Rae Systems’ by Honeywell ppbRae 3000+ PID is a state of the art VOC gas detector for monitoring at the parts per billion (ppb) level. This device uses a new generation of photo ionization detector (PID) and features both temperature and humidity compensation for improved accuracy. It includes built in correction factors for over 220 compounds and is suitable for use in any hazardous environment. The ppbRae 3000+ comes in a rugged housing that allows it to be IP65 certified while running and IP67 while off. It also features a large screen for ease of use and large buttons that allow it to easily be handled with gloves on. The new gen PIDs allow for detection of VOCs from1 ppb to 10,000 ppm whit a less than three second response time. Data can be transmitted from up to two miles away with the RaeLink3 wireless router for increased monitoring and fast incident response.
