Portable four-gas monitor with two-year runtime

Honeywell has announced the BW Clip4, a new four-gas, portable monitor that once turned on can operate continuously for two years without the need to change sensors or charge batteries, helping users boost safety compliance and reduce maintenance costs.

Suitable for oil and gas, wastewater, heavy manufacturing, confined space and other applications, the monitor significantly reduces maintenance costs associated with fleets of portable gas detectors by eliminating repair work and the need to stock additional sensors and spare units. Because it is always on, the monitor helps drive safety compliance by ensuring that workers wearing the device are protected.

Using non-dispersive infrared (NDIR) technology, previously available only in fixed-gas detectors from Honeywell Analytics, the company claims that the monitor consumes 1000 times less battery power than a catalytic bead (pellistor) sensor, the traditional technology used to detect flammable gases in a portable device. Other features 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
  • Simplifies fleet management by generating record and compliance reports automatically (using Honeywell Intellidox instrument management system)
  • Internal test function alerts users when product should be replaced
