ppbRAE 3000 +

The ppbRAE 3000+ is a best-of-breed monitor trusted by many of the world’s leaders in CBRNE, HazMat Response, Civil Defense, Oil & Gas, and other hazardous environments.

Using a 3rd generation photoionization detector (PID) and built-in correction factors for more than 200 compounds, the ppbRAE 3000+ is one of the most advanced VOC monitors for parts-per-billion (ppb) detection. 

The ppbRAE 3000+

ppbRAE3000 +

The most advanced wireless handheld VOC monitor

The ppbRAE3000 + measures the presence of VOCs from 1ppb-10,000ppm with a three-second response time. Optional built-in Mesh Radio enables real-time monitoring of instrument readings wirelessly. Another option is Bluetooth, which can relay readings and alarm status up to 2 miles to a RAELink 3 wireless transmitter. And a rugged housing, large display, and large keys that can be operated with three layers of gloves all make for a unit that’s easy to use and maintain.

The ppbRAE + extends the range from 1 part-per-billion to now 2,000 parts-per-million. The rugged ppbRAE Plus (or ppbRAE 3000, equivalent) is the most sensitive handheld volatile organic compound (VOC) monitor in the world. Its Photoionization Detector (PID) provides true parts-per-billion (ppb) detection for applications from indoor air quality (IAQ) to HazMat/Homeland Security.

ppbRAE 3000 + is solution oriented through multiple connected options. A dedicated mobile APP has been developed for survey applications. Instrument is also available with real time connectivity which can relay readings and alarm status up to 2 miles to a RAELink 3 wireless transmitter.
