Following the release of the original Radiation Pager a need evolved for a variant focused on the requirements of specialized operators. The Radiation Pager-S was developed as a Personal Radiation Device optimized for nuclear search and the localization of a gamma radiation source. By incorporating features from premium STE products such as a delta-rate search algorithm and a threshold update function, the instrument’s capability was significantly enhanced. Now, this classic device has been re-engineered to create the smallest, lightest, fully ruggedized ANSI N42.32 compliant nuclear search PRD on the market today.
The Radiation Pager-S employs a large cesium iodide crystal scintillator and a quality photomultiplier tube for gamma radiation sensing. This detector, coupled with electronics that have been tuned for performance and optimized for low power, yields a very sensitive device, with fast response time, that any operator use reliably.
When the Radiation Pager detects radiation at levels above the natural background, it quickly alerts the operator by flashing a daylight-viewable indicator and by either sounding an alarm or vibrating. The operator can easily locate the radiation source using the duty-cycle based audio or vibration alerts, the single digit display, and the threshold update function.
