MX6 iBrid

Portable Multi Gas

MX6 iBrid

• 1-6 Gas monitor

• Full-color LCD display

• 24 Sensor options including PID and IR

• iNet™ Ready and Docking Station™ compatible

CH4, Cl2, ClO2, CO, CO2, H2, H2S, HCl, HCN, LEL, NO2, NO, NH3, O2, PH3, PID, SO2

Get ready to see hazardous levels of oxygen, toxic and combustible gas, and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) like never before. The MX6 iBrid™ is more than an intelligent hybrid of Industrial Scientific’s best monitoring technologies. It’s the first gas monitor to feature a full-color LCD display screen. 

The display improves safety with clear readings in low light, bright light or anywhere in between. Whether the work is outside, inside or underground, it’s easy to see what gas hazards lurk in the immediate work environment. And a color display is more than eye-catching. It allows the user to step through instrument settings and functions with an intuitive menu and the instrument’s five-way navigation button. It even supports the option of on-board graphing for easily interpreted direct readings and recorded data. 

Plus, the MX6 iBrid is our most rugged instrument ever. It carries a lifetime warranty and is fully compatible with our DS2 Docking Station™, iNet DSand iNet™ Instrument Network. 




Color graphic liquid crystal display

Color graphics clearly convey information to the user.

Menu driven PEG (Portable Embedded GUI) operating system

Allows navigation through the instrument features using an easy to understand graphical user interface (GUI).

25 Interchangeable/field replaceable sensors including PID, infrared (IR, catalytic bead and electrochemical sensor options

Provides flexibility of monitoring in a variety of applications. Reduces operating costs and downtime associated with instrument/sensor service.

iNet™ Ready

Gives you Gas Detection as a Service on the world’s premier instrument management system. iNet provides factory monitoring and servicing of your gas detection fleet without the need to purchase a single piece of equipment.

Multilingual operation

Ability to select one of eight pre-programmed language configurations provides ease and flexibility for multilingual and international work forces.

5-way instrument navigation button

Up, down, left, right and enter positions in a single button provide the user with clear, tactile feedback as they navigate through the instrument graphic menu choices.

Diffusion or integrated sample-draw operation

One instrument can be carried for continuous monitoring in diffusion applications or be used with the integrated sampling pump for sample-draw applications such as confined space entry testing.

Interchangeable lithium-ion and alkaline power sources

A variety of available power sources including the latest rechargeable battery technology provides the user with around-the-clock monitoring capabilities and battery power available at a moment’s notice.

Extended range lithium-ion battery pack

Provides run times of up to 36 continuous hours and extends run times in high power applications when sampling pumps and PID or infrared sensors are in use.

Numeric, graphic and text display modes

Allows instrument display to be customized to provide a numeric readout of gas concentrations, a continuous graphical representation of hazard trends, or a simple go/no-go indication for easy user interpretation.

Extended datalogging memory

On-board memory provides storage of readings at 1-minute intervals for 6 gases for a minimum of 1 year.

On-board event logger

Provides capability to review the last 15 gas alarm events on the instrument display, giving historical feedback and information for incident review and evaluation.

User configurable operating system

Allows user to tune instrument to specific requirements for display, alarms, calibration, datalogging and other instrument operations.

Bump test and self test on start-up functionality

Allows the user to optionally configure the instrument to perform a self test or execute a bump test procedure during instrument startup – providing the ability to ensure that instruments are properly tested before each use.

Compatible with DS2 Docking Station™

Provides automatic calibration and record keeping, reducing overall instrument operating costs and ensuring proper documentation. Simplifies training and reduces time and calibration gas required for each calibration.

Overmolded composite/stainless steel construction

Rugged design and construction provides exceptional durability and immersion protection in the harshest industrial environments.

Electronically enhanced RFI protection

Enhanced design provides superior protection from sources of radio frequency interference eliminating false alarms and instrument malfunction.
