ppbRAE 3000

The compact ppbRAE 3000 is a comprehensive VOC gas monitor and datalogger for hazardous environments. The ppbRAE 3000 is the most advanced handheld VOC monitor available for parts-per-billion detection. This third-generation patented PID device monitors VOCs using a photoionization detector with a 9.8 eV, 10.6 eV UV-discharge lamp.

List of Benefits

  • Real-time wireless data transmission through built-in Bluetooth & RAElink3 link
  • Integrated Correction Factors list of 220 compounds—more than any other PID
