The advanced PENs are direct reading radiation dosimeters. They are rugged, precision instruments with a higher quality and reliability than other dosimeters of its type. They measure and directly read accumulated dose of gamma and x-ray exposure.
Radiation dosimeter is a sturdy metal clip attaches the dosimeter to a pocket or any object to monitor total radiation exposure. They are hermetically sealed and immersion proof. PEN dosimeters are designed to satisfy military specifications for the RADIAC METER IM-264/PD and ANSI N 13.5 and N322 requirements.
The radiation dosimeter detects the accurate measurement of radiation that you have been exposed to.
±10% maximum change in sensitivity for x and gamma ray energies from 16 keV to 6 MeV.
In the absence of radiation, the dosimeters leakage or self discharge is less than 0.5% of full scale in 24 hours at 50° C. At 20° C dosimeters will read background radiation. After gross over exposure totaling up to 2000 R, the leakage is less than 5% of full scale in 48 hours at 20° C. Thereafter, the leakage will decrease to original values.
±10% of true dose for Cs-137 or Co-60 gamma.
Dosimeters are capable of being charged to “zero” with 140 to 195 volts.
A maximum change in sensitivity of ±10% may occur under any probable combination of the following:
A) Temperature range below -20°C (-4°F) or above +50°C (122°F)
B) Greater than 50,000 foot altitude for one month
C) Relative humidity greater than 95% Highly resistant to shock and vibration.
Radiation dosimeter are dose rate independent
