This compact digital radiation ratemeter features a separable two inch diameter pancake probe. Standard display units are mR/hr. Other units: µSv/h cpm, or cps are avaiable upon request. Thin probe window is recessed and protected by sturdy stainless steel grill. The instrument will detect alpha, beta and gamma radiation. The anti-saturation circuit will not fall below full scale in high fields. The TBM-15D is tested to 100 R/hr. Sonalert provides audible rate indication.
Application: This nuclear instrument's small size, light weight, separable probe and large window detector area make this a useful monitor for surveying bench tops or checking hands, clothes and fingertips for almost any radioactive contamination
