Easily measure scatter & leakage with 3 different
models to choose from (see Key Features and Benefits).
The Radcal Survey Meter (RSM), pressurized ion chamber meter, provides highly sensitive measurements of exposure or dose. It can simultaneously display the rate and either integrated value or highest rate (peak) seen by the instrument. The integrated value or peak rate can be reset using one of the four convenient front panel mounted buttons.
The impressive 256K color display provides an optimized presentation of the data and is accompanied with icons informing the user of the active functions and instrument status. All logged data can be written in csv format to a standard USB thumb drive for convenient retrieval by a PC spreadsheet or database program. Alarms are manifested using color changes on the display and an acknowledgeable audio output.
All Radcal Survey Meters can be used for a variety of medical and health physics applications. They are ideal for measuring exposure rates from leakage and scatter radiation around diagnostic and therapeutic x-ray rooms. Make the Radcal Survey Meter your next choice in the most advanced survey meter available today.
