Gas Tracer

The Gas Tracer is a 5-sensor monitor with a built in sample pump that can monitor the standard gas safety hazards for gas/pipeline operations, (LEL combustibles, Oxygen content, and Carbon Monoxide). IT has a ppm CH4 leak tracker mode and it can measure 100% volume Methane and dynamically display either % LEL, or % volume with its auto-ranging ability. The Gas Tracer continuously self-checks for sensor connections, low battery, circuit trouble, low flow, and calibration errors.
