Functions and Features (all models)
- Large range of calbration:
In measuring mode, the display shows the current radiation measurement reading.
The display also temporarily shows the average H of the last day (24h, 12 am to 12 am).
- Large Scale:
GAMMA-SCOUT® is calibrated across a wide scale (0.01 up to 5000.00 µSv/h).
- Tested Calibration:
Each GAMMA-SCOUT® radiation meter is subjected to a final test. This test is supervised by
the Institute of Radiation Protection; a government controlled university for Applied Technology.
The tested device must be in a confidence interval of 5% in comparison to a master.
This master is adjusted to a gauged reference Cs-137 emitter.
- Reference Isotope Not Equal to Cs-137:
The conversion from impulses per time into the dose rate is based on Cs-137. If other isotopes
are present, the impulses per time can be directly displayed, and can be converted by using
- Dose Rate and Dose:
GAMMA-SCOUT® can be used as a dose meter (cumulative radiation).
- Change Sievert to Rem:
The dose rate may be displayed in Sievert or Rem.
- Energy-Saving Permanent Operation:
The GAMMA-SCOUT® monitors radiation day and night and logs data for later download.
Due to sophisticated electronics, its battery lasts for years. The model “RECHARGEABLE” works
with a rechargeable battery.
- Data Storage:
GAMMA-SCOUT® stores all registered pulses in its internal memory and keeps them ready for you
to use when desired. 32,000 Readings: For constant monitoring of the environmental data, the interval
of data storage is set on a value of one per week. This equals 600 years of memory capacity.
The user can set up smaller intervals, which maxes out the memory capacity sooner.
To clear the memory content, see the manual.
GAMMA-SCOUT® meets all European CE standards as well as the
“FCC 15 standard” of the USA. GAMMA-SCOUT® may be carried on aircraft.
GAMMA-SCOUT® w/alert (basic functions plus alert and ticker)
- Threshold for Dose Rate:
This model features an acoustic alert when radiation level exceeds a user programmed threshold..
- Threshold for (cumulative) Dose:
GAMMA-SCOUT® w/ALERT offers an acoustic alarm when a user programmed threshold for the
cumulative dose is exceeded.
The user can set an acoustical ticker which activates with each gamma pulse detected.
To save battery resources, the signal shuts down after ten minutes and must be restarted.
On devices with rechargeable batteries, the ticker will not shut down.
GAMMA-SCOUT® ONLINE / REAL TIME (with the functions of the Alert-model)
- Used in Measurement Stations:
GAMMA-SCOUT® sends measured impulses in a 2 second interval
(synchronized with the measurement ) via USB-Port to a connected PC.
GAMMA-SCOUT® RECHARGEABLE (with the functions of the Alert-model)
- Rechargeable: power supply, charged via USB (power supply unit or PC).
