Geiger Counter, Portable
Measure Radiation Anywhere!
This low cost portable Geiger counter instantly measures levels of harmful beta, gamma, and X-ray radiations on its compressed dual scale meter.
It features a range of 0–100 uSv/Hr and 0–10 mR/Hr (logarithmic).
The DX-1 instantly indicate levels of Beta, Gamma, and X-Ray radiation by audible clicks from an internal speaker and by the compressed-scale meter. At higher radiation levels the speaker beeps, indicating elevated radiation levels. The beeping will begin above 10 mR/hr, intervals between beeps decreasing in relation to field strength, becoming a continuous alerting tone above 20 mR/hr. The DX-2 is useful for measuring higher levels (compacting several ranges into one scale) and features the ability to be recalibrated via a backside adjustment screw.
A single push button activates the DX-1 and DX-2 only when needed, conserving battery power. An LED indicator alerts you of battery condition upon each use. Applications for the units are many and may include checking for environmental contamination, industrial, clinical, field school classroom, home use, or wherever radioactive materials are present. Perfect for rock and mineral enthusiasts for its simplicity and convenience in identifying naturally radioactive rocks and ores, or for workers handling radioactive minerals, metals, and isotopes who are concerned about unknowingly bringing home contamination on their clothes and shoes.
The device measures 6" x 3" x 1.37" and operates on 1 9V battery (included).
All Geiger counters sold here are for educational purposes only. They will measure different types of radiation including alpha, beta, gamma, and X-rays, but they should not be used for any health, safety or medical purposes, or to determine a human being's safety in an area that is suspected of radiation exposure.
Our Geiger counters will detect different types of radiation, but unless you know how to properly calibrate them and interpret the data, these Geiger counters should not be used to determine safe or unsafe levels of radiation exposure.
