Convenient Menu

With just two buttons, the ALERT J5 easily allows you to capture breath samples, print test results with the optional print function, and recall previous tests in seconds. With extra large buttons, users can operate the ALERT J5 while wearing gloves, so it's perfect for law enforcement and healthcare applications.

Evidential accuracy

The ALERT J5 uses a platinum electrochemical sensor (fuel cell) – the standard in police issued breath testers. The long term stability of the sensor means you can count on accurate results year after year*.

Optional Printing

When breath sample evidence is required, the ALERT J5 has onboard infrared (IR) and RS-232 printing capabilities. That means it can be configured to print using the optional portable thermal printer.

* All breath alcohol testing devices require periodic maintenance and calibration to ensure proper working order.
