RADIATION ALERT RANGER
RADIATION ALERT RANGER
SE International Radiation Alert Ranger
The Ranger offers maximum performance in a lightweight, rugged nuclear radiation detector for surveying at the facility or in the field. The Ranger has been designed for industrial environments, but it still has all of the features you’ve come to love in the lab. It’s small, handheld, digital NORM meter and offers excellent sensitivity to low levels of alpha, beta, gamma, and x-rays.
This model has built-in efficiencies for common isotopes to calculate activity in Bq and DPM. It has a backlit digital display, a red count light, and a beeper that sounds with each count detected. Other features include selectable alert levels, an adjustable timer, and an optional wipe test plate for swipes. Internal memory and the free Observer USB Software allow you to download your data, and set computer alarms.
Detector radiation_icon_bllack alpha_icon_black beta_icon_black gamma_icon_black x-ray_icon_black Internal Halogen-quenched, uncompensated GM tube with thin mica window, 1.4-2.0 mg/cm2 areal density. Effective diameter of window is 45 mm (1.77 in.).
Operating Range mR/hr – .001 (1µR) to 100 CPM – 0 to 350,000 µSv/hr – .01 to 1000 CPS – 0 to 5000 Total Counts- 1 to 9,999,000 counts
Energy Sensitivity Detects Alpha down to 2 MeV. Detects Beta down to .16 MeV; typical detection efficiency at 1 MeV is approx. 25%. Detects Gamma down to 10 KeV through the detector window. 3340 CPM/mR/hr (137Cs). Smallest detectable level for 125I is .02 µCi at contact.
Accuracy Reference to Cs137 Typically ±15% from factory, ±10% with NIST Source Calibration NIST Calibration Additional
Built-In Efficiencies Sulfur (35S), Strontium (90Sr/y), Cesium (137Cs), Phosphorus (32P), Carbon (14C), Iodine (131I), Cobalt (60Co), and Alpha
Selectable Alert Set Range mR/hr .001 – 100 and CPM 1 – 350,000. Pulsating beeper sounds the alert. Adjustable alert levels are used for mR/hr / CPM, and µSv/hr / CPS. 70db @ 1m. Alarm will sound when in Timer Mode when set alarm threshold is reached.
Anti-Saturation Meter will hold at OVER RANGE in fields as high as 100 times the maximum reading.
Averaging Periods Display updates every 3 seconds. At low background levels, the update is the average for the past 30-second time period. The timed period for the average decreases as the radiation level increases.
