Cub 10.6 eV

Personal VOC gas detector

The Cub 10.6 eV personal VOC gas detector is worn within the breathing zone to detect volatile organic compounds, keeping you safe within your working environment.

Our personal VOC gas detector is the worlds smallest and lightest wearable VOC gas detector. When worker exposure exceeds pre-set limits, the VOC detectors 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.
