New Gas Detection Zone featured at WWEM 2010

Ion Science introduces the new ground breaking PhoCheck Tiger photoionisation detector (PID) for rapid, accurate detection of volatile organic compounds (VOCs). A significant development in PID, the instrument’s powerful software and performance features set new industry standards for hand held VOC detection.

The instrument’s revolutionary PID technology provides a dynamic detection range of 1 parts per billion (ppb) to 20,000 parts per million (ppm), offering the widest measurement range on the market. PhoCheck Tiger is pre programmed to detect over 450 gases.

Ready to use right out of the box, PhoCheck Tiger’s advanced software features mean the instrument requires no complicated programming and set up procedures to perform both basic and advanced functions.

The instrument has the fastest response time on the market of just two seconds, and is just as quick to clear down. PhoCheck Tiger can be connected directly to a PC via the USB offering extremely fast data download capabilities. Wireless data download via a Bluetooth interface is available as an option.

The instrument’s patented Fence Electrode Technology has received independent verification for best performing PID for speed and accuracy, effectively minimising contamination effects. The instrument’s exceptional performance in high humidity environments is achieved without impairing other features.

PhoCheck Tiger has been designed for the safe replacement of batteries in hazardous environments. Long life rechargeable Li-ion batteries give up to 30 hours of use. Fast battery charging allows the instrument to be fully charged in 6.5 hours, while 8 hours of use can be achieved from 1.5 hours charge.

The unique six pin miniPID detector cell with anti-contamination design dramatically extends run time in the field. Low cost filters and lamps can be easily changed in seconds, minimising instrument downtime. Inexpensive disposable parts mean PhoCheck Tiger has the lowest running costs on the market.

PhoCheck Tiger is a fully upgradeable instrument with multiple functions to choose from. A base unit can be upgraded with data logging, health and safety and ppb options, remotely, without needing to be returned to the factory.

PhoCheck Tiger offers simple, one handed operation. Its rugged design and protective, removable rubber boot withstand the harshest environments. The large, clear back-lit display allows for easy viewing in any light condition. An integrated torch is designed for directing the instrument’s probe into dimly lit areas.

Simple key pad operation and icon driven menu mean ease of use across global markets. The illuminated software keys are large enough to be operated even when wearing the thickest gloves.

The instrument has two 95 bBA audible alarms, two bright flashing LEDs and a vibration alarm. Each function can be selected, switched off or turned down as required.

IECEx, UL and CSA approved, PhoCheck Tiger is globally certified as intrinsically safe for use in hazardous areas. Designed to IP65, the rugged PhoCheck Tiger provides optimal resistance to moisture, dust and contamination.

Target industries and applications for PhoCheck Tiger include Industrial Safety, Environmental, Petrochemical, Chemical, Indoor Air Quality, and Hazardous Materials.

PhoCheck Tiger is available from Ion Science or through its global network of distributors. The instrument comes with a five year warranty as standard. Visit or contact Ion Science for more information.
