The FC5 Hornet is a dedicated passive testing alcohol tester. It uses a 1″ full sized platinum fuel cell sensor and a double pump system to accurately determine if the subject’s breath or a bottle contains alcohol. Automatic mode triggers the pump to extract the breath sample when the subject blows into the inlet. Manual mode is useful for uncooperative subjects who refuse to blow into the inlet. Container mode is used for detection of the presence of alcohol in unknown liquids. The Hornet displays POS when the sample alcohol concentration is above the preset limit and NEG when the alcohol concentration is below the limit. With no mouthpieces required for the operation of the FC5 Hornet, the FC5 is perfect for rapid mass testing.
