I've searched on the forum and cannot find an up to date answer. Can anyone share a link from the forums, unless you can recommend a 4 gas monitor. Just getting into deeper territory and about time I invested in one. Thanks guys Stupid IP: 79.65.150.162

Yes. I use a BW Microclip. It is smallish and has separate sensors and the IR link enables you do do stuff with a computer, including stats as well as set alarm points and calibration intervals etc.

It is however, the most expensive piece of kit I have bought and used about 3 times and now it's out of calibration and needs a new sensor. Do you really need one?

Crowcon 4 Gas best by far IMHO

(A bit like the old stella ad - "Reassuringly Expensive!!" - plus I think we have a few shares floating around from when Halma bought the company and took it public.)

I've been using a BW Microclip for the last two years without any problems.

Probably helps that it was brand new.

In the past I had always cobbled together various old eBay ones that were constantly failing on the sensors due to their limited life. So it became a bit of a false economy.
