Rad-60 Alarming Dosimeter

Rad-60 Alarming Dosimeter

The RAD-60 is a Personal Alarming Radiation Dosimeter. It’s a precise and reliable instrument for ensuring the safety of personnel. Ideally, the RAD-60 is used in stand-alone conditions for everyday radiation monitoring . The RAD-60 can also be switched into System Mode, for the purpose of tracking Personnel Dose records and generating compliance reports.

The design includes state-of-the-art technology with built in memory for retrieving dose, even during power-down. It eliminates outside interference from shock and RF. The RAD-60 is easily programmed by the user, has a digital display, and operates with a single AAA alkaline battery.

With the push of a button, you can turn the unit on/off, change the digital display to read dose or dose rate, select from several dose and dose rate alarm levels, turn the chirp function on/off, reset the integrated dose, and perform battery tests. The large digital display gives instant dose or dose rate readings with a loud audible alarm.
