It is very important to keep gas detection systems continuously powered while working in rugged and hazardous environments and performing remote exploration works. This needs to be done particularly in areas where vapors or flammable gases pose a safety or health threat.
In order to meet this challenge, RAE Systems has launched the SolarPak, an independent, safe, remote, round-the-clock solar-driven solution for wireless gas detection systems. SolarPak is an apt addition to RAE Systems' PowerPak as it ensures an unininterrupted power supply that allows its Mesh Guard Gas Detection Systems to regulate gas in remote exploration sites round-the-clock.
SolarPak from RAE Systems has received Class I, division I (ATEX Zone 0) certification for hazardous regions, and can be used with all Mesh Routers and MeshGuard wireless gas detectors of RAE Systems.
The SolarPak comprises a charge controller and an integrated solar panel to help charge the external battery of RAE PowerPack to ensure that the gas detector functions continuously. The independent, remote RAE PowerPack and SolarPak solution drastically minimizes maintenance and labor costs by doing away with cabling, extensive trenching or periodic changing of batteries.
The MeshGuard Wireless Gas Detection System is a quickly deployable, battery operated, hazardous area monitoring system that integrates sophisticated gas-detection technology with advanced wirelessly connected data systems. Its robust design offers consistent performance in difficult and hazardous industrial areas that include oil and gas production, oil refineries, oil and gas exploration, tank farms, plant maintenance turnarounds, and facility fenceline monitoring. By adding SolarPak it is possible to install the MeshGuard System in almost all hazardous locations.
