The unit measures alpha, beta, gamma and x-radiation using a 2-inch “pancake” GM detector with high sensitivity to common beta and alpha sources. The easy-to-read digital display shows readings in your choice of µSv/hr, mR/hr, CPM, or CPS. The Total/Timer feature allows timed readings from one minute to 40 hours for precise measurement of low level contamination. An audible alert sounds when the radiation reaches a user-adjustable level.
- Quickly alerts the user to the presence of harmful levels of nuclear radiation
- Improves safety in the laboratory and in the field
- Automatically compensates for GM tube dead time
- Will not jam in high radiation fields
- CE Certified, RoHS Compliant & Meets WEEE standards
Sensor: Halogen-quenched Geiger-Mueller tube. Effective diameter 1.75″ (45 mm). Mica window density 1.5-2.0 mg/cm²
Display: 4-digit liquid crystal display with mode indicators
Accuracy: ± 10% typical; ±15% maximum
Alert: µSv/hr: 0 to 500; mR/hr: 0 to 50; CPM: 0 to 160,000; Beeper sounds the alert
Anti-Saturation: Readout holds at full scale in fields up to 100 times the maximum reading
Audio: Beeper chirps with each radiation event (can be muted)
Averaging Periods: Display updates every 3 seconds, showing the average for the past 30-second time period at normal levels. The averaging period decreases as the radiation level increases.
