SE MC1K Alert Detector

SE MC1K Alert Detector

Ergonomic, Handheld Survey Meter

The MC1K is an ergonomic handheld survey meter using a built-in energy compensated GM detector. It detects gamma and x-rays up to 1000 mR/hr over 4 selectable ranges. The energy compensated Geiger counter affords the detector a more linear response to gammas and x-rays over the full range.

A beep sounds and a count light flashes with each event detected.
