Gas Data CO2 Hidden Person Detector

The Data CO2 HIDDEN PERSON DETECTOR is one of the best resources for Law Enforcement, Fire & Rescue, Prisons, Immigration, Border Authorities and Military units around the world to locate persons hidden and trapped in confined spaces and when used in conjunction with the CO2 Pearl drop Rescue Probe is a highly effective tools in a variety of scenarios.

As CO2 is heavier than air, it is exhaled by humans trying to evade capture or those trapped in confined spaces, and quickly builds up to a level where the detector locates the presence of high levels of CO2 emissions very easily and clearly displays them on the handheld detector monitor screen. The unit is supplied without the audible alarm turned on, so personnel can monitor quietly the CO2 response at the scene or location.

Please Note: If this alarm is required or preferred, please specify this at time of purchase.

The CO2 HIDDEN PERSON DETECTOR equipment and ancillaries are presented in a reinforced constructor case and includes a CO2 analyzer, its charger, an under door probe (angled) and cut to penetrate all under door gaps of 4mm and upwards, and also a long lance probe for the searching of lofts and vehicle spaces, where it would ordinarily be too dangerous for personnel to carry out physical searches safely without injury. A leather pouch is also supplied.

The CO2 HIDDEN PERSON DETECTOR equipment is used extensively by Police/Fire & Rescue and Military Search teams and by Immigration & Border Agencies searching for illegal immigrants and those evading capture.

It has proved highly successful within the Prison Service community as well, for searching for delivery vehicles leaving establishments. It continues to be used by many Fire & Rescue Organizations across the world, to locate buried or trapped persons still alive in disaster situations.

It has been directly responsible in locating large numbers of persons hiding in vehicles, containers and vessels during 2010/11 and is continually updated by the partnership to ensure they are the leading edge of this type of search technology.

The new CO2 Hidden Person Detector provides greater stability and reliability than the previous model and has been re-engineered to offer supervisor calibration adjustments and interface improvements.

The CO2 Pearl Drop Rescue Probe

The optional CO2 Pear Drop Rescue Probe was designed for use by Rescue Organizations and Firefighters in their search for buried people in circumstances where they may be trapped in confined spaces.

Its unique design allows the weighted probe to recover CO2 which is pumped along the tube which can be supplied in any length, typically 25 meters long, and then analyzed by the handheld monitor, to confirm the presence of human beings by simple readings.

It has been responsible for assisting Search and Rescue teams in many varied applications in confirming the presence of individuals waiting for rescue in confined spaces around the world.

This unit is now used in many countries for this purpose and is regarded as a “must have” in rescue equipment.

* The detector can also be fitted with additional chemical cells to detect a wide range of other gases.
