The RDS-80 Surface Contamination Meter is a versatile contamination detector which has been designed for a wide range of applications in different fields of radiation protection in nuclear industry, rescue and other operations, involving a possibility for abnormal contamination levels.
The Digital, Hand Held Pulse Rate Meter is suitable for personnel who need to locate and detect contaminated surfaces/objects during their work.
The functions comprise contamination measurements with alarm functions and automatic conversion to surface activity value and additionally surface contamination measurement with a possibility to store the histogram events into the meter´s internal memory.
The use of configuration software (RDS-CSW ) is required for downloading the data into a PC via IrDA port.
Radiation detected: alpha >2 MeV, betaEmax >100 keV, gamma and x-rays from 5 keV to 3 MeV
