Industrial Scientific said the MX6
meets CSA Standards C22.2 No. 152 and C22.2 No. 157 as intrinsically
safe for use in Class I, Group A, B, C and D hazardous locations. This
certification applies to the use of the instrument both in diffusion
mode and with an integrated sampling pump.

The MX6 iBrid is the first gas monitor to feature a full-color LCD
display screen. The MX6 colour display improves safety with clear
readings in low-light or bright-light conditions. It also supports
on-board graphing and a menu-driven PEG (Portable Embedded GUI)
operating system. This allows users to step through instrument
functions using an intuitive menu and the instrument’s five-way
navigation button. The MX6 also adds flexibility for multilingual and
international work forces with one of eight available pre-programmed
