AT1117M Radiation monitor

General control of pollution by radioactive materials in impulse count rate mode

Consisting of:

  • BDPS-02 Smart probe
  • PU Processing unit

Radiation monitor with universal smart probe BDPS-02 is designed to control general level of pollution by radioactive materials in impulse count rate mode. Radiation monitor features separate alpha particles flux density with beta particles flux density, as well as gamma radiation dose rate measurement mode.

Processing unit has a built in Geiger-Muller tube to control gamma radiation dose and dose rate at operator's site.


Operating principle

End window GM tube with detector working area of 14 cm2 and thin end window to detect integral alpha, beta and gamma radiation with this window open. Supplied alpha filters can be used to measure alpha and beta particle flux separately. Compensating filter shall be used at BDPS-02 for dose rate and dose measurement.

BDPS-02 sends data to processing unit to be displayed on a big LCD-screen. Operation algorithm provides measurement continuity and real time statistical processing of measurement results.
