Draeger 5510
Impressive design. Trustworthy technology.

Draeger 5510 Safe and easy to use

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 waythe mouthpieces are designed means they can be fitted quickly and securely even in poor light conditions.

Rapid ready for use

The very latest in electronics technology ensures that the instrument is ready for use in no time at all.

Quick and precise analysis

The 1/4"-DraegerSensor 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.

Low energy consumption

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

"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. The individually packaged mouthpieces can be attached to the instrument easily and hygienically.

Practical design

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

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 attachment - Can be fitted for right or left orientation
  • Menu buttons - easy to use menus with 14 different measurement settings

  • Tough Housing - made from shockproof, damp proof
  • LCD Display - 3-colour, to support display and warning messages
  • Single OK button - for simple, intuitive operation
