  • Page 15: Acautions

    • If the detector is damaged or parts are missing, contact BW Technologies by Honeywell immediately. • Use only sensor(s) that are specifically designed for the GasAlertMicro 5/PID/IR detectors. Refer to Replacement Parts and Accessories. • Calibrate the detector before first-time use and then on a regular schedule, depending on use and sensor exposure to poisons and contaminants.
  • Page 16 • Extended exposure of the GasAlertMicro 5/PID/IR detectors to certain concentrations of combustible gases and air may stress a detector element, which can seriously affect its performance. If an alarm occurs due to high concentration of combustible gases, recalibration should be performed, or if needed, the sensor replaced.
