VP5 PID VOC Portable detector (volatile organic compounds)

The VP5 PID is a VOC portable detector (Volatile Organic Compounds) equipped with a 10.6 eV photoionization lamp. The clip-on sampling allowes it to be used in diffusion or sampling mode up to 30 meters. In addition to its gas detection capabilities, it incorporates PTI features such as a man-down alarm and an imminent danger alert button.

  • Detection of many volatile organic compounds (VOCs) based on a 10.6 eV photoionization lamp (PID lamp)
  • Built-in PTI (Protection of the lone worker) functions with "dead man alarm" and "panic button"
  • Rugged, shockproof, and water and dust-resistant (IP68)
  • Data logger and event logger for analysis and reporting
  • ATEX, IECEx, CSA & CE certifications
Additional information

The VP5 PID VOC portable detector is a variation of the Ventis Pro5 gas detector. It can be fitted with up to 3 additional sensors, making it a multi-gas detector. The other available cells are explosive gases (hydrocarbons, solvents, alcohols), Cl2, CO, CO/H2S (combined cell), SO2, H2S, HCN, NO2, NH3, O2, PH3, and SO2. A 5-gas detector - the smallest on the market - can be configured with the combined CO/H2S sensor.

The VSP Clip-On Pump is a useful and convenient accessory for operators using mainly the VP5 PID detector for personal protection and requiring a gas sampling pump for sampling or before entering a confined space. No tools are necessary to connect or remove the pump to the monitor.

The VP5 PID VOC portable monitor is equipped with many safety features such as a PASS (Personal Alert Safety System) and a "Panic" button to alert teams quickly in case of emergency. In order to have a good interpretation of alarms and hazards, clear and programmable action messages are displayed at startup or in case of pre-alarm like "Ventilate" or "Evacuate".

The LENS™ Wireless technology available with VP5 PID VOC detectors provides a new approach to overall safety for individuals in hostile environments. These devices can communicate with each other remotely and wirelessly. In the event of an alarm, all individuals with connected equipment are alerted in real-time for a faster and safer response to major hazards.
