Radhound Multi-purpose Digital Radiation Meter
A multi-purpose digital radiation survey meter suitable for
all your contamination monitoring and radiation protection
requirements, the Radhound is a cost effective, feature packed
digital radiation monitor that is simple and easy to use.
Count rate is displayed in large clear numbers and also on a bar scale.
Our smart averaging software means a steady display that can be
read with confidence, yet provides a fast response.
For source finding, one button push changes the display
to a histogram plot. Alpha and Beta/Gamma counts can
be displayed separately or on the same screen.
For surveying operations the Radhound
also has an integrator mode.
• Clear digital LCD display with backlight.
• GM and scintillation detector options.
• Scaler timer function.
• Ergonomic tilt stand.

This feature-packed instrument boasts some unique features,
such as the ability to switch between probes via the menu
allowing, for example, a dose rate probe and a contamination
probe to be configured for use with one instrument. This
flexibility allows any standard probe to be used (300 - 1200 V).

the detector, the user then speaks his/her name and says
‘continue’ to begin the process. The system will then begin
counting for a predetermined period which can be set
by the supervisor.
A touchscreen interface is also incorporated to allow
configuration and manual triggering if needed.
