RAE introduces controller

Nov. 24, 2009 - RAE Systems Inc. introduces the new RDK Ruggedized Host, a host controller for AreaRAE toxic gas and radiation sensor networks. The RDK Ruggedized Host consists of a rugged laptop computer with an embedded RAELink wireless modem and pre-configured ProRAE Remote software.

The controller provides real-time communication with up to 64 remote monitors. The embedded RAELink modem provides the network with a five kilometre range giving incident commanders the ability to manage the sensor system from a safe zone.

When connected to the internet the controller can push data over a secure web browser for real time use by remote specialists, and send alarm conditions to cell phones via text messages.

Housed in a MIL-STD 810F magnesium case that is IP-54 rated, the host can withstand harsh environments with temperatures ranging from -19 C to 55 C. It also features a sunlight-readable touchscreen and electromagnetic shielding. For more information visit
