Who is MSA – The Safety Company?

MSA – The Safety Company was founded over 100 years ago by mine engineer John T. Ryan Sr. and George H. Deike. Recognizing the critical importance of dependable and safe mining equipment, they went straight to one of this country’s great thinkers: Thomas Edison. Edison helped Ryan and Deike create the electric cap lamp which helped to reduce mine explosions by 75%.

Over the last century, MSA has continued to value the importance of workplace safety and has led the way by harnessing new technologies to produce state-of-the-art, high-quality products, instruments, and service.

What is the Ultima X5000 Gas Detector?

The future of gas detection is now! Introducing the Ultima X5000, MSA’s brand new gas detection device! The inspiration of the X5000 gas detection valve came from MSA’s goal to make the gas detector so smart, that it can make frequent adjustments to bring itself back to optimum performance and to notify users when a calibration is necessary (reducing the frequency of calibrations).

The X5000 works smarter through Bluetooth wireless technology. This new, modern technology reduces setup time by at least 50% and allows the capability to check status and get alerts from up to 75 ft (23 m) away. Along with Bluetooth capability, the X5000 features DualSensing, which allows it to be connected to 2 sensors at the same time, each with an independent analog output.


The Ultima X5000 provides users with a multitude of benefits:

  • Very bright LED display (visible up to 15 meters away)
  • Modern technology
  • Bluetooth functionality
  • Intuitive & user-friendly
  • No tools required
