DOSIMETER – RADIOMETER MKC-01СА1B

Dosimeter MKC-01СА1B  –  a miniature multifunctional domestic dosimeter-radiometer with every second continuous updating of readings result and indication of the current statistic error, as well as with the voice intonation and vocal evaluation of readings results, intended for :

  • evaluation of dose ambient equivalent rate of gamma- (X-rays) radiation;
  • evaluation of dose ambient equivalent of gamma- (X-rays) radiation;
  • evaluation of beta-particles flux density from contaminated surfaces;
  • evaluation of alpha-particles flux density;
  • survey of ionization radiation sources and on-line evaluation of radiation background;
  • evaluation of radon situation and radioactive contamination of foodstuff.

Distinctive features

    • voice reproduction of the results of measurements of gamma radiation dose rate and operational voice analysis of radiation situation: «NORMALLY» – with dose rate up to 60mcR/hour; «ATTENTION» – from 60 up to 120 mcR /hour; «DANGEROUS» – more 120 mcR /hour. For the convenience of the consumer voice reproduction of evidence is the old  units of measurement of dose  rate – microroentgen/hour, mr/hour;
    • ease of operation thanks to pocket size, availability of easily readable large two line alphanumeric liquid-crystal display with backlight and only two  control buttons;
    • simultaneous display of the result of the observation (gamma radiation dose rate or flux density of beta – and alpha – particles) and its current statistic error in confidence interval 0,95;
    • fast automated change of instrument readings when you change the radiation intensity by more than double mean square deviation of the measurement result (2?);
    • tone sound signaling when exceeding specified by the user thresholds of the dose rate, beta-particles flux density, integral dose and the upper limit of the range measurements;
    • memory of accumulated dose when changing the (absence of) elements of power for a long term (over 5 years);
    • long period of continuous work (more than 400 hours) from a single set of batteries;

display of current measurement units and a blinking symbol of the radiation intensity; alarm discharge of batteries.

Dosimeter-radiometer MKC-01СА1B allows to perform a quick search of contaminated objects or radioactive radiation sources, as well as monitor the human habitat (radiation safety of working places, habitation, locality; assessment of radioactive contamination of real objects, foodstuffs, materials and samples; evaluation of radon situation in inhabited and working premises, etc).

Voice reproduction and operational voice analysis of the results of the assessment of the radiation situation allow to increase significantly the ease of use of the MKC-01СА1B, as communities, as well as employees of different services.
