BW Honeywell GasAlert MicroClip XL 4-Gas Monitor MCXL-XWHM-Y-NA (Video)
Hi, this is Rick Pedley and welcome to PK Safety. Today we're going to talk about the BW MCXL 4 Gas Confined Space Gas Detector. This is our best selling 4 gas detector by far. Very easy to use, very robust and trouble free. It's an update from the old MC2 and it gives you great battery life, up to 18 hours. This thing just has the one button operation. One button, you turn the thing on, just hold it. It's going to test itself. They have the vibration, the noise, and the sound.
It going to know that this has gone off and then it's going to go through a self test. This takes about 15 seconds, where it's checking the sensors, checking the battery, making sure the thing's all good. Along with the monitor in the box, you're going to get the manual quick start guide CD-ROM with expanded information. On the backside we're going to see the calibration certificate, that's going to have all the information about the when's and the how's and so forth. Every 180 days you do that.
The AC adapter, this plugs into any wall outlet and attaches to the instrument. Then the calibration adapter, this fits over the sensors and allows you to apply the gas to the sensors when you're calibrating or bumping instrument. We always recommend that you bump test the instrument so to make sure it's working perfectly. Then every 180 days or 6 months we're going to calibrate the unit. You can do this yourself or we offer that service at PK safety. Easy product to use, easy product to own. If you have any questions about this or any other safety product, please give us a call or visit us online at PKSafety.com. Thank you.

- Product worked very well, Review by Jay R.
Product worked very well, i found it difficult to calibrate, but it does work for the confined spaces that we utilize. It would have been nice to have a better description of what the operations available on the O2 sensor were. Other than that it is a very good product for the money, we will see how easy it is to calibrate in the future. Thank you.

- Simple and Reliable Review by Erik A.
We purchased these to help protect our field guys working in and around oil well sites. The units are simple to use, reliable and function good in the outdoor conditions we use them in. The only minor downside is the gas filters can be saturated quite easily. The items were shipped promptly and had the best prices.

- Very Cost Effective Purchase Review by Wilbur S.
Ordered the Honeywell 4-Gas Monitor with the auto charging adapter for personal use on a major utilities' pipeline and tunnel projects in Colorado. Unit arrived quickly by UPS and has been found to be useful as a lightweight personal backup for confined spaces. An added advantage is the calibration due date feature and the certified factory calibration. It was a very cost effective purchase and will be recommended to project associates. Wilbur S. SME, AEG

- Absolutely Essential For My Inspectors Review by Nick B.
These BW Honeywell Gas Alert Micro Clip XT 4-Gas Monitors (MC2-XWHM-Y-NA) are absolutely essential to maintain the safety of my natural gas pipeline inspectors. The calibration is good for 6 months and PK Safety (through GasSniffer) makes great haste in re-calibration.

- Great Product, Easy to Use Review by Tim Cummens, President CTW Corporation
The unit we bought has suited our needs nicely. We do not use this detector as often as some contractors so the reasonable price for the Micro Clip XT allows us to own without the hassles that renting a unit entailed. Most of what we inspect, water pressure tanks and ground level water reservoirs, never involve any of the gasses we detect for so it is unusual to ever have it go off. We have already used it three times and each of the crews has mentioned how easy it is to set up and use. I am still not certain on the frequency of the required calibration. For us it would be beneficial for that to be based on actual time used rather than elapsed calendar time, I guess we will be dealing with that soon enough.
The product was well packaged and delivery was earlier than promised, both pluses. As the time approaches for recalibration, I am sure we will be in touch with your technical staff. In summary, we are very pleased up to this point and expect your product to serve us well down the road.

- Excellent Review by Sid
"The instrument is compact, robust, and user friendly. Installing the additional filter from the confined entry kit provides added protection against particulate contamination.
Per instructions, recharging seems to require shutting the instrument down for two to three hours; hence only four stars. "

- Extreme Value in a Gas Detector Review by Rick Pedley, Product Expert
Simple design has what you need in a 4-gas monitor, without going all technical on you. The one-button control is easy, and I could find my way through with hardly a glance at the directions. Twice a year calibration makes owning one easy on the wallet. Most guys we give these to just need a couple of quick pointers, and off they go.

- Affordable gas detection Review by Curt in Northern Michigan
We purchased the BW Microclip for use at our Wastewater Facility in northern Michigan. We were looking for something small and affordable to replace our 8 year old detector, which was large and expensive. This unit is a good fit for us, we can put it in a shirt pocket or use the included alligator clip, calibration is fast and only needed 2x per year. Operation is simple, one button. GasSnifer shipping was very fast and their price was great.

The easiest 4 gas monitor I have tried and can't beat the price. Only need to calibrate it twice a year per instructions.

- Standard Issue for Our Guys Review by Tom Geary
I work for a large oil and gas company as a safety and risk management director. We give these to our guys any time they are going into a hazardous environment or confined space. In my opinion, this is the easiest gas detector to train on. It has only one button! It is also one of the smaller models so the guys don't complain about carrying them like the ones that look and feel like bricks. They have been very reliable in the field. No complaints.

