Sample Introduction
Vapor/Gas; Solid
Sensitivity/Detection Limits
ng; ppb; ppt
Known Interferents/Inhibitors
Testing at ECBC with the Sabre 2000 showed that the unit is susceptible to false positives in the presence of several tested interferents, including AFFF, bleach, fuels, cleaning products, and smokes. See the ECBC Report (August 2001) for details. The Sabre is also susceptible to overloading by high concentrations of target chemicals or interferents and must be baked out for 1 to 8 hr, depending on the degree of contamination, before it can be returned to service.
Start Up Time (From Cold Start To Sample Ready)
15 to 30 minutes
Response Time (Sample Application To Output)
15 to 30 seconds, depending on operating mode
Alarm Capability
Audible and visual, detected substance is indicated on panel display
Software Control
Unit is controlled by an on-board computer with color LCD display and four function buttons. Up to 200 analysis results can be stored directly on the unit and can be downloaded to a PC via RS-232 or USB port.
Other Operational Parameters
The user can select among four sets of operating parameters, called Control Parameter (CP) files: Explosives, Narcotics, CW-POS, and CW-NEG. Only one CP may be used at a time. Switching between CPs is straightforward but there may be up to a 1 to 5 minute delay for internal temperatures to stabilize to new settings.
