RDS 40WE Wide Energy Range Meter

RDS 40WE Wide Energy Range Meter
ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY FOR A SAFER WORLD
RDS 40WE
Wide Energy Survey Meter
The RDS-40WE is a Digital Handheld Dose
Rate Meter designed for use by personnel
who may be exposed to gamma and/or Xray radiation in their work. RDS-40WE
provides either sequential or fixed dose rate
alarming system (values are programmable
with the CSW configuration software via
IrDA link) and the ability to store dose rate
events into the histogram memory of the
meter. The easy to use RDS-CSW
software is required for downloading the
data into a PC via IrDA port.
The compact and durable RDS-40WE is a
microprocessor controlled instrument that
employs a single push button user
interface. The menu structure is very
straightforward and easy to understand with
messages and information displayed on the
digital LCD meter face. The six-digit display
also shows the dose rate and numerous
other essential notifications. Different alarm
situations are indicated by a combination of
audio-visual effects on the LCD and a
buzzer (dose rate, dose, low battery, defect,
dose rate overflow).
