Drager 5510 Breathalyser

Dräger Alcotest 5510 (Formerly 6510)

Sophisticated technology

The 1/4“-DrägerSensor with its optimized gas dynamics measures specifically alcohol. Even at high alcohol concentrations direct gaspaths, fast pneumatic components and short reaction times of the sensor ensure the measurement result will be displayed quickly. The very latest in electronics technology ensures that the instrument is ready for use in no time at all.

Easy handling

Thanks to its compact dimensions, the Dräger Alcotest 5510 even fits into a shirt pocket. The ergonomic design makes the instrument equally easy to use for right and left-handed people.

Safe and hygienic

The separation of the grip area and the mouthpiece automatically ensures a certain distance between the hand of the operator and the mouth of the person to be tested.

Low energy consumption

More than 1500 breath alcohol tests can be conducted on just two mignon batteries (AA size).

Comfortable operation

Automatic sampling and calibration processes make the instrument easy to use. All measurement functions are controlled via a single key, while menu navigation is by two menu keys. The special way the mouthpieces are designed means they can be fitted quickly and securely even in poor light conditions.

Integrated datalogger

The latest 10 measurement results with their respective test numbers are stored in the datalogger. Individual results can be called up from the log by pressing the menu keys.

Slide'n'click mouthpiece

The shape of the mouthpiece means you will intuitively fit it correctly. An air outlet which cannot be obstructed prevents any manipulation when the breath sample is given. A spacer on the mouthpiece prevents the test subject's lips from coming into contact with the instrument's housing, and at the same time may be used as a mouthpiece ejector.
