Meet the MultiRAE Family: Concept Controls Unveils Latest Gas Detector Product Line
As innovations flood the marketplace, it's hard to tell which technological advances will be game-changers. Concept Controls, the exclusive Canadian distributor for RAE Systems, has recently added a new family of gas detectors to their product line: and it's already changing the face of the industry. The new MultiRAE family product line combines the best features of previous models with the latest technology, heralding a whole new generation of gas detectors.
Designed for personnel and worker protection in addition to industrial hygiene, the MultiRAE product family is appropriate for point detection in a wide variety of industries. Oil and gas, petrochemical, and environmental sectors as well as hazmat response, military, and homeland security applications all rely on this unique product line to provide fast, accurate results to ensure safety. With countless applications, the MultiRAE family can serve almost any industrial environment imaginable.
The new product family includes several models: MultiRAE Lite pumped and diffusion multi-gas personal protection instruments, MultiRAE advanced chemical detectors for up to 5 gases and VOCs, and Multi-RAE Pro, a specialized multi-threat monitor for radiation and chemical detection. Altogether, these models are equipped to respond to gamma radiation, over 300 VOCs, 55 combustible gases and vapors, and 25 specific toxic gases-all while detecting up to 6 threats at a time.
As the first gas detectors to feature built-in gamma radiation sensors, it comes as no surprise that MultiRAE models are already serving military and homeland security field applications. Compliant with 810F mil-spec standards, each model adheres to the highest requirements for quality and performance. Intelligent sensors enable easy storage of calibration information, which is then automatically recognized on installation, and pre-calibrated sensors can be swapped out in the field to minimize downtime. With a multitude of sensor options, the MultiRAE is customizable and versatile with countless configuration possibilities.
An integrated wireless modem provides safety professionals with anytime, anywhere access to real-time readings and deployed instruments' alarm status, resulting in faster and more effective incident response: In addition to notifying the user and workers in the vicinity, the 5-way notification alerts the control center. With a special man down alarm, the MultiRAE surpasses other models in its class and takes safety to a completely new level.
The sensors, pump, filter, plug and play battery are all field replaceable and large buttons make it easy to use the device, even with 3 layers of gloves. The large display is easy to read, with an intuitive user-interface. In addition, the rugged, dust-tight, waterproof, stainless steel plated case has a protective rubber boot for maximum protection.
With an incredible array of new features, combined with wireless communication, it's clear that the MultiRAE family product line will lead the next generation of gas detector instruments. "Concept Controls has had tremendous success with wireless gas detection in different forms, and we're really excited to introduce new, wireless, portable single-gas and multi-gas detectors," says Mike Stephens, Concept Controls' Corporate Vice President. "With groundbreaking built in modems and features, we're sure these instruments will satisfy customer needs for years to come."
