ERK-525 Nuclear Emergency Response Kit

Dual-Probe Survey Meter with Pancake G-M and Scintillation Capacity

ERK-525 Emergency Kit for radiation detection

The ERK-525 Emergency Response Kit includes the DSM-525 digital survey meter (dual probes), MRSP-1 Plastic Scintillation Probe, HP-265 pancake G-M probe with check source and holder. The HP-265 probe is used for general purpose alpha, beta, gamma radiation survey. The MRSP-1 probe is a useful MicroR radiation detector for gamma measurement. This emergency response kit is ideal for police, fire and rescue, as well as scientific applications.


DSM-525 Dual Probe Survey Meter/Scaler
with digital display

The DSM-525 is a microprocessor Scaler/Ratemeter with a large digital display and separate inputs for 2 detectors. The 525 has separate adjustable HV supplies for each detector and each detector can have different DOSE & CPM calibrations. Inputs can have different functions i.e. Ratemeter on one input and Scaler on the other input. A threshold that is variable from 0– 100 % on the input signal eliminates unwanted signals below preset amplitudes. Alarms are provided from 5 - 95% of full scale. Both probes can be connected and only require adjusting selector switch to the probe for completely automatic operation.
