Cub

Personal VOC gas detector

The Cub personal VOC gas detector is worn within the breathing zone to detect volatile organic compounds, keeping you safe within your working environment.

The Cub is the worlds smallest and lightest wearable VOC gas detector. When worker exposure exceeds pre-set limits Cub’s audible, vibrating, and flashing LED alarms alert you to the gases present. Readings are displayed on its bright, back-lit LCD display with selectable data logging time.
