Ten Roentgens & Counting…

If Madame Curie had owned this, she'd be alive today. (She'd be more than 140 years old, of course, but still….) Our Radex RD1503 digital radiation meter evaluates the ambient level of gamma radiation, and can detect objects polluted by beta active radioactive nuclides. It uses a Geiger counter to detect the amount of gamma radiation within 40 seconds. It indicates the ambient dose equivalent in µSv/hr (0.05 to 9.99) and the µRem/hr exposure dose rate on a scale of 0.1 to1.25. The values are displayed on a 1-3/4" x 1-1/8" LCD screen. The presence of each particle is indicated by a clicking sound, for quick identification of affected areas, and it has an audio alarm with 3 adjustable ranges. The unit measures 4" x 2-1/4" x 1" and comes with a detailed manual and technical certificate. Requires (2) "AAA" batteries. Made in Russia. CE.
