SE Ranger Series Digital Radiation Alert Meters

SE Ranger Series Digital Radiation Alert Meters

Lightweight & Rugged

The Ranger is a small, handheld, microprocessor-based instrument offering excellent sensitivity to low levels of alpha, beta, gamma and x-rays and has built-in efficiencies for common isotopes to calculate activity in Bq and DPM. This lightweight and rugged radiation detector was designed for operating in tough environments and is perfect for industrial environments or the lab.

The Ranger EXP delivers the same maximum performance and quality from the standard Ranger with the added versatility of an external probe.

Features

  • Detects Alpha down to 2 MeV. Detects Beta down to .16 MeV
  • Backlit Digital Display
  • Red Count Light and Beeper with each count detected

Specification Ranger Ranger EXP
Detector Internal Halogen-quenched, uncompensated GM tube with thin mica window, 1.4 - 2.0 mg/cm2 areal density. Effective diameter of window is 1.77" (45mm). External Halogen-quenched, uncompensated GM tube with thin mica window, 1.4 - 2.0 mg/cm2 areal density. Effective diameter of window is 1.77" (45mm).
Operating Range

mR/hr - .001(1µR) to 100CPM - 0 to 350,000µSv/hr - .01 to 1000CPS - 0 to 5000Total Counts - 1 to 9,999,000 counts

Accuracy (Referenced to Cs137)Typically ± 15% from factory, ± 10% with NIST Source Calibration

Energy Sensitivity Detects Alpha down to 2 MeV. Detects Beta down to .16 MeV; typical detection efficiency at 1 MeV is approximately 25%. Detects Gamma down to 10 KeV through the detector window. 3340 CPM/mR/hr (137Cs). Smallest detectable level for 125I is .02µCi at contact.
Built-in Efficiencies Sulfur(35S), Strontium(90Sr/y), Cesium(137CS), Phosphorus(32P), Carbon(14C), Iodine(131I), Cobalt(60Co) and Alpha.
Selectable Alert Set Range mR/hr .001 - 50 and CPM 1 - 160,000. 70dB @ 1m. Pulsating beeper sounds the alert. Adjustable alert levels are used for mR/hr / CPM and µSv/hr / CPS. Alarm will sound when in Timer Mode when set alarm threshold is reached.
Anti-Saturation Meter will hold at OVER RANGE in fields as high as 100 times the maximum reading.
Averaging Periods Display updates every 3 seconds. At low background levels, the update is the average for the past 30-second time period. The timed period for average decreases as the radiation level increases.
Display Graphic Display with Backlight
Count Light Red LED flashes with each radiation event.
Audio Indicator Internally mounted beeper (can be switched off for silent operation)
Outputs USB for use with Free Observer USB Software
Power Requirements Two AA alkaline batteries (included)
Dimensions 3.5" x 2.7" x 1.3" (140 x 68 x 33 mm) Unit: 3.5" x 2.7" x 1.3" (140 x 68 x 33 mm)
Probe: 10.25" x 2.75" x 1" (260 x 70 x 25 mm)
