Miniature “talking” dosimeter-radiometer – MKS-02CA1.


Features of the radiometer
Main technical characteristics

By its technical characteristics the ISS-02СА1 fully satisfies the requirements of the instructions of Central Bank RF №131-I from 04.12.2007.
He was awarded a Gold medal and a Diploma of the International Exhibition MetrolExpo 2010»

The instrument has been registered in State register of instrumentation under №44592-10. Certificate of approving the type of measuring RU.C.38.050.A №40219 from 08.08.2010г.
MKC-02CA1 – a professional «speaking» small  personal dosimeter-radiometer, intended for measuring of the ambient dose and the ambient dose rate of the photon (gamma- and X-ray) radiation, for measuring of beta-particles flux density and for evaluation of alpha-particles flux density from contaminated surfaces and  for indication of the flow of ionizing particles , having the opportunity to work with a PC and remote detection units.Operation manual >>> [load]Download Dosimeter MKS-02SA1 Simulator

    • a wide range of measuring the dose rate of gamma – (x-ray) radiation

(from 0.1 mSv/h up to 0.2 Sv/h);

  • small dimensions and weight;
  • voice dubbing and voice evaluation of the results of measurements of dose rate of gamma – radiation;
  • audible and visual alarm radiation intensity;
  • simultaneous display with backlight name of the mode of operation, results and units of measurement, current statistical error and analogue scale, the maximum value of which is determined by the established threshold alarm measured value;
  • fast change of instrument readings when statistically significant change of the intensity of the radiation;
  • tone sound signaling when exceeding a user-defined threshold dose, dose or beta – particles flux density;
  • storage in non-volatile memory of up to 2000 of the measurement results with the date and time of holding;
  • possibility of data exchange with a PC (via USB port).

The area of application of the radiometer

  • civil defense and emergency situations
  • service of radiation monitoring at nuclear power plants, industrial enterprises and medical radiological institutions
    customs services
  • the search for sources of ionizing radiation
  • detection of radioactive contamination of banknotes and their packages
