Part Number: 72-8020-M


The MultiRAE is the most advanced portable chemical detector on the market. The MultiRAE delivers the broadest PID sensor range in its class and the versatility to support 25 intelligent interchangeable sensor options (such as PID, NDIR for combustibles and CO2, ammonia, chlorine, formaldehyde, and phosphine) to fully meet the monitoring needs in a variety of applications, including industrial hygiene, personal protection, leak detection, and HazMat response.

List of Benefits

  • Wireless access to real-time instrument readings and alarm status from any location
  • Unmistakable five-way local and remote wireless notification of alarm conditions, including Man Down Alarm
  • Intelligent sensors store calibration data, so they can be swapped in the field
  • Extensive on-board gas libraries (190 VOCs and 55 combustible gases)
  • Largest display in its class
  • Continuous datalogging (6 months for 5 sensors, 24x7)


Advanced VOC Detection Capability

The MultiRAE’s optional wireless capability improves safety by providing commanders and safety officers real-time access to instrument readings and alarm status from any location1 for better situational awareness and faster incident response.


  • Industrial hygiene, personal protection, and leak detection in industries such as:
    • Aviation (wing tank entry)
    • Chemical
    • Environmental
    • Oil and gas
    • Pharmaceutical
    • Shipping/marine
  • HazMat response
  • Clandestine drug labs
