Ventis MX4 Gas Monitor

The Ventis MX4 is a portable multi-gas monitor. When purchased as a diffusion monitor, it detects and measures gases present in open space. The Ventis MX4 is also offered as an aspirated monitor. A pump module and battery accessories enable the conversion of either monitor for dedicated use in either confined or open spaces. Based on the customer’s monitor order, up to four sensors are factory installed enabling the monitor to continuously and simultaneously detect and measure the presence of up to four specific gases.
