RHandy - Portable Fast Responding Radiation Detector
From Portable Systems
The RHandy portable Fast Responding Radiation Detector and Dose Rate Meter will instantly measure any material for the presence of radioactivity whether it is clothing, food, water or even air. The adjustable alarm threshold setting can be set to a predetermined radiation level or the recommended factory default alarm threshold can be used.
Operation of the RHandy is completely automatic once the easy-to-set operational parameters have been decided upon. Simply position the unit in close proximity to the object that needs to be scanned and listen for the varying audio alarm to sound and/or the displayed readings to increase. In addition to the units fast response there is a resettable accumulated Dose that can be used for personal absorbed Dose or can be located near the air intake to a home for accumulated Dose tracking of air filters. Tracking of the air intake filter will provide vital information when to switch off the air and when to change the filter. The selectable display readout will show the desired units of measure such as Counts per Second (CPS), or Dose-Rate (Sv/hr, or R/hr). The displayed radiation level is auto-scaling with warning messages.

RadCom has designed an easy to use fast responding portable radiation detector providing early warning of the presence of radiation contamination that anyone can use.
The selectable display readout will show the desired units of measure such as Counts per Second (CPS) or Dose Rate (nSv/h, μSv/h or mSv/h) or (nR/h, μR/h or mR/h, R/h). The displayed radiation level is auto-scaling with warning messages
In addition to the fast response of the units, the adjustable alarm threshold parameter can be set to a predetermined radiation level or the recommended factory default alarm threshold.
Operation of the RHandy is completely automatic once the easy to set operational parameters have been decided upon.
There is a resettable accumulated dose parameter that can be used for personal absorbed dose monitoring.
This feature can also be used for monitoring the home's air intake. Tracking of the air intake filter will provide vital information such as when to switch off the air and when to change the filter.
