Ludlum Model 375 Area Monitor

Model 375 Area Monitor by LudlumDigital Display

Part# 48-2230

The Model 375 Area Monitor is a compact digital device designed for monitoring radiation areas. This monitor accommodates a wide choice of detectors for varying applications; it is equipped with a local readout and alarms. These monitors may be connected to an optional auxiliary indicators and annunciators in remote locations. The user-friendly, digital design enhances setup and operation. The Model 375 can be networked to a central PC-based station where data and alarms are logged.
