The Dräger Alcotest ® 5000 performs tests without requiring physical contact with the subject.
No mouthpiece is necessary since the detector is equipped with a funnel which ensures that there is no return of exhaled air by the subject and thus avoids the transmission of pathogens. The chimney can be easily replaced after use, making it a hygienic solution.
The Dräger Alcotest ® 5000 is simply activated with a button that displays a backlit display. The device is ready for use in just 4 seconds. This same activation button also allows you to navigate in the menu.
The Dräger Alcotest ® 5000 is very easy to operate with a simple OK button. The breathalyzer displays neutral symbols on the screen that guide the user through the testing process. The two directional arrow buttons allow you to view the latest test results, reset the test counter, check the next calibration date or change the menu language.
The Dräger Alcotest ® 5000 has a 1/4 ”threaded hole in the back of the device, allowing a standard selfie pole to be attached. A very useful feature when the subject to be tested is away from the tester as is possible when a driver is seated in the cab of his truck for example. Obviously, this procedure speeds up the evaluation process.
The Dräger Alcotest ® 5000 works with 3 AA batteries which allow more than 5000 tests to be carried out either actively (the subject is breathed in the funnel) or passively (measurement of alcohol in the ambient air or in suspicious drinks , for example).
