New ‘Clip’ and ‘Clip+’ single gas fixed-life monitors from Crowcon

Published:  03 July, 2012

Hibernate feature extends life and reduces lifetime costs.

The new Crowcon Clip and Clip+ single gas monitors are designed for compliance with regulations and company procedures in the oil and gas industry. Features include hibernation, long alarm time, changeable alarm levels, as well as user friendly gas test and calibration solutions.

The Clip and Clip+ monitors for hazardous gases such as hydrogen sulphide (H2S) and carbon monoxide (CO), ensuring workers are protected at all times, whether they are involved in exploration, production or refining.

With over 2900 alarm minutes, both the Clip and Clip+ offer a full year of shelf life followed by a two-year run time which includes four minutes of alarm time per day of operation. This ensures that even when a monitoring is regularly gas (bump) tested, or enters alarm whilst in use, the battery still has ample capability to last the two-year product life.

The Crowcon Clip+ also includes an innovative hibernate facility, allowing full monitor shutdown for times when not in use – very useful for shutdown and turnarounds when site population drastically increases.

Single button operation maintains the simplicity of the monitor. Once activated, the operator button can be used to run a self-test (demonstrating audible, visual and vibrate alerts as well as running internal electronic diagnostics) or show the alarm points (low and high in turn). This means users won’t get side-tracked by lengthy menus or functionality that is simply not required.

The event log is capable of storing up to 25 individual events, including self tests, alarm events, gas test and calibration detail. Events can be accessed either via the IR ink or C-Test gas (bump) test station and are stored in .csv format, ensuring data is provided in an easy to manipulate and understandable format. Fleet or safety managers also have the capability to change alarm points, ensuring compliance with changing regulations or company procedure.

Attached to a wall, the C-test gas (bump) test station can be used to calibrate the detectors and also acts as a USB data storage and IR/USB set-up device. Alarm levels and gas test intervals can be changed using the IR interface or C-Test, ensuring implemented fleets can keep up with changing industry, regional or company regulations.

The monitors have certification in the form of ATEX ll 1 G, IECEx Ex ia llC T4, CSA22.2 and UL913 to Class l Division l Groups A, B, C, D, ensuring they are suitable for the international market place.
