ALCOFRAME – unique noncontact express-test system for alcohol vapor detecting

ALCOFRAME is a system of non-contact express-test of alcoholic intoxication which was developed for detecting alcohols vapors in breath of person and thus controlling the personnel of the company. The main differences between ALCOFRAME and traditional alcohol testers are short measuring time (approx.1 sec.), also the system doesn’t require use of individual hygiene accessories (i.e. mouthpieces). It’s enough to make one exhalation in "frame" and then the system will automatically detect the presence of an exhalation, will analyze and display the test result in a second.


The express-test system provides:


The systems allows to detect alcohol vapor in exhalation in 1 second and is ready for the next analysis also in 1 sec. ALCOFRAME is equipped with an automatic control of the presence of person’s exhalation which allows work fully automatically and does not require service staff. Analysis of the exhalation is carried out contactless at the distance of 20-30 cm between person and the device.

ALCOFRAME can work independently or may be integrated with company’s access and security system (i.e. turnstile system) which provides totally automatic personnel control.

ALCOFRAME requires only minimal maintenance - a periodic cleaning of mirrors and reflectors. Cleaning of the reflector is not a mandatory procedure and its frequency is defined by a user while the systems reports if mirror cleaning is necessary with the light signal (double blinking blue every 10 seconds) or service message on operators computer. The device operates with self-test mode.

The device has a universal connection to the access control system that allows to integrate ALCOFRAME with any existing database for conducting detailed statistics on test results and comparing them with the employee ID. In addition you can create a special database of all devices installed on the plant, which will keep track of all data analysis. Today it is possible to integrate ALCOFRAMES with access control system (ACS) on dry contact interfaces, Ethernet network (UDP protocol) and through the card reader (Wiegand). Without ACS controller ALCOFRAME can operate in autonomous mode and measurement results are carried out through a special software.

The analysis results can be stored in a database for further statistic processing for different time periods.



ALCOFRAME is a patented device. Also, the device is certified and complies with the requirements of normative documents of GOST 27570.0-87 (the safety of electrical appliances).
