The Draeger Pac 3500 CO Gas Monitor is a reliable way for workers to get accurate, continuous readings of dangerous carbon monoxide between 0-500 ppm with a resolution down to 1 ppm. This two-year disposable CO detector clips to your work outfit and is constructed to endure the rigors of industrial work life. It features an impact- and chemical-resistant rubber coating for extra durability and meets the requirements of IP 65 to ensure operation in case it's splashed with water.

What really makes the Pac 3500 CO so great is its unmatched accuracy and detection ability. It uses a miniature version of Draeger's trusted XXS sensor and can be used a full two years without needing calibration. If it reads a harmful high or low level of carbon monoxide, the device sounds a multi-tone 90 dB alarm, flashes 360 degree LED lights, and vibrates.

The Drager Pac 3500 features two-button simplicity, language-free information, and a back-lit display for when it gets dark. This has been a particularly popular monitor for our customers working in confined spaces, oil and gas, and coal. Draeger is a world leader at creating dependable sensors, which are used widely among hospitals and fire departments in addition to industrial work sites. Draeger doesn't claim to make the cheapest detectors, but the quality of their detection, construction, and overall convenience is very strong.

    what PPM levels does this unit alarm at?
    does it have different alarm sounds and/or types for different CO levels?

      The Pac 3500 for CO goes into alarm at 35 ppm and 50 ppm as it is shipped standard from Draeger. This meets OSHA standards in all but one state - California.<br>
      <br>
      Cal-OSHA specifies the CO alarms must sound at 25 ppm and 50 ppm. <br>
      <br>
      Draeger can change these settings at the factory. Simply make a note during ordering, or contact PK Safety Customer Service at 1-800-829-9580. It may take an extra day at most for delivery if these changes are made at the factory.

    What type of battery is required, and how long does it last?

      The Pac 3500 uses a Lithium battery (part number 4543808). This battery is designed to last slightly longer than the entire two-year life of the monitor when used 8 hours per day, and going into alarm 1 minute per day. This rate was determined at an average external temperature of 77 degrees.

    What happens at the end of two years? Is the unit trash, or can you replace batteries and filters and continue using?

      The Pac 3500 is a disposable 2-year monitor. This has become a popular option in the industry because companies like to have monitors that don’t need to be calibrated, and replacement costs are predictable because they know when the units expire.<br>

    Can the Draeger Pac 3500 Carbon Monoxide (CO) Single Gas Monitor 4543957 be left turned on all the time? If so will the battery last 2 years? We would like to clip them to our EMS bags so they are always with us on first aid calls, always on without someone having to remember to turn it on.

      The Pac 3500 monitors do not run continually for 2 years. If they run for 7 hours per day with one minute spent in alarm they will last for 2 years. That's how Draeger explains their battery life estimates. <br>
      <br>
      It sounds like what you're looking for is an alarm if CO levels reach dangerous levels. If you don't need the constant readout of the CO concentration levels, consider the <a href="https://www.pksafety.com/bw-honeywell-gas-alert-clip-extreme-co-portable-gas-monitor.html">BW Honeywell GasAlert Clip Extreme for CO</a> or their <a href="https://www.pksafety.com/bw-gasalert-extreme-co-monitor.html">GasAlert Extreme for CO</a> which has replaceable batteries and displays gas concentrations.

    If I use this for less than the 7 hr per day, will it last for more than 2 years?

      The Drager Pac 3500 is a 2 year ‘disposable’ monitor. Once the gas detector has been activated, a 2 year countdown begins. At the end of 2 years, the unit shuts off. We can’t do anything to change that.

    Once a high level of CO is detected, does it use the vibration, lights, and alarm all at the same time? Is there a way to turn each method of alert on/off individually?

      2015-02-23 20:09:18

      I checked with tech support at Draeger, and the Pac 3500 alarms (light, sound and vibration) cannot be turned off or manipulated. If you don’t want the alarms to sound, the alarm set point can be changed to higher values. The Draeger Communication Module allows you to communicate with the detector on your PC computer, and adjust at what point the alarms will sound. The software for this accessory is available for free download from the Drager web site.

    What is the max temperature in which the monitor can be used? I am looking for a model that can be used in 140 degree temps. Thanks

      The operating range of this monitor is -22 to 122 Fahrenheit. Unfortunately we don't have any gas detectors capable of operating above 122 Fahrenheit.

    How often do you need to bump test the PAC 3500 and is the Bump Testing And Calibration Station even needed.

    1 answer
    1. Alan

      It is recommended to do a bump test before you go out to the field with the monitor. The calibration station isn't needed, but you will need the cradle, a bottle of gas, and the regulator.

      Here is the cradle:

    Can the PAC 3500 be left on continuously and last two years if you plan on changing the battery after one year?

    1 answer

      It would be ideal to turn it off when not in use to preserve battery life. Leaving the monitor on continuously may affect the longevity.
