HAZMATCAD™ and HAZMATCAD™ Plus
Hazardous Material Chemical Agent Detectors
The HAZMATCAD utilizes Surface Acoustic Wave (SAW) technology to
and classify trace amounts of Chemical Warfare Agents, including Nerve and
Blister agents. For maximum flexibility, the HAZMATCAD can also be
configured to detect Phosgene or Hydrogen Cyanide.
The HAZMATCAD Plus detects both Chemical Warfare Agents and selected
Toxic Industrial Chemicals (TICs). Combining proven SAW technology with
electrochemical sensors, the HAZMATCAD provides simultaneous detection of
Nerve and Blister agents, Hydrogen Cyanide, Phosgene, Hydride and Halogen
gases for a total of 6 discrete threat-detection capabilities.
Both units are ruggedly constructed, compact and lightweight. They are
also extremely easy to use, requiring no prior training. A single key
press begins automatic sampling and analysis.
The HAZMATCAD and HAZMATCAD Plus also feature:
• Audible and visual alarm messages provide clear and simple alarm
• Self-diagnostic check during rapid warm-up.
• Alphanumeric display with LED alarms.
• 8-12 hour operation with rechargeable Lithium Ion batteries.
• Vapor diffusion check source verifies system performance.
• RS 232 and IrDA communication ports, stores up to 8 hours of data.
• Inlet design protects against dust and particulate.
• Kits include a battery charger, belt clip, 2 Sony long-life Lithium Ion
rechargeable batteries, a waterproof carrying case, vapor check source and

MSA’s new ALTAIR 4 Multigas Detector for LEL, CO, H2S, and
O2 raises the standard for personal multigas detectors by offering a
combination of features you won’t find in competitive models.
The ALTAIR 4 Multigas Detector is the only portable gas detector with an
optional MotionAlert™ feature if a user should become disabled due to
unforeseen hazards. When enabled, the MotionAlert feature will activate if
the instrument does not detect motion for 30 seconds, and is ideal for
confined space entry applications. This unique gas detector function can be
deactivated by the user. This unit's InstantAlert feature also allows users
to manually alert others to a potentially hazardous situation. The ALTAIR 4
Multigas Detector is as tough and functional as it looks, offering
distinctly ribbed rubber housing for secure grip and unsurpassed durability.
A high-contrast display and three large, rubberized buttons enable easy
operation in low-light conditions.
The rubber over-molded housing is easy to grip, provides unsurpassed
durability, is rated IP67 against dust and water ingress, and passes a 10+
foot drop test. This unit is equipped with a 95+ dB audible alarm and
ultra-bright alarm LEDs on both its top and bottom for maximum visibility.
Vibrating alarm and data logging are standard features in this very
competitively-priced unit. MSA’s ALTAIR 4 Multigas Detector is Galaxy®
Systemcompatible for calibration and record keeping; a QuickCheck™ Test
Station for fast, easy bump testing is also available. Data logging is a
standard feature; the ALTAIR 4 Multigas Detector is MSA Link™
