The personal gas detector incorporates the best PID sensor in the market (independently verified), to ensure safety in the work environment. Comfortable and inconspicuous to wear, the detector has the widest range of detection: 0 to 5000 ppm.

The CUB is available as a standard instrument with 10.6 eV lamp. The detector detects a wide range of volatile organic compounds (VOC) to part-per-million (ppm) levels. The device can also be upgraded to part-per-billion (ppb) levels online, eliminating the hassle of sending the device back to the factory.

The CUB can be used in hazardous environments, and has a two year warranty if it’s registered online.

The personal gas detector incorporates the following benefits:

Feature Benefit
Photoionization detection (PID) technology Provides fast and accurate detection of volatile organic compounds
Fence Electrode Technology Resistant to humidity and contamination, which minimises drift (provides accurate readings), and extends the lifespan of the device, even in extreme environments
World’s smallest and lightest detector Comfortable and unobtrusive to wear
Market leading parts-per-billion (ppb) sensitivity Provides early warning when exposed to hazardous gases
Clear audio, visual and vibrating alarms system Ensures workers are immediately alerted to hazardous gases
CUB docking stations Provides USB communications, charging option, and calibration for the instrument
