Confined space entry measuring made simple and convenient

New multi-gas detector X-am 8000

The Dräger X-am 8000 measures up to seven toxic or flammable gases and vapours as well as oxygen simultaneously – in pump or diffusion mode. Comprehensive process safety is assured by a clear signalling concept and convenient assistant functions.

The X-am 8000 supports diverse typical applications offering specially developed assistant functions that guide the user through the process step by step. During confined space entry measuring, for example, the device calculates from parameters such as measurement gases, temperature limits and entered hose length the required flooding time for the probe used. Handy and robust, it can be intuitively operated via three function keys using only one hand.

The clearly arranged colour display shows all information in a well-legible way. In the event of an alarm, the device issues its warning via coloured alarm LEDs, a loud horn sound, and clearly perceptible vibration. In addition, the X-am 8000 is equipped with a powerful pump. It can be connected to hoses of up to 45 metres in length.

Changeover between diffusion and pump modes can easily be carried out anytime using a pump adapter. This makes sure that the pump is only operated when it is actually needed, saving energy, reducing wear and thus extending the service life of the pump.

Bluetooth technology supports customer processes

With the integrated optional Bluetooth interface, the X-am 8000 is more than just a measuring instrument. In combination with the upcoming Cloud and App solution, CSE Connect, it will be possible to manage and document measurement jobs and their results digitally.

Measuring of low hydrocarbon concentrations

For measuring of volatile hydrocarbons, the X-am 8000 can be fitted with one of two new highly efficient PID sensors. The PID HC covers a measuring range from 0 to 2,000 ppm (Isobutylene). The PID LC ppb is particularly suitable for a measuring range from 0 to 10 ppm (Isobutylene) with high resolution in the range below 1 ppm. For benzene-specific measurements, the X-am 8000 can be operated with a first tube. Users thus only need one device for this measurement, reducing the cost of device procurement, maintenance, and transport.

Robust and cost-efficient

Thanks to its compact and robust design, the device is able to withstand the most demanding conditions. For example, it is equipped with a shock detector. The results report indicates when mechanical impacts occurred that could lead to functional impairment of the device or of the sensors. These events are documented in the data memory. The inductive charging process makes for easier handling, increasing the longevity of the device. Display test and adjustment can easily and quickly be performed using the Dräger X-dock calibration station. The low test gas consumption keeps the operating costs low.
