The Model AM-806 is a reinforced, industrial grade monitor that can be utilized to detect radioactive material. The system includes two large area plastic scintillators totaling 360 cubic inches, which detect gamma emitting isotopes passing through doorways and other passage ways. The AM-806 is durable and easy to operate. It requires minimal training. Installation of the AM-806 can be permanent or temporary.
The AM-806 utilizes the latest field proven, microprocessor circuitry with large area plastic scintillators. It accurately
and rapidly measures gamma radiation from 60 keV to 2 MeV. The basic system features two 40” long plastic scintillators that have a total volume of 360 cubic inches. Larger detectors are available. Each scintillator has a low energy window made of 1/32” aluminum. This permits the AM-806 to measure gamma radiation from 60 keV. The scintillators are contained in a durable aluminum housing that can be quickly disassembled. The readout and data entry are accessed through a large area color monitor that utilizes a touch sensitive screen for all data input. The AM-806 features alarm contacts, RS-232 port (easily converted to USB), Ethernet port, and optional printer.
