Honeywell BW RigRat is so easy to use that workers can operate it with confidence trusting it to alert them to gas threats in their proximity – indoors an out, in temperatures from -40 to 140°F.

*CAUTION – the LEL IR combustible gas sensor option used in the BW ICON cannot detect certain combustible gases including hydrogen and acetylene. The application should be reviewed to ensure the ICON can provide adequate detection.


  • Up to 8 weeks of runtime on a single charge. Longer runtime than any area monitor in it class.
  • Up to six slots for interchangeable gas sensors. There is a choice of electochemical, PID, infrared and catalytic bead sensors (measuring percent LEL and percent by volume)
  • Integrated noise sensor and meteorological data sensors
  • Enhanced configurations with programmable input and output
  • One button operation, grab and go, no expertise required
  • Simple setup with a smartphone. Easy mobile app for alarm set points, calibration records and more
  • Added protection that alert workers to nearby gas leaks, whereas personal detectors cover only the breathing zone.
  • Wireless safety perimeter, position several Honeywell BW RigRat monitors to forma a wireless safety perimeter
  • Use the Honeywell’s remote monitoring software to see gas reading, location and other data from any device with an internet connection – for fast, informed decision. Add an optional noise sensor or meteorological sensors
  • Use with Honeywell Touchpoint Plus controller for visibility on Honeywell BW RigRat monitors and worker’s personal detectors
  • Line power for extended runtime in the field
  • I/O ports providing additional input capabilities and local executive activation
  • Inert mode that prevents alarm in normal ambient air
  • Large, easy to read display
  • Rugged, weatherproof design, with optional protective cage


  • Zone declassification
  • Turnarounds
  • Confined space entry
  • Routine maintenance
  • Fenceline
