Five GasAlertMicroClip XL accessories you should consider

There are several accessories that are available for the GasAlertMicroClip XL that may be of use for your particular application. 

  1. GA-USB1-IR – This IR connectivity kit will allow you to connect your instrument to your computer and using the FleetManager II software download datalogs and change settings on the instrument.  This is particularly useful since there are some additional features of the instrument that can only be accessed using this accessory.  For example, there is a feature called a confidence beep which can be turned on.  This will make the monitor beep once every 30 seconds to alert the user that the monitor is functioning properly.  Another use is for turning sensors on and off and changing calibration span values.  This is a relatively low cost accessory that is highly recommended for getting the most out of your GasAlertMicroClip XL.  In addition if you have multiple instruments you only need one which can be used on all of them
  2. MC-AS01 – This is a manual aspirator pump kit, which is a fancy way of saying a squeeze bulb and tubing.  This is a low-tech way of doing remote sampling.  Simply squeeze the bulb repeatedly to draw the air sample back to the instrument.  If you only need to take remote air samples very infrequently then this is an adequate accessory to have on hand. 
  3. MC-TC-1 – Replacement test cap.  This is the same test cap that comes with the instrument.  It is used for calibration and bump checks. 
  4. GA-VPA-1 – Vehicle power adaptor.  Allows you to charge your MicroClip series from the cigarette lighter of you vehicle.  This low cost accessory will prove its value the first time you get out to a job site and realize your forgot to charge your monitor.  
  5. MC2-SS- Sensor Filter Screens – It’s always good to keep a few of these on hand.  If your sensor ports become dirty or clogged it can severely hamper the instruments ability to detect gas.  When this happens you should change the filter immediately.  Also, if your sensors won’t pass calibration this could possibly be the reason.  Oftentimes the filters become so dirty that the cal gas can’t reach the sensor.  Before assuming that your sensors are bad try changing this filter and see if the instrument will then pass calibration.
