Indoor and outdoor MeshReaders from RAE Systems are part of the MeshGuard gas detection system and work as dedicated routers to route signal from MeshGuard monitors back to the FMC 2000 multi-channel wireless controller. This increases the transmission distance and can help bypass obstacles. Alternatively MeshReaders can connect directly to a PC to facilitate communication with up to 32 MeshGuard monitors for viewing of real-time data in ProRAE.NET.

  • Allows communication with up to 128 remote monitors
  • Enables passive viewing of the system on other PCs running ProRAE.NET
  • An outdoor version with ruggedized housing is available
  • Easily scalable system by merging multiple MeshReaders through the Internet
