Detection combinations never before offered in a portable gas monitor are now available featuring the industry's widest selection of high quality, long life and field proven sensors. The EAGLE 2 now includes PID (Photo Ionization Detector) capability. Conversion factors for a variety of common gases are programmed into the EAGLE 2 for both the PID sensor and LEL/PPM catalytic sensor.

Unique EAGLE 2 features include PPM or LEL hydrocarbon detection at the push of a button; infrared sensors for CO2, methane or hydrocarbons in LEL and % volume ranges; PID sensor for detecting high and low ppm levels (0-50 & 0-4,000) of VOC gases; methane elimination feature for environmental applications; and a list of super toxic gases and measurable ranges. The EAGLE 2 has a strong internal pump with a low flow auto pump shut off and alarm, which can draw samples from up to 125 feet. This allows for quick response and recovery from distant sampling locations. The EAGLE 2 will continuously operate for over 16 hours on alkaline batteries or 20 hours on Ni-MH. A variety of accessories are also available to help satisfy almost any application such as long sample hoses, special float probes for tank testing, and dilution fittings, just to name a few. Datalogging is a standard feature for all sensors on all versions.

With its ergonomic design and large glove friendly buttons, the EAGLE 2 offers easy access to controls such as autocalibration, alarm silence, demand zero, peak hold, methane elimination, and a wide variety of other features. Each channel has two alarm levels plus TWA and STEL alarms for toxic channels. The two alarm levels are user adjustable and can be latching or self resetting. Rugged, reliable, easy to operate and maintain, the EAGLE 2 is the solution for just about any portable gas monitoring situation.
