Colibri TTC & Colibri VLD: Hand-Held Health Physics Communication ALARA* Platform

Colibri TTC & Colibri VLD: Hand-Held Health Physics Communication ALARA* Platform

Description

Colibri is a comprehensive health physics instrument with unique characteristics that can lower the dose exposure of HP technicians and other workers in radiation areas. The "always on" gamma dose feature ensures the worker is always informed – even when using the Colibri for contamination surveys with attached probes. The Colibri also allows for wireless data collection from pre-positioned detectors that can be placed in radiation areas – eliminating the need to attach probes, get close to the source – then manually transcribe data. Walk into the room – and Colibri performs the survey for you – allowing exit from the rad area in a fraction of the normal time.

Colibri is available in two different versions:

  1. TTC (grey gasket) – for radiation area measurements up to 10 Sv/h (1000 rem/h). Colibri TTC will not saturate in case of a sudden increase of radiation and will always provide the user with a reliable and precise dose-rate information when most other conventional instruments will stop measuring. Thus, Colibri TTC is the ideal tool for daily survey inside nuclear buildings, for radiation post accident follow-up and emergency response follow-up (dose and contamination).
  2. VLD – Very Low Dose (red gasket) for public area measurements starting from 10 nSv/h (1 µrem/h). Colibri VLD is the smallest versatile instrument capable of measuring precisely and quickly background level of dose-rate changes starting from 10 nSv/h with a saturation limit that allows quantification of significant dose-rate hazard.

The large color touch screen reports real- time, error-free measurements for up to eight CSP-CANBERRA Smart Probes (seven via Bluetooth and one via CSP standard cable) while always displaying dose-rate at worker location.

Radiagem™ 2000 Personal Portable Dose Rate and Survey Meter

Radiagem™ 2000 Personal Portable Dose Rate and Survey Meter

Description

The Radiagem™ 2000 features excellent ergonomics such as easy handling, large custom LCD display, semi-log bargraph, average digital reading, and visual and audible alarms.

Radiagem's external smart probes extend the capabilities of the instrument to a range of general surveying applications. The probe is a fully integrated subsystem, taking and transmitting the measurement to the instrument, which is used for display. In this "smart" design, key components of hardware circuitry (high voltage, amplifier, discriminator, etc.) are located directly inside of the probe housing rather than in the host survey instrument. Also, the intelligence associated with controlling those components is located in the probe – that is, control and storage of key parameters, settings, calibrations, probe ID, alarm settings, etc.

With high voltage and digitization of the data occurring in the probe rather than the instrument, measurement quality is no longer dependent on cable quality as with older analog systems. Also, the probes can be plugged in "hot" without powering down the instrument – the Radiagem immediately recognizes the probe and automatically switches measurement mode to the mode required for that specific probe

Calibrations and QA measurements can be performed directly with the probe, without even using the instrument, by connecting the probe to a computer with Radiagem calibration software, allowing your Radiagems to remain deployed in the field.

A data-logging button allows the user to store up to 1000 date stamped data points in probe memory for external probes and in Radiagem memory for the internal dose-rate display (see probes' specifications).

A scaler/timer mode can be used for data-logging with 1 to 255 seconds acquisition time. The Radiagem 2000 firmware can be upgraded via PC serial link with the appropriate cable.

The Radiagem 2000 LCD display includes a large choice of units depending on the probe specification: c/s, Bqeq, Bqeq/cm2, Sv/h and Sveq/h.

Radiagem is also part of the emergency kits that include a variety of contamination probes.

Avior 2000 Desktop Dose Rate and Survey Meter

Avior 2000 Desktop Dose Rate and Survey Meter

Description

The Avior 2000 is a versatile alarm desktop dose rate and survey meter. Its large range of associated probes covers numerous applications.

The Avior 2000 is a standalone and resistant device adapted to various environments such as laboratories, industrial facilities, and open air yards. It is widely used for alpha and beta contamination (hands, clothes, worktops) and nearby nuclear reactors. It is also used for gamma irradiation measurements in nuclear reactors, accelerators, irradiators and Curie therapy instruments.

The Avior 2000 integrates rechargeable batteries to prevent any measurement outage when performing critical controls. It also allows the use of the Avior even when disconnected from its mains power source, in places such as working boundaries.

With its metal housing and rugged keyboard, Avior 2000 is built to resist harsh environment conditions.

Avior 2000 brings key features including a fast-reacting digital readout and analog bargraph, customizable alarm set points, dependent on the probe's features, with many measurement units: c/s, Bqeq, Bqeq/cm2, Sv/h, Sveq/h (depending on CSP connected), and Scaler/Timer mode with 1 to 1000 seconds acquisition time.

With CANBERRA Smart Probes, key components of hardware circuitry (high voltage, amplifier, discriminator, etc.) are located directly inside of the probe housing rather than the host survey instrument. Also, the intelligence associated with controlling those components is located in the probe - that is, control and storage of key parameters, settings, calibrations, probe ID, alarm settings, etc. Thus the probe is a fully integrated subsystem taking and transmitting the measurement to the instrument, which is used for display.

MIP 10 Digital Desktop Dose Rate and Survey Meter

MIP 10 Digital Desktop Dose Rate and Survey Meter

Description

The MIP 10 Digital is a versatile alarm desktop dose rate and survey meter. Its large base of associated probes covers numerous applications. The MIP 10 Digital is a standalone and resistant device adapted to various environments such as laboratories, industrial facilities, and open air yards. It is widely used for alpha and beta contamination (hands, clothes, worktops) and nearby nuclear facilities. It is also used for gamma irradiation measurements in nuclear reactors, accelerators, irradiators and Curie therapy instruments.

The MIP 10 Digital comes with two probe inputs, one dedicated to the previous generation CANBERRA probes (Nardeux) and one to the CANBERRA Smart Probes (CSP), hence allowing connection of two probes at a time. By ensuring compatibility with both generation probes, MIP 10 Digital allows a smooth transition for users who are using Nardeux probes and want to move to CSP probes.

The MIP 10 Digital integrates rechargeable batteries to prevent any measurement outage when performing critical controls. The MIP 10 Digital is fully functional when disconnected from mains, allowing for remote work in field sites for up to 40 hours.

With its metal housing and rugged keyboard, MIP 10 Digital is built to resist harsh environment conditions like the original MIP 10. Its dimensions that are identical to MIP 10 make it compatible with accessories and allow it to be stacked with other MIP 10.

MIP 10 Digital brings new key features including a fast-reacting digital readout bargraph, customizable alarm set point per probe (or range of probe for Nardeux probes), with many measurement units: c/s, Bqeq, Bqeq/cm2, Sv/h, Sveq/h (depending on CSP connected), and new Scaler/Timer mode with 1 to 1000 seconds acquisition time.

With CSP, key components of hardware circuitry (high voltage, amplifier, discriminator, etc.) are located directly inside the probe's housing rather than the host survey instrument. Also, the intelligence associated with controlling those components is located in the probe - that is, control and storage of key parameters, settings, calibrations, probe ID, alarm settings, etc. Thus the probe is a fully integrated subsystem, taking and transmitting the measurement to the instrument, which is used for display.
