Ludlum Model 375/2 Digital Area Monitor

Internal Energy-Compensated G-M

Ludlum Model 375/2 Area MonitorThe Model 375/2 Digital Wall-Mount Area Monitor features an internal, energy-compensated GM detector with a range from 1 µSv/h to 10 mSv/h (0.1 mR/hr to 1 R/hr). The four-digit LED display is readable from 9 meters (30 feet) away. Backlit indicators with alarm warn of low radiation (yellow), high radiation (red), instrument failure (red), and low battery (yellow). A green status light is a positive indication of instrument operation.

Calibration of the Model 375/2 is easily performed by moving the cal dipswitch to the right, and using the pushbuttons to increment or decrement the calibration constant, dead time correction, and alarm point parameters. Parameters are stored in non-volatile memory. A five-decade logarithmic analog output is provided. A battery backup provides 48 hours of additional use after the primary power is removed.

Newer Area Monitor designs are now available.
