Multi-gas Monitor with PID capability for VOC's

Build to order

  • Smaller and over 50% lighter than competitive instruments
  • Water-resistant design in an integral concussion-proof enclosure
  • Continuous LCD shows simultaneous gas concentrations for five gases0 - 1000 ppm measurement of VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds)
  • Integral motorized pump option for remote samplingTwo power options: AA alkaline or rechargeable hot-swappable battery pack
  • Provides 95 dB alarm tone and two bright wide-angled alarm bars
  • Equipped with internal vibrating alarm for high noise areas
  • Multi-language support in English, French, German, Spanish, and Portuguese
  • Three backlight options: standard- activates in low light (auto), in alarm (auto) and reactivates on-demand; alarm only- activates in alarm conditions and reactivates on-demand; stealth mode
  • Four alarm levels: instantaneous Low and High Alarm for all gases; TWA (time-weighted average) and STEL (short-term exposure limit) for VOCs and toxic gases
  • Simple automatic calibration procedure; compatible with BW MicroDock II automatic test and calibration station
  • Records TWA, STEL, and maximum exposures to gas and displays readings on command
  • User selectable field options include: PID correction factor, language selection, confidence beep, span level, set TWA/STEL calculation choice, set calibration due date, pass code protection, latching alarm, 'SAFE' display function, stealth mode, and selectable ppm resolution for some gases (e.g. SO2 0.1 ppm)
  • Full function self-test of: sensor, battery and circuit integrity; and audible/visual alarms

how is this unit calibrated? I have a Microclip XL combustible gas meter with Oxygen and LEL. We calibrate with your gas CG2-JX-2.2-34 Dual Gas CH4 (2.2%/50% LEL), O2, (18%) balance Nitrogen. Will this work.

Hello Mark! It depends on what sensors your PID monitor has. A lot of them are set up as 5-gas monitors, O2/LEL/CO/H2S/PID. This would need a 4-gas cylinder an Isobutylene gas cylinder. What senors do you have in your PID monitor?

Dear sir can we use any IR link for GAS Alert micro melti gas detectors [BW INSTRUMENT] THANKS RISHPAL SINGH
1 Answer
Dear Rishpal, Thank you for contacting JJS! The Gas Alert Micro 5 PID doesn't use IR for communication with the computer. Instead the Gas Alert Micro 5 series of gas monitors uses an internal SD card. This is the same type of card that is used in items such as digital cameras. To access this card you would remove the batter pack from the instrument. You will then see the card inserted into the instrument. Simply remove the card and plug into a computer with a SD card reader and you will be able to download the data from the card. If you are looking for an IR adapter for one of the other models of BW multi-gas monitors such as the Gas Alert Micro Clip XT or Gas Alert Max XT then the part number for that item would be GA-USB1-IR on this page http://www.jjstech.com/ga-usb1-ir.html. BW has specified that this is the only infrared adapter that should be used with these instruments.
