Honeywell has introduced the MultiRAE Benzene, a wireless portable six-gas monitor with a benzene-specific, snapshot measurement designed to protect worker safety in hazardous environments. The MultiRAE Benzene includes an innovative six-tube cartridge — called RAE SepTube Cartridge — that operates in conjunction with the unit’s photoionization (PID) sensor. The MultiRAE Benzene measures benzene in the 0.1 to 200 ppm range while the RAE SepTube Cartridge filters out other volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and gases, eliminating cross-interference, a long-time problem in benzene-specific detection. The benzene detection capability is one element of a unique, one-to-five-sensor module with interchangeable electrochemical, combustible and PID sensors to protect users from a broad range of toxic and combustible gases and VOCs. Multi-RAE Benzene provides real-time, wireless access to instrument readings and alarm conditions, including a man-down scenario. Other MultiRAE features of note include: wireless connectivity as a standalone or networkable solution; intelligent, field-replaceable sensors including oxygen, LEL combustibles, hydrogen sulphide, sulphur dioxide and others; up to six months’ datalogging; automatic bump test and calibration (with AutoRAE2) and stainless-steel housing with IP-65 water/dust ingress protection. The MultiRAE Benzene has been certified for intrinsic safety CSA for Class I, Division 1, Groups A, B, C, and D, T4 hazardous atmospheres as well as IECEX /ATEX Ex ia IIC T4 Ga.
