SAN JOSE, California -- RAE Systems has introduced the UltraRAE 3000, a photoionization detector (PID) for compound-specific gas monitoring.

The UltraRAE 3000 makes use of proprietary pre-filter tubes to measure specific gases such as benzene and butadiene. The detector is wirelessly enabled, making it compatible with the industry-standard AreaRAE network for remote data measurement and collection.

It also measures total VOCs in two wide ranges: 0 to 1000 ppm with a resolution of 0.05 ppm or 1,000 to 10,000 ppm with a resolution of 1 ppm. The monitor also has integrated correction factors for more than 200 compounds.

The UltraRAE 3000 can be used to measure either benzene or butadiene with the appropriate RAESep compound-specific filtering tube. It also employs RAE Systems' standard two-button user interface for easy learning and operation, and has intrinsic safety certificates for use in hazardous atmospheres for the Americas (UL/CSA) and Europe (ATEX).
