The X-zone 5000 from Draeger is designed to get workers out safely in the event of an accident. It combines the best of fixed and portable gas detection technology into a wireless and modular defense system against dangerous gas leaks.

X-zone 5000

Draeger has been the company that people who are serious about gas detection and safety have turned to for many years. The X-zone 5000 is another in a long line of innovative safety devices that uses cutting edge communications technology combined with top-of-the-industry gas sensors. Simply insert one of the Draeger X-am 5000 or X-am 5600 multi-gas detectors into the R2D2-like unit, and you have a diffusion monitor that will alert all workers in the area if a dangerous level of the tested gases is present with a (frankly) piercing audible alarm and red flashing LED lights.

The X-zone 5000 is a modular unit, so it can be linked with other X-zone 5000 units operating on the same wireless channel. Up to 25 units can be operating to protect workers around a work site. Once the units are communicating, any of the sensors that pick up gas will immediately go into alarm. The X-zone 5000 that has picked up the gas will alert workers nearby (and a long way off) and will flash red LEDs. The other units in the daisy chain will also go into alarm but will flash red and green LEDs.

This provides workers a pathway of safe exit. By staying away from the X-zone 5000s which are flashing all red, they know they are going toward an area that is free of gas, at least for the moment.

Another way the X-zone 5000 area monitors can help is with confined space entry. Attendants on the outside of a Permit Required Confined Space (PRCS) don’t need to see or be in communication with the confined space entrants in order to know that a dangerous atmosphere has developed. They can begin their emergency aid, or at least be ready to help far more effectively. And the wireless capabilities of the X-zone are far superior to hard-wired communication solutions.
