PT Core Fuel-cell Sensor Technology: The PT Core sensor is an exciting new technology available exclusively in the AlcoHAWK PT500. This new technology incorporates an electro-chemical fuel-cell detection system. PT Core Technology offers many advantages over semi-conductor based technologies such as:

  • Better linear accuracy away from the point of calibration
  • Less chance of getting false positives from interfering substances such as keytones, which can be seen in conditions such as diabetes or people on fad diets
  • Improved sensor life – The PT Core sensor is designed to be robust and last for thousands of tests in fields such as Law Enforcement

Additional Product Features

Easy-to-Read LCD Display: The AlcoHAWK PT500 offers a large, easy-to-read LCD display to make the unit the most informative and understandable AlcoHAWK Series product on the market.

Adjustable Blowing Time: The AlcoHAWK PT500 is the first AlcoHAWK that allows you to control the blowing time. The blowing time may be adjusted for testing subjects with poor lung capacity, such as a smoker, or for testing subjects with a large lung capacity, such as a high-endurance runner. This makes the AlcoHAWK PT500 ideal for accurate and reliable testing of a variety of individuals. The AlcoHAWK PT500's blowing time is adjustable from 3 to 8 seconds.

Temperature Display: The AlcoHAWK PT500 constantly displays the ambient temperature during use to help you operate the unit during its optimal temperature range of 50° - 104° F (10° - 40° C).

Warning Level Indicator: The AlcoHAWK PT500 features an audible and visual warning when a subject's BAC surpasses the adjustable BAC alarm point.

Pressure Scan Sensor: Ensures that the user blows with enough force to start a test and also ensures that they continue to blow through the unit throughout the entire test.

Automatic Pump: Simple one button sampling with no manual activation of pump required.
