RKI Instruments - GX-6000 Portable Multi Gas Monitor - DESCRIPTION

by RKI Instruments

The GX-6000 is a portable, sample-draw gas instrument capable of monitoring up to 6 gases simultaneously. In addition to the standard 4 confined space gases, including combustibles, O2, CO, and H2S, the GX-6000 has 2 additional smart channels that accept PID, IR, or super toxic sensors.

With a PID sensor installed, a library of over 600 VOC gases are available as standard. Choosing from the library is easy with a personalized favorites list of 30 commonly used VOC’s as well as a list of 8 of the most recently used. A benzene-specific version is available using a pre-filter tube for detecting low levels of benzene. Four PID sensors are available, 10.0 eV, 10.6 eV (low or high range), and 11.7 eV. Any combination of two PID sensors can be installed.

The instrument has a robust internal sample pump, a man-down alarm, a panic alarm, an LED flashlight, and a large auto rotating LCD display. It can operate as a single gas PID unit or a multifunctional tool utilizing all 6 channels.

A rugged design built for the nastiest environments comes equipped with a removable impact-resistant rubber boot and a dust and water-resistant enclosure with an IP-67 rating. Five bright LED lights on three sides of the instrument allow the user to view the alarms from various perspectives easily. The vibration and loud audible alarm of the GX-6000 will easily alert users when needed.
