Keep Your Teams Even Safer

The new Draeger infrared sensors can be used for the measurement of explosive substances or CO2. For those applications where the reliable measurement of these substances is specifically needed, Draeger’s dual IR CO2/EX Sensor performs at its best. The innovative 2-in-1 design provides added protection and versatility by making room for an additional sensor.

The X-am 5600 protects against a full range of explosive gases by monitoring both hydrocarbons and hydrogen gas. By combining both infrared Ex and electrochemical mini H2 sensor technology, the Draeger X-am is able to measure hydrogen gas - something that can't be done with infrared technology alone.
