RadEye HEC
The RadEye HEC model is a portable
sample counting system, providing
simultaneous alpha and beta
radiation measurements. Readings
are automatically logged for
later retrieval to a PC.
Product Specifications
The RadEye HEC is a sample counting
system that provides simultaneous
alpha and beta measurements.
The system incorporates a 2" (5 cm)
dual scintillation phosphor mated to
a sliding drawer accommodating a
2" (5 cm) diameter sample. Using a
height-adjustable sampling area the
drawer permits the use of different
sample types and must slide fully to
the rear to initiate the counting.
The housing is made of durable plastic
to withstand even rough handling. The
built-in handle, in combination with the
battery option, allows up to 800 hours
field use before the batteries have to
be charged again.
The last 4500 values of the measured
data in the selected measuring unit are
recorded internally and can be read out
via serial or USB interface. Additionally
the RadEye HEC logs the last 250
alarms, errors and changes of the
configuration. All events can be read
out via serial interface. A real time
clock is provided to add a time stamp
to all buffer data.
The characteristic features of the
RadEye HEC are the use of sophisticated low power technology components, well known from all RadEye
versions, and microprocessor based
fully automatic self checks. No
maintenance is required.
