MSA Introduces the SOLARIS(TM) Multigas Detector
MSA has released the newest member of its Stellar® Series Portable Instrument product line: the Solaris Multigas Detector. The Solaris Multigas Detector is an economical 4-gas instrument providing simultaneous detection of CO, O2, H2S and combustible gas.
One of the smallest, lightest four-gas monitors on the market, the Solaris Multigas Detector is ergonomically designed and provides the best value in its class. Weighing less than 8 ounces, it is comfortable enough to be worn all day and provides reliable protection without interfering with the user's range of motion.
Encased in a rubberized armor that absorbs impact, the Solaris Multigas Detector is designed for the harshest industrial environments, with an IP 6/5 rating for superior protection against liquid and dust ingress. Easily configured to detect up to 4 gases simultaneously, the detector features a world-class triple alarm system with high-intensity, high-visibility alarm lights, an audible alarm of over 100 dB, and a strong vibrating alarm.
The versatile display features backlighting, providing exceptional contrast for easy reading in low-light conditions and from a variety of angles. An alphanumeric message bar displays commands in "plain English", easily guiding users through various instrument functions. Simple, intuitive calibration is accomplished with the push of a single button.
The Solaris Multigas Detector is powered with a rechargeable lithium ion battery that offers 14+ hours of continuous run time and outperforms other batteries in extreme environmental conditions. The battery fully recharges in under 4 hours and maintains over 80% of its original capacity after 500 recharge cycles. A charging cradle and power cord are included.
An optional powered sampling pump is contained within the sampling probe accessory. It can be used with up to 50 feet of tubing for remote sampling and includes an extensive filtering system to keep out liquid and particulate contaminants.
The Solaris Multigas Detector features an outstanding, 2-year all-inclusive warranty. It is ideal for use in confined spaces and other applications in chemical, construction, mining, petrochemical, telecommunications, utilities and other environments.
