GSM-506 Survey Meter

with Internal Energy Compensated G-M probe, ideal for Nuclear Medicine

Older stock, on sale. Similar to the Ludlum 14C, but half the cost, and auto-ranging.

GSM-506 blue version


The GSM-506 is four range microprocessor survey meter that utilizes an external probe and internal energy compensated G-M probe for an added high range. The internal G-M detector is active on all four ranges, with a range of 0-2 R/hr. The meter can be calibrated for up to two external probes. Standard features include auto-ranging, integration, peak hold, instant zero, and linearization of dose response from gamma probes. The option of CPM or dose is selectable from a front panel switch. The GSM-506 Survey Meter meets nuclear medicine requirements. Several probe configurations are available. The most common probe configuration for nuclear medicine inlcludes the GSM-506 survey meter with the HP-265 pancake G-M probe. Current stock is older stock from the blue series. For the latest version, try our DSM-506 digital radiation detector with internal probe.
