Simple and sound gas detection

The GasAlertMicroClip multi-gas detector from BW Technologies for Honeywell, has been very successful in the gas detection industry. With a simple one button operation and an innovative design, the detector has sparked considerable interest.

The GasAlertMicroClip is easy to use and eliminates time spent training the end user. Calibration is required only once every 180 days with a simple one-button automatic procedure. The unit recharges in three hours and is powered by a lithium polymer battery.

As gas detection and micro-processing technologies have experienced major advancements in housing and sensor design, the GasAlertMicroClip has been reaping the rewards. Featuring a sleek design, the clip weighs just 160 grams, the same as a 20 GB iPod. Just ten years ago, BW Technologies’ MultiMax, featuring the cutting edge technology of the time, weighed 820 grams. The new detector is less than one fifth of that weight, while offering a significant increase in features.

The clip is encased in fully immersible, water-resistant material with a built-in concussion-proof boot. An IP67 rating ensures against dust and water resistance.

The clip comes with 16 hours of standard data logging and up to 10 events can be logged, to guarantee an accurate record of a user’s day. User selectable options include:

  • Confidence beep
  • Latching alarm
  • Calibration due date
  • Bump due date
  • “˜SAFE’ display function
  • Multi-language, span concentration values
  • Combustible sensor measurement selection
  • Stealth mode
  • Other features include an extra loud audible alarm, flashing LED light bars and a built-in vibrating alarm. Field selectable user options allow the detector to be customised for virtually any monitoring application.

    The GasAlertMicroClip records time weighted average, short term exposure limits and maximum exposures to gas and displays readings on command. Upon activation, full function self-tests check the sensors, battery, circuitry and audible/visual/vibration alarms. Value-added confined space kits include a detector, standard accessories plus an infrared connectivity kit, hard sided foam-lined carrying case, sampling equipment and calibration gas cylinders with regulator. Each monitor is also available as an optional confined space kit.

    The detector offers a simple automatic calibration procedure, and is fully compatible with BW’s MicroDock II automatic test and calibration system. It also comes with a full two year warranty, including all sensors.

    BW Technologies designs, manufactures and markets global gas detection solutions for a wide variety of applications and industries. BW’s portable detectors range from zero maintenance single gas to feature rich multi-gas units, and come with a variety of features such as data logging, event logging, audible/visual/vibrating alarms, water resistance, backlighting, automatic self-tests, a concussion proof boot and continuous LCD.
