AP4C-F is a chemical warfare agent detector to be used in a battlefield or urban environment on moving platforms for reconnaissance missions. AP4C-F detects in real time and simultaneously almost all chemical warfare agents and numerous toxic industrial materials.

All nerve agents, blister agents, and blood agents can be detected thus making the AP4C-F an instrument of safety. AP4C-F can detect all those agents under vapour, aerosol or liquid form.

AP4C-F is installed as a fixed alarm system and does not require any other maintenance or human intervention during one year, other than the addition of one litre of water per month. AP4C-F has the same capacity of chemical detection and the same specifications as the AP4C. It is typically installed at the air intake of buildings or critical infrastructures.

Set up procedure, calibration, filter change, purge procedure, and switch off procedure are NOT necessary. AP4C-F can be networked with other instruments. Upon alarm it can trigger the closing of the building ventilation system
