The C16 is a great device for gas leak detection, personal safety, spot checks, confined entry, or even datalogging of gas levels in a workplace. The C16 is a great portable monitor, but can also serve as fixed monitor placed in a location where it logs data over long periods of time.
The C16 is a mulit-gas sensor that will allow for a variety of gasses to be measured with the same device. Choose the gas sensor you require, or choose additional sensors here, to add to your order. Each gas sensor is listed with a standard range however each sensor can be calibrated to custom ranges. Contact us for details on gas sensors you do not see here, or gas ranges you may require.

- Standard “D” cell battery and rechargeable backup battery
- One-hand pistol grip design
- Easy to read back-lit graphics liquid crystal display
- Instantaneous and timed-sampling modes of operation
- Visual and Audible alarms
- Internal data-logger with RS-232 output
The Series C16 PortaSens II portable gas leak detector is a versatile tool for performing regular leak checks in gas storage areas, around process equipment and piping or in confined spaces prior to entry. Designed for easy one-hand operation, the detector contains an internal sample pump and a flexible sampling wand to allow pinpoint location of the source of leakage. A large character display insures that measured values are easily visible, and a back-light for the display insures readability in low or no light conditions.
A unique feature of the C16 detector is its ability to measure a variety of different gases by simply inserting the appropriate sensor for that gas. This means that one detector can be used to measure over 30 different gases or vapors, reducing the need to purchase individual detectors for each type of gas. And sensors can be changed quickly and easily, without the need for calibration when a sensor change is made.
Sensors used in the PortaSens II are ATI’s newest miniaturized smart sensor modules. Each sensor module is actually a sensor, amplifier, and memory module in one compact package. Because of this design, sensor modules can be calibrated independently and simply plugged into any detector for immediate use. When installed in a detector, calibration data is loaded into the microprocessor so that no adjustments are needed. The result is that a detector can, for example, go from phosgene measurement to ammonia measurement in less than one minute.
PortaSens II Gas Detectors are supplied in a padded
carrying case for easy storage and transport. Space is
provided for an extra battery plus up to two sensor keepers,
which means up to 8 extra sensors ready for immediate use.
The following components are standard:
- PortaSens Gas Detector
- Spare Filters
- 10” Teflon Lined Sampling Wand
- RS-232 Output Cable
- Battery Charger
- Spare “D” Cell Battery
- Sensor Keeper for up to 4 additional sensors
- Calibration “T” Fitting

Changing Sensors in the C16:
Sensors in the C16 can be changed easily. See image below.
Remove 2 thumbscrews from the sensor cover, remove the sensor cover, and swap sensors. If you are using the sensor keeper (included with the C16) spare sensors can be kept warm and ready to use. Spare sensor keeper allows for use of a battery to keep power to the sensors. Therefore, after swapping sensors there is virtually no delay in measuring your new gas!
Datalogging with the C16:
The C16 is capable of onboard data logging of your gas measurements. All data logging cables and software are included with the C16. Datalogging is easy to set-up and easy to use.
The C16 is capable of storing 11,520 data points. Data logging intervals of 1, 5, 10, and 15 minutes are possible. The following data logging is possible:
- 1 minute interval = 8 days of data
- 5 minute interval = 40 days of data
- 10 minute interval = 80 days of data
- 15 minute interval = 120 days of data
The screenshot below shows the datalogging set-up of the C16. A very simple interface is used to set-up your data logging software and download.
Data is logged with C16 and downloaded. All data is exported to a CSV file that can be graphed or shown as a table with common spreadsheet software on your computer.
