With the launch of the original Radiation Pager in 1996, Sensor Technology Engineering emerged from the shadows of U.S. National Security and created the first broadly employed Personal Radiation Detector for Police, Customs and First Responders. Now, this classic device has been reimagined and re-engineered to be the smallest, lightest, fully ruggedized and ANSI 42.32 compliant PRD on the market today.
The Radiation Pager 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 can use to reliably detect and localize radiation sources. 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 single digit display, the flashing indicator, or the audible tone.
