This instrument is designed for outdoor environmental and construction site use where hydrocarbon-based volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and chemicals pose a toxic threat. The instrument has a measurement range of 0 to 5,000 parts per million (ppm). According to the manufacturer, the unit provides results in real time with a measurement response time of fewer than three seconds. The unit is waterproof for decontamination and suitable for use in humid conditions. It features a large, backlit graphical display for viewing in any light condition. The product also features a built-in flashlight for operation in dim environments. No tools are required to field service the PID lamp or sensor, or to replace batteries. The instrument includes a user interface configurable in 12 languages. The instrument uses standard alkaline AA batteries or optional rechargeable batteries.
