The 580B OVM photoionization detector and data logger by Thermo Scientific is a sophisticated portable solution for monitoring organic vapors (except methane). Suitable for a wide range of applications, including emergency response, the Thermo 580B is an ideal choice for renting, as its simple controls make it easy to train team members on. Lightweight and highly accurate, the 580B can be swiftly deployed in any situation where on-site monitoring of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) is essential.

The Thermo 580B is available for rent from Environmental Equipment & Supply by the day, week or month. Contact our office for more information, or to request a quote.

Features and Benefits

When powered by an 11.6ev lamp, the 580B offers critical advantages for today’s environmental professionals. Key features and benefits of this highly functional PID include:

  • Ease of use — The Thermo 580B features a single grip and accessible keypad which provide convenient one-handed operation for technicians in the field. The keypad itself comprises only seven buttons. A large, easy-to-read LCD screen walks the user through the device’s various monitoring programs, which include a maximum signal hold function to help isolate chemical leaks.

  • Portability — Weighing only 6 lbs., the 580B can be deployed in nearly any field condition. The unit runs on a set of internal batteries that deliver up to eight hours of operation on a single charge. An onboard positive displacement pump safely facilitates sample collection and remote detection without the use of support gases. It also doesn’t require a sample to be sent to a lab for further analysis. A specially designed case and moisture filter allow it to withstand impacts, extreme weather and chemical interaction.

  • Precision — The 580B can be calibrated to detect VOCs at a range between 0-2000ppm. The unit features a microprocessor-based design that makes it easy to set custom response factors. Onboard memory allows for the storage and recall of up to four backup calibration routines with the touch of a button.

  • Data logging — The 580B allows users to store up to 700 date- and time-stamped data points in its onboard memory. This data can be recalled on screen or downloaded to a PC via an RS232 port for further analysis.


Various potential applications exist for the 580B. Due to its portability and precision, the unit is ideal for environmental remediation, including soil and water contaminant detection. It can also be used for industrial hygiene monitoring, as well as leak and spill detection in underground storage tanks and other applications. Many of our clients also use the 580B for emergency response and confined space entry monitoring.
