X-am 5100 Portable Exotic Gas Detector

The X-am 5100 portable exotic gas detector accurately detects the presence of very special gases such as hydrazine (N2H4), hydrogen bromide (HBr), hydrogen chloride (HCl), hydrogen fluoride (HF), hydrogen peroxide (H2O2), nitric acid (HNO3), phosphoryle tetrachloride (POCl3) or phosphorus tetrachloride (PCl3).

  • Exotic gas detector for the detection of H2O2, HBr, HCl, HF, HNO3, N2H4, PCl3 or POCl3
  • Lightweight (220g), robust, insensitive to electromagnetic radiation
  • Large backlit LCD and intuitive 2-button user interface
  • Powerful 90dB audible alarm, flashing LED light, and vibrating alarm
  • Compatible with the Dräger X-zone 5500 area monitor
Additional information

Primarily designed for use in petroleum product manufacturing, packaging sanitization, corrosion protection, or even space shuttle fuel production, the X-am 5100 portable exotic gas detector combines fast and accurate measurements for monitoring reactive gases.

This portable gas detector - lightweight and conveniently sized like a smartphone - offers unparalleled convenience with its ergonomic two-button control panel, intuitive menu navigation, and large backlit LCD. It emits three kinds of alarms: luminous with its two powerful 360° flashing LEDs, 90dB multi-tone sound, and vibrating.

Its robust integrated rubber housing is IP54 certified and helps use it in harsh environments with a temperature range of -20 to 50°C and relative humidity of 10 to 90%. It is resistant to shock and electromagnetic radiation. It can be easily worn near the respiratory tract thanks to its alligator clip, allowing concentration measurements as close as possible to those inhaled by the user.

The X-am 5100 gas detector is available in three versions. The first version operates with a rechargeable Nimh battery providing about 150 hours of autonomy. The second one runs with a rechargeable Nimh long-life battery that provides approximately 180 hours of operating time. Finally, a third version works with alkaline batteries that provide an operating time of about 150 hours.

Its integrated data logger allows it to store more than 100 hours of data at one-minute intervals. Then this data can be viewed or transferred to a computer via its infrared interface.

The X-am 5100 portable exotic gas detector can be combined with the Dräger X-zone 5500 monitor to perform area monitoring. Up to 25 X-zone, 5500 beacons can be interconnected to form a wireless perimeter surveillance. Continuous monitoring of large areas of gas pipes or tanks, for example, during industrial shutdowns, can be performed.
