abnormal test result may occur if non-compliance LEDs are flashing.
To suspend the flashing for up to 10 minutes, press and release the
pushbutton. When the flashing stops, insert the detector and perform the
test. If the bump test fails, the LEDs resume flashing.
Recall Events and Settings
When the detector is in normal operating mode, press the pushbutton
at any time to scroll through events and settings that are not empty or
disabled through Fleet Manager II via an IntelliDoX station. Events and
settings are displayed in this order:
1. Peak Reading, if available, and when a maximum gas exposure event
has occurred within the past 24 hours.
2. Time of Peak Reading, if Real-time Clock display is enabled.
3. Low Alarm Setpoint
4. High Alarm Setpoint
5. Real-time Clock, if enabled.
6. Firmware Version
7. Next Bump Due, if enabled.
8. Hibernation, for 2-year H2S and CO hibernation models only.
While an event or setting is displayed, press the pushbutton to scroll to the
next available event or setting. If you do not press the pushbutton, or if you
have reached the last available event or setting, the detector returns to
normal operation.
Zero the Sensor
Over time and through use, the sensor baseline at zero exposure may drift
from the manufacturer’s baseline. For optimal performance of O2 models,
BW recommends that you zero the O2 sensor once every 24 hours or
when the Automatic Zero Reminder is displayed. For all other models,
BW recommends that you zero the sensor periodically.
Optional Settings
Use Fleet Manager II via an IntelliDoX station to enable the following
optional settings for BW Clip detectors.
Display Gas Reading During Alarm
When Display gas reading during alarm is enabled, the
gas concentration is displayed when a gas alarm event is
detected. The gas concentration is displayed until the
alarm event ends.
Non-compliance After Gas Exposure
When Non-compliance after gas exposure is enabled, the LEDs flash in
an alternating pattern when the sensor is exposed to a gas concentration
that exceeds alarm setpoints. When the gas exposure is detected, the
top LEDs flash. After 30 seconds, the side LEDs flash. After 30 seconds,
the pattern repeats until more than 24 hours have passed since the last
alarm, or when a successful bump test is performed via an IntelliDoX or
MicroDock II station.
Real-time Clock Display
When Real-time Clock Display is enabled, you can
display the current time by pressing the pushbutton to
Recall Events and Settings, and then continuing to
press the pushbutton until the time is displayed.

Zero Procedure
1. Move to a normal atmosphere (20.9% v/v O2) that is
free of hazardous gas.
2. Press and hold the pushbutton until a 5 second
countdown is displayed, and then continue to hold
until the countdown is complete.
3. When the countdown is complete, the Zero procedure
begins and ZErO is displayed.
4. When Zero is successful, PASS is displayed, and then
the detector returns to normal operation.
5. If Zero is not successful, the non-compliance LED
flashes. FAIL and the non-compliance warning symbol
are displayed. Press the pushbutton to acknowledge
the result and return to normal operation. The noncompliance warning symbol is displayed and the noncompliance LED flashes. Perform the Zero procedure
again. If the procedure fails again, contact BW.
Bump Tests
When the detector is configured to display a bump test reminder, the bump
test symbol is displayed when a bump test is due. For best results, bump
test the detector via an IntelliDoX or MicroDock II station. Bump tests
performed via an IntelliDoX or MicroDock II station are logged as bump
tests. Manual bump tests are logged as unsafe gas concentrations.
Event Logs
The detector stores the last 35 events that occurred, including peak
readings, bump tests and auto zeros. Each record contains:
• detector serial number, sensor type and life-remaining;
• total number of events that have occurred;
• event type and duration;
• alarm level(s) in ppm or %;
• time elapsed since the alarm occurred in days/hours/minutes;
• duration of the alarm (minutes/seconds).
Use Fleet Manager II via an IntelliDoX or MicroDock II station to transfer
event logs from the detector to a computer. When logs are transferred via
an IntelliDoX station, the most recent 35 events are transferred. When logs
are transferred via a MicroDock II station, the most recent 10 events are
transferred.
Hibernation
Hibernation is a factory installed feature that is available for 24-month
H2S and CO detectors. When Hibernation is activated, the operating life
countdown is suspended. Use Hibernation to deactivate the detector for
7 days or longer, up to a maximum of 12 months. When Hibernation is
activated, all detector safety functions are disabled.
Activate Hibernation via BW Clip Hibernation Case
