  PAS V helps formulate probable cause without the subject's involvement.

"Sniffs" breath, open containers or enclosed spaces for the presence of alcohol.

PAS V Passive Alcohol Sensor LED Flashlight

The PAS V is the next generation of passive alcohol sensors. It combines: a) LED 3-mode flashlight with b) a dynamic sampling system and c) an alcohol sensor to "sniff" the ambient air, breath, open containers or enclosed spaces for the presence of alcohol with a push of a button. The LED light offers 3 modes: high, low and strobe while providing up to 3Xs longer battery life per charge.

This hand-held, rapid alcohol detection instrument uses a platinum electrochemical fuel cell sensor of high alcohol specificity, accuracy and stability. The operator-controlled sampling system guarantees accurate detection of alcohol, and is especially suited for quick subsequent measurements making it ideal for use at DUI checkpoints or any Zero Tolerance applications.

The unit is designed to be used to check alcohol presence/absence with or without a subject's direct participation. There is no mouthpiece and the subject does not need to blow directly into the intake port. The instrument is easy to use and can be operated with one hand, leaving the other completely free.  It has been designed to withstand the physical conditions experienced in operational situations and is resistant to adverse weather conditions and mechanical shocks.

In addition to the LED lamp module, the PAS V now allows you to choose which of two secondary investigative lights you would like built into the back of the flashlight tube. You may select between the standard green HGN or the new blue UV light.

The PAS V Screening System comes complete with:

  • Carrying Case
  • AC Adapter
  • Auto Adapter
  • Recharging System
  • Rechargeable Battery
  • Quick Check Card
  • Instructional DVD
  • Instruction Manual
  • Calibration Manual
  • Twelve-Month Warranty on parts and labor. Two-year warranty on fuel cell.

Product Name

PAS IV Passive Alcohol Sensor


Combines police-grade flashlight with device for detecting low levels of airborne alcohol in exhaled breath, in vehicles and other enclosed spaces, or over beverage containers


3-Mode LED lamp module: High, Low and Strobe. 1000 Lumens. Optimized light dispersion with intense center beam                     

Alcohol Sensor

Platinum Elctrochemical fuel cell generates an electrical current in response to alcohol vapor. The microcontroller will automatically turn off the sensor after about 45 seconds, should you forget to turn off the sensor.

Cell Heater

Built-in heater regulates fuel cell temperatur at 104F (40C) whenver the flashlight is on.


Fuel cell detects only alcohol. It is unaffected by acteone, paint or glue fumes, foods, confectionary, methane, and practically any other substance likely to be found in the breath.


Performed at the factory. Additional field calibration procedure provided. Calibration checks are recommended every six (6) months or more frequently if the unit appears to be losing sensitivity.

Air Sample

Pump runs for 5 seconds and draws in a 1 cu. in. (15ml) air sample (nominal figures).


Color-coded 9-element LED bargraph display.

Peak Reading

2-10 seconds at 104F (40C). Longer at lower temperatures unless fuel cell heater is on.

Recovery Time

30 seconds - 2 minutes after a positive reading; longer if fuel cell is overloaded or heater is off.

Power Supply

Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMH) rechargeable battery (no memory). Charger operable from 12-volt DC or 110-volt AC power.

Battery Capacity

2.3 amp-hrs; good for 80-90 minutes of continuous use if charged using the Reset procedure. Store unit in the charger to keep fully charged between use.

Charging Time

Approx. 3.5 hrs to recharge fully discharged battery using the AC/DC Fast Charger Cradle Unit and the Reset procedure.


Operating temperature range: 0 to 104F (-18 to +40C). The PAS IV housing is weather resistant.


12" (300mm) long x 1.5" (38mm) diameter, increasing to 2.2" (56mm) at head.
