BW Clip Disposable Single Gas Detector

The BW Clip, which replaces the GasAlertClip Extreme, is a new maintenance-free, singlegas detector.

As your everyday companion for hazardous environments, the BW Clip has everything you love — plus new features to make your gas detection easier, safer and more reliable.

It's available for hydrogen sulphide, carbon monoxide, oxygen or sulphur dioxide.

It comes in two-year and three-year versions: Just turn it on and go — with no need for calibration, sensor replacement, battery replacement or battery charging.

If you use the two-year detector for hydrogen sulphide or carbon monoxide, you can hibernate it when you're not using it — and get up to 12 months of extended service life.

It has a new automated self-test to improve safety

It's the most comfortable, user-friendly portable detector in its class.

It is compatible with the MicroDock II, providing an instant transition from the GasAlertClip Extreme.

And for even more value, you can use the BW Clip with the new IntelliDoX instrument management system. Using this system, you can bump test each detector in fewer than 10 seconds and change the factory alarm setpoints to meet your requirements. And that's just the beginning. The BW Clip is engineered to the highest standards of quality and reliability, so you can feel confident that the BW Clip is protecting your workers — and your operations — 24/7.

The gas sensors available for the BW Clip are :

Carbon monoxide (CO), Hydrogen sulfide (H2S), Oxygen (O2), and Sulphur dioxide (SO2)
