  • Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) detection 0 - 5000 ppm.
  • Built-in humidity compensation
  • Built-in sampling pump draws up to 100' (30 m) away.

This affordable hand-held monitor for VOCs provides superior reliability for leak detection and environmental cleanup and remediation. With a photoionization detector that measures from 0-5,000 ppm, a built-in flashlight, and a rugged housing designed for harsh environments, it’s perfect for a range of applications and approved for safe area use in North America. The pump draws samples from up to 100 feet away, and with a 3-second response time, the MiniRAE Lite can detect a leak before it can cause harm. This device supports more than 10 languages, and includes a large display and large keys that can be operated with up to three layers of gloves.

The rugged MiniRAE Lite is a basic pumped handheld volatile organic compound (VOC) monitor. Its Photoionization Detector’s (PID) range of 0 ppm to 5,000 ppm makes it an ideal instrument for applications such as environmental site surveying where non-hazardous area certifications are required .
