The Dräger Alcotest ® 9510 is the most advanced Evidential Breath-Alcohol Testing instrument exceeding all national and international specification requirements. It features Dräger’s famous dual sensoric technology, network and wireless communication, intuitive color touch screen interface, and was built for demanding 24/7 operation.
Dual alcohol sensor technology
The Dräger Alcotest ® 9510 employs two different and independent technologies, each analyzing and quantifying a subject’s breath alcohol concentration:
IR spectroscopy and Electro-Chemical Cell technology. This offers the highest possible level of forensic analytical integrity.
IR spectroscopy at 9.5 µm is virtually not susceptible to any potentially interfering substance in the breath of a subject. Furthermore, it eliminates the need for a chopper wheel with multiple IR filters.
Electro-chemical Cell (Fuel Cell)
The Dräger fuel cell is known worldwide for its superior accuracy, alcohol specificity, reliability, and fast recovery.
Breath Temperature Measurement
The Alcotest 9510 offers the measurement of the subject’s breath temperature to correct the alcohol test result for breath temperature variables.
True Ambient Air Check.
The Alcotest 9510 performs an IR independent analysis of the ambient air in the absorption chamber to provide assurance that the IR system is set to
zero prior to the breath test
The quiet and reliable thermal printer delivers fast and legible high resolution documents. It does not require a printer cartridge or ink ribbons.
The instrument incorporates a high resolution, color, LCD touch-screen. The large screen offers a virtual keyboard and delivers clear and complete text
messages that allow for well guided operation.
Interface Capability and Flexibility
For optimal program integration, the Alcotest 9510 offers almost unlimited communication and interface capabilities: 3 USB ports (for keyboard, ext.
printer, memory stick, etc.), external video monitor, 2 RS232 ports, Ethernet, modem, GSM modem, wireless keyboard, and IrDA communication.
Hardware Connectivity and Flexibility
The instrument offers very elaborate hardware interfaces: 3 independently valved dry-gas inlet ports, vapor inlet port, air outlet port, RFI antenna, GSM antenna, electronic service port, several A/D inputs, logic outputs, and 5 VDC output for possible peripherals
Data can be input into the Alcotest 9510 in many ways including the internal virtual keyboard, USB keyboard, IrDA keyboard, mag-card reader, bar/symbolic code reader, stylus on touch screen, or finger tip on touch screen.
The instrument performs intricate diagnostic checks on a continuous and simultaneous basis.
Power Variety and Flexibility
The instrument can be operated with any possible power source: 90-260 VAC, 12 VDC (vehicle), or rechargeable battery operation without the need for an adapter or an inverter
