ABERDEEN, UK — Dräger Marine & Offshore has released a new mobile gas detector, the X-am 2800, to add to its extensive safety and gas detection portfolio.
Dräger has developed the device, which offers simultaneous measurement of up to four different gases, for application in confined spaces to safeguard employees working in areas at risk of oxygen depletion, explosive atmospheres or those where toxic substances may be present.
Having been tested in line with International Protection Rating Class 68, which measures the resistance of a device against dust and water, the X-am 2800 is able to withstand the harshest North Sea weather.
Mobile gas detectors are worn on the body, so robustness is key to their functioning reliability, and the X-am 2800 has been independently drop-tested to withstand a fall of more than 2 m on concrete—a result of its resilient design.
With integrated Bluetooth connectivity, live gas readings and alerts can be transferred in real time to Dräger’s Gas Detection Connect cloud solution, which provides users with secure access to critical data at any time, from anywhere.
Furthermore, efficient fleet management is provided by the cloud-connected Dräger X-dock test station, which automates the process of detector testing and calibration. All data on testing, calibration and device event history can be automatically transferred to Gas Detection Connect and reported on to ensure personnel equipment is consistent, reliable and accurate.
