Toxic Gas Detector Features a Lead-free, RoHS-Compliant Oxygen Sensor
RAE Systems Inc. introduces the QRAE II Pump, which offers fast response times required for safe confined space entry. The QRAE II is a full-featured, compact, one- to four-sensor toxic gas detector for oxygen, combustibles, hydrogen sulfide, carbon monoxide or sulfur dioxide. Key features include an easy-to-change battery pack, a water-resistant case and a solid-polymer electrochemical (SPE), lead-free oxygen sensor. The QRAE II Pump has international certifications for use in hazardous environments including oil refineries, petrochemical plants, steel mills, wastewater treatment plants, landfill operations, coal mines, sewers, trenches and other confined space entry operations.
The QRAE II instrument can be powered by either rechargeable lithium-ion batteries or standard alkaline batteries. The large display on the QRAE II can be “flipped” to the orientation of the worker for either handheld or belt mounted operation. The QRAE II also includes a visual graph display in addition to the actual sensor readings.
The QRAE II features easy access to the filters, battery and sensors without exposing electronic components, making field changes both safe and quick. The product has both CSA (for use in the Americas) and ATEX (for use in Europe) certifications for safe use in potentially explosive environments and is IP-65 rated for water and dust resistance. The unit supports eight languages: Chinese, English, French, German, Italian, Korean, Portuguese and Spanish, and the operator interface is the proven two-button system pioneered by RAE Systems to work even with dual-layer gloves. The unit includes vibration, flashing LED and loud 95dB audible alarms to keep workers safe and aware in a mix of environments.
The QRAE II is available in pump or diffusion models or in a confined space entry kit that includes tubing, sample probe, tool kit, calibration gases and a hard case.
