Gas-SelectX gas mixture for 3 gasesFOX understands that for a variety of common gas monitoring applications, customers need to get an easily configurable meter quickly. FOX is offering the Model FT1 as an advanced meter that can be easily configured in the field - including calibration choices.

The Gas-SelectX® firmware can be easily accessed and configured from either the meter’s display buttons or by using a free software tool - FT1 View™ - available for use on a laptop or PC and connected via a USB port on the FT1.
