Dräger promotes new X-am 8000 gaz detection device at Milipol 2017

Clearance measurement was never this easy and convenient: the new X-am 8000 device unveiled by Dräger at Milipol 2017 in Paris measures up to seven toxic as well as flammable gases, vapors and oxygen all at once — either in pump or diffusion mode. Innovative signaling design and handy assistant functions ensure complete safety throughout the process.

The X-am 8000 is Dräger’s NEW 7 gas Multi-gas detector. The X-am 8000 can be outfitted with multiple sensors for the detection of combustible and toxic gases and vapors and NOW also a PID.

The Dräger X-am 8000 is equipped with a very powerful pump. It can be connected with hoses of up to 45 meters in length. A pump adapter makes it easy to switch between diffusion and pump mode at any time.

This means the pump is only operated when you actually need it. That saves energy, reduces wear and tear, and thereby extends the lifespan of the pump.

Handy and durable, the Dräger X-am 8000 is intuitive to operate single handedly using three function keys.

The easy-to-read color display clearly lays out all the information for you.

Standard accessories include a sturdy shoulder strap, so you can comfortably carry the X-am 8000. Thanks to its compact and robust construction, the device can withstand even the harshest conditions.

The Dräger X-am 8000 is perfect for the measurement of volatile organic compounds (VOCs), it uses photo ionization detection (PID) technology for this measurement.

The X-am 8000 effectively supports various applications with specially developed assistant functions that guide you through each process step by step. During clearance measurement, for example, the smart assistant calculates the necessary flooding time for the device and probe (FKM hose) based on parameters such as measuring gases, temperature limits, and the indicated hose length.

When monitoring for high methane concentrations, an optional automatic measurement range switch makes it easier to take a reading: if the Cat-Ex sensor measures values above 100% LEL, the display switches to the range of 0 to 100 vol %.

An additional useful tool is CSE Connect. It combines an Android app, specially designed for the X-am 8000, with a cloud-computing solution. Measuring jobs can be quickly and easily transferred to the app using an online application. An optional Bluetooth module in the Dräger X-am 8000 enables measured values to be transferred automatically to the CSE Connect app. You can also easily and conveniently use the app to create measurement reports. This saves time and helps you manage your measuring tasks during clearance measurements more efficiently.

The state-of-the-art PID technology is both exceptionally sensitive and tough. The quick response time is great for leak inspection. It also permits the atmosphere above contaminated ground or liquids to be screened, as well as exhaust measurements from enclosed spaces.

The signal system of the Dräger X-am 8000 is based on a clear color code:
‒ Red light = gas alarm
‒ Yellow light = device-related alarm, e.g. low battery
‒ Green light = device is ready for use

The green glow of the D-light allows you to see from a distance whether the device has been properly tested and is ready for use.

In case of an alarm, the X-am 8000 alerts you with colorful alarm LEDs, a loud horn (100 dB(A) at a distance of 30 cm), and clearly palpable vibration. Optionally, four preset hazard symbols are available for the display which explicitly indicates the presence of explosive or toxic gas hazards, for example. This allows the user to easily recognize the type of hazard based purely on the symbol displayed.

The X-am 8000 is equipped with an impact detection system. The event report indicates whenever severe mechanical impacts have occurred that might result in functional impairments of the device or the sensors.
