Operating principle
Main function of the dosimeter is the measurement of X-ray and gamma radiation within wide ranges of ambient dose equivalent rate and energy. Additional functions: detecting soft and hard gamma radiation sources, beta radiation sources, short-term and pulse radiation with exposure time assessment, and detecting moving sources as well.
Dosimeters automatically save maximum dose rate value for the time of operation and are able to store up to 999 measurement results in non-volatile memory for a long time and to subsequently transfer this data to PC.
Continuous performance self-testing is done during operation.
External control unit and external alarm unit can be attached to dosimeters for remote monitoring application.
