The radon monitor Radon Scout offers the highest sensitivity of its class and exceeds the one of the competitors many times. This will result in the lowest detection limit and statistical error (application note 'Measurement principal – Statistics – Test planning') . The thousands of times proven and US-EPA certified instrument will show the time distribution of Radon even at levels below 100Bq/m³. Thus, meteorological influences as well as ventilation effects can be easily detected.
Two standard D-size cells enable an autonomous operation over a few month. The radon monitor Radon Scout PLUS offers an additional connection for an external power supply. In fact, this allows an operation over infinite time periods.
The size of the data memory was designed to get a high-resolution time distribution. Any number of measurement series may be created. The acquired data can be loaded by a PC even if a measurement is in progress. The instrument can be directly connected to a modem (analogue, ISDN, GSM) for remote data transmission. The Radon Vision software (included in delivery) handles the telephone connection as simple as a direct cable link.
Because of the high sensitivity, variations of the activity concentration will detected accurately even in case of low Radon levels. The radon monitor works in diffusion mode so that a possible influence of Thoron can be excluded. The measurement chamber, equipped with a semiconductor detector and high voltage collection, shows no sensitivity against ambient humidity.
Sensors for temperature and humidity (barometric pressure in addition in case of the radon monitor Radon Scout PLUS) are very useful add-ons. The integrated tilt detector will give a signal if the instrument was moved from its original position during the measurement.
