* Simple conversion from µR to µSv. You divide µR by 100 to get µSv.
* Example: The Model 500VBR displays 123456 µR is the same as 1234.56 µSv.

For use by Emergency Response Teams  for Nuclear Decontamination Control and Protection.
Aids in the search for Unauthorized Nuclear Devices.

The Rad*Scanner Model 500VBR is a small, portable nuclear radiation monitor designed to industrial standards providing a personal alert to nuclear contamination. The Rad*Scanner Model 500 will give an alarm if the normal background radiation level should rise and conveniently show the total nuclear radiation exposure on a six digit Liquid Crystal Display.

* Simple conversion from µR to µSv. You divide µR by 100 to get µSv.
* Example: The Model 500VBR displays 123456 µR is the same as 1234.56 µSv.

The RAD SCANNER Model 500VBR will give you an immediate reading of radioactivity in medical facilities, laboratories, power plants, emergency rescue sites, scrap metal processors, oil field and pipeline equipment outfits and environmental testing laboratories. Providing real-time personal radiation exposure rate levels with a lightweight package, the RAD*SCANNER responds to alpha and beta particles, gamma photons and X-rays using a shock-mounted, gas filled detector built to highest industrial qualifications.

Our tube manufacturer employs quality control programs modeled after the following programs: MIL-E-1, MIL-Q-9858A, Appendix B of 10CFR50, NASA NP200-3 and ISO 9000. Our tube manufacturer has developed a proprietary computer testing system where every detector manufactured goes through a computer generated, real life operational simulation, and the performance specifications for the unit are actually produced. This assures the customer that the detector will meet or exceed the performance specification required for the application.

The RadScanner Model 500VBR is factory set to the maximum allowable average value set by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, the RAD SCANNER Model 500 will run in excess of two months on a single 9 volt alkaline battery. The RAD SCANNER responds with visible and audible indicators. The durable ABS package with a belt clip weighs less than 5 oz (125 grams) with battery. Dimensions are 4.15" x 2.4" x 0.85" x (105mm x 61mm x 22mm).
