Cub – Personal PID Gas Monitor

General Details

Cub is a personal photoionisation detection (PID) gas monitor for the fast, accurate detection of volatile organic and total aromatic compounds, keeping you safe within your working environment.  With market leading parts-per-billion (ppb) sensitivity, Cub sets the standard in personal gas monitoring giving an early warning of exposure to hazardous gases, including benzene.cub

Comfortable and unobtrusive to wear, Cub is the smallest, lightest, personal PID gas monitor available. Cub has a dynamic range of 1 ppb to 5000 ppm, the widest on the market measuring 480 selectable compounds.

The Cub personal PID gas monitor is available as a standard instrument with 10.6 eV lamp for accurately detecting a wide range of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) to parts-per-million (ppm) levels. The CubTAC ppm variant with 10.0 eV lamp accurately detects total aromatic compounds (TACs), including benzene. Both models can be upgraded with parts-per-billion (ppb) sensitivity quickly and easily via our micro website.

When worker exposure exceeds pre-set limits the instrument’s audible, vibrating and flashing LED alarms alert you to the gases present. Readings are displayed on its bright, back-lit LCD display with selectable data logging time.

Cub’s PID sensor technology has been independently verified as best performing for speed, accuracy and humidity resistant operation. Its unique Anti-contamination and patented Fence Electrode Technology provide extended run time in the most challenging environments, giving you accurate results you can truly rely on.

CubDoc docking stations are also available for USB communication, charging and calibrating your instrument, dependent on your requirements.

The Cub personal PID gas monitor is part of the family of PID instruments to be used alongside the leading PhoCheck Tiger VOC detector, and the Tiger Select for total aromatic compounds (TACs) and benzene.
