Dräger launches connected multi-gas detector

Draeger X-am 2800.

Dräger has launched a mobile gas detector, the X-am 2800 which connects with Dräger’s Gas Detection Connect cloud solution, to automate the real-time sharing of live data regarding gases firefighters are exposed to in emergency situations.

Users can choose from sensors for flammable gases and vapours, as well as oxygen, carbon monoxide, hydrogen sulphide, nitrogen dioxide and sulphur dioxide. Approved for use in Ex zone 0, a classified area in which an explosive gas atmosphere is present continuously or for long period, the X-am 2800 has been tested according to protection class IP68. The X-am 2800 features a newly engineered CatEX sensor, which has been independently drop test certified at a height of >2m, to ensure a robust and resilient design, critical in emergency rescue environments. 

With integrated Bluetooth connectivity, live gas readings and alerts that can be transferred in real-time to Dräger’s Gas Detection Connect cloud solution. This provides users with secure access to critical data at any time, from anywhere through an internet browser.

Efficient fleet management is provided by the cloud-connected Dräger X-dock test station, which automates the process of detector testing and calibration. All data on testing, calibration and device event history can be automatically transferred to Gas Detection Connect and reported on, supporting fire services to ensure service personnel equipment is consistent, reliable and accurate.
