BW Honeywell GasAlert Extreme is a single gas oxygen monitor providing a constant digital readout of the present level of oxygen (O2) on a large LCD screen. With a range of 0-30 percent Vol.percent, a low alarm level of 19.5%, and a high alarm of 22.5 percent the GasAlert Extreme provides protection for workers and meets OSHA safety standards. The BW Extreme comes with a charged battery, fully calibrated, and ready to use out of the box.

The GasAlert Extreme housing is very robust with an IP 66/67 rating for dust and water, and is concussion-proof to protect against drops and rough treatment. Both sensors and batteries can be easily replaced, so the life of the unit is virtually unlimited.

Exceptional battery and sensor runtime combined with durable technology and mechanical components make the GasAlert Extreme O2 monitor one of the best single-gas monitors for industrial workplaces.

    We need to measure oxygen level of air in a tunnel. Is this item suits for our application? Does this item includes the o2 Sensor? Please advice how to use the IR Data Link with this equipment. Do we need to purchase any other accessories?

      The GasAlert Extreme GAXT-X-DL-2 comes with the oxygen sensor, complete and ready to use right out of the box. Also, this monitor will measure and display oxygen levels 0-30% by volume. The replaceable battery lasts about 1.5 years.<br><br>

      However, you did also ask about the data link option. We don’t feel this is a strong point of this unit. The software is somewhat out of date, and customers have not given us 100% positive feedback about using it. Something about using an older version of Excel, and the connection not being directly compatible with today’s computers.
      <br><br>
      In any event, we would suggest that you also consider the BW MicroClip XT gas detector. This monitor can be ordered with only the oxygen sensor. Part number is MC2-X000-Y-NA. This is an item we would have to order, so figure a week to 10 days til ship. We stock the 4 sensor version. The software and IR connection on the GA-USB1-IR works very well, and is up to date. As a further advantage, you may want to consider adding additional sensors. Carbon monoxide comes to mind on the chance you have equipment operating in the tunnel. <br><br>

      For either unit you choose, please also consider the calibration every 6 months to keep the units displaying accurate readings. Hopefully this helps. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.

    Is a calibration gas required for calibration of this O2 monitor and what is it and what other parts are needed to perform the calibration?...or is the unit just calibrated in fresh air? The manual is confusing as it says to calibrate in fresh air yet goes on and discusses connecting the calibration gas cylinder to the tubing but does not specify the calibration gas or Part Number.

      The GasAlert Extreme oxygen monitor can be calibrated in fresh air. The reason we also offer the option of calibrating with a cylinder of gas, is that some industrial locations may have (or be suspected of having) oxygen deficient (or rich) atmospheres. In that case, using a cylinder of so-called ‘zero’ gas means the user is assured of starting from ‘zero’ or 20.9% oxygen.
      <br><br>
      Part number for the ‘zero’ calibration cylinder from BW is CG-ZERO-34. This is a 34 liter steel cylinder. If this is something you are interested in, we should also make sure that you have the proper regulator. Steel cylinders have threads on the outside, or ‘male’ threads.

    Is the O2 cell replaceable or is this unit no good after it get the Cell error? Also do you know what the repeatability of this unit is? I would be using it to check the O2 level on a regular basis and need to compare it to the previous reading.

      The oxygen sensor on the BW GasAlert Extreme GAXT-X-DL-2 is replaceable. The part number is SR-X10-C1, and the cost is currently $135. Warranty on this oxygen detector is 2 years, including the sensor. The battery may also be replaced when it wears out, in approximately 1.5 years of use.
      <br><br>
      The O2 sensor is quite stable. This same sensor is used in the BW 4-gas monitors, and has proved to be quite reliable. For the most accurate readings, you may calibrate the unit. This can be done simply using clean air. If you feel that the air in your environment is not clean, you can also use a cylinder of so-called ‘zero’ air. In either case, this will allow very good repeatability.

    GasAlert Extreme O2 Single Gas 0-30 Pct. Monitor: what is the resolution of the instrument, e.g. +- 0.1 %, 0.5% ... ?

      The BW GasAlert Extreme monitor measures and displays Oxygen per cent by volume in 0.1% increments. The range is 0-30.0% volume (0.1% volume increments). The GAXT-X-DL-2 instrument may be turned on and off as needed. This saves battery life, and the battery is replaceable once exhausted. The unit uses a 3 V lithium Panasonic CR-2PE/BN battery.

    Do you offer a calibration service for this monitor? If so how much is this service, assuming no parts are needed? Wold like to send it out and have it certified every 6mo.

      We do offer calibration and repair services for all the brands of gas monitors we sell. Calibration service is currently $129.00 and is subject to change. The process is very simple, purchase a calibration service through our website or call our customer service team, then ship your monitor to us. Once received we'll calibrate the monitor and ship it back on whichever shipping method you requested.

    I only need this sensor on occasion. I could go 3 - 12 months between using it, and may use it from a few hours to a few days. My other option is a cheaper 2 year BWC2-X sensor that you can not turn off. I'm afraid I'll only get a couple of uses out of it over its 2 year life.

    I assume powering down the GAXT-X-DL-2 will save the battery life. What is the estimated shelf life of the battery? It appears as if the sensor element is also a wear item. Does powering it down save the sensor life, too? Based on the occasional use described above, can I reasonably expect 5 years out of the GAXT-X-DL-2 sensor?

      <p>Turning off the monitor will extend the life of the monitor, but battery life will definitely vary. The shelf life of the battery is about a year to two. Even if you don't turn on the monitor, the battery does trickle. For the sensor, the manufacturer provides a 2 year warranty, so to expect 5 years from inactivity would be a stretch.</p>
