Passive Testing without a Mouthpiece
The PAS Sentry uses passive alcohol test technology to sniff the breath of a person for the presence of alcohol. To perform a test the operator presses the Start button and the subject blows at the PAS Sentry from a distance of several inches. A fan inside the device pulls in a portion of the subjects breath to analyze for alcohol. Because the device does not use mouthpieces or batteries there is no operating cost to use the PAS Sentry.
Light Bar Indicates Presence of Alcohol
The PAS Sentry uses a series of colored lights to indicate the presence and relative amount of alcohol on a persons breath. A person with no alcohol on their breath lights only the first green light. If a persons breath contains alcohol a series of yellow and red lights turn on to indicate the presence and approximate amount of alcohol in the breath.
Fuel Cell Sensor Specific for Alcohol
The PAS Sentry uses a fuel cell to detect alcohol. Fuel cell sensors are typically used in top-of-the-line evidential breath alcohol testers because of their ability to detect low amounts of alcohol and because they are specific to alcohol. That means that operators using the PAS Sentry can have a high degree of confidence that positive results are due only to alcohol.
Wall Mount for Easy Access
The PAS Sentry easily mounts on a wall so that it is readily accessible for testing. This feature is particularly useful in settings such as shelters and halfway houses that routinely test clients every time they enter the facility. The Velcro mounting tape included with the kit makes it easy for staff to remove the PAS Sentry from the wall to store the unit when not in use.
