Environmental MiniRAE 2000 PID


The rugged MiniRAE 2000 is the smallest pumped handheld volatile organic compound (VOC) monitor on the market. Its Photoionization Detector's (PID) extended range of 0-10,000 ppm makes it an ideal instrument for applications from environmental site surveying to HazMat/Homeland Security.
The MiniRAE features a 400 ml/min. piston pump and advanced datalogging capabilities including a real-time clock.

Measurement (Low Range): 0 to 99 ppm
Measurement (Mid Range): 100-1,999 ppm
Measurement (High Range): 2000-10,000 ppm
Detection Limit (Low Range): 0.1 ppm
Detection Limit (Mid Range): 1.0 ppm
Detection Limit (High Range): 1.0 ppm

Key Features:

  • Proven PID technology: The patented 3D sensor provides 3 second response up to 10,000 ppm and sets a new standard for resistance to moisture and dirt.
  • Self-Cleaning Lamp and Sensor: Our patented self-cleaning lamp and sensor minimize the need for maintenance and calibration.
  • The MiniRAE 2000 lamp and sensor come apart in seconds for easy maintenance without any tools!
  • Measure more chemicals than with any other PID: With over 100 Correction Factors built into the MiniRAE 2000’s memory and the largest printed list of Correction Factors in the world (300+), RAE Systems offers the ability to accurately measure more ionizable chemicals than any other PID! When a gas is selected from MiniRAE 2000’s library its alarm points are automatically loaded into the meter.
  • 3-year 10.6 eV Lamp Warranty. Lifetime Instrument Warranty.
  • Drop-in Battery: When work schedules require putting in more hours than the 10 hours supplied by the standard NiMH battery, the drop-in alkaline pack supplied with every MiniRAE 2000 lets you finish the job.
  • User friendly screens make it easy to use for simple applications and flexible enough for sophisticated options.
  • Rugged Rubber Boot: The standard rubber boot helps assure that the MiniRAE 2000 survives the bumps and knocks of tough field use.
  • Strong, built-in sample pump draws up to 100 feet (30m) horizontally or vertically.
  • Tough flexible inlet probe
  • Large keys are operable even with 3 layers of gloves
  • Easy-to-read display with backlight
