Whether you’re establishing a perimeter at an incident site or need to deploy semi-fixed monitors around your facility, the AreaRAE Steel provides real-time wireless measurements for a range of potential threats. With a PID sensor for VOCs, an LEL sensor for combustible gases, an oxygen sensor, and two user-selectable sensors for toxic gases such as chlorine or hydrogen sulfide, you can deploy the monitor and replace sensors when circumstances change. The transportable AreaRAE Steel monitor is rugged and can run on battery, A/C power, and solar power with SolarRAE. This industry-leading wireless area monitor can also be combined with the ProRAE Guardian software, PlumeRAE, other third-party software solutions, and as part of the AreaRAE RDK for a more comprehensive view.

Whether you’re preventatively sweeping a location or responding to an event that’s taken place, knowing exactly the danger you face makes a difference. RAE Systems’ rugged, proven, and integrated multi-gas and radiation detectors meet all military standards and specifications. Easy to maintain in the field and with a global infrastructure for comprehensive support, our products operate on an open platform and can integrate with other third-party systems.

Clandestine Labs

Clandestine labs pose unique risks not only for the general public, but also for the personnel called to investigate and remediate them. Responders need to quickly identify threats that are present. RAE Systems provides the real-time monitors to determine risk by detecting multiple toxic and combustible gases, VOCs and TICs in parts per million (ppm) or parts per billion (ppb). This depth of coverage will help you keep your team members safe while they protect the communities surrounding these sites.

Emergency Response

In an emergency, responders need to know exactly the threats they face. RAE Systems provides integrated gas and radiation monitoring solutions that can be wirelessly networked together to provide a comprehensive view of potential dangers. Rugged, easy-to-maintain personal monitors, GPS tracking capabilities, and man-down alarms provide data for individual team members in emergency situations. Portable detectors enable you to establish a continuously monitored perimeter around the incident, which helps protect the public and your response teams. And seamless wireless connectivity gives you centralized visibility and fast mobile access to levels and toxicity data via PC, smartphone, or tablet for effective decision making and coordination, even during times of crisis.

Environmental Cleanups/ Remediation

RAE Systems products are effective, reliable, and accurate for all stages of environmental remediation. Portable survey PID detectors provide broad awareness of any harmful VOCs and toxic industrial chemicals (TICs) that may be present. Transportable detectors enable multi-gas monitoring throughout the remediation phase and can be moved and reused on projects as needed. And multi-gas indoor air quality (IAQ) monitors with parts per billion (ppb) capabilities enable organizations to provide higher quality workplace environments.

Our ProRAE Guardian real-time wireless safety system centralizes monitor, GPS, biometric, plume and other data for added safety. This makes it easy to share information in real time with clients, consultants, contractors, and regulators, as well as record data for compliance monitoring. And because RAE Systems is a trusted vendor to the EPA and other environmental agencies worldwide, you can feel confident your real-time monitoring will meet stringent government and environmental requirements.

Fence Line Monitoring

Continuous area monitoring for airborne toxic or noxious gases can protect people and property inside a perimeter, and minimize risk and annoyance to the surrounding communities. RAE Systems wireless area monitors are an ideal solution for fence line monitoring because they are cost effective to deploy, do not require wiring, have reduced upkeep, and provide around-the-clock protection. Wireless gas detectors offer remote, real-time monitoring and data collection, aggregation, and data-logging for a permanent, time- and location-stamped, verifiable record. They can also provide real-time Internet-based alerts to agencies and the general public.

Hazmat Response

HazMat teams are summoned to assess, neutralize, and dispose of the most dangerous chemical, biological, and radioactive substances in serious, life-threatening situations. Team members must know immediately exactly what chemical threats they face, what gear to wear, and when the area is safe. RAE Systems gas and radiation detection monitors deliver real-time gas, incident and man-down information to reduce responder risk and provide situational response data that can help evacuate people before a disaster occurs.

Teams can establish a perimeter with rugged, field-tested units at the edge of the toxic zone that wirelessly send real-time data to a remote command center. Advanced modeling software enables teams to predict where any plumes may end up based on current conditions. This insight is critical to help keep both team members and the general public safe.

Plant Shutdown & Turn-Around

Ensure optimal safety during plant/refinery turnarounds. With onsite contractors, extensive confined space entry activities, and expanded potential for incidents, having RAE Systems’ fixed and portable wireless gas detection solutions can help you maximize turnaround efficiency, reduce downtime, and get back to production quickly.

Our range of wireless, plant-wide gas detection monitors delivers anywhere, anytime detection and can be deployed in a matter of minutes. These systems will help protect your contractors and offer visibility and simplified compliance by centralizing data collection and documentation.

 Urban Search & Rescue

When large-scale disaster strikes, urban search & rescue teams can face unexpected exposure to toxic and combustible gases. These teams need to be ready for anything during search & rescue missions. RAE Systems solutions provide the data necessary to respond appropriately. Our multi-agent detectors enable team members to get real-time, detailed data on specific toxic gases, and our patented PID sensors provide broad-based assessment for other VOCs that might be present due to leaks or fire. Portable detection and dosimeters can also provide warning during accidents involving hospitals, research, power, and nuclear facilities.

Venue Protection

At large public activities, such as sporting events, races, concerts, and political rallies, protection against chemical and radioactive threats requires a multi-level wireless area, portable, and survey detection approach. Whether the threat is malicious or accidental, for example a broken propane tank pipe or trucks idling in a confined space, the danger is just as real. RAE Systems gas and radiation monitors provide real-time area monitoring with wireless connectivity, as well as portable detection for personnel. Data can be sent to a remote command center or other teams, remediation experts, and public safety leaders for access using a PC, smartphone, or tablet. Since response teams may be from different locations and under different commands, RAE Systems products can interconnect with third-party devices and networks to provide a comprehensive view of potential threats.
