DESCRIPTION

The PAM-100 series meters are portable hand-held instruments intended for the measurement of surface contamination by alpha, beta and gamma emitting radionuclides - depending on the model.

It can be used in many applications wherever contamination is expected and needs to be monitored, for example: in nuclear power plants, reprocessing plants, the decommissioning and dismantling of nuclear facilities and the management of radioactive waste, in medical industry, in research and environmental applications.

Meter is designed as a simple, user-friendly instrument to facilitate ease of use. Into design was incorporated a high degree of shock resistance.

The detectors used are large-area plastic scintillators.

The control elements and digital display and are located in the upper part. The graphic display shows the count rate and activity as a number or in bar-graph form. A battery status indicator is also displayed.

Back illumination of the display can be activated if required.

Incoming pulses are acoustically indicated using the internal buzzer. The acoustic indication can be switched on/off by pressing the respective push button. Communication with an external PC is available using a serial line through USB connector. The port is intended for service purposes.
