Radiation measurement often requires different devices for varying applications, adding to the cost and complexity of data collection. To that end, Everett, Wash.-based Fluke Biomedical has unveiled the RaySafe 452 Survey Meter, which reduces the number of devices technicians need to carry, learn, and calibrate.
Specifically, the 452 Survey Meter measures radiation in a wide variety of applications, including wall leakage, scatted radiation in a room, tube leakage, nuclear medicine, and control of treated patients. The meter helps technicians:

  • Make data collection accurately and easily with fast response times
  • Detect variations from background radiation levels, due to its sensitivity
  • Trust the readings without post-processing of the data, due to a flat, wide energy response range
  • Save data and analyze it later, with the automatic saving of dose rate values every second

Moreover, the RaySafe 452 offers a large display with all the parameters in a single, backlit display. Its ergonomic and lightweight design makes it easy to hold, carry, and use even over extended periods of time. And it has an IP 64 rating, so it can be cleaned with water without damaging the device.

Further, the survey meter comes with RaySafe View software that makes it easy to transfer data to a PC and log data. Also, all data is time stamped and dose rate waveforms can be further analyzed later.
