The GX-8000 sets the new industry standard for rugged, reliable portable gas detection. It's tough, water proof design utilized features based on years of gas detection design experience, to assure that the instrument will operate property to protect workers and property in all kinds of harsh gas detection applications.
This highly accurate Optical Gas Indicator is customizable for up to 8 gases and ranges, and uses optical interferometry to acuratley measure a gas concentration in a known base gas, such as air.
Because the principle operation is the comparison of the optical refractive index of a gas, there are no moving parts or problems with sensor drift. This gives a stable calibration, allowing for long periods between calibration, thus saving on maintenance cost.
