Ion Science PhoCheck Tiger

...the Revolutionary
VOC Detector

The PhoCheck Tiger VOC detector is a revolutionary hand held PID instrument for rapid, accurate detection of volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Its photoionization detection (PID) capabilities utilize advanced patented Fence Electrode technology, a 3-electrode format with increased resistance to humidity and contamination.
A robust hand held VOC detector, PhoCheck Tiger provides a dynamic detection range of 1 part per billion (ppb) to 20,000 parts per million (ppm), offering the widest measurement range of any other VOC detector on the market.

Ready to use straight out of the box, the PhoCheck Tiger VOC detector requires no complex set-up procedures via a PC to perform basic functions and provides the best available VOC detection and software features available. The PhoCheck Tiger VOC detector has the fastest response time on the market of just two seconds, and is just as quick to clear down.

The instrument can be connected directly to a PC via the USB offering extremely fast data download capabilities. Wireless data download via a Bluetooth interface is available as an option. PhoCheck Tiger has been designed for the safe replacement of batteries in hazardous environments. Long life rechargeable Li-ion batteries give up to 30 hours of use. Fast battery charging allows the instrument to be fully charged in 6.5 hours, while 8 hours of use can be achieved from 1.5 hours charge.

The unique six-pin miniPID detector cell with anti-contamination design dramatically extends run time in the field. Low cost filters and lamps can be easily changed in seconds, minimizing instrument downtime. Inexpensive disposable parts mean the PhoCheck Tiger VOC detector has the lowest running costs on the market. 

PhoCheck Tiger is a fully upgrade able VOC detector with multiple functions to choose from. A base unit can be upgraded with data logging, health and safety and ppb options, remotely, without needing to be returned to the factory. PhoCheck Tiger offers simple, one handed operation for easy VOC detection. Its rugged design and protective, removable rubber boot withstand the harshest environments. The large, clear backlit display allows for easy viewing in any light condition. An integrated torch is designed for directing the instrument’s probe into dimly lit areas.
