Dräger Alcotest® 6820 for Canadian Police

Keeping impaired drivers off the road is a tough, unpredictable job. Dräger designed the Alcotest® 6820 specifically to meet the stringent requirements of professional breath-alcohol analysis. The device is fast, easy to use, highly reliable, and approved by the Canadian government as an official screening device for use in law enforcement.

Alcohol tests for increased safety

​Alcohol abuse is one of the most common causes of collisions on the road and safety violations in the workplace. The Dräger Alcotest® 6820 enables you to increase general safety and help prevent personal injury, material damage, and loss of public image that can result from alcohol consumption.

Very easy to use

​Dealing with a person who is under the influence of alcohol requires a high degree of concentration. The Alcotest 6820 is easy to use, so you can perform breath alcohol tests quickly and easily. You can perform all measurement functions with a single button. Easily understandable full-text messages on a large, backlit display guide you safely through the alcohol testing procedure. An LED and acoustic signals enhance the visual display and indicate when the test is complete. Two menu buttons provide easy access to the menus and record statistical data.

Proven quality

​The heart of the Alcotest 6820 is the tried-and-tested electrochemical DrägerSensor®. This sensor features very rapid reaction times, high accuracy, and a long service life. Analysis results are accurate at temperatures from -5 °C to +50 °C. In case of high alcohol levels, the sensor delivers fast, safe results – with both active and passive detection.

Practical design

The Alcotest 6820 is designed to be user-friendly and ergonomic. The compact shape makes it easy to hold, and it can be operated with one hand. The display is constantly visible – whether you are right- or left-handed and whether you are checking traffic driving on the left or right. A contoured shape makes it easy to place the mouthpiece into the mount on the device, even in the dark. After use, removing the mouthpiece is just as easy and hygienic.

High-quality workmanship

A professional breathalyser is subjected hard use and tough conditions. Because of its durable materials and high-quality workmanship, the Alcotest 6820 can stand up to the growing number of application requirements. Designed to be used indoors or out, the Alcotest 6820 is particularly resistant to cold and moisture, and complies with protection class IP 54.

Slide 'n' Click mouthpiece

​The patented Dräger mouthpiece prevents attempts at manipulation. An optional non-return valve ensures the highest degree of hygiene.

Data processing and documentation

​The Alcotest 6820 can record up to 5,000 test results. For onsite printing, you can transfer data wirelessly to the Dräger Mobile Printer via the optical interface. You can also transfer data from the device to a PC and configure the device using a USB connection.

Wrist Strap

​The Alcotest 6820 comes with a wide wrist strap to keep the device handy and secure. Or you can attach the device to your belt using a buckle or hook-and-loop fastener.
