Portable / Fixed:Portable
Why the Aspida?
The Aspida O₂ & CO₂ Detector is a robust, high specification personal carbon dioxide (CO₂) and oxygen (O₂) monitor which can be worn on a belt or even wall mounted as a backup to a primary safety system. Offering audio/visual alarms, data logging, and a man down alarm for lone workers, this is an ideal solution to protect staff such as doctors, nurses, and lab tech’s from the dangers of a leak of carbon dioxide (CO₂) or oxygen (O₂).
How it works
The Aspida will alert users to any oxygen (O₂) levels above 23.5% with an audible and visual alarm, enabling them to take quick action to make the area safe.
The unit can be wall-mounted at normal working head height in the gas storage room, or where enriched oxygen (O₂) is piped. The unit comes with one repeater as standard which is located at the entrance to the room.
What can it prevent?
The Aspida is ideal for safeguarding against carbon dioxide (CO₂) enrichment and oxygen (O₂) enrichment and deficiency. It has a high-resolution display that gives clear readings in all light conditions and is packed into a durable, water-resistant enclosure.
Up to date with Regulations
Standards such as EH40 in Europe mandate that employees are not exposed to potentially dangerous levels of carbon dioxide (CO₂) as it is a highly toxic gas in relatively small quantities. The Aspida is an affordable, easy to operate carbon dioxide (CO₂) monitor and is ideal for ensuring personal safety in the areas where gas is piped or stored. The same standards also require that consideration is given to asphyxiant dangers where inert gases such as nitrogen (N), argon (Ar) or helium (He) are used, a portable, personal monitor, like the Aspida, may be appropriate following a risk assessment.

Users of the Analox Aspida will never need to worry about maintenance schedules again. The Aspida uses intelligent software which lets you know what requires maintenance and when - ensuring optimum performance of your unit. The software also allows 2 employees to share the unit, ideal for 24/7 split shift patterns. It is also the first gas alarm to incorporate a man down/panic alarm. The man down alarm will sound a loud (110 db) audible alarm in the event of an employee collapsing. Alternatively, an employee can trigger the alarm manually in a panic situation.
