AT2140 Dosemeter

Compact energy efficient device to measure ambient dose equivalent rate and continuous dose of gamma radiation.

The dosemeter can be used by radiation safety agencies for radiation monitoring or by inexperienced people concerned with radiation background level in their place of work, residence and recreation, as well as for educational purposes.

Operating Principle
Device operating principle is based on the process of count rate measurement of impulses, generated in Geiger-Muller counter tube under the influence of radiation. Count rate is converted automatically into measurable physical values throughout the range.
Dosemeters allow selecting one of eight pre-set dose rate and dose threshold levels.
Energy compensating filter facilitates energy dependence correction of sensibility in entire energy range of gamma radiation. Microprocessorbased unit is responsible for controlling the Dosemeter operating modes, calculations, storing and displaying measurement results and for selfchecking function.


Applications
  • Radiation protective measures in case of nuclear disasters
  • Civil protection
