RadAlert 200

REF: RA200

The RadAlert 200 offers the ultimate flexibility and monitoring capability in a  Dose Rate alarm. This unit actually includes 2 separate GM tubes for redundancy and range extension with a linear range from 1 to 30,000 mR/hr and 2 separate trigger levels with different color flashing lights.   The remote alarm contains a battery backup (8 AA NiMH) which maintains its charge via a trickle current from the 12 VDC supply.  The remote alarm is connected to the detector unit via a 100 foot cable. a flashing red LED light indicates an alarm condition, a solid green LED indicates no alarm, and a flashing yellow LED indicates a dose rate that exceeds a second level which can be adjusted by the user. An audible buzzer, which can be adjusted as well as turned on or off, sounds when the alarm is triggered. The detector unit contains a digital display indicating the alarm trigger level, as well as an independent resettable timer that can be coupled to a door switch to count when the alarm is triggered and a room door is opened. The remote unit contains  3 separate modules which show time lapsed when radiation is present, total integrated exposure, and instantaneous exposure rate allowing the user to monitor multiple aspects of a rooms exposure history. A separate button quickly load tests the batter condition, while a separate LED indicator on the remote unit indicates if the unit is in an error condition or running on battery power.
