Multi Gas Clip

Multi Gas Clip

Battery life for months instead of hours!

Day in, day out, your workers have to charge their portable multi gas detectors so they can keep testing for the presence of hydrogen sulfide (H2S), carbon monoxide (CO), oxygen (O2) and combustible gases (LEL). Unfortunately, sometimes they may forget to do so. Gas Clip Technologies can help prevent this safety risk with our new Multi Gas Clip (MGC).

The new MGC can go a full 2 months without a charge, even without ever having to be turned off. Shut down the detector nightly and the battery can last up to 4 months.

How is this accomplished?

What’s the secret of the MGC’s extended battery life? It uses low-power photo-metric technology for the detection of the combustible gases (LEL). Instead of draining the battery with archaic pellistor technology, the MGC uses an IR source. This conserves power, so the battery lasts and lasts and lasts.

What about calibration?

The MGC also eliminates the need to frequently calibrate portable gas detectors. It can go 12 months without being calibrated. That saves time and increases efficiency.
