GasAlertMicro 5 Gas Detector includes IR Sensor

Simultaneously monitor and display up to five atmospheric hazards with the BW Technologies GasAlertMicro 5 Gas Detector. Adaptable to a variety of applications, the GasAlertMicro 5 Series has an extensive selection of user settable field options and is available as either a standard toxic gas model and an IR model for carbon dioxide detection.

Use the passcode function to prevent unauthorized modifications of the instrument’s settings. The GasAlertMicro 5 combustible gas detector is fully compatible with BW’s MicroDock II automatic test and calibration system and Fleet Manager 2 desktop software. Please note: due to board and sensor configuration the GasAlertMicro 5 models are not interchangeable (ie, a PID sensor cannot be used in a IR configured unit).


  • Measure up to five atmospheric hazards concurrently, sensors available include: H2S, CO, O2, SO2, Cl2, ClO2, NH3, PH3, HCN, NO2, O3, LEL, and CO2
  • Fully customizable to suit any application
  • Rapidly switch from diffusion mode to the optional integrated pump in the field
  • Continuous LCD shows real time gas concentrations
  • Water resistant
  • Full function self test of sensor, battery status, circuit integrity and audible/visual alarms on start up
  • Simple automatic calibration procedure: compatible with BW MicroDock II automatic test and calibration station
  • Bright wide angled visual alarm bars
  • Built in concussion proof boot
  • Integral motorized pump option for remote sampling
  • Equipped with internal vibrating alarm for high noise areas
  • Two power options: AA alkaline or rechargeable hot swappable battery packs
  • Multi language support in English, French, German, Spanish and Portuguese
