From the Expo Floor: RAE Systems Demonstrates 'Bump' Step

This is one crowded venue. To a man and woman, the purported 15,000 SH&E professionals in attendance strike me as inordinately pleasant and glad to be here, but, let's face it, if you're not watching where you're going--say because you're suddenly lost in the Expo room and had to study your program for a minute to figure out where you were supposed to be heading in the first place (hypothetically)--you're going to get bumped. If your original destination happened to be RAE Systems' place, Booth 2056, then once you arrive you may well experience a "bump" of a different nature.

See, RAE's booth is a busy place, even in a great hall filled with busyness. The company, which has ventured here to Chicago from its headquarters in San Jose, Calif., provides rapidly deployable sensor networks that enable customers to identify safety and security threats in real time. Among the wares company reps have brought with them are a number of toxic gas monitors and radiation detectors. But, to get back to my non-hypothetical bump story, another product RAE is showcasing this year, which reps will pleasantly demonstrate, is the AutoRAE, an auto-calibration, bump test, and charging system for six portable instruments. Press the button once for a bump test, twice for calibration, and walk away. A few minutes later, easy-to-read LEDs inform you of the status of the gas monitor's sensors. If the monitor fails the bump test, the system automatically performs a calibration. An optional external printer allows AutoRAE to print bump test and calibration certificates for record keeping.

To see a demonstration of the AutoRAE or any of the other products in RAE's showcase, visit Booth 2056, or see them online at www.raesystems.com.
