ppbRAE 3000

The ppbRAE 3000 is a best-of-breed monitor trusted by many of the world’s leaders in CBRNE, HazMat Response, Civil Defense, Oil & Gas, and other hazardous environments. Using a 3rd gen photoionization detector (PID) and built-in correction factors for more than 200 compounds, the ppbRAE 3000 is the most advanced VOC monitor for parts-per-billion (ppb) detection available. It measures the presence of VOCs from 1ppb-10,000ppm with a three-second response time. Bluetooth data connectivity enables transmission up to 2 miles to a RAELink3 wireless router for superior awareness and faster incident response. And a rugged housing, large display, and large keys that can be operated with three layers of gloves all make for a unit that’s easy to use and maintain

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.


If teams are exposed to toxic substances, effective decontamination is essential to ensuring that those threats stay contained and personnel stay safe. RAE Systems devices can play a role throughout decontamination procedures. Our field-tested portable monitors provide the first line of defense as your teams investigate, and they can be decontaminated easily.

Single and multi-gas detectors with ppb PID sensors provide the data to know when teams leaving a site are free of toxins. And our continuous monitors can be linked together wirelessly and connected to ProRAE Guardian for remote 24/7 monitoring.

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.

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.

Indoor Air Quality

Health risks from toxic gases exist in nearly every kind of structure. Old buildings often have poor ventilation and aging heating systems that can produce and trap carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide. Drywall, paint, carpet and other products can off-gas in new structures and emit formaldehyde and other toxins. RAE Systems detectors provide a cost-effective way to monitor these gases in even trace amounts — parts-per-million and parts-per-billion — to ensure that you protect workers and the public.

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.

Worker Exposure

Ensuring a clean and healthy workplace, free from toxins, is a key way to keep workers healthy and productive. RAE Systems provides a variety of options to protect worker safety — from personal monitors that detect even trace amounts of any VOCs or TICs to fixed and semi-fixed multi-gas detectors that provide continuous coverage for your facility.

According to the Centers for Disease Control, healthy workers are more productive. They use less sick time, reducing time off the job. Protecting your workers from exposure to harmful compounds and gases is key to maintaining their health. Workforce protection is also important for your reputation and for compliance with regulations. When you equip workers and managers with wearable personal gas detection monitors, you can help ensure their safety and well-being. Real-time wireless data logging and alarms help you reduce potential exposure, increase effectiveness of incident response, and document long-term exposure risk.
