GX-6000

The GX-6000 is a handheld 6-gas monitor with an active internal sampling pump. Sensors include the standard four confined space gases (combustibles, O2, CO, & H2S), and two additional smart channels that accept PID, IR or super toxic sensors. Equipped with a man-down alarm, a panic alarm, an LED flashlight, and large auto rotating LCD display, the GX-6000 can operate as a single gas PID unit or a multifunctional tool utilizing all 6 channels. The GX-6000 is equipped with a removable impact-resistant rubber boot .
