SAN JOSE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/06/13 -- RAE Systems, the leader in innovative toxic gas and radiation detection solutions, today announced that it recently achieved milestone adoption of its 200,000th wireless sensor. The company also registered its 10,000th software download for its ProRAE Guardian Real-Time Wireless Safety System, which enables the real-time delivery of safety and security threat detection.
This achievement epitomizes RAE Systems' global leadership position in development and delivery of safety-enhancing, mobile wireless gas detection monitoring systems. These wireless gas and radiation detection systems help provide increased safety across a broad array of industries including energy exploration and refining, industrial, national security, HazMat/emergency response, environmental and public venue protection.
RAE Systems' successful integration of wireless communication into its products also recently received global recognition from the Frost & Sullivan Analyst Firm. RAE Systems was awarded the prestigious Frost & Sullivan Global Leadership Award for gas detection. This annual award showcases companies in various market segments that capture the highest annual compound growth over the past five years, based on Frost & Sullivan's independent analysis of worldwide markets.

"Real-time remote access and use of VOC threat and gas detection information is a critical safety component for organizations to provide regulation compliance and worker and public safety," said Thomas Negre, RAE Systems Vice President of Products and Marketing. "Organizations are now able to prevent accidents from becoming incidents. Now, more than ever, facility managers and safety officers know that implementing a reliable, end-to-end toxic gas detection system is important to ensure the safety of workers and surrounding communities, protect assets and mitigate risks and comply with industry regulations."
Changing Standards and Safety Disasters Demand Wireless Gas Detection Solutions
Organizations such as the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) continue to constantly-update acceptable levels of toxic gas exposure to personnel. The cost of ignoring potential public environmental asset and worker safety is a high risk to major global organizations. As a result, the need to comply with regulations and legislation, protect assets, mitigate risk, and ensure worker safety now requires organizations deploy innovative, high-performance yet competitively priced gas detection solutions via an advanced system approach.
Additionally, when disaster strikes, site safety managers and incident commanders are tasked with making critical, split-second decisions. RAE Systems' ProRAE Guardian Real-time Wireless Safety System allows incident commanders to set up a rapidly deployable, secure, wireless threat detection system that encompasses a broad range of RAE Systems' and approved third-party personal, survey and area monitors to detect and track: toxic industrial chemicals (TICs/TIMs), flammable gases, chemical warfare agents (CWA), radiation, meteorological conditions, GPS-based location information, and the physiological condition of responders.
The ProRAE Guardian Real-time Wireless Safety System connects to a proven, scalable network of wireless sensors including the company's portable single-gas ToxiRAE Pro monitors, multi-threat MultiRAE detectors, GammaRAE II R radiation detectors, transportable AreaRAE multi-gas and radiation instruments, and approved third party instruments such as the BioHarness biometric monitor. RAE Systems' wireless monitors automatically transmit real-time sensor data and alarms to the ProRAE Guardian mobile command center. This allows emergency responders and plant managers to focus on their jobs and eliminates the need to report readings over radio. This simplifies the coordination of emergency response efforts and allows remote experts to be added to the operation in real time.
