Quick update from Honeywell on the production issues:
As of today Global Product Marketing has released the hold on the GasAlertMicroClip XL and X3 product. We are now able to take orders and ship product again.
Orders will automatically have a 30 day lead time but this is so we can gauge better the demand as we did not allow a backlog for PO’s.
We received the following from RKI Instruments:
One of the many unique features that separates the GX-6000 from it’s competitive models is the PID sensor. With a PID sensor installed, the GX-6000 has a library of over 600 VOC compounds. The closest competitive unit has a library of only 190 VOC’s. No need to go through any complex procedures to add compounds to the GX-6000. With just a few button presses you can change to any one of the other 600 VOC’s and then be ready to monitor. No other configuration or calibrations are needed. Just choose and go.
With over 600 VOC’s to choose from, we’ve also added some tools to make it easier to find the VOC’s you’re looking for. Instead of scrolling through the entire list of 600, use the Recent menu which will store the previous 7 VOC’s used on the instrument. Or, use the User List menu, which stores 30 VOC’s of your choosing. Quick, convenient, and simple.
