AlcoSense AL6000PRO Personal Breathalyser with Australian Standard AS3547 - Silver
The Andatech Alcosense Pro Alcohol Tester
was the first semiconductor breathalyzer certified to Australian Standard AS3547 which can be operated in dual-mode. The advanced semiconductor technology used by Andatech
had ensured the accuracy and cost effectiveness of their Portable Breathalyser
This Alcosens Pro Breathalyzer
is compact, reliable and easy to use, it can be operated in a normal mode to measure specific blood alcohol concentration, or it can be used as an alcohol responder (able to share between multiple people) to test the presence of alcohol with high accuracy ranging 0.00 to 0.40% BAC.
Re-calibration of the Andatech Alcosense AL6000PRO
is recommended for every 200 uses or every 4-6 months. The sensor needs replacement every year or 500 uses in total. The cost of sensor replacement is included in calibration.
Australian Standard AS3547 Certified, CE, DOT and FDA approval.
Industrial grade semiconductor sensor tested to Australian Standards.
Highly accurate BAC reading ranging from 0.00 to 0.4%.
Dual mode: fast and normal
Perfect for Professional and Personal Use
3 Years Manufacturer's Warranty
In the Box:
I need to send my AL-6000-Pro for callibration
what process do I do?
Thanks in advance
Breathalyser calibration is carried out by the manufacturer, Andatech.
You can find information about getting your unit calibrated on their website here:
What type of batteries does it take?
The AL6000PRO uses two AA sized batteries to operate.
How and where do you get the unit calibrated and what cost? I live in Hobart,Tasmania.
Your breathalyser will be re-calibrated by the manufacturer, Andatech. They are based in Melbourne.
You can find information about organising a recalibration on their website here:
It normally costs around $35 for the re-calibration process, and the turn-around is normally 4 working days.
Where in adelaide can these be calibrated?
You can follow the directions for getting your breathalyser recalibrated on the Andatech website here:
I'm just wondering what the accuracy is? Can you give me an example of when I blow 0.040, what would it actually say?
The AL6000pro's accuracy is +/- 0.010%BAC at 0.050%BAC, meaning that if you blow 0.040%BAC, your actual blood alcohol reading could be plus or minus 0.01 from 0.04, so it could actually be 0.030 or 0.050. The main reason behind this is because it is a semiconductor type breathalyser which doesn't differentiate between alcohol (it would detect + read alcohol from cologne, mouthwash, etc).
Are the mouth pieces reusable?
The mouthpieces are most certainly re-useable. Just make sure they get washed between uses to prevent inaccurate readings.
It says ships in 4-6 business days, but that would make it too late for what I need. Can you ship quicker, to get one delivered to Nthn NSW in 5 business days?
The status says ships in 4-6 working days as this product is actually out of stock at the moment and we will have to order more in.
Was this to go to a metro or rural area? Delivery to metro takes 1-3 working days. Delivery to rural takes 3-5.
Is this equivalent to those used by the police? I'm concerned that I may get a different (higher) reading during an RBT which could land me in hot water.
The AL6000Pro is not actually equivalent to those used by the police. The Australian Standard certification simply means that it is considered to be highly accurate that, if it is callibrated appropriately, makes it suitable to be used in a court of law. Law enforcement grade breathalyzers are usually fuel-cell powered and must be approved by the Department of Transportation (DOT).
The AL6000Pro is not a fuel-cell powered breathalyzer, has lower accuracy (and is not alcohol-specific, meaning it'll read perfume, mouthwash, and beer just the same), and is not DOT approved.
If you were after something equivalent to police-grade breathalyzers, I would definitely recommend the Andatech Stealth Fuel Cell Breathalyser AL9000 (http://www.ozbreathalyzer.com.au/andatech-stealth-fuel-cell-breathalyser-al9000.html). This one is DOT-approved, highly accurate, and is the cheapest in the fuel cell breathalyzers range. It reads up to 0.4%BAC, gives a 4-digit reading and has 0.005 accuracy (whereas the AL6000PRO gives 0.01 accuracy). This one should be suitable for your personal use.
If you want something that gives you up to 0.5%BAC reading like those that the police use, then you can look at the Andatech AlcoSense Precision Fuel Cell Breathalyser (http://www.ozbreathalyzer.com.au/andatech-alcosense-precision-fuel-cell-breathalyser.html).
AL 6000 Pro - How long does it take to get ready for a reading? How often does the unit need to be calibrated and the cost?
It takes approximately 30 Seconds to be ready for a Reading. The unit will have to be re-calibrated every 200 Uses. Costs of Calibration is approximately $35 with Andatech Australia.
