Honeywell introduces “Fit and Forget”, Four Gas, Portable Monitor

Honeywell yesterday released a new four gas portable monitor, the BW Clip4. According to the company, it can operate continuously for two years once turned on, before it needs to have its sensors or battery changed. The company said this means the user can reduce maintenance costs and increase safety compliance and unit is well suited to heavy manufacturing. 

According to the company, the BW Clip4 lessens maintenance costs associated with fleets of portable gas detectors by eliminating the need for repair work and the need to stock sensors and more units. Honeywell said BW Clip4 consumes 1,000-times less battery power than a pellistor sensor, the traditional technology used to detect flammable gases in a portable device.

According to Honeywell, other features of the unit include simultaneous monitoring of H2S, CO, O2 and combustibles (LEL); real-time display for instant gas readings even in non-alarm conditions, along with current gas concentration level and changes in atmospheric conditions. 

The company also said that the unit simplifies fleet management by generating record and compliance reports automatically (using Honeywell Intellidox instrument management system); and provides internal test function alerts users when the product should be replaced.
