BW GasAlertMicro5 PID

BW present to you the GasAlertMicro 5 PID portable gas detector. This instrument is able to simultaneously monitor up to five atmospheric hazards which include volatile organic compounds (VOCs), combustible gas (% LEL) and a wide selection of toxic gases. In the event of low, high, TWA or STEL alarm condition the GasAlertMicro 5 PID activates audible, visual and vibrating alarms and it is a compact and lightweight instrument. The GasAlert system is a good device for maintaining the amount of gas that is monitored in the air which makes it easy to keep within the regulations of health and safety.

Features

  • Smaller and over 50% lighter than competitive instruments
  • Water-resistant design with integral concussionproof enclosure
  • Continuous LCD shows simultaneous gas concentrations for five gases
  • 0 - 1000 ppm measurement of VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds)
  • Integral motorized pump option for remote sampling
  • Two power options: AA alkaline or rechargeable hot-swappable battery packs
  • Provides 95 dB alarm tone and two bright wideangled alarm bars
  • Equipped with internal vibrating alarm for high noise areas
  • Multi-language support in English, French, German, Spanish and Portuguese
  • LCD backlight automatically activates on alarm, on demand and in low light conditions
  • 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
  • Complete range of user selectable options
  • Full function self-test of: sensor, battery and circuit integrity; and audible/visual alarms


Volatile Organic Compounds present multiple potential threats within the workplace and environment. VOCs have always been characterized by their tendency to evaporate easily at room temperature. They include substances like benzene, hexane, solvents, butadiene, toluene, paint thinners as well as vapours which are associated with fuels such as diesel, kerosene, gasoline, heating oil and jet fuel. It has an integrated photoioization detector (PID) enabling sensitive broad spectrum monitoring of volatile organic contaminants.

It is highly configurable which suits a range of applications. The GasAlertMicro 5 PID either comes as a diffusion or a pumped instrument and either has an alkaline or NiMH rechargeable hot-swappable battery pack and has an optional data logging capability. Standard features of BW Technologies include automatic calibration, confidence beep, full function self-test and an extended selection of user-settable field options.
