AreaRAE Plus Description

AreaRAE Plus is a wireless, transportable area monitor that can simultaneously detect toxic and combustible gases, volatile organic chemicals, and meteorological factors that affect the speed and direction of the gas. Whether you need to protect your community by monitoring a fence line, protect your employees during a maintenance turnaround, or protect your fire and hazmat team during emergency response, the AreaRAE Plus alerts you to threats with local audible and visual alarms. Plus, it works with Honeywell’s remote monitoring software to give you a real-time view of threat readings from a safe location.

AreaRAE Plus Features

  • Monitors up to seven threats, including VOCs, combustibles, Toxics and Oxygen
  • 7R+ photoionization detector (PID) for monitoring VOCs at parts per million
  • Optional meteorological sensor for tracking toxic plumes
  • Wireless technology sends real-time data to command station up to two miles (3km) away
  • Secondary radio module (Mesh) act as an communication Hub for other wireless devices
  • Ruggedized, portable, and weather-resistant design for harsh environments
  • Part of ConneXt Safety Solutions with ISM and Wi-Fi wireless configurations

Up to six 4R+ sensors for toxic and combustible gas.

AreaRAE Plus allows you to choose from a mix of up to 20 sensors based on your needs and switch them out whenever your needs change.

7R+ photoionization detector.

Monitor VOCs in parts per million, with built-in compensation for temperature and humidity

Optional meteorological station for tracking toxic plumes

Honeywell’s compact RAEMet sensor sits at the top of the AreaRAE Plus and measures wind speed, wind direction, temperature and humidity. This information is then modeled in Honeywell’s real time monitoring software which integrates the ALOHA hazard monitoring program.
