The BW Icon+ is a two-year fixed life detector that will run for two months on a single charge. It includes all the features you expect from Honeywell, including simple one-button operation, IntelliflashTM, data-logging and rugged durability – it also adds Bluetooth connectivity for use with Honeywell software as well as third party integration.


The BW Icon+ has 2 months of battery runtime on a 4.5-hour charge — and up to 4 months if you turn off the detector at the end of each shift. No daily charging, no unexpected downtime. The Icon+ has a low-power infrared LEL sensor that is immune to silicone poisoning, which means accurate monitoring of combustibles. The 1 Series sensors respond to dangerous gas levels in seconds, even in harsh temperatures

Easy to use

The BW Icon+ is small, lightweight and wearable with one-button operation.

Easy to Manage

The intelliFlash green light indicates the detector is in compliance; amber light indicates the need for maintenance and is compatible with IntelliDoX instrument management and Honeywell Safety Suite and also the TouchConnect, using Bluetooth for wireless configuration.

Honeywell BW Icon+ is named for its first-in-the-industry display of simple icons for gas levels and device status. That means no live gas readings for workers to interpret and no time-consuming training. Instead, when there’s a gas alarm, the bell icon on the display will illuminate, along with an indicator next to the sensor in alarm, so workers can quickly clear the area.
