Quick Specs

  • Automated internal test for improved safety
  • Automatically logs the 35 most recent gas events for easy, accurate recordkeeping
  • Compatible with MicroDock II docking station and Fleet Manager II software
  • Both detectors are compatible with the IntelliDoX instrument management system for extremely quick bump tests, bump test tracking, adjustable set points and more.


Choose from two detectors:

- BW Clip Real Time – includes a real-time gas level display and the ability to calibrate the device.

 Product Overview

The BW Clip Series of maintenance-free detectors are the most user-friendly, reliable and cost-effective way to ensure safety, compliance and productivity.

The BW Clip Series operates for up to three years maintenance-free, and with the two-year version for H2S or CO, you can get even more life for the price: just slip it into a hibernation case when you’re not using it for a week or more, and extend its service life for that period of time — for up to a year.

With an automated internal test, rugged protection for harsh environments, a wide-angle alarm flash and other features, the BW Clip Series are the most reliable detectors of their kind — from the most trusted experts in gas detection.

And when used with the IntelliDoX instrument management system, the BW Clip Series are the most flexible and configurable maintenance-free detectors on the market. With IntelliDoX, you can:


  • Adjust alarm set points to meet changing requirements
  • Track bump tests and set a noncompliance indicator
  • Bump 50 detectors in less than three minutes
  • And more — so you can improve safety and compliance in gas detection

Basic Operational Features  
Event Logging The detector must record and transmit gas alarm events encountered and the time elapsed since the event occurred. Data transmission shall be wireless to a docking station. A minimum of the last 35 events must be stored.
Continuous Operation The detector must be continuously ON without the ability to turn OFF during its operational life. Hibernation mode shall be the only exception to continuous operation.
Hibernation Mode Two year H 2 S and CO detectors must support hibernation mode via a case accessory or docking module. When in hibernation m ode the detector must not provide gas detection or alarms and must be in a low power state. Hibernat ion must extend the service life for these detectors up to an additional 12 months, not to exceed 24 months of actual operating time.
Peak (Max) Exposures The detector must record and display, on demand, the peak exposure to gas (in ppm or %) encountered during the last 24 hour monitoring period and time elapsed (in hours and minutes) since that exposure occurred.
Alarm Events
The detector must record and download a hard copy record via a docking module for the last 35 alarm events encountered. Information shall include: gas monitored, alarm level (in ppm or %) encountered, alarm duration in minutes and seconds, time elapsed since each alarm event occurred, life remaining and cumulative alarm time.
Detector Activation The detector must have one-button activation. ON function must:
  • Test the battery
  • Display the current alarm setpoints
  • Provide a full function self-test of sensor integrity, circuitry integrity and alarm activation
  • On initial activation, precondition the battery and sensor, as appropriate
Safety Shutdown The detector must have an automatic sa fety shutdown mode to prevent unsafe usage. Detector must turn off either if self-t est fails, battery test fails, or if detector is not manually turned off within 8 hours of the life-ended alarm.
Detector Status
The detector must — upon activation and on demand thereafter — analyze and test its own operational status and provide alarm advice of any malfunction.
Full function Self-test The detector must automatically run a self-test at least every 24 hours. The self-test must test sensor, battery and circuitry integrity. Detector must advise self-test fail status.
