AT1117M Radiation Monitor

Dose measurement of γ-, x- and n-radiation in wide dose rate and energy range.
Radiometric measurement of α-, β-, γ- and n-radiation
Purpose
 
Portable combined multi-purpose instrument, which can be equipped with different external detection units for various applications as applicable.
Depending on available set of detection units the radiation monitor can be used for measurement of:
▪Ambient dose equivalent and ambient dose equivalent rate of X-ray, gamma and neutron radiation;
▪ Air kerma and air kerma rate;
▪ Directed dose equivalent and directed dose equivalent rate of X-ray and gamma radiation;
▪ Flux density and fluence of 239Pu α-and β-particles from contaminated surfaces;
▪ Flux density and fluence of neutron radiation with known energy distribution;
▪ Surface activity and number of decays of 239Pu and 90Sr + 90Y;
▪ On-line search for sources of ionizing radiation and radioactive materials.
 
Processing unit (PU/PU2), hand-held PC or desktop computer can be used for operation and indication.
 

 
1) PU / PU2
 
Detection unit sends data over dedicated communication cable to processing unit, where the data is displayed on LCD screen.
PU and PU2 has recording and memory option for up to 99 measurement results, which can further be uploaded to a PC via dedicated application software. Sound and visual alarms activate in case user-adjustable threshold levels are exceeded.
Operation algorithm provides measurement continuity and real-time statistical processing of measurement results. PU and PU2 units feature integrated detection modules, allowing in situ dose and
dose rate measurement of gamma radiation.
 
 
2) Personal computer
 
“Atexch" software with dedicated kit for connection (option) provides the following:
▪ Indication of dose and radiation measurement values, as well as writing into file and reading previously stored data
▪ Response when measured value thresholds are exceeded
▪ Error indication by instrument, message analysis and display in case of error conditions
▪ Multiple instances of program can be run in case more than one instrument is connected to different PC ports.
 
 

3) Hand-held PC
 
Data transfer from detection unit to HPC can be realised over Bluetooth (BT-DU4 Interface adapter) or cable.
Hand-help PC can virtually replace PU/PU2 in terms of functions (There is a built-in detector inside HPC), and offers some advanced features:
▪ GPS referencing of measurement results
▪ Automatic recording and storing over 10,000 measurements with GPS referencing
▪ Charge indication for HPC and Interface adapter batteries
▪ Loading data to PC for further analysis and processing by professional GARM software (Option)
▪ Automatic data transfer to a remote server by "ARMS" software [Via FTP server; 3G modem or Wi-Fi module shall be available on HPC] (Option).
