The AreaRAE is a one-to-five sensor gas detector equipped with a wireless, RF (radio frequency) modem which allows the unit to communicate and transmit readings and other information on a real-time basis with a base controller located up to two miles away. The standard ProRAE Remote software used to control AreaRAE systems is capable of monitoring the input of up to 32 remotely-located monitors.

In stand alone operation, the AreaRAE is a rugged, weatherproof, one-to-five sensor portable monitor that can run over 24-hours on either rechargeable Lithium-ion or alkaline batteries. It is also the first “lunchbox” type multisensor instrument able to include a photoionization detector (PID) for parts-per-million measurement of volatile organic compounds (VOCs), as well as LEL, O2, and up to two electrochemical toxic sensors for measurement of specific toxic substances such as CO and H2S.

AreaRAE is also available with a global positioning satellite (GPS) option which includes the ability to track and display readings from up to 32 remotely located detectors on a GPS map.
