Multi Gas Detector – Dräger X-am® 2800

​The X-am 2800 multi-gas detector measures up to four gases and is equipped with a particularly shock-resistant CatEx sensor.

With the Dräger Gas Detection Connect software, it offers live data transmission and powerful fleet management. Designed for personal monitoring, the X-am 2800 offers the highest level of safety at a low cost of ownership.


Multi-gas detector

  • ​1 to 4 gas detection device
  • for personal air monitoring
  • detection of flammable gases and vapours as well as O2, CO, NO2, SO2 and H2S

Powerful data analysis in the cloud

​Safety and efficiency thanks to its networking capability: Transfer your recorded data directly and via Bluetooth to a smartphone and from there to the backend of the Gas Detection Connect software. As an alternative, you can also transfer the data directly to the cloud with the X-dock test station. This way, you have secure access to your data and its analysis at any time and from anywhere – simply via your internet browser.

Comfortable fleet management

​With the X-am 2800 you can manage your fleet of equipment comfortably and efficiently in daily use. Save operating costs and time through fast tests by using the automatic test station X-dock with low gas consumption or a pure mechanical bump test station. Further advantages: 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. Few, easy-to-replace spare parts – including the power supply – and durable sensors ensure that your devices remain operational for many years. Dräger provides a 4-year manufacturer’s warranty on the basic device. Existing, relevant accessories from its predecessor, the X-am 2500 can continue to be used.

Tailor-made gas monitoring

​Small and lightweight: The X-am 2800 is comfortable to wear and easy to use even with gloves on thanks to its large buttons. The display clearly shows important information such as gas readings, alarms and time. The green D-light indicates that the unit is ready for use. All this, plus the language-free menu, makes it pleasantly simple to use and familiarise yourself with. For your added safety, its oxygen channel has four alarm thresholds – real pre-alarms and main alarms for falling and rising concentrations. Approved for use in Ex zone 0, it has also been tested according to protection class IP 68.

Sensors: durable and powerful

​The newly developed Ex sensor combines many advantages: readiness for calibration within seconds, extreme robustness against shocks and the measurement of flammable vapours – such as petrol, diesel and nonane. You can also set the measurement gas to methane, propane, hydrogen, and many other gases. The performance is complemented by Dräger’s simple cross calibration concept, in which the measurement gas, calibration gas and bump test gas can be specified individually. Upon testing, the X-am 2800 then takes over the necessary conversions.

The sensor was developed with the aim of meeting the demanding requirements of the new IEC standard 60079-29-1 (International Electrotechnical Commission) for such sensors. At the same time, the Ex sensor is resistant to poisoning substances such as silicones and other harmful substances. This combination of properties is exceptional. With years of experience in sensor technology, Dräger develops and produces the sensors itself, including the powerful and durable electrochemical sensors in the XXS format. Your advantage: sensors and device are perfectly matched to each other — saving you operating costs.

Focus on sustainability

​During the development of the X-am 2800, great importance was given to sustainability. With an unlimited service life, the durable DrägerSensors and the rechargeable power supply, which can be easily replaced with one screw, ensure it has a long service life. Almost all spare parts can be replaced by trained users, while all remaining parts can be repaired by the Dräger Service. Furthermore, existing accessories from the previous series can still be used. Environmental protection has also been taken into account in the technical documentation and packaging: It is designed to save paper and when you order two or more units, we can reduce the number ofinstructions for use documents supplied if you order the configurator version. For your convenience, Dräger also takes back old devices and ensures that they are recycled properly.
