Simply put, the GX-6000 natural gas detector is a game-changer. This powerful hand-held instrument is capable of simultaneously monitoring up to 6 gases.

In addition to the standard 4 confined space gases which include combustibles, O2, CO, & H2S, the GX-6000 natural gas detector has 2 additional smart channels that accept PID, IR or super toxic sensors.

Equipped with a strong internal sample pump, 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 with a PID sensor will come equipped with a library of over 600 VOC gases to choose from as standard. Choosing from the library is easy with a personalized favorites list of 30 commonly used VOC’s as well as a list of 8 of the most recently used VOC’s. A benzene-specific version is available using a pre-filter tube for detecting low levels of benzene.

The GX-6000 Natural gas detector has a rugged design built for the nastiest environments. It is equipped with a removable impact-resistant rubber boot and a dust and water-resistant enclosure with an IP-67 rating. With 5 bright LED lights on 3 sides of the instrument, alarms are easily seen from a variety of perspectives. With vibration and loud audible alarm, GX-6000 will easily alert users when needed.

QUICK TIP:
Responding to Alarms
This section describes the response to gas, over the range, battery, sensor failure, clock failure,
system failure, man down, and panic alarms.
Responding to Gas Alarms
1 . Determine which gas alarm has been activated.
2 . Follow your established procedure for an increasing gas condition or a decreasing
oxygen condition.
3 . Reset or silence the alarm as necessary or allowed. Table 7 below summarizes
resetting and silencing alarms for all ALARM LATCHING and ALARM
SILENCE combinations that are possible. See pg.151 and pg.151 of the manual for further
descriptions of these parameters.
