RAE Systems AreaRAE Steel Z2

Rapidly Deployable, Wireless Multi-gas Monitor

The AreaRAE Steel Z2 is a one- to five-gas wireless monitor that delivers ATEX Zone 2 certification in an extremely rugged stainless-steel enclosure designed for applications in harsh environments. The weather-resistant AreaRAE Steel Z2 is the benchmark against which portable wireless gas monitors are judged.

AreaRAE Steel Z2 combines a photoionization detector (PID) for parts-per-million measurement of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) with lower explosive limit (LEL) and oxygen sensor, plus up to two electrochemical toxic sensors for measuring specific substances such as hydrogen sulfide or chlorine. The AreaRAE Steel Z2 can also integrate a gamma radiation sensor in place of one of the electrochemical toxic sensors or the oxygen sensor.

An integrated wireless modem allows the AreaRAE Steel Z2 to transmit real-time sensor readings to a ProRAE Remote base station located up to 3 kilometers away.

The base station is a standard Windowsbased PC running ProRAE Remote software connected to a RAELink Host Modem. The base station can communicate with up to 12 AreaRAE Steel Z2s (or other AreaRAE-compatible monitors), providing a multi-threat detection network that can monitor a wide geographic area.

AreaRAE Steel Z2 monitors are powered by rechargeable Lithium-ion batteries that deliver up to 18 hours of continuous operation and can be powered by external 12-volt DC sources or from AC line power. They can also be powered by standard alkaline batteries with an optional alkaline battery adapter.

AreaRAE Steel Z2 options include the ability to track and display readings from remotely located detectors on a GPS map.

The AreaRAE Steel Z2 is ideal for HazMat and other emergency response monitoring programs. AreaRAE Steel Z2 detectors can be used to quickly establish an emergency perimeter by setting out multiple monitors at strategic locations, then backing off to a position of safety to monitor readings over the wireless link.

The AreaRAE Steel Z2 is available individually or as part of the Rapid Deployment Kit (RDK) system package.
