palmRAD 907 Nuclear Radiation Meter


Product Details

The palmRAD 907 nuclear radiation monitoring meter provides multiple monitoring and surveying options in an easy-to-use handheld device. It measures alpha, beta, gamma, and x-ray radiation which can be displayed in rates and total counts. The user can switch between mR/hr, Svi cpm, and total counts.

This model would function excellently for nearly any application. Whether the duty is radioactive food and water monitoring, contaminated soil and water detection, or isotope identification, the Berkeley Nucleonics PalmRAD 907 can provide the robust functionality, yet simplicity, you need to provide accurate and reliable radiological data each and every time.

Detector Halogen-quenched Geiger-Mueller tube. Effective diameter 1.75" (45 mm). Mica window density 1.5-2.0 mg/cm
Display 4-digit liquid crystal display with mode indicators
Averaging Periods Display updates every 3 seconds, showing the average for the past 30-second time period at normal levels. The averaging period decreases as the radiation level increases. User can select fast 3-second averaging period.
Operating Range mR/hr: .001 to 100.0; CPM: 0 to 300,000; Total: 1 to 9,999,000 counts; mSv/hr: .01 to 1,000; CPS: 0 to 5,000
Efficiency Sr-90 (546KeV, 2.3MeV max): approx. 75%; C-14 (156KeV max): approx. 11%; Bi-210 (1.2 MeV max): approx. 64%; Am-241 (5.5 MeV ): approx. 36%
Sensitivity 3500 CPM/mR/hr referenced to Cs-137
Accuracy ± 15%
Timer Can set 1-10 minute sampling periods in 1-minute increments, 10-50 minute sampling periods in 10-minute increments, and 1-24 hour sampling periods in 1-hour increments
Count Light Red LED flashes with each radiation event
Audio Beeper beeps with each radiation event; can be muted
Outputs Dual miniature jack drives CMOS or TTL devices, sending counts to computer or data logger. Submini jack allows for electronic calibration.
Anti-Saturation Readout holds at full scale in fields up to 100 times the maximum reading
