class IP68. Confirmed by a drop test, it withstood a fall of more than 2 meters (6 feet) thanks to its resilient design.
Keep using existing accessories
Accessories from the Dräger X-am series are compatible with the X-am 2800, including the charger, X-dock station and calibration adapter. Dräger sensors and the rechargeable, easy-to-replace power supply ensure the device remains operational for many years. Moreover, the X-am 2800 was engineered with sustainability in mind.
The technical documentation and packaging have been designed to save paper, and the number of instruction manuals can be reduced when ordering two or more units in the modular version. Dräger ensures the proper recycling of disused devices.
The X-am 2800 is manufactured by Dräger Safety AG & Co. KGaA.
