AMP-50 Area Monitor and Ratemeter

GM Tube-Based for Lower Range Gamma Radiation

AMP-50 radiation area monitor

The AMP-50 provides real-time remote radiological monitoring. Local readout of hand-held meter allows for use as a portable survey instrument. The meter's sensitive electronics can be positioned far from the high field (25 to 350 feet away); they are not subject to destructive gamma exposure. The probe head may be placed directly into a filter compartment or against a resin tank or waste liner.The AMP-50 is designed specifically to be used in medium to low dose rate fields. The AMP-50 features linear response from 10 μR/h to
4 R/h (0.1 μSv/hr to 40 mSv/hr):
