RAE SyStEmS AnnouncES FiRSt cERtiFiEd intRinSicAlly SAFE RAdiAtion dEtEctoR FoR FiRSt RESpondERS RAE Systems, Inc. (San Jose, CA), a leading global developer and manufacturer of rapidly-deployable, multisensor chemical and radiation detection monitors and networks for homeland security and industrial applications, introduces a personal radiation detector (PRD) that is certified as intrinsically safe. Intrinsically safe devices are specifically designed and certified to be safe to use in
more &raquo; ... s environments, a critical feature for first responders working in unknown environmental conditions. The detection instrument, the GammaRAE II, detects gamma radiation at extremely low levels, and is designed to alert first responders to the presence of radioactive material and aid in the capture of illicit "dirty bomb" materials. Designed as a front-line security device, this product provides life-critical, real-time detection of hidden radiation sources and delivers instantaneous feedback to law enforcement personnel, including municipal police departments, border check-point personnel, HAZMAT teams, firefighters, and cargo port screeners. Being certified intrinsically safe for Class 1, Division 1, Groups A, B, C, and D means that the GammaRAE II will not initiate an explosion in environments where flammable gases, vapors, or liquids containing acetylene, hydrogen, ethylene, propane, or derivatives of those chemicals are present. This is important for responding to incidents at chemical and industrial facilities, as well as other locations where these chemicals might be used or stored.
