Personal VOC Gas Detector: Cub 10.6 eV

The Cub 10.6 eV personal VOC gas detector is a wearable device that is worn inside the breathing zone for the detection of volatile organic compounds, keeping workers safe within their working environment.

The Cub 10.6 eV is the most compact and lightest wearable VOC gas detector in the world. When worker exposure surpasses pre-configured limits Cub’s audible, vibrating and flashing LED alarms inform you that there are gases present. The bright, back-lit LCD display presents all readings with selectable data logging time.

Independent verification has shown that Cub’s patented photoionization detection (PID) sensor technology is best performing where speed, accuracy and humidity resistant operations are concerned.

The Cub 10.6 eV personal VOC gas detector comes equipped as a standard instrument with 10.6 eV lamp for accurate detection of an extensive range of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) to parts-per-million (ppm) levels.

ION Science also offers the Cub TAC 10.0 eV benzene detector.
