RAE Systems introduces portable gas monitor

Health & Safety

RAE Systems has launched the first wireless, portable, four-gas pumped and diffusion gas monitor for oil and gas industry that is expected to enhance worker safety in industrial environments

RAE Systems’ new QRAE 3 is a versatile, rugged, one- to four-sensor gas monitor that provides continuous exposure monitoring of oxygen (O2), combustibles, and toxic gases, including hydrogen sulfide (H2S), carbon monoxide (CO), sulfur dioxide (SO2) and hydrogen cyanide (HCN).QRAE 3

The QRAE 3 has been certified for use in hazardous environments. When a situation arises, safety officers must make critical, split-second decisions about how and where to deploy resources. They need access to real-time threat data, which QRAE 3 can provide, to help make faster, more informed decisions to protect lives and property.

The QRAE 3’s wireless communication capability enables access to real-time, remote instrument readings and alarm status — including an innovative ‘Man-Down’ alarm from any location, for better visibility and faster response. Real-time hazard readings can also be communicated to the ProRAE Guardian Safety System and the EchoView Host Closed-Loop Wireless System for safety-enhancing wireless monitoring outside the hot zone, from a plant safety office or from a remote, enterprise location. This can help facilitate faster, data-driven decision making to alert responders, save lives and protect assets.

Thomas Negre, vice-president of products and marketing for RAE Systems, said, “RAE Systems has been the industry leader in advancing wireless gas detection technologies that help save lives and assets for more than a decade.

“With the addition of the QRAE 3, RAE Systems now offers the most extensive line of area, survey and portable wireless gas detectors making affordable, cutting edge toxic gas detection solutions available to more customers across a broader range of applications. Our wireless monitors include single-gas, four-gas, multi-gas with gamma (radiation detector), transportable multi-gas with gamma and semi-fixed with gamma for enhanced organizational safety.”

The QRAE 3 offers gas detection features and capabilities including advanced wireless functionality — first and only solution that is rapidly deployable in both closed-loop and global, 24/7 Internet-based systems; enhanced organisational safety and compliance. The organisations can leverage policy enforcement features (RAE Systems AutoRAE 2 bump and calibration stations) to ensure users follow calibration and bump test procedures and that their instruments are working properly. The QRAE 3’s AutoRAE 2 Cradle was made be available in Q1 2014.

With an advanced user interface, QRAE 3 features large graphical display, icon-driven user interface through intuitive, two-button operation.

It is available in multiple, user-configurable monitors. All configurations are available pumped or diffusion, and wireless or non-wireless and with various sensor configurations.

The QRAE 3 includes a three-year warranty on standard sensors and compatible with RAE Systems wireless safety systems — QRAE 3 real-time threat data can be monitored on mobile devices via the ProRAE Guardian Wireless Safety System through a secure Internet connection or via the EchoView Host Closed-Loop Wireless System.
