by International Medcom
- Radiation detector used for surveying levels of potentially harmful ionizing particles and rays in the environment such as in naturally occurring radioactive material (NORM) contamination, contamination detection of packages, and equipment, and in first responder, personal safety, educational, and ambient monitoring applications
- Device is not energy compensated, and allows for detection of ionizing radiation types including alpha and beta particles, and gamma rays and x-rays
- Audible alert feature sounds when radiation reaches a user-defined level
- LCD digital light displays current radiation level in milliroentgens (mR) per hour (mR/hr), or counts per minute (CPM); or when SI (metric) units are selected, in microSieverts (μSv) per hour (μSv/hr), or counts per second (CPS)
- Provides total count for a timed period (from one minute to 40 hours) to determine average CPM over a period of time for higher accuracy
The Intercontinental Medcom Radalert 100 is a hand-held radiation detector that detects likely damaging ionizing alpha and beta particles, and gamma and x-ray radiation, and has an notify characteristic, Geiger-Mueller (G-M) tube with mica end window, amassed total timer purpose, and Liquid crystal display digital display of milliroentgens (mR) for each hour (mR/hr), counts for each minute (CPM), microSieverts (μSv) for each hour (μSv/hr), or counts for each second (CPS). This radiation detector has the potential to detect levels of the 4 main kinds of ionizing alpha and beta particles, and gamma rays and x-rays in excess of computerized operational ranges. It is optimized to detect small changes (low levels) in radiation levels and to have high sensitivity to several widespread radionuclides.
The Radalert 100 has an audible notify characteristic that appears when radiation reaches a user-outlined degree. It attributes a four-digit Liquid crystal display digital display that updates each three seconds. It shows current radiation degree in decision of mR/hr, or CPM or when SI (metric) models are selected, in μSv/hr, or CPS. The detector counts ionizing radiation changes at three-second intervals. At low track record levels, which are standard in a geographic area, the count is the moving common for the most latest thirty-second time period. A moving common aids easy out short-time period information fluctuations. The time period for the moving common decreases, as radiation levels boost. A red LED mild flashes with each ionization event. The instrument has an amassed total count and a timer purpose that offers total event count for a timed period (from one minute to 40 several hours) to decide common CPM for greater accuracy. The radiation detector has an audio indicator with an internally mounted beeper that can be muted. Somme timer, audio on/off and models of measurement are selected and displayed utilizing the entrance-panel mode indicators. The utility menu enables modification of default configurations for a number of running parameters.
This radiation detector has a halogen-quenched, Geiger-Mueller (G-M) tube with a slim disk of mica on its end window for sensing ionizing radiation. The device is utilized for surveying levels of likely damaging ionizing particles and rays in the environment this kind of as in normally taking place radioactive material (NORM) contamination, contamination detection of packages, and devices, and in 1st responder, individual basic safety, academic, and ambient monitoring purposes. It will come in a protecting gentle carrying case. The Radalert 100 will come with a Certificate of Conformance and has a one-year, restricted warranty for resources and craftsmanship, and a thirty-day warranty on its G-M tube.

Radiation detectors, occasionally referred to as Geiger counters or G-M counters, can detect a broad assortment of ionizing alpha and beta particles, and gamma and x-rays that could be emitting damaging levels of radiation. Several detectors perception ionizing radiation with an enclosed Geiger-Mueller (G-M) tube to count radiation particles or rays. Alpha and beta particles are measured in counts for each minute (CPM) or counts for each second (CPS). Gamma rays and x-rays are measured in milliRoentgens (mR) for each hour, microSieverts (μSv) for each hour, or milliSieverts (mSv) for each hour. Alpha particles are positively billed and heavier than beta particles, and have a restricted assortment of around three to five centimeters by air. Alpha particles can be shielded by objects this kind of as paper and unopened skin. Higher-power beta particles are electrons, heavier than gamma rays, and can get either a optimistic or damaging cost. Beta particles can be shielded by aluminum or wood. Higher-frequency (short wavelength) gamma rays are the strongest and lightest rays. Gamma rays are more penetrating than alpha and beta particles. They can be shielded by dense resources this kind of as direct, and big masses of concrete, hardened steel, or h2o. X-rays are guy-manufactured gamma rays, and have essentially the identical qualities and purpose. Radiation detectors generally have either an analog or a digital display. Analog radiation detectors output with a needle-position scale, and digital models make a numerical Liquid crystal display digit display. Radiation detectors are generally utilized by hobbyists for basic safety detection and rock inspection, and pros in the in the nuclear, health care, mining, tutorial, and study industries.
