    The Gas Tracer is excellent for testing and detection of small gas leaks.

    Built around high-quality micro-sensor technology, the GX-2012 is RKI’s smallest personal 1-5 sensor gas monitor with a built in sample pump. Weighing only 12.3 ounces, the GX-2012 can monitor the standard confined space gases (LEL combustibles, Oxygen content, Carbon Monoxide, and Hydrogen Sulfide).

    The GX-2012’s large LCD display shows all gas readings, battery level, current time, and will automatically backlight in alarm conditions. Standard alarm types include vibration, visual, and audible alarms, which can be set to latching or non-latching. Controlled by a microprocessor, the GX-2012 continuously checks itself for sensor connections, low battery, circuit trouble, low flow, and calibration errors. The GX-2012 can interchangeably operate on either a Li-ion battery pack or an alkaline battery pack. The batteries are simple to replace requiring no tools to access the removable battery compartment or pack.
