Dräger Pac® 8000

With the robust Dräger Pac® 8000, you'll be ready for tough conditions. This nondisposable, personal single-gas detector is a reliable and precise instrument, which detects hazardous concentrations of twenty nine different gases, including special gases like H2, NO2, O3 or COCl2. Measured data can easily be transmitted into the Dräger Gas Detection Connect system via Bluetooth®.

Strong performance for maximum safety

You can count on the Dräger Pac 8000 to give you reliable, precise readings at any time in extreme conditions. Our powerful sensors with a fast T-90 response time ensure quick reactions. In addition to the standard alarms, you can define extra alarm thresholds for TLV®/TWA* and STEL*.

*TLV®/TWA = Threshold Limit Values / Time Weighted Average, STEL = Short Term Exposure Limit

Sensors for special gases

The Pac 8000 can be fitted with sensors for hydrogen (H2), carbon dioxide (CO2), chlorine gas (Cl2), hydrogen cyanide (HCN), ammonia (NH3), nitrogen dioxide (NO2), phosphine (PH3) and organic vapors (OV or OV-A).

The Dräger Pac 8000 performs especially well when detecting different special gases: it can detect ozone (O3) from concentrations as low as 0.02 ppm and phosgene (COCL2) from 0.01 ppm. The Pac 8000 detects nitrogen dioxide (NO2) from concentrations as low as 0.04 ppm.

Robust design – even for the toughest conditions

The Pac 8000 can easily handle extreme conditions. The sensors can tolerate air pressures between 700 and 1,300 mbar and a membrane filter protects the sensor from foreign matter such as dust and liquids. The shock-proof, chemical-resistant housing meets the requirements specified in the IP68 standard rating.

Easy handling thanks to clear user guidance

The D-Light indicates whether functionality of the device has been tested and that it is ready to use. The housing is also designed with your safety in mind: each sensor variant of the Dräger Pac 8000 features clear, clear color coding, this helps minimize the chance of mistakes.

User-friendly display with all important information

The large display is non-verbal and clearly indicates the respective gas concentration. Other important information, such as the unit of concentration and battery capacity, is also displayed. The bright backlighting ensures that all values can be clearly read in low light or dark environments.

360° alarm with various functions

If the Dräger Pac 8000 measures hazardous gas concentrations, it sets off an audible, visual and noticeable vibration alarm. Two bright, flashing LEDs on the top and bottom of the device ensure that the alarm is easily visible from all sides and the acoustic signal reaches a volume of 90 dB at 1 ft (30 cm) distance. The display can show the peak concentration measured at any given moment and previous alarms can also be retrieved at a later time even if acknowledged.

Data logger and event logger for analyses and reports

The Pac 8000 records the date and time of concentrations and events. The data can be downloaded to a PC via an interface and processed for future use. The new Gas Detection Connect platform and the integrated X-dock stations allow you to view and download the data from a central cloud-based asset management system. So the data can be available anytime from anywhere.

Bluetooth® communication

With the new Bluetooth® enabled Pac you can wirelessly transmit live measurement values into the Dräger Gas Detection Connect platform. You can easily track the location of the Pac by connecting the device to the Gas Detection Connect gateway app. Dräger Pac devices can also be integrated into third party applications via OpenGATT protocol.

Economical operational costs

All of the versions of the Dräger Pac 8000 are equipped with extremely durable Dräger sensor® XXS and a powerful battery.

The Pac 8000 is protected against water, dust and other foreign bodies by a special membrane filter. When the filter becomes contaminated, you can quickly and easily replace it. The device is then ready to be used with little down time.

Fast function test saves time and money

Function tests and calibrations can be carried out efficiently in the Dräger X‑dock calibration station. The automatic bump tests in the X-dock are a cost-efficient and convenient solution thanks to short test duration and the extremely low test gas consumption. The Pac 8000 is simply placed in the bump test station and automatically selects the correct setting.
