The X-am 2800 is a multi-gas detector measuring up to four gases. It is equipped with a shock-resistant CatEx SR sensor. The Drager Gas Detection Connect software allows live monitoring and efficient fleet management. Designed for personal monitoring with a low cost of ownership.

Powerful data analysis in the cloud

Networking capability provides safety and efficiency: Transfer your recorded data directly and conveniently via Bluetooth to a smartphone and the Gas Detection Connect software. Alternatively, you can transfer the data directly to the cloud with the X-dock test station, providing secure access to your data and its analysis anytime and anywhere with access to the internet.

Comfortable Fleet Management

​Manage your fleet of equipment comfortably and efficiently with the X-am 2800. Save operating costs and time with fast tests, using the automatic test station X-dock, with low gas consumption or mechanical bump test station. Further advantages include powerful fleet management via our smart software solution, convenient firmware updates in the X-dock, an optional RFID transponder, and individual colour marking of the devices. Sensors are durable, and devices remain operational for years, with easy-to-replace spare parts, including the power supply. Drager provides a 4-year manufacturer’s warranty on the basic device and is compatible with X-am 2500 accessories.

Tailor-Made Gas Monitoring

The X-am 2800 is small and lightweight, comfortable to wear, and easy to use, with large buttons for operation while wearing gloves. The display clearly shows essential information, such as gas readings, alarms and time. The green D-light indicates the unit is ready for use with a simple interface. For added safety, the oxygen channel has four alarm thresholds, real pre-alarms, and main alarms for falling and rising concentrations.

Sensors: Durable and Powerful

The newly developed CatEx SR sensor calibrates within seconds and protects against shocks, measuring flammable vapours like gasoline, diesel, and nonane. The unit can also be set to measure methane, propane, hydrogen, and many other gases. The performance is complemented by Drager’s simple cross-calibration concept, in which the measurement gas, calibration gas, and bump test gas can be specified individually. The X-am 2800 calculates the necessary conversions after testing, and the sensor meets the new IEC standard 60079-29-1 (International Electrotechnical Commission) standards.

With decades of experience in sensor technology, Drager develops and produces the sensors themselves, including the powerful and durable electrochemical sensors in the XXS format, resulting in lower operating costs.

Focus on Sustainability

During the development of the X-am 2800, sustainability was a priority. The durable Drager sensors and the rechargeable power supply, which can be easily replaced with one screw, ensure a long service life. Almost all spare parts can be replaced by trained users, with the remaining parts repaired by Drager Service. In addition, the X-am 2800 is compatible with accessories from the previous series. A reduced number of instructional manuals will be supplied upon request, and saving paper and recycling of old devices will be available.
