RainWise HM-1 HAZMAT Pro Mobile, Portable Weather Station w/ Nuclear Radiation Detector
The HM-1 HAZMAT weather station is a rapidly deployable system designed for first responders
to hazardous material incidents. The station works in conjunction with
CAMEO/ALOHA software that enables responders to monitor plume
dispersion. CAMEO was developed by Chemical Emergency Preparedness and
Prevention Office (CEPPO) and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric
Administration Office of Response and Restoration (NOAA). The weather
station provides important real-time information for monitoring and responding to incidents.
The software was developed for front-line chemical emergency planners
and responders. CAMEO helps in evaluating and predicting dispersion
patterns. The portable nature of the HM-1 and its long range radio allows responders to monitor the situation in real-time and from a safe distance.
to recent events and the creation of the Department of Homeland Defense
many HAZMAT teams now face new challenges and responsibilities. For
this reason the HM-1 includes a radiation detector,
this sensor gives first responders an early warning for the presence of
radiation. We hope that nobody ever needs the sensor but hopefully the
fact that it is present will give those on the front line a little peace
Rapid Deployment: The
HM-1 is packed in a single heavy duty transport case. The case contains
the tripod, sensor assembly, display and battery chargers. The sensor
assembly fits into the case as a single unit and does not require any assembly.
The display is housed in its own self contained case that fits into the
main transport case. The tripod has twist-locking connections and does
not require any tools. It takes less than 2 minutes to get the system setup and operational.
Electronic Compass: The sensor assembly contains an internal electronic compass that ensures that the reported wind direction is accurate regardless of the assembly's orientation.
The weather station sensor assembly is powered from four alkaline D
cells. For fixed installations extension cables are available for
permanently connecting power. The display also contains re-chargeable
lead-acid batteries. In addition, it can be powered from 12 Volts DC or
110 VAC (with the transformer provided). This allows the display to be
permanently installed in a vehicle or control room.
Radiation Detector: The sensor assembly includes a nuclear radiation detector for early warning and general monitoring of radiation levels. The display shows both the current level in REMs and total exposure in REM hours. Note: This sensor is designed to function as an early warning and does not replace hand held Geiger counters.
Spread Spectrum Radios:
Integrated serial interface that is compatible with CAMEO/ALOHA. This
industry standard software suite was developed by the EPA and NOAA
specifically for HAZMAT teams. It is free software and available at
- USA/CANADA - FCC approved 900 MHz spread-spectrum radios are used to ensure quality interference free reception between the station and display even at a range of up to 7 miles. Ranges in excess of a 1/4 mile require clear line of sight.
- INTERNATIONAL - 2.4Ghz radios are used to ensure quality interference free reception between the station and display even at a range of up to 3 miles. Ranges in excess of a 1/4 mile may require clear line of sight.
The HM-1 has all the standard wind speed, wind direct and temperature
sensors required by CAMEO/ALOHA. In addition, the display reports
barometric pressure, relative humidity, dew point, heat index and
LED Display: The display uses seven segment LED display for reporting parameters. These displays have the advantage over LCD displays in that they are bright and easily readable at a distance even in low light conditions. They also do not suffer from the limited viewing angle that is common with LCD displays.
Multiple Units / Multiple Displays:
Sensors may be coded so that one site can use multiple systems without
the chance of interference. Alternatively one HSA-1 sensor assembly can
be used with multiple RDI-1 displays.
Rugged Construction: The sensor assembly is constructed of durable polyvinyl chloride, fiberglass and aluminum. These materials are non-corrosive and non-sparking.
The wind sensor is made from durable Lexan/ABS and is strong enough to
be permanently attached to the sensor assembly. This makes setup and
take down quick and easy. The display is built into a durable plastic
carry case that simply closes when not in use and requires no other
When the Government Says "Everything is OK," You Be the Judge When It's Time to "Circle the Wagons" or "Head for the Hills."
HAZMAT weather stations have traditionally been an expensive investment
for first responders. With decreasing budgets and increasing
responsibilities we see the need for an affordable unit. This resulted
in the creation of the HM-1 with all the features but without the cost.5 Year Warranty: The HM-1 is solidly engineered and built, it is designed to give many years of service. We therefore are offering an unmatched 5 year no hassle warranty.
1Airline Passengers from Japan Trigger Radiation Detectors
New York Post, Fri Mar 18, 2011
Well this is alarming…
Passengers and cargo from flights that originated in Japan triggered radiation detectors when they passed through customs in Dallas and Chicago on Wednesday.
According to the New York Post, tests on a plane that landed at Dallas-Fort Worth showed traces of radiation on passengers’ luggage and inside the cabin’s filtration system. And NBC Chicago.com reported that five or six planes flying into O’Hare from Tokyo had tested positive for radiation in the cargo areas.
Homeland Security and Customs and Border Patrol agents were screening passengers, luggage and mail arriving on flights from Japan at airports across the U.S., but the screening was routine. Apparently the federal government already monitors ALL incoming traffic for radiation. But agents were told to keep an extra close eye on passengers and cargo from Japan.
U.S. security officials were also quick to point out that hazardous levels of radiation had not been detected. They say the detection of small amounts of radiation is not unusual and could be caused by a number of things, including medical equipment, ceramic tile, and even kitty litter.
Right, that must be it. I’m sure the radiation detectors were tripped because some guy was cleaning his cat’s crap box right before his flight, and not because his country is on the brink of a nuclear meltdown…