0voteA: Yes, this monitor can detect Oxygen, Carbon Monoxide, Hydrogen Sulfide, and LEL (lower explosive limits) which include Methane.
0voteA: The monitors are tested by UL and CSA. The logos are printed on the monitor labels and on all the included literature.
0voteA: The oxygen sensor in this unit is capable of measuring from 0-30% vol O2. The time is takes to register a change in O2% varies slightly based on the severity of the change but typically it will be 90% accurate in 15 seconds.
0voteA: Pricing varies by sensor. Please call us for the latest pricing. Given the unit comes with a 2 year warranty you shouldn't incur any cost for replacement sensors in the first 2 years.
0voteA: Yes, this monitor displays the gas concentrations through it's measuring range.
0voteA: In order to perform a bump test you'll need to apply each sensors target gas. For this monitor that's O2 / LEL / H2S / CO. The quantities need to be above the units high alarm settings. We have the gas available to purchase online. Please look for part number BW 4-GAS CALIBRATION MIX CG-Q34-4. You will also need a regulator BW CALIBRATION GAS REGULATOR REG-0.5 LPM to connect the gas to the monitor.
0voteA: All the items in the image are included. The case is available separately at an additional cost. Please search item MC-CK-DL
0voteA: They use a different oxygen sensor that isn't interchangeable. All the other sensors are the same.
0voteA: Yes, the monitor is capable of detecting Butane and Propane.
0voteA: The BW GasAlert Micro Clip XL is only available with up to 4 of the standard confined space sensors; Oxygen, Combustible (LEL), Carbon Monoxide and Hydrogen Sulfide.
To detect Hydrogen Cyanide (HCN), we have 2 choices in the BW line…
The GasAlert Extreme is a single gas HCN detector with a digital readout. Part number is GAXT-Z-DL
In a multiple gas detector, we have the Micro 5. As the name implies, this instrument can have up to 5 different sensors, including HCN. We offer a few basic configurations on the site, but can get much more custom as you prefer.
0voteA: The alarm set points on the BW GasAlert Micro Clip XL are user adjustable. As shipped from the factory, the current default settings are;
Oxygen (O2) low alarm: 19.5%, high alarm: 23.5%
Combustible (LEL Methane) low alarm: 5%, high alarm: 15%
Carbon Monoxide (CO) low alarm: 50ppm, high alarm: 200ppm
Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S) low alarm: 10ppm, high alarm: 15ppm
0voteA: The sensors on the BW GasAlert Micro Clip XL are all replaceable. Each sensor has a 2 year warranty. The Oxygen (O2) sensor will usually be the first to go, sometime after the 2 years, but certainly before 3 years. The other sensors, Carbon Monoxide (CO), Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S) and Combustible (LEL) vary widely in their actual service life, depending greatly on what they have been exposed to. It is not unusual to see any of them going 3-5 years.
0voteA: I have checked with BW, and they do not offer a portable gas detector capable of displaying the LEL of Tetrahydrofuran. Another approach is to use a Photo Ionization Detector (PID). Depending on your application, this may be a good alternative. If you like, please give us a call. Our gas monitor experts would be happy to talk it over and find the best fit for you.
0voteA: The BW GasAlert Micro Clip XL comes standard with data logging built in. It will start recording events just as soon as it is turned on. However, access to the logs does require the BW IR Connectivity Kit GA-USB1-IR. This kit includes connections and software for your Windows PC. Basic information, such as STEL, TWA, etc are available on the instrument screen through the menu system. More detailed information is only available with the kit.
0voteA: No, the Micro Clip XT measures H2S, CO, lower explosive limits of combustibles, and oxygen. For a CO2 monitor, consider the Draeger Single Gas Pac 7000 for CO2.
0voteA: This monitor reads H2S as well as O2, CO, and LEL. If you're looking for a monitor that specifically detects hydrogen, consider the ToxiRAE Pro.
0voteA: The guidance from BW Honeywell is to calibrate the MicroClip XL 4 gas monitor every 6 months. In fact, the unit has a 180 day countdown visible on the screen as a reminder. Initially this is set on the date of manufacture. With shipping and time in our warehouse, it may be that as much as 30 days has elapsed from that first calibration. Each time you calibrate the instrument, a new 180 day clock is started.
For calibrating the MicroClip XL you will need a cylinder of cal gas and a regulator. With these items in hand, calibrating the instrument is easy and quick. The cal gas has all 4 gases with specific percentages to set the proper values, and the regulator meters out the gas at a specific rate of flow. These are available on our site. The calibration gas cylinder may also be used for bump testing. For most of our customers, it is standard practice to check the correct operation of the detector before each use, particularly if the application involves confined space entry.
0voteA: This monitor will not detect chlorine. Instead you would need a special purpose monitor such as the BW Honeywell GasAlert Extreme Chlorine Dioxide 0-1 ppm.
