    The MGC Simple Plus is a simple-to-use, portable multi-gas detector that runs continuously for three years without needing to be recharged or routinely calibrated after its initial charge and calibration during manufacturing.

Additionally, it is durable enough to withstand the harshest treatment and environments, which is why it has an IP 68 rating.
