alcolmeter® 600

A multi-function breath alcohol analysis instrument, with touch screen and advanced data-logging

The lion alcolmeter® 600 [also known as lion alcolmeter®  SD-400 Touch in selected countries]  is a powerful tool for use in road traffic law enforcement, commercial health and safety programs, and in various areas of medicine

Multi-Breath Sampling Modes

The lion alcolmeter® 600 is perfect for use in Police roadblock operations, or wherever else it is required to test a large number of people for the presence or absence of alcohol.

In Passive Mode there is no mouthpiece. Just hold the lion alcolmeter® 600 in front of the subject’s mouth as they speak, then press Sample.

In Active Mode the subject blows through a mouthpiece. This is then analysed, to give an accurate reading of the subject’s alcohol level. For ease of mouthpiece attachment at night, the sampling port is illuminated.

In Dual Mode the test starts off in Passive or Precursory operation; but if alcohol is found to be present the system automatically switches to Active Mode.

(Multi-breath sampling modes are software specific)

Data Logging Function

Use the touch-screen display system to enter details relevant to each breath test. 

Some data is entered by touching the relevant icon, while others are entered using the on-screen key pad.

As an alternative to the touch-screen, the five navigation buttons can be used for data entry.

Integral GPS

The lion alcolmeter® 600 incorporates an optional GPS system to record the exact location of each breath test – quickly, accurately and automatically.
