The G888C is a compact and versatile multi-gas detector designed for personal protection and safe operation in confined spaces and shafts. It combines the features of a modern multi-gas detector with a compact design, making it suitable for use in challenging environments.
Equipped with a heat tone sensor for combustible gases, an infrared sensor for CO2, and three electrochemical sensors for toxic gases and oxygen, the G888C offers comprehensive gas detection capabilities. It can detect up to seven combustible and toxic gases, providing reliable protection against a wide range of gas dangers.
The G888C is particularly well-suited for mining applications, where personal protection against gas hazards is crucial. Despite its small size, this multi-gas detector offers five sensors and the necessary functionality for comprehensive gas monitoring.
In terms of safety and operation, the Microtector III G888C is certified for use in Ex zone 1 environments and features water and dust resistance (IP67 rating). The rubberized polycarbonate housing provides excellent protection against shocks and vibrations, ensuring durability in demanding conditions. The device’s practical design, light weight, and robust crocodile clip offer optimal wearing comfort. It is operated using three buttons and a color backlit display, which can be rotated by 180 degrees if needed. Additionally, the G888C includes an explosion-proof LED light for improved visibility in low-light conditions.
When a threshold value is exceeded, the G888C alerts the wearer using light signals, vibration, and a loud horn (103 db(A)). This ensures immediate awareness of hazardous conditions. The integrated NiMH battery provides a runtime of up to 65 hours, depending on the operating mode and sensor configuration, allowing for extended use in the field.
Overall, the G888C is a reliable and compact multi-gas detector that offers personal protection and reliable gas detection capabilities in confined spaces and shafts. Its small size, robust construction, and comprehensive sensor configuration make it an excellent choice for applications where space is limited, such as mining. The device’s safety features, comfortable design, and extended battery life contribute to its usability and effectiveness in demanding environments.
