Chip Measurement System
The CMS combines substance specific measuring Chips with an electronic based Analyzer for an easy to use spot-measurement system.
The Draeger CMS is ready for use after only a brief instruction. It makes no difference which gas or vapor you wish to measure – the instrument is used in the same way every time. The operation is guided by a menu on the display and a single button/switch. The display can be backlit. After an automatic system self-test, the analyzer is powered up and the measurement system is immediately ready for operation. Simply insert the chip, perform the measurement and read the measurement result displayed as a concentration on the screen. At the end of the measurement, the chip is automatically ejected from the instrument, and the analyzer shuts down. An audible signal sounds after each operating step. Power is supplied by 4 standard and easily replaceable batteries which are especially suited to the analyzer’s requirement. The battery capacity allows for more then 7 hours of measurement and is display on the screen.
The principle of mass current measurement ensures that the instrument remains unaffected by fluctuations in air pressure. Because the chips are calibrated before leaving the factory, there is no need for the user to calibrate the CMS. Any possible temperature and humidity effects are checked during factory calibration. The analyzer is explosion protected and certified in accordance with UL, UL/CAS and Cenelec. In addition, the system is protected against dust and splash water in accordance with IP54 and is resistant to electromagnetic waves.
To allow measurement at places which are difficult to access, a remote system is available. This comprises of an additional pump and extension hose is is connected to the back of the analyzer. Because the remote system is activated by its own switch, the system can remain attached to the analyzer. A telescopic probe can also be attached to the remote system.
A kit for emergency response is now available. It includes an analyzer, remote system, telescopic probe, 10 chips, flashlight/lantern, notepad and a chip case. Note: Chips marked with a (*) are included with this kit.

Brand: Chip Measurement System
The world's only Chip Measurement System (CMS) makes spot measurements as easy as 1, 2, 3: insert chip - start measurement-read measurement result on the LCD display. The Draeger CMS combines the advantages of Draeger Tubes with those of an optoelectronic analysis system. Two components define the system: the analyzer and the substance specific chip.
