MiniRAE 3000

minirae_3000

Overview

The MiniRAE 3000 is the most advanced handheld volatile organic compound (VOC) on the market. Its Photoionization Detector’s (PID) extended range of 0 to 15,000 ppm makes it an ideal instrument for applications from industrial hygiene, to leak and hazmat detection.

The RF modem allows real-time data transmissions with a base controller located up to 500 feet (or two-miles with optional RAElink2 portable modem) away from the MiniRAE 3000 detector. A personal computer can be used as the base station for a Mini-RAE 3000 system. The standard ProRAE Remote software is capable of monitoring the input of up to 64 remotely-located monitors like MiniRAE 3000, or AreaRAE, etc.
