With the AlcoMate Premium, ASC offers the most advanced, accurate and convenient breath testing system available.You can count on the Premium breathalyzer to serve all your personal and/or professional alcohol breath testing needs, as it is DOT Approved for law-enforcement grade accuracy and US Coast Guard Approved to satisfy the requirements of all marine vessels in US waters to have a breathalyzer-on-board. The Premium breathalyzer also incorporates patented pre-calibrated replaceable sensor module technology to eliminate the need for calibration service, saving you the downtime and inconvenience, as well as extending the lifetime of the device.
The Problem with Re-Calibration
One of the most important things to understand when using a breath alcohol tester is that all typical breath alcohol sensors require periodic re-calibration in order to maintain accuracy. It is inherent to alcohol sensing technology, much like gasoline engines in cars require oil changes in order to function properly. Most breathalyzers have to be physically mailed to a service center along with a fee to get this re-calibration done, and you will be without your breath alcohol tester until the service is done. Even if re-calibration is done on schedule, the service does not restore any wear on the alcohol sensor, and eventually your breathalyzer will fail completely due to the sensor breaking down.
The Solution: Pre-Calibrated Replaceable Sensor Modules!
The AlcoMate® Premium eliminates the problems of re-calibration by eliminating the need for re-calibration completely! No more downtime, no more back-and-forth mailing, no more gradual sensor breakdown, because you replace each sensor module with a new pre-calibrated one each time! Because the sensor modules are pre-calibrated, there is nothing you have to do but simply swap out the old one with the new one.
Differences between the AlcoMate® Premium and AlcoMate® Prestige
The AlcoMate® Prestige is the original breathalyzer that introduced pre-calibrated replaceable sensor technology to the market. The AlcoMate® Premium is a 2nd generation breathalyzer that improves upon the pre-calibrated sensor technology. Both the Prestige and Premium breathalyzers offer the sensor technology, but there are key differences:
|4-Digit Display (Clear LCD)||3-Digit Display (Simple LED)|
|2nd Generation Sensor Modules (Re-inforced Assembly for Increased Durability)||1st Generation Sensor Modules (Original Patent-Pending Technology)|
|Sensor Replacement takes just a few seconds with the Easy-Replace Panel||Sensor Replacement takes up to a few minutes due to some required manual dissembly, and is more prone to error|
|Internal Mouthpiece Storage Slot (x2)||N/A|
|Silver Color Only||Silver and Red Color Options|
|Weight: 1.7 oz (without batteries)||Weight: 1.8 oz (without batteries)|
