AT1125 and AT1125A Radiation Monitors

Portable high-sensitivity Radiation Monitors are designed to search for and detect sources of gamma radiation, measure ambient gamma radiation dose equivalent rate, alpha and beta particle flux density from flat contaminated surfaces, as well as for radiometric monitoring of radionuclides in samples using 0.5-litre Marinelli beaker.
 
For radiometric radionuclide content monitoring in samples the following Monitor design variants are possible:
1) 137Cs monitoring
2) 137Cs and 134Cs + 137Cs monitoring
3) 131I, 137Cs and 134Cs + 137Cs monitoring
FEATURES
 
  • Multiple functions
  • High sensitivity
  • Field operation capability over a wide temperature range
  • Integrated system for measurement path LED stabilization
  • Threshold level crossing alarm
  • Memory function for up to 100 measurement results
  • Writing, storing and transmitting measurement data into PC via RS232 or USB (adapter) interface

APPLICATIONS

  • Search, detection and localization of ionizing radiation sources
  • Radiation monitoring of environment, areas, facilities, raw products and materials
  • Rapid radiation monitoring of 137Cs content in wild-growing mushrooms and berries
  • Dosimetric and Radiometric monitoring of manufacturing facilities
  • Scrap metal radiation monitoring

OPERATING PRINCIPLE
 
By equipping Radiation Monitors with NaI(Tl)-scintillation detector high sensitivity and ability to rapidly respond to minor changes in radiation background can be achieved. Thus the instruments allow high-accuracy dose rate measurement in a wide range of gamma energies due to "Spectrum-Dose" correction functions in the energy range from 0.05 to 3 MeV.
 
Apart from scintillation detector AT1125A Radiation Monitor is equipped with a Geiger-Muller tube, that significantly expands the range of ambient gamma radiation dose equivalent rate measurement.
 
This device features a possibility of sample radiometric radionuclide content monitoring with lead protection unit indoors and express-testing in field environment without lead protecting unit.

The Radiation Monitros can be delivered with an external BDPS-02 Smart Probe, designed for measuring alpha and beta particle flux density from flat contaminated surfaces, gamma and X-radiation ambient dose equivalent and ambient dose equivalent rate.
