The MiniRAE 3000 is the most cutting edge hand-held volatile organic compound (VOC) detector on the market today.

Its Photoionisation Detector (PID) boasts a range of 0 to 15,000 ppm which makes it the perfect choice for a variety of industrial applications, from hygiene maintenance to leak detection and HazMat protection.

The MiniRAE 3000's RF modem provides real-time data transmissions when a base controller is located up to 500 feet away from the detector. Data transmissions can be received at a distance of two miles with an optional RAELink3 portable modem.

A personal computer can be used as the base controller for the MiniRAE 3000 system. The accompanying ProRAE Remote software is able to monitor and transmit the data from up to 64 remotely-located devices including the MiniRAE 3000 and other instruments such as the AreaRAE and UltraRAE.
