MC1K Handheld Radiation Radiation Survey Meter

Pocket Detector for Gamma and X-ray Radiation

MC1K Survey MeterThe ergonomic MC1K is a handheld survey meter featuring an internal energy compensated G-M detector. This survey meter detects gamma and x-rays up to 1000 mR/hr over 4 selectable ranges. Audio and a red LED light activate with each disintegration detected.


Detector: Energy compensated halogen-quenched GM tube.
Operating Range:
X1 position 0 - 1 mR/hr or 0 - .01 mSv/hr
X10 position 1 - 10 mR/hr or 0 - .1 mSv/hr
X100 position 5 - 100 mR/hr or 0 - 1 mSv/hr
X1000 position 50 - 1000 mR/hr or 0 - 10 mSv/hr
Range Switch: X1, X10, X100, X1000.
Accuracy: Typically ±15% of reading (Cs137)
MC1K Energy Sensitivity: Detects gamma and x-rays down to 40 keV. Response is flat from 40 keV up. Normal background, approximately 4 CPM.
Audio Indicator: Internally mounted beeper (can be turned off for silent operation).
Anti-Saturation: Meter will hold at full scale in fields as high as 100 times the maximum reading.
Power Requirements: 9-volt alkaline battery up to 2,000 hrs at normal backgroundMC1K Energy Response Curve
Battery Life: up to 2,000 hours at normal background radiation levels.
Temperature Range: -20° to 55° C (-4° to 131° F).
Weight: 217 g (7.7 oz)
Output: 3.5 mm headphone jack with pulse out.
Size: 209 x 71 x 50 mm (8.2 x 2.8 x 1.9 in.)
