MX6 iBrid Multi-Gas Portable Gas Detector

MX6 iBrid – an intelligent hybrid of Industrial Scientific’s best monitoring technologies, and the first gas detector with a full-colour LCD display screen.

You will see hazardous levels of oxygen, toxic and combustible gas, and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) like you never imagined possible.

  • Monitors 1-6 gases.
  • 24 gas sensor options, including PID and IR.
  • Full-colour LCD display.
  • iNet® ready and docking station compatible.

Overview of MX6 iBrid features

MX6 iBrid is the first gas detector to feature a full-colour LCD display screen.

The LCD display improves safety by providing clear readings in light conditions ranging from low light to bright light.

The LCD display makes it easy to see what gas hazards lurk in the immediate work environment, whether that be outside, inside or underground.

The eye-catching colour LCD display allows you to step through instrument settings and functions with an intuitive menu and the detector’s 5-way navigation button.

MX6 iBrid even supports the option of on-board graphing for easily interpreted direct readings and recorded data.

The MX6 iBrid is Industrial Scientific’s most rugged instrument ever. It carries a lifetime warranty and is fully compatible with the DSX™ Docking Station and iNet™ Instrument Network.
