Radioactivity meter GS3 with acoustic signal, internal memory and software

This professional Radioactivity meter is a precise instrument to measure alpha, beta and gamma radioactivity. The Radioactivity meter has a wide measuring range and can be used for diverse  measurements types as for sporadic measurements in situations, long-lasting measurements or for controls. The Radioactivity meter provides with a certified measurement of the environmental radiation as well as the radiation which is artificially increased up to 500 times over the limit value. This Radioactivity meter has diverse applications. This Geiger meter has been usually used in nuclear power stations. Everyday it is most commonly used in the control of imported goods, as well as to measure the food which has been previously irradiated. This Radioactivity meter can be also used to measure natural radioactive radiation as the one which appears near the sea and it fulfills all the requirements when controlling building materials. Radiation values can be recorded in the Radioactivity meter memory or they can be transferred to a computer to be valued by means of a device included in the delivery (software and RS 232 data cable).

- Accurate measuring instrument 
(every Radioactivity meter has a final control, this control is carried out in the Institute for the protection against radioactivity and  inspected by a State Technical School with a control certification)
- Types of radiations 
(the meter measures Alpha, beta and gamma radiations)
- Duration 
(this meter can measures radiation during day and night/ it is not necessary to switch on/off the the instrument/ battery does not need to be changed for 10 years)
- Big Display
- Data Memory
- Data can be valued in a PC 
(the software included in the delivery allows data to be transferred to a computer to be valued)
- Certification 
(GAMMA - SCOUT ® security is controlled by the TÜV and it meets the CE standards and the American standards FCC-15 / it can be also used in planes) 
- Version (GS2) 
(meter GAMMA-SCOUT® w / ALERT produces an acoustic signal if the radiation is over the limit value)

The software is used to transfer radiation values which are recorded in the meter to a PC or a computer. Measuring data can also be transferred to other calculation programs such as Excel to be valued (see above the possibilities to download it).
