Negative Gas Readings in Portable Gas Detectors

Although it is physically impossible for the atmosphere to contain a negative quantity of a substance, a gas detector can display a negative reading on either the Lower Explosive Limit (LEL) or toxic channel. 

Negative readings are a result of the detector software interpreting the sensor output. LEL Sensors detect gas in a different way to toxic sensors but they both create a signal (electrical output) that is directly proportional to the amount of gas detected.
