Model 451EXL
! Complete remote radiation
information management for Model
451P and 451B Ion Chamber
Survey Meters
! Color-coded data provides quick
identification for radiation levels and
alarm acknowledgment status
Introduction
Features
The 451 Assistant for Excel is an Excel Add-in, a program that adds optional commands and
features to Microsoft® Excel. The 451 Assistant provides remote control for many of the 451
functions, real-time data logging with user defined alarm parameters and a real time virtual
instrument display. The 451 Assistant automatically loads with Excel once it is installed.
The 451 Assistant data logging function automatically records real time measured data in an
active Excel worksheet. Each measurement in the data log is automatically placed in the active
worksheet cell, then the active cell moves down to the next row of cells where it will place the
next set of measured data. Each recorded measurement is time and date stamped. The 451 Assistant
provides user configurable audible and visual alarms for the real time logged data. The picture
and data shows radiation levels above the preset alarm in red, the blue data represents the radiation
level below the alarm that has not been acknowledged. The black data shows when the alarm was
acknowledged. See Control Options for more details.
The 451 Assistant for Excel allows the user to configure the 451’s internal data logging and
alarm settings. It may also be used to download the 451’s internal data log and saves it in an
Excel worksheet where it can be easily graphed for quick trend analysis.
The 451 Assistant provides automatic timed integrated dose measurement over a user defined
integration period or user controlled integrated dose measurement. After the integration timer
has expired or the user has stopped integration, the 451 Assistant retrieves the integrated dose
from the 451 and inserts the integrated dose in the active worksheet cell and the average dose rate
is placed in the next cell to the right.
• Real time data logging in protected
Excel worksheet
Applications
This Model 451EXL information management software program is ideal for the facility Radiation
Safety Officer or anyone responsible for maintaining a permanent record of spills and accidents
for adherence to state and NRC requirements. The remote control of the 451 series of Ion Chambers
may be accessed by any computer on your facility network providing remote information
management.
• Virtual instrument display with audible
and visual alarm indication
• Remote user definable alarm settings
• Downloads 451’s internal data log into
Excel worksheet
• Provides remote control and instrument
configuration

Specifications
Controls
The 451 Assistant menu and toolbar provide an interface for the user to
remotely control the 451, configure the 451, download the 451’s internal
data log and start / stop real time data logging and integrated dose
measurements
Download Log The 451 is capable of internally logging data at a user
defined interval from 1 to 255 seconds with a total capacity of up to
2700 data points. This feature allows the user to download the 451’s
internal data log into the active Excel worksheet
Options Allows the user to change many properties of the 451 Assistant
for Excel and several of the 451s’ properties. The user may configure
the various visual and audio alarm features of the 451 Assistant for Excel
for each data point that is logged. The 451 Assistant can be configured
to use 2 or 4 alarm states. The four alarm states are acknowledged
normal (below alarm level), unacknowledged normal, acknowledged
alarm and unacknowledged alarm. The user may also select the
communication port used by the 451 (default is COM1). The 451’s
internal data logging parameters and alarm settings may also be changed
from the Options menu
Connect / Disconnect Connects or disconnects the 451 to the
computer’s communication port
Start / Stop Starts and stops computer data logging. When data logging
is started, logged data is placed in the active Excel worksheet and the
worksheet is protected to provide data security
Logging Properties Allows the user specify computer data logging
parameters. The data logging sample interval (2 seconds to 999 hours),
total data logging period (2 seconds to 49 days) and computer data log
alarms may be specified through this menu. These parameters are
independent of the 451’s internal data logging functions
Integrate… Allows the user to select timed integrated dose measurement
or user controlled integrated dose measurement. The user may also
specify the integration period for timed integration from 1 minute to
999 hours. When timed integrate mode is selected, the 451 Assistant
for Excel stops the integrated dose measurement after the specified
integration period has expired
When timed integrate mode is not selected, the user controls the
integration period and the integration time is displayed in real time. The
integrated dose and average dose rate are recorded in the active Excel
worksheet when integration is complete

Introduction
The Model 470A Panoramic Survey Meter
is designed to be used in and around
medical facilities for many low level
radiation monitoring activities. The Model
470A has a very low energy response
(down to 10 keV). That makes it ideal for
diagnostic x-ray suites, including
mammography. Since this meter can
measure up to 1000 R/h, it is also ideal
for radiotherapy facilities. The Cutie Pie
style of this meter allows it to sit on three
legs for long-term monitoring or to be used
as a hand-held survey meter with the
convenient grip handle.

* An NRC or Agreement State license is required. When
applying, please designate source as Technical
Operations Model 773. A copy of your license must
accompany the order.
This sturdy, easy-to-use device permits the safe, accurate calibration of instruments used
for surveying gamma radiation. It enables users of dosage-measuring equipment to perform
routine checks at will or as necessary to meet the regulations of the NRC and Agreement
States.
The heavy-duty lead container holds 165 mCi of 137Cs, encapsulated at one end of a control
rod. Since 137Cs has a long half-life (30 years), there is no need to calculate a correction
factor for at least 1 to 2 years after the instrument is shipped.
Applications
The source can be kept in either of two positions: stored or exposed. In the fully-shielded
“stored” position, radiation at the container’s surface is less than 200 mR/hr; at 1 meter
away it is less than 10 mR/hr. In the “exposed” position, the source faces a 36° (horizontal)
x 20° (vertical) port at the shield’s side. The radiation field can be varied by means of three
built-in attenuators (transmission factors 0.25, 0.10, and 0.10). These permit calibration of
three meter scales, each at 20% and 80% of full scale, using only one source-to-meter
distance measurement. The source is moved from “stored” to “exposed” merely by raising
the control rod. For safety, the 137Cs source cannot be removed from its shield, except by the
manufacturer.
A built-in tape measure helps determine the distance from the 137Cs source to the instrument
being calibrated. A padlock (not included) can be used to prevent unauthorized use of the
equipment. A convenient carrying handle is included.
