The Radiation Alert® Area Monitor is user-friendly, versatile, small, and lightweight. GM and Scintillation detector configurations are available. The user interface is an intelligent, resistive, touch-screen display, featuring a large five digit LED readout. The area monitor interfaces with either an internal or external detector; software is included in the price. User-selectable warning indicators alarm at low and high radiation alarm levels, low battery, and detector failure. NIST calibration certificates and Certificates of Conformance are available upon request.
