ELAN™ Personal Alcohol Tester

ELAN™ Personal Alcohol TesterELAN is a personal, microcomputer controlled breath tester designed to measure an individual’s blood alcohol concentration at one point in time.

The electronic signal produced by an individual’s breath alcohol is converted into a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) level. This accuracy of any breath alcohol test is dependent upon the relationship between the concentration of alcohol in the blood and deep lung breath. The accepted ratio that defines this relationship is 2100 to 1.


ELAN is very easy to use and understand. The following guidelines will help explain its operation.

On: To turn ELAN on, press the power switch on the front of the unit. The beeper will sound once and the led display will indicate a count down sequence from 6 while the sensor is being conditioned for a test.

Ready: When the count down sequence is complete, 00 will illuminate.

Blow: Exhale steadily into the mouthpiece for five seconds. The beeper will sound once to indicate the end of the sample.

Reading: The alcohol level will be indicated on the 3 digit led display. The results will then flash for approximately 5 seconds until the unit turns off automatically.

0ff: To turn ELAN off, press the power switch on the front of the unit The display will indicate OFF and the beeper will sound once.

Low Battery: ELAN will indicate a low battery voltage by displaying the red BATT LOW Personal Alcohol Testerled.
