RaeGuard 2 PID Fixed Detector for VOCs
Manufacturer Rae Systems Inc

Brand RaeGuard 2 PID

Model Fixed Gas Detector

The RaeGuard 2 PID is a 䄇⠀xed
photoionization detector (PID) that measures
a broad range of volatile organic compounds

The RaeGuard 2 PID by Rae Systems operates on 10 to 28 VDC and provides an analog (4-20mA) three-wire single output, and
RS-485 Modbus digital signal output. Calibration and maintenance have been greatly simpli䄇⠀ed as the digital PID module can
be easily removed in hazardous locations for calibrations and maintenance.

The RaeGuard 2 PID has a graphic display and LED light status indicator for fault and alarm conditions. In addition, Low, High
and Fault relays can be con䄇⠀gured to trigger external alarms or process controls. Over 200 correction factors are pre-
programmed and allow users to display readings of a speci䄇⠀c target gas. A magnetic key interface enables the detector to be
calibrated and operational parameters adjusted with the explosion-proof enclosure in place.

Class 1, Division 1 (Zone 1) continuous VOC monitoring solution for hazardous locations
Three wire 4-20 mA analog output and RS-0485 digital communication in ModBus protocol
Three dry contact relays (<30V, 2A) normally open (or normally closed), one for High and Low alarm, another for Fault alarm
Explosion proof stainless steel enclosure suitable for outdoor hazardous environment applications
Magnetic key interface eliminates the need to open the explosion proof housing when adjusting parameters
Continuous VOC monitoring in hazardous and non-hazardous area locations
Reduced maintenance costs due to easily removable sensor module. Sensor and lamp can be removed without tools and
serviced in hazardous locations­2­pid­fixed­detector­for­vocs.aspx 1/3
