The device is ready to use within seconds. This means that you can perform an (active) test on a subject at any time. It is also possible to measure alcohol in the ambient air (passive), in which case a mouthpiece isn‘t required.
All functions required for a measurement are activated with the convenient blue OK button, while two menu buttons are used for navigation.
The tried and tested electro-chemical Dräger sensor in the Alcotest 6000 is distinguished by its very fast response times and a long service life. It operates with extreme precision and reliability. The analysis is reliable even at temperatures of -5 to +50 °C / 23 to 122 °F. The sensor also delivers reliable results quickly in case of a high alcohol content, for both active and passive measurements.
