AMP-50 Area Monitor and Ratemeter

GM Tube-Based for Lower Range Gamma Radiation


The AMP-50 provides real-time remote radiological monitoring. Local readout of hand-held meter allows for use as a portable survey instrument. The meter's sensitive electronics can be positioned far from the high field (25 to 350 feet away); they are not subject to destructive gamma exposure. The probe head may be placed directly into a filter compartment or against a resin tank or waste liner.The AMP-50 is designed specifically to be used in medium to low dose rate fields. The AMP-50 features linear response from 10 μR/h to
4 R/h (0.1 μSv/hr to 40 mSv/hr):

• rugged construction, waterproof detector housing and cable
• quick-disconnect connectors allow customization of cable
length and facilitate easy decontamination
• built-in communication port for use with DDC-16, WRM
• smoothed digital display offers accurate, stable readings
• user-selectable internal alarm threshold
