FC5 Hornet – Passive Testing Only

Model Drugs Tested

The economical FC5 Hornet from Lifeloc Technologies is a new generation of alcohol screener for use in zero tolerance environments such as schools, traffic police, probation, jails, mining and related safety sensitive industries. Screening for the presence of alcohol has never been easier. No mouthpieces or special attachments are required. Using icons to eliminate misinterpretation due to language barriers, the FC5 Hornet is simple to learn, operate and read.

Designed to replace older technology alcohol wands, the FC5 Hornet is easy to use with new features never before available in passive only screening testers. The FC5 is alcohol specific and uses the same 1 inch diameter platinum fuel cell used in Lifeloc law enforcement breathalyzers. Because our fuel cell is 50% larger than those used in the traditional alcohol wands you benefit from larger breath sample size, rapid response and reset times, and long working life.

Unlike the older alcohol wands, the FC5 Hornet comes standard with three operating test modes and an automatic day/night backlit display. For safety, the operator can see the test results without revealing the display to the subject. The device comes with a protective safety-yellow silicone jacket to guard against bumps and falls plus a crushproof carry case. The Hornet can be easily concealed in a purse or pocket.
