Whether for industrial hygiene, leak detection, or HazMat response, the MiniRAE 3000+ delivers one of the most advanced VOC monitoring capabilities on the market. With a photoionization detector (PID) that has an extended detection range from 0-15,000 ppm, a rapid three-second response time, built-in correction factors for more than 200 compounds, patented auto-cleaning sensor technology and Reflex PID Technology™, the MiniRAE 3000 + can measure one of the highest levels of ionizable chemicals available on the market.The powerful sample pump draws through up to 100 feet of tubing horizontally or vertically. A built-in flashlight to help navigate in darker environments and an IP 65/67 dust-tight and water-proof housing all add up to a device that performs reliably even in harsh conditions.MiniRAE 3000+ is solution oriented through multiple connected options. A dedicated mobile APP has been developed for Remediation engineers and Industrial Hygienists. Instrument is also available with real time connectivity which can relay readings and alarm status up to 2 miles to a RAELink 3 wireless transmitter.
