GasAlertMicro 5 IR uses a non-dispersive infrared sensor to monitor carbon dioxide levels while simultaneously monitoring and displaying up to four additional atmospheric hazards including O2, LEL and a range of toxic gases.

Compact and lightweight, the GasAlertMicro 5 IR comes housed in a highly concussion-proof enclosure. Audible, visual and vibrator alarms activate in the event of a Low, High, TWA or STEL alarm condition. An optional motorized pump is available for remote sampling. Beyond standard BW portable instrument features such as confidence beep, full function self test, automatic calibration and passcode protection, the GasAlertMicro5 IR offers an extended selection of user-settable field options including: stealth mode, backlight options, selectable ppm resolution, STEL/TWA measurement choice, combustible correction factors, user-settable calibration gas concentrations and multilanguage support.

  • Smaller and lighter than competitive instruments
  • Water-resistant design with integral concussion-proof enclosure
  • Continuous LCD shows simultaneous gas concentrations for five gases
  • Integral motorized pump option for remote sampling
  • Two power options: AA alkaline or rechargeable hot-swappable battery packs

  • Equipped with internal vibrating alarm for high noise areas
  • Multi-language support in English, French, German, Spanish and Portuguese
  • LCD backlight automatically activates on alarm, on demand and in low light conditions
  • Four alarm levels: instantaneous Low and High Alarm for all gases; TWA (time-weighted average) and STEL (short-term exposure limit) for CO2 and toxic gases
  • Simple automatic calibration procedure; compatible with BW MicroDock II automatic test and calibration station
  • Records TWA, STEL and maximum exposures to gas and displays readings on command
  • Complete range of user selectable options
