Draeger X-am 3500 Multi Gas Detector


This item is no longer available from AFC International, please contact us for suitable replacements.

The Draeger X-am 3500 Gas Detector was especially designed for clearance measurements and personnel monitoring applications. The 1 to 4 gas detector reliably detects flammable gases and vapors as well as oxygen, carbon monoxide, hydrogen sulfide, nitrogen dioxide, and sulfur dioxide. The innovative signaling design and extensive range of accessories ensure optimum safety and easy handling.

The X-am 3500 is equipped with a very powerful pump. It can be connected with hoses up to 147′. A pump  adapter makes it easy to switch between diffusion and pump mode at any time. This means the pump is only operated when you actually need it. That saves energy, reduces wear and tear and thereby extends the lifespan of the pump. Handy and durable the Draeger X-am 3500 is intuitive to operate with one handed operation using three function keys. The easy to read color display clearly lays out all the information for you. Thanks to its compact and robust construction, the device can withstand even the harshest conditions.

The single system of this detector is based on a clear color code, in accordance with the requirement of EN 60079-29-1, EN 45544-1 an EN 50104:

  • Red light = gas alarm
  • Yellow light = device related alarm, eg low battery
  • Green light = device is ready for use

The green glow of the D-light allows you to see from a distance whether the device has been properly tested and is ready to use. In case of an alarm, the X-am 3500 alerts you with colorful LEDs, a loud horn (100 dBA) at a distance of 1′ and clearly noticeable vibration. Four preset hazard symbols are available as an option for the display which explicitly indicates the presence of explosive or toxic gas hazards. This allows the uer to easily recognize the type of hazard based purely on the symbol displayed.

Bump tests and calibrations are carried out simply and quickly using the Draeger X-Dock calibration station. It slow test gas consumption keeps operating cost to a minimum. Its reporting function and numerous other useful features make the -ock Manager PC software a smart addition to any fleet management operation. To identify the devices in the fleet, you can either use barcodes or an integrated RFID transponder.

The X-am 3500 features inductive changing. This makes it easier to operate and increases the lifespan of the device. Issues like corrosion and contact problems in the charging cradle are a thing of the past. You can charge (outside of explosion hazard zones) and measure simultaneously when in use inside vehicles or on machinery. The charging cradles can connect with one another, taking up minimal space and are compatible with existing Draeger X-am series cradles.
