Small and light enough to go anywhere,
yet sensitive enough to detect minuscule
amounts of gamma, beta or X-rays
Uses a Geiger-Mueller tube
detector for scanning lab work areas and
clothing for traces of radioactivity after
clean up. Operation is simple enough for use
in science education. Also excellent for
emergency responders, mining, Hazmat or any
area of potential radiation exposure. The
meter emits a chirping sound with each count
that increases with radiation intensity. A
loud 95db audible alarm can be set at any
point within the meter's range. Adjustable
auto power off prolongs battery life and can
also be disabled. The 9-Volt battery lasts
50 hours at normal background levels.
Indicates when the battery is low or the
reading over range. Each unit comes in a
soft carrying case with a battery and a
certificate of compliance indicating that is
has been tested in a Cs-137 field for two
points of linearity and overall operation.
Also available with a full N.I.S.T.
traceable certificate of calibration.
