The Draeger 6510 is a Breathalyzer used widely by the Police around the world to measure Breath Alcohol Content (BAC) at an accuracy of ± 0.005%BAC at 0.100%BAC. It can be operated with and without a mouthpiece. It is fitted with a 1/4 inch Draeger alcohol sensor reacts specifically to alcohol, and features very short response times. Even with a very high alcohol content, the device responds quickly with the results. The results are then clearly displayed as unabbreviated text messages on a backlit graphic display accompanied with a corresponding LED color and an audible signal.

The Alcotest 6510 features efficient power consumption, various sampling modes, language options and test numbering system. A pair of fresh AA Alkaline batteries is sufficient for more than 1500 tests conducted at room temperature. Calibration is recommended every 6 months to ensure the defensibility of the results.

4 Sampling Modes

  • Automatic The device automatically samples the air sample near the end of a breath sample
  • Passive The device samples the air sample without a mouthpiece at the press of a button. Subjects hygienically blow over the breathalyzer without physical contact. While passive mode provides good accuracy when used correctly, active mode is recommend if the subjects are not familiar with the device.
    This is useful for testing for alcohol out of a bottle or uncooperative subject who refuses a mouthpiece.
  • Manual The device samples the air sample at the press of a button. This is useful when the subject is not able to blow in a firm and sustained manner.
  • Conditional Volume The operator may adjust the amount of volume require to trigger the sampling system. This is useful when the subject is not able to sustain his exhalation for a prolonged period.
