AT6101DR Spectrometer

AT6101DR Multifunction portable spectrometer is designed for radionuclide identification, 40K, 226Ra, 232Th natural radionuclide content measurement, 134Cs and 137Cs man-made radionuclide surface activity in situ measurement in soils and subsoils, as well as specific 137Cs, 134Cs and 131I radionuclide activity measurement in water, foodstuffs, agricultural and forestry products without preliminary sampling.


Spectrometer may also be used for measurement of ambient gamma radiation dose equivalent rate on objects of radiation monitoring.
Internal GPS-receiver provides measurement data geo-referencing function.

OPERATING PRINCIPLE

Detecting unit in a temperature-and-shock-resistant dust-proof and moistureproof container detects gamma radiation of monitored radionuclides.

Spectrometric data from smart probe is sent via Bluetooth-adapter to display on hand-held PC (Tablet PC) screen.

Instrumental spectra processing algorithm in hand-held PC (Tablet PC) software is capable to display radioisotope composition data as specific or surface activity of certain radionuclides or their concentration, specific effective activity of natural radionuclides.

Version with Tablet PC can display measurement results with GPS-referencing.

Ambient gamma-radiation dose equivalent rate value in inspection point is determined by instrument spectrum analysis with “spectrum-dose” operational function.

Radioactive anomalies are searched in integral count rate measurement mode.
