The rugged and easy to use RDS-80A and RDS-80 Surface Contamination Meters are versatile contamination detectors which have been designed for a wide range of applications in different fields of radiation protection. Versatile enough to be used in the nuclear industry, rescue/haz mat operations, and any application involving the potential for abnormal radiation contamination levels (including the monitoring of radiological contamination of food and other goods). The RDS-80 is one of the few instruments that display in both CPS and Bq/Cm2, a valuable feature for those concerned about lingering radioactive contamination levels resulting from the Fukushima incident. This digital, handheld meter is ideal for anyone who needs to locate and detect contaminated surfaces and objects and does not require extensive training and experience with radiation and radiation safety.
The main functions are comprised of contamination measurements with easy to enable/disable alarm, automatic conversion to activity value and other surface contamination measurements. The RDS-80A also has the ability to store events into the meter’s internal memory using the histogram function.
The use of configuration software (CWS) is required for downloading the data into a PC via IrDA port).
