Available Options:


Safe and easy to use
Automatic sampling and calibration processes make the instrument easy to use. All measurement functions are con- trolled via a single key, while menu navigation is by two menu keys. The special way the mouthpieces are designed means they can be fitted quickly and securely even in poor light conditions.

Rapid ready for use
The very latest in electronics technology ensures that the instrument is ready for use in no time at all.

Quick and precise analysis
The 1/4″-DrägerSensor with its optimised gas dynamics measures specifically alcohol. Even at high alcohol concentrations direct gas paths, fast pneumatic components and short reaction times of the sensor ensure the measurement result will be displayed quickly.

‘Slide‘n‘click’ mouthpiece
The shape of the mouthpiece means you will intuitively t it correctly. An air outlet which cannot be obstructed prevents any manipulation when the breath sample is given. A spacer on the mouthpiece prevents the test subject‘s lips from coming into contact with the instrument‘s housing, and at the same time may be used as a mouthpiece ejector. The individually packaged mouthpieces can be attached to the instrument easily and hygienically.

Practical design
Thanks to its compact dimensions, the Dräger Alcotest 5820 even tucks into a shirt pocket. The separation of the grip area and the mouthpiece automatically ensures a certain distance between the hand of the operator and the mouth of the person to be tested.

Integrated datalogger
The latest 100 measurement results with their respective test numbers are stored in the datalogger. Individual results can be called up from the log by pressing the menu keys.

Convenient to use
All measurement functions can be operated with just one button to make it easier for you to perform the test. The large back-lit display is easy to understand due to its full-text messages which guide you securely through the alcohol test. An LED and audible signal complement the display and indicate the end of a measurement process. Two menu buttons are used to navigate through the menu, enabling you to perform functions such as reviewing the last test results.
