A professional breath alcohol testing device must be able to withstand some abuse; the Draeger Alcotest 6820’s design and quality workmanship make this professional breathalyser ideal for use in demanding conditions Thanks to its durable material, it is highly resistant to rough weather conditions such as cold or moisture, and it satisfies protection class IP 54. The 6820 fuel cell sensor is characterised by very short response times and results are always reliable regardless even to extremes such as -5 °C or +50 °C.

The patented Dräger mouthpieces prevent any manipulation attempts and an optional return valve simultaneously ensures maximum hygiene. The Draeger 6820 uses the same reliable mouthpieces as entire Draeger Alcotest breathalyser range.

Testing intoxicated people requires a high degree of concentration and this is where the true value of an easy to operate professional breathalyser comes into play. All measurement functions are controlled with a single button. Easily understandable full-text messages on a large, backlit display guide you safely through the alcohol test. An LED display and acoustic signals support the visual display and report the completion of a test measurement. Two menu buttons are used for navigation and the collection of statistical data.

The expanded memory capacity of the 6820 breathalyzer is able to record up to 5000 test results.
