New radiation monitor from Southern Scientific

17 March 2008

The Inspector EXP+ is a new, low-cost, hand-held radiation detector from Southern Scientific that has an external probe, LCD digital readout and provides audible indication of each count detected.

Part of the Radiation Alert range from SE International, the Inspector EXP+ (see photo on right) offers excellent sensitivity to low levels of alpha, beta, gamma and x-rays. The detector is a halogen-quenched, uncompensated GM tube with thin mica window offering an accuracy of ±10% from 1-1000 µSv/hr with reference to 137Cs.

A four-digit liquid crystal display is updated every three seconds. At low background levels, the update is the moving average for the past 30-second time period. The timed period for the moving average decreases as the radiation level increases. Audio indication is via an internally mounted bleeper that can be switched off for silent operation.
