Non-routine instrument setup and/or calibration requests will incur a one-time setup/calibration charge in addition to rental rate noted above.  When this applies, you’ll be informed of the amount of the additional charge at time of order or, if requested, prior to placement of order.

  • Two 2" diameter, NAI(TL) Scintillator Detectors
  • Will detect low, medium and high energy gamma and X-rays
  • Detectors are thermally insulated, lead-shielded and shock mounted
  • Weatherproof
  • Cesium 137 check source (if desired) must be ordered separately (see Instrument Rental, Sealed Sources, Cs-137)

INDICATED USE:
radioactive material detection system.

SYSTEM OPERATION:
The system consists of two shielded, 50.8 mm (2") diameter, NaI(TL) scintillation detectors shock mounted in separate, weatherproofed PVC housings.  Cables connect the detectors to an easy-to-read digital readout electronics package.  The detectors are constructed to withstand temperature extremes.  They also have low mass housings to detect low energy gamma isotopes as well as those with medium and high energies.

DETECTOR CONNECTORS:
2 MHV on back panel for the scintillation detectors.

AUDIO:
Switch selectable to provide an audible "click" for each detector pulse and an audible alarm above the alarm set point, an audible alarm only or disable audio output.

AUDIO VOLUME:
Adjustable when audio switch is in the "pulse" position; disabled (full volume) whenever an alarm condition occurs or when audio switch is in the "alarm" position.

ALARM:
Audible, non-latching rate alarm with front panel adjustment from 10% to 30% of full scale with readout on the LCD dislpay; red LED alarm indicator on front panel.

CONTROLS:
Response control, volume control, 4-position mode switch, 3-position audio switch, display reset switch, power ON/OFF switch, rate meter sensitivity switch (internally mounted).

POWER CORD CONNECTOR:
3-wire type with 1/4 amp fuse; UL approved.

CONSTRUCTION:
All-aluminum case with textured polyurethane paint finish and silkscreened nomenclature.

TEMPERATURE RANGE:
Operational from 20 to 50 °C (+4 to 122 °F)

SIZE:  
25.4 x 12.2 x 19.8 cm (10" x 2.8" x 7.8") including casetop handle, excluding all probes and cables.

WEIGHT:
2.5kg (~5.5 lbs) excluding all probes and cables.

RANGE:
0-200,000 cpm in two linear ranges.

ACCURACY:
Within 5% of reading above 20% of full scale.

RESPONSE TIME:
Signal - continuously adjustable from 2 to 20 seconds; LCD display - less than 2 seconds in Alarm Set, Bat & HV modes and 6 seconds in Rate mode.

POWER REQUIREMENTS:
105 - 125V ac, 50 - 60 Hz.

BATTERY:
Rechargeable gelled cell which provides 12 hours (minimum) of backup operation between charges.

RECHARGE:
Regulated, 16 hours when batteries have reached 10.0 V dc on the LCD display, recharging automatic whenever unit is connected to AC line.

BATTERY DEPENDENCE: Less than 10% charge in reading from fully charged to 10.0 Vdc.

LCD DISPLAY:
3 1/2 digit display (1999) with 1.8 cm (0.7") high digits.

HIGH VOLTAGE:
Factory set for 900 V dc; supplied to all detectors.

DETECTOR STATUS:
2 green LED's illuminate whenever detector activity is sensed; one LED is assigned to each detector.  LED turns off if corresponding detector does not produce any activity for a 15 second period; non-latching.

DISPLAY RESET:
Pushbutton switch which quickly zeros the LCD display; red LED alarm indicator on front panel.

RECORDER OUTPUT:
Rear panel BNC connector; provides 100 mV signal for a full scale (20 kcpm or 200 kcpm) LCD display reading.  The output will drive 100 kohn loads.
