Alcometers | Lion 500

The lion alcolmeter® 500 uses the Lion fuel cell sensor, so the reading is very unlikely to be affected by anything that occurs naturally on the subject’s breath.

The lion alcolmeter® 500 is used extensively by Police Forces around the world, mainly for screening but also for evidential testing process. A variant of the lion alcolmeter® 500 is Type Approved by the Home Office, Great Britain, for UK Police use.

The operator switches the instrument on and, when instructed, attaches a new mouthpiece to the sampling port. He or she then instructs the subject to blow through it until the sample is taken. A short time later their alcohol level is shown on the clear, easy-to-read display: this is illuminated, for use at night.
