Portable gas detector with IP68 rating

Published:  11 September, 2015

The Gas Alert Microclip X3 is a portable multi-gas detector with a newly-developed mechnical oxygen sensor and a five-year life expectancy.

The new 40xll oxygen sensor uses a mechanical design that replaces the traditional lead anode to enable it to operate consistently for five years, which BW Technologies says is more than twice as long as standard oxygen sensors. ‘With some portable multi-gas detectors, companies need to replace the battery and some sensors after a couple of years, which can increase cost and equipment downtime,’ explained Jacob Spector, global product marketing manager for portable multi-gas detectors.

According to BW Technologies the new unit’s ingress protection rating of 68 is a first for multi-gas units.

The Gas Alert Microclip X3’s features include four-gas, simultaneous monitoring; one-button operation; lightweight design; and a rechargeable lithium polymer battery that provides 18 hours of runtime and performance in the temperature range of -20°C to 50°C.
