RAE Systems Upgrades Closed-Loop Wireless System to Enhance Safety in Emergency Response and Confined Space Entry
SAN JOSE, CA, Jan 15, 2013 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) --
RAE Systems, the leader in wireless gas and radiation detection
solutions, today announced that its Closed-Loop Wireless System has
been upgraded to support MultiRAE multi-threat monitors in addition
to ToxiRAE Pro single-gas instruments. This upgrade expands the range
of available detection tools and applications that RAE Systems'
Closed-Loop Wireless System customers can leverage to benefit from
safety-enhancing wireless monitoring. Applications include fireground
and hazmat response, confined space entry, multi-gas leak detection,
environmental remediation and refinery turnarounds.
The EchoView Host Mini-Controller provides safety officers and
commanders real-time remote access to the readings and alarm status
of workers' and responders' gas monitors. Safety officers who are
outside the immediate incident area can have the same real-time
situational awareness as those in the "hot zone." This can help
facilitate faster, data-driven decision making to reduce incident
response times and save lives. With the upgraded EchoView Host,
emergency responders and safety officers at industrial facilities can
combine any mix of ToxiRAE Pro or MultiRAE monitors into one EchoView
Host-based Class I, Division 1 (Zone 0 or 1) intrinsically safe
Closed-Loop Wireless System, totaling up to eight monitors.
"By adding our flagship MultiRAE family of multi-threat monitors to
the Closed-Loop Wireless System, RAE Systems makes affordable
wireless gas detection solutions available to more customers in a
broader range of applications," stated Thomas Negre, Vice President
of Products and Marketing for RAE Systems. "RAE Systems has been a
driving force in advancing wireless detection technologies that
elevate safety for more than a decade, and we remain committed to
helping our customers protect lives and assets."
The EchoView Host Mini-Controller for portable
wireless gas monitors represents the foundation of RAE Systems'
Closed-Loop Wireless Solutions that improve safety and enable faster
incident response. This rugged handheld controller can establish a
self-contained network with up to eight RAE Systems' ToxiRAE Pro or
MultiRAE monitors, and display their gas-concentration readings and
alarm status in real-time on an easy-to-read display.
RAE Systems' Mesh Routers can enhance the flexibility of the
Closed-Loop Wireless Solution and extend the range between the
EchoView Host and the gas monitors it supports from 330 feet (or 100
meters) up to 0.6 miles (or about 1 kilometer).
MultiRAE Wireless Portable Multi-Threat Monitors
multi-threat monitors combine best-in-class gas and radiation
detection capabilities with wireless connectivity and Man Down Alarm
to help elevate the safety of workers and responders, and reduce
The MultiRAE family of instruments, including the MultiRAE Pro
multi-threat chemical and radiation detectors, MultiRAE six-gas
monitors with advanced volatile organic compound (VOC) detection, and
MultiRAE Lite pumped and diffusion personal protection and confined
space entry instruments, can each be configured with more than 25
sensor options to exactly match the monitoring needs of a variety of
applications. All MultiRAE monitors have been certified as
intrinsically safe for Class I, Division 1 (CSA) and Zone 1 (ATEX,
IECEx) hazardous atmospheres. The MultiRAE and MultiRAE Pro are
compliant with the military performance standard
The RAE Systems Closed-Loop Wireless
System featuring the EchoView Host Mini-Controller upgraded to
support MultiRAE monitors, Mesh Router range extenders, and ToxiRAE
Pro and MultiRAE wireless monitors are available now worldwide. The
solutions operate on ISM license-free bands (868MHz and 9xxMHz
The upgraded EchoView Host (and Mesh Routers) will be offered under
new part numbers; the old part numbers are discontinued effective
immediately. Please contact your RAE Systems distributor for part
numbers and pricing.
