Microtector II G460
The Microtector II G460 was developed specifically for personal protection against gas dangers. Its sturdy design allows for it to be used in numerous areas of application, such as the steel industry, refineries, sewer construction or fire departments. The compact multi-gas detector monitors up to seven gases simultaneously. For this purpose, the G460 is equipped with a catalytic combustion sensor for combustible gases and vapors (0 to 100 % LEL), an infrared sensor (NDIR) and 3 electrochemical sensors for toxic gases as well as oxygen. One of the EC sensors can also be replaced by a PID sensor for monitoring volatile organic compounds (VOCs).
The Microtector II G460 simultaneously monitors seven gases such as methane, propane, carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, hydrogen sulfide, hydrogen and VOCs. The selection of different long-life sensors we have available for the multi-gas detector make it a versatile and reliable companion for daily work in environments with potential gas dangers. An optional electric pump can also be attached to clear confined spaces and containers from a safe distance.
Safety and operation
The Microtector II G460 is certified for use up to Ex zone 1 and in hazardous areas in mining (M1). Additionally, it is protected against the ingress of water and dust according to protection class IP67, making the 7-gas detection device suitable even for demanding applications. The housing made of rubberized polycarbonate protects the device from shocks and vibrations. Its award-winning design, low weight and convenient crocodile clip ensure high wearing comfort. The device is operated using only three buttons and the color-backlit display. For better usability, the screen can be rotated by 180 degrees if the situation requires it. An optional battery module with an explosion-proof flashlight is also available for low-light conditions.
Alarm and battery life
If a threshold is exceeded, the G460 will warn its wearer in three different ways: using a light signal, a loud horn (103 db(A)) and vibration (optional). It has an operating time of up to 170 hours, depending on the battery module (NiMH or alkaline), as well as the operating mode and sensor equipment. The optional pump has its own power supply and therefore does not shorten the unit's lifetime. For intake distances of up to 100 meters, the pump has a continuous operation time of up to 10 hours.
The DS400 docking station can be used to charge, calibrate and adjust the G460 multi-gas detector. The G400-MP2 smart pump can be attached for clearing confined spaces. In addition to charging and calibrating, the smart charger cap allows the data logger's recordings to be transferred to the PC.
