Draeger X-am 8000 Gas Detector With PID

The Draeger X-am 8000 gas detector measures up to 7 toxic as well as flammable gases, vapors and oxygen all at once – either in pump or diffusion mode. Innovative signaling design and handy assistant functions ensure complete safety throughout the process.  The Draeger X-am 8000 is equipped with a very powerful internal pump. It can be connected with hoses up to 45 meters in length. 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 8000 is intuitive to operate single handedly using three function keys. The easy to read color display clearly lays out all the information for you. Standard accessories include a sturdy shoulder strap, so you can comfortably carry the X-am 8000. thanks to its compact and robust construction, the device can withstand even the harshest conditions.

The X-am 8000 effectively supports various applications with specially developed assistant functions that guide you through each process step by step. During clearance measurement, for example, the smart assistant calculates gases, temperature limits and the indicated hose length. When monitoring for high methane concentrations, a configurable automatic measurement range switch makes it easier to take a reading: if the Cat-Ex sensor measures values above 100% LEL, the display switches to the range of 0 to 100% Vol.

The signal system of the X-am 8000 is based on a clear color code:

  • Red light = gas alarm
  • Yellow light = device related alarm, e.g. 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 for use. In case of an alarm, the X-am 8000 gas detector alerts you with colorful alarms LEDs, a loud horn (100 dB(A) at a distance of 30 cm) and clearly palpable vibration. Optionally, four preset hazards symbols are available for the display which explicitly indicate the presence of explosive or toxic gas hazards. This allows the user to easily recognize the type of hazard based purely on the symbol displayed.

The X-am 8000 is equipped with a shock detection system. The event report indicates whenever severe mechanical impacts have occurred that might result in functional impairments of the device or the sensors. There are also documented in the data logger.

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

To measure had to detect hydrocarbons, you can fit the Draeger X-am 8000 with one of two high performance PID sensors. The PID HC covers a measurement range of 0-2,000 ppm. The PID LC ppb is particularly suited for a measurement range of 0-10 ppm with a resolution range below 1 ppm. For benzene specific measurements, the X-am 8000 can be used with a pre-tube. The advantage: you only need one measuring device for this application, which significantly reduces the costs of purchasing and maintaining and transporting devices in use. The use of the pre-tubes is supported by a built in assistant.

The X-am 8000 features inductive charging. 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) an measure at the same time, e.g. when in use inside vehicles or machinery. The charging cradles can connect with one another, taking up minimal space and are compatible with existing X-am series cradles.
