AlcoHAWK Beacon Breathalyzer
Each of the AlcoHAWK breathalyzers has features and capabilities that make it unique from our other breath alcohol analyzer models. The AlcoHAWK Beacon breathalyzer, for example, has many of the same features as our other AlcoHAWK breathalyzers, but with some more advanced elements added such as a maintenance self-check, test counter, test memory, audio & visual BAC alerts, and an ambient temperature display.
The AlcoHAWK Beacon is our latest unit with a folding mouthpiece. Blow into the folding mouthpiece for an accurate BAC reading in seconds. The AlcoHAWK Beacon also includes removable mouthpiece covers that allow you to test multiple individuals in a sanitary fashion. This unit has an edgy design and is equipped with a back-lit LCD display. The Beacon is an ideal unit for serious screening of yourself and others.
The AlcoHAWK Beacon includes three mouthpieces, owner's manual, quick start guide, and a 1 year warranty.
Maintenance Check Technology™: Allows you to periodically run a unit self-check to help you determine whether or not your unit needs servicing.
Audio & Visual Alerts: The back light will display colors corresponding with preset BAC% levels and an alarm will sound.
Test Counter: Keep track of the number of tests run on the unit.
Temperature Display: The AlcoHAWK Beacon displays the ambient temperature on startup to help you operate the unit within its optimal temperature range of 50° - 104° F (10° - 40° C).
Electric Air Flow Sensor: The AlcoHAWK Beacon contains an electronic airflow sensor to ensure the user continues to blow through the unit. This is a vital new function because only samples of air from the deep lung are proportionate to blood alcohol content. This new innovative sensor ensures the user exhales through the mouthpiece over the 4-5 second exhale. This is an important feature for professional screening to prevent an intentional short exhale which could affect accuracy.
Sample Concentration Sensor: The AlcoHAWK Beacon contains a software upgrade to allow the unit to track if an even alcohol concentration is detected in the sample. This cutting-edge technology provides another method of ensuring breath sample integrity.
Folding Mouthpiece Design: The AlcoHAWK Beacon features a folding mouthpiece design that allows the unit to be easily carried in a pocket or a purse while maintaining the benefits and accuracy of a mouthpiece air capture system. The Beacon also comes with replaceable mouthpiece covers to enable sanitary testing on multiple individuals.
Sensor Recognition Technology™ : Monitors for certain types of abnormal sensor conditions.
Menu Option Features in the AlcoHAWK Beacon
BAC Alert Level: The unit's backlight will change according to the BAC reading. Set the BAC alert level to 0.02, 0.03, 0.05, or 0.08% BAC. The default setting is 0.05% BAC.
Temperature Scale: This option allows you to switch between Celsius (C) and Fahrenheit (F) for the temperature display. The default setting is Fahrenheit (F).
Convert Units: Use this option to change the unit of alcohol concentration shown for tests. You can choose between %BAC (U.S.A), g/L, or ‰BAC. The default setting is %BAC (U.S.A), the U.S.A standard.
Test Counter: Use this option to keep track of the number of tests run since the counter was last reset.
