New Fixed Gas Detection Products For Enhanced Industrial Safety

Feb 13 2014

RAE Systems Inc., (USA) recently introduced a new line of advanced, fixed-systems gas detection products that elevate safety for workers and responders operating in hazardous industrial environments. These monitors include the RAEGuard 2 photoionization detector (PID) for continuous volatile organic compound (VOC) monitoring, and RAEAlert toxic and flammable fixed gas detectors and FMC system level controllers. RAEGuard 2 PID - Fixed Detector for VOC monitoring in hazardous and non-hazardous area locations.

The new RAEGuard 2 PID offers continuous VOC monitoring in hazardous and non-hazardous area locations, with fast response times and a high level of accuracy of readings. Its proprietary third-generation PID sensor technology allows a wide range of resolutions that can be as low as 10 ppb and as high as 1,000 ppm. Maintenance costs have been significantly reduced due to an easily removable / replaceable sensor module. The sensor and lamp can be removed without tools and serviced in any location, which greatly simplifies calibration and maintenance requirements.

The RAEGuard 2 PID’s explosion-proof stainless-steel enclosure makes it suitable for outdoor applications in hazardous Class I, Division 1 (ATEX Zone 1) environments.

The RAEAlert line of fixed gas detectors delivers an economical solution for continuous air monitoring in hazardous environments. This highly scalable solution offers up to nine different sensor options, optional LCD displays, optional relays, and optional infrared remote controllers. The RAEAlert line provides safety officers with maximum flexibility in system design by including sensor options for flammable, oxygen and various toxic gases.

The explosion-proof design uses cast-aluminum housing and is certified for use in Class I, Division 1 (ATEX Zone1) environments. All RAEAlert detectors communicate via 4-20mA analog or RS485 digital signal protocols, and non-intrusive calibration and maintenance are performed with an intrinsically safe infrared (IR) remote.

RAE Systems is also introducing four new fixed systems controllers that are compatible with the RAEGuard 2 PID and RAEAlert line of fixed detectors. The FMC-2, FMC-4, FMC-16, and FMC-64controllers are highly configurable and customizable, and provide simultaneous display and alarm functions for up to 64 sensor transmitters. These easy-to-configure, user-friendly controllers are ideal for centralizing display and alarm functions in critical multi-point monitoring applications.

All of the controllers offer configurations that are certified for use in Class I, Division 2 hazardous environments. The FMC-64 offers advanced network capabilities and IP-addressable remote log-in for simultaneous viewing and sharing of time-critical threat data across geographically dispersed teams.
