The AL6000 analyzes a breath sample to detect alcohol in the lungs. This reading is then converted to blood alcohol concentration (BRAC – mg/L). The AL6000 uses an advanced oxide semiconductor sensor to detect alcohol. The AL6000 is the first and only breathalyzer that features Pre-Calibrated Alcohol Sensor Modules to eliminate the need for recalibration. Just snap out, snap in and you’re ready to go!
The UK Drink Drive Reading is 0.35mg/l on the AL6000 Unit we supply.

Drinking alcohol in ANY amount may impair the ability to drive. There is no “safe” level of alcohol intake before driving. Don’t drink and drive.
Note: The maximum reading the device can show is 0.40% BAC or 2.00mg/l BRAC. A true BAC of 0.40% or above may result in the onset of coma or even death by respiratory arrest. A reading of 0.40% may indicate an acutely dangerous condition, but may also indicate a sampling error (such as liquid alcohol blown into the device). Please carefully read the Warnings section of this manual before operating the device.
Remove the battery cover at the bottom of the unit and replace the old batteries with two new 1.5V “AA” batteries. Make sure to properly align the batteries by looking at the +/- marks.
