A professional breath alcohol testing device must be able to withstand some abuse. The Alcotest 6820 new
design and quality workmanship make this unit ideal for use in demanding conditions. Thanks to its durable
material it is highly resistant to rough weather conditions such as cold or moisture, and it satisfies protection
class IP 54.
High user comfort
Testing intoxicated people requires a high degree of concentration. This is where the true value of an easy
to operate device comes into play. All measurement functions are controlled with a single button. Easily
understandable full-text messages on a large, backlit display guide you safely through the alcohol test. An LED
display and acoustic signals support the visual display and report the completion of a test measurement. Two
menu buttons are used for navigation and the collection of statistical data.
Alcotest 6820 is also equipped with the proven electrochemical Dräger sensor. This sensor is characterised
by very short response times coupled with precision and durability. Test results are always reliable regardless
whether the temperature is -5 °C or +50 °C. Even with a high alcohol content, the sensor provides fast accurate
results. And this is true for both active as well as passive measurements.
Alcotest 6820 offers a balanced, ergonomic design. Its compact form makes it especially easy to hold and
operate with only one hand. The mouthpiece of the Alcotest 6820 unit is easily snapped into the holder even
when it’s dark thanks to its intuitive shape – regardless whether you are right-handed or left-handed or whether
testing traffic moving on the right or left side of the road. The display is always in clear view. After use, the
mouthpiece is just as easily and hygienically removed again.
The patented Dräger mouthpieces prevent any manipulation attempts. The optional return valve simultaneously
ensures maximum hygiene. Alcotest 6820 uses the same reliable mouthpieces such as Alcotest models 6510
Data processing and documentation
The expanded memory capacity of Alcotest 6820 is able to record up to 5000 test results. An optical interface
enables wireless transmission of data to the Dräger mobile printer directly on site. Data is transferable to the
PC via USB connection and the same connection can be used to configure the device.
