    PKI 8275 Chemical Handheld Detector

PKI 8275 is a Chemical Handheld Detector for field detection and classification of Chemical Warfare Agents (CWAs) and selected Toxic Industrial Chemicals (TICs). Chemical accidents, terrorism or criminal activities are the actual challenges soldiers and first responders have to prepare for on a daily basis.

The key features of the Chemical Handheld Detector are:
• Widest range of detectable chemicals
• Simple maintenance
• Easy to operate
• Versatility (CWA/TIC)
• Minimal false alarm rate
• Radiological and biological detection with add-on modules

The applications of the Detector are:
• Locating leaks and faulty containers
• Monitoring of industrial sites
• Chemical safety of harbours and railways
• Customs and border control
• Monitoring of mass events and high security meetings
• Law enforcement agencies
• Battlefield detection and monitoring
• CBRN Reconnaissance and surveillance
