RAE Systems Inc. Key Developments

RAE Systems Introduces ProRAE Guardian SDK, Industry's First XML-Based Gas Detection Integration Toolkit

RAE Systems Inc. announced the introduction of ProRAE Guardian(TM) SDK, the industry's first open XML-based software development kit that allows receiving real-time instrument data through ProRAE Guardian software and integrating it with external applications. Developers and third-party manufacturers can use the SDK (software development kit) to build custom solutions to meet specific application needs and to leverage their existing system investment to integrate real-time gas and radiation detection metadata from networked instruments. This real-time detection data will allow organizations to extend their system's safety monitoring and process control capabilities, whether at a single site or in multiple remote locations. The ProRAE Guardian SDK is designed for a broad array of industries with gas and radiation detection applications that need to apply real-time data to make critical decisions about risk and worker, asset and public safety. The XML output from the SDK can be easily and seamlessly integrated in external applications and networks such as SCADA (supervisory control and data acquisition) for automated control of systems that monitor and control industrial processes. The SDK provides organizations with the capability to receive real-time data from the ProRAE Guardian gas and radiation detection system and use it externally for predictive analytics, compliance, risk assessment, and other applications. The SDK also allows systems integrators and third-party developers to create new applications for oil and gas, industrial manufacturing, environmental, fire/HazMat and national security to leverage integrated decision-making. With the SDK, commanders and safety managers can now integrate comprehensive real-time threat data from any location at any time to make automated process control and safety decisions. The ProRAE Guardian SDK provides an API (Application Programming Interface) function library that software professionals can use to receive real-time instrument data via a high-level XML format to transform and feed into their process or decision support systems. The ProRAE Guardian SDK also supports Common Alerting Protocol (CAP). The C API functions provide options to receive instrument alarm information in CAP version 1.2.

RAE Systems Inc.'s ToxiRAE Pro Family Delivers Enhanced Organizational Safety, Compliance

RAE Systems Inc. announced its family of ToxiRAE Pro wireless single-gas monitors has been upgraded to provide added functionality and threat protection. Upgrades include ToxiRAE Pro CO(2), the industry's first wireless single-gas instrument monitoring for CO(2,) integrated 'man-down' alarm and unique compliance check feature in all ToxiRAE Pro instruments, and the new AutoRAE 2 Test and Calibration Cradle for all ToxiRAE Pros. The new ToxiRAE Pro products and enhancements build on the industry's first and broadest family of wireless personal single-gas monitors, and help advance organizational safety and compliance across a broad array of industries where exposure to toxic gases is a constant safety threat. These industries include: industrial refining, environmental clean-up, energy exploration, HazMat and emergency response. ToxiRAE Pro monitors now come equipped with an accelerometer, known as a G-sensor, which senses if a worker is immobile for a period of time. If a user becomes immobile, this new built-in man-down alarm feature simultaneously alerts others in the area, and sends a wireless alarm to a remote safety team. ToxiRAE Pro CO(2) is the industry's first wireless single-gas device designed specifically to monitor carbon dioxide (CO(2)). Equipped with an NDIR (nondispersive infrared) sensor, it protects people by informing them of hazardous environments in which carbon dioxide, an odorless, colorless gas, is present. The AutoRAE 2 Automatic bump test and Calibration System -- with one-button simplicity -- now has a cradle for the ToxiRAE Pro family. The upgraded system now supports all ToxiRAE Pro and MultiRAE family monitors, making it the most complete and powerful solution for keeping gas-detection equipment accurate, users safe and facilities in compliance with internal policies and government regulations. The ToxiRAE Pro CO(2) and ToxiRAE Pro cradle for AutoRAE2 are available now.
