Southern Scientific Radhound Multi-purpose Digital Radiation Meter
The Radhound Multi-purpose Digital Radiation Meter by Southern Scientific is a meter suitable for use in survey radiation digitally and monitor to contaminations and requirements for radiation protection.
The Southern Scientific Radhound is a feature packed digital radiation monitor that is extremely simple, easy to use and cost effective. The count rate is displayed in large clear numbers and also on a bar scale. A steady display by our smart averaging software can be read with confidence while still providing a fast response.
For source finding, a one button push changes the display to a histogram plot. Alpha and Beta/Gamma counts are displayed separately or on the same screen.
The Radhound also has a time for surveying to count function.
Low cost and easy to use.
Clear digital LCD display with backlight.
GM and scintillation detector options.
Scaler timer function.
Ergonomic tilt stand.
Fully adjustable alarm levels.
Health physics: for contamination monitoring
on surfaces, clothing and objects etc.
Nuclear medicine departments, suitable for 125I, 99Tc etc.
Radiological survey work and lab use.
Emergency planning, response and clean up.
