Honeywell BW™ RigRat brings a new level of user-friendliness to transportable multi-gas area monitoring, so your people can work with confidence in hazardous areas. Simply place the monitor nearby, and it will alert workers to area gas threats so they can take action.

Grab and go. Like other Honeywell BW™ products, Honeywell BW™ RigRat is engineered for ease, with one-button operation. Simply turn it on and it's ready to deploy- no expertise required. Convenient handles and a carrying strap make it easy to take with you. 

Unlike some transportable area monitors, Honeywell BW™ RigRat is fully self-contained - with no need to re­purpose your personal gas detectors for an area monitoring application. Instead, continue using your personal detectors to monitor workers' breathing zone, 
while using Honeywell BW™ RigRat to monitor an area.
