A year ago today, Chicago was buried under a 22" snowfall, complete with winds and, amazingly enough, thunder and lightning. Today, we're expecting a high temperature of 46° and sun. It all just reminds me how much can change in a year.
And speaking of changes...
Effective January 1, 2012, RAECO Rents is now its own company.

Three Dosimeters in One Lightweight Device!
Customers who have rented the 3M (Quest) Edge noise dosimeters rave about them: No cables, just three ounces, 40-hour runtime, two virtual dosimeters for OSHA limits, and models for general service and harsh environments.
Recently, 3M added a third virtual dosimeter to the Edge eg5 intrinsically safe models. So now, you can set up OSHA Hearing Conservation (HC) and Permissible Exposure Limits (PELs), plus ACGIH setpoints.
To use the third virtual dosimeter, you’ll need 3M’s new Detection Management Software (DMS), which we include for free with every rental. If you don’t need the third dosimeter, stick with the QuestSuite Pro II software.
I have both software versions running on my computer, and they work completely independently of each other. But I found two Gotchas that are worth remembering:
When you order Edge eg5 dosimeters from RAECO Rents, we'll send both software packages, so you can choose the one you need. Make sure you read the instruction on downloading your data from an eg5.

One Edge eg5 noise dosimeter kit: $65/day, $160/week.
Configuration and Downloading Services
When you rent instrumentation, you can be sure it comes to you in working condition. But it can still take valuable time to input the specific settings you need to do your job. So, to make your day easier, if you have a special configuration you need loaded on an instrument, we can do it for you, so it's ready to use right out of the box.
And, if you'd prefer, we'll download your data after you use the device, and get your data back to you on a CD or by e-mail.
Charges for configuration service and download services are as follows:
Just ask Patricia or me about it when you call to schedule your rental.
