TBM-3SR, top and bottom
The total weight of this alpha-beta-gamma radiation detector with its internal standard pancake Geiger Mueller detector and battery is only 22 ounces. The three Linear ranges are: 0-500, 5000, and 50,000 cpm and 0-0.15, 1.5 and 15 mR/hr. The anti saturation circuit has been designed and tested to 100 R/hr. Thousands of this model are in use around the world. The TBM-3SR is cited by the National Institute of Standards and Technology, SP 981, for Fire Department use and emergency response personnel.
