Dräger, which has over 100 years of expertise in gas detection, has developed the new device, which offers simultaneous measurement of up to four different gases, for application in confined spaces to protect employees working in areas at risk of oxygen depletion, explosive atmospheres, or where toxic substances may be present.

Mobile gas detectors are worn on the body, so ruggedness is key to their reliable operation and the X-am 2800 has been independently tested to withstand a drop of more than two meters onto concrete: a result of its resistant design.

Another key benefit of the X-am 2800 is its ability to be used in wet environments and as part of its development the X-am has been tested to International Protection Class 68 which measures the resistance of a device against dust and water. This makes it particularly useful for utilities and energy industries, and when combined with support and service offerings, the X-am provides a total mobile gas solution.

Additionally, efficient fleet management is provided by the cloud-connected Dräger X-dock test station, which automates the process of testing and calibrating the detector. All device test, calibration, and event history data can be automatically transferred to Gas Detection Connect and reported on to ensure personnel equipment is consistent, reliable, and accurate.
