- Detects and quantifies prompt gamma and neutron dose as well as residual gamma dose and dose rate
- Pre-settable audio and visual alarms
- Uses time tested “Time-to-Count” technology
- Infrared Optical Port for computer control and data downloads
The RGU-100 Military Pocket Radiac detects and quantifies prompt gamma and neutron dose as well as residual gamma dose and dose rate in support of both tactical and non-tactical use. This rugged dosimeter is equipped with a back lit LCD as well as presettable audio and visual alarms that provide clear, real time indications of radiological conditions in demanding environments. Its built-in sleep mode offers enhanced operational flexibility by extending battery life. An infrared RS-232 port that resides in the RGU-100 unit enables its data to be accessed by a computer.
This simple to operate, compact device is suitable for both tactical and non-tactical radiation protection use. Its wide dynamic ranges for dose and dose rate and ability to measure prompt as well as residual gamma radiation make it an essential tool for the foot soldier.
The RGU-100 device also lends itself to use in military vehicles and helicopters. The Pocket Radiac easily fits within the space-constrained interiors of aircraft and fighting vehicles (see circled RGU-100 unit below).
Use of the infrared RS-232 port and the RGU-100 device dose storage capability enables the efficient dose management of personnel in a field organization. The serial number of the user can easily be stored in the unit. The user’s total accumulated mission dose can then be read by a computer and, with minimal operator attendance, be assigned to the user’s Radiation Dose file. The infrared port may also be used to automate configuration of the device in the field ensuring proper configuration control of alarm settings and key parameters. This functionality can safeguard the equipment from accidental erasure of accumulated dose or incorrect setting of alarm levels by a user.
