Michigan Police Improve Safety with FC10 Breahtalyzers

The Lifeloc FC Series of breath alcohol instruments cover the full spectrum of police use from economical alcohol-specific screeners to portable roadside evidential devices provisioned with printing and computer interface. All units come standard with both passive and direct testing and depending on the unit include a variety of features such as, extensive test memory, wireless keyboard and printing, remote web-based diagnostics, and software tailored to the specific needs of your agency.

When used with the Lifeloc EASYCAL® station, FC Series instruments offer fully automatic calibration, calibration verifications and record keeping functionality whether in the field or the lab.

All FC Series instruments provide fast, accurate results with rapid repeatability in both direct and passive test modes. With our patented EasyTab™ Mouthpiece, Officer contact with the "wet" end of the mouthpiece is completely avoided. Simply push on the tab and eject the mouthpiece.

Unlike other devices on the market, the FC Series utilize a 64 character backlit display with full text prompts (no error codes to remember). For long life and test reliability, we use a 1 inch (2.54 mm) platinum fuel cell with a lifetime warranty. For passive testing, a unique double-pump breath sampling system ensures rapid testing of multiple subjects. No attachment necessary. Advanced security and lock-out features eliminate unauthorized operation and faulty tests.

The FC Series of portable breath analyzers are US manufactured, CE marked and NHTSA approved as evidential instruments. International certifications are available.

These things are so easy to calibrate, it is ridiculous. I hope CHP buys more of your units, they are great!

The simple manual testing override is an outstanding feature to obtain field results for the infirmed or resistant client.

I really like the photo sensor controlled back light.  Really like the recycle time and the fact that unlike the FST it stays on.

After evaluating your PBT we have decided to purchase it. We found that its results are quite close to the subsequent evidential unit results and it is quite simple to use.  Thank you for the chance to conduct a T&E on your device.

Through my years in Law Enforcement, I have had the opportunity to use several types of PBTs. I found that during the time I had the Lifeloc FC10 and in its use, it was by far the most impressive of the PBTs I've used during my career. With the FC10, there was no "down time" in between uses and I was able to use the FC10, one subject after another, which proved very effective on numerous occasions when large "underage parties" were located. The Lifeloc PBT also proved effective, not only during "automatic testing" (normal feature) but during passive testing. The "manual testing" feature was also beneficial. The Lifeloc PBT, in my opinion, was the easiest of all PBTs that I have had the chance to use and would recommend.
