• Portable Multi Gas Detector

Portable Multi Gas Detector

Day in, day out, your workers have to charge their portable multi gas detectors so they can keep testing for the presence of combustible gases, H2S, CO, and O2. Unfortunately, sometimes they may forget to do so.

Gas Clip Technologies can help prevent this safety risk with our new Multi Gas Clip (MGC). It has the longest battery life of any portable gas detector by a long shot. The new MGC can go a full 2 months without a charge, even without ever having to be turned off. Shut down the unit nightly and the battery can last up to 4 months. 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. 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. Each Multi Gas Clip, IR version, comes with the following features:



  • 2 month battery life (continuous run time)
  • 1 year calibration cycle
  • Will work in inert environments, no need for oxygen
  • Simple to use
  • Bump/Calibration reminders
  • Docking station compatible
  • Programmable user ID
