Biosystems Introduces New MultiPro Multi-Gas Detector

October 6, 2004

Health & Safety

— Continues the high performance, miniature-sized and economically priced tradition
of the “Pro” series.

Smithfield, RI — The new MultiPro multi-gas detector from Biosystems provides real time readings of up to four gases with one button operation. An easy-to-read, backlit LCD display mounted on the front of the unit simultaneously shows readings for all gases being monitored, and both audible and visual alarms ensure optimum safety.

MultiPro’s single “Mode” button controls all operations, including auto calibration. The unit features a Calibration Due reminder and Sensor Span Reserve indicators for predictive maintenance. For maximum convenience and efficiency, all sensors are field replaceable.

Unique dual-channel sensor technology allows the MultiPro to provide up to four channels of detection with just three sensors. The unit includes O2 and LEL sensorsand choice of either a dedicated CO or H2S sensor, or a Duo-Tox sensor that measures both CO and H2S simultaneously. By combining two toxic gas sensors in a single sensor housing, the Duo-Tox sensor monitors for both carbon monoxide and hydrogen sulfide without cross interference, making it ideal for applications in which both hazards are simultaneously present.

The MultiPro detector offers visual and audible notification for Warning, Danger, STEL, and TWA alarms. A bright red LED alarm is visible from the top and sides of the instrument, and a two-tone audible alarm registers at 92 decibels at one foot. A vibrating alarm is included for use in high noise applications.

The MultiPro’s Event Logger stores max and average readings, as well as time and duration for up to 20 events. A standard black box recorder provides over 40 hours of storage, automatically retaining the most recent calibration date and time, and can be upgraded to a full datalogger. The unit is equipped with a wireless IrDA port for communication with PCs, and is compatible with Biosystems’ BioTrak(tm) software.

Constructed of a polycarbonate housing with a tough rubber overmold, the MultiPro gas detector is rugged enough to withstand harsh environments. It is resistant to Radio Frequency Interference (RFI), and complies with IEC 1000-4-3 for level 3 RFI test.

Also available with the MultiPro multiple gas confined space gas detector is an optional, software controlled, motorized sample draw pump. Powered by the MultiPro battery, the pump performs an automatic leak test before every use, and an automatic low flow alarm signals users if the pump becomes blocked.

The detector is available with interchangeable alkaline and rechargeable Lithium Ion (Li-Ion) battery packs. The alkaline battery offers 16 hours of run time, 12 hours when operating with the pump, while the Li-Ion battery runs 24 hours, 14 with pump. The Li-Ion battery recharges in less than 5 hours.

Biosystems’ MultiPro gas detector comes standard with a calibration adapter and belt clip, as well as a reference manual, laminated quick reference card and training CD-ROM. The rechargeable Li-Ion version also includes a charger. Confined Space Kits and Value Packs are available.
