MONITOR 4EC - Analog Radiation Detector
The Monitor 4EC is an energy compensated, ergonomic radiation survey meter capable of detecting alpha, beta, gamma, and x-rays over 3 selectable ranges.
Manufacturer part number:
The Monitor 4EC is an energy compensated, ergonomic radiation survey meter capable of detecting alpha, beta, gamma, and x-rays over 3 selectable ranges. This detector is great for getting a linear response to gamma and x-ray. A red count light flashes and a beep sounds with each event detected. The Monitor 4EC offers a linear response for gamma and x-rays (above 40 keV).
Halogen-quenched GM tube, energy compensated sidewall 2mm thin filter. Thin mica window 1.5-2.0 mg/cm2 thick. Effective diameter of window is 9.1 mm (.36 in.).

or 0-5, 0-50, 0-500 μSv/hr (SI Scale Meter Option)
1000 CPM/mR/hr (Cs137). Detects alpha down to 2.5 MeV; typical detection efficiency at 3.6 MeV is greater than 80%. Detects beta at 50 keV with typical 35% detection efficiency and beta at 150 keV with typical 75% detection efficiency. Detects gamma and x-rays down to 10 keV typical through the window (non-compensated), 40 keV through the sidewall.
