Radiation Detectors

Oct 19

A radiation detector is an instrument that detects nuclear, electromagnetic, or light radiation. The emission of ionizing radiation such as alpha particles, beta particles, and gamma rays is measured by a nuclear radiation detector to identify nuclear radiation. A nuclear radiation detector, often known as a geiger counter, is made up of two basic components: processing electronics and a geiger tube. Low-pressure inert gases such as helium, argon, or neon are used to fill the geiger tube. The inert gas is ionized when radioactive radiation is present. Within the geiger tube, an anode counts the number of ionized particles, which is quantitatively related to the strength of the radioactive radiation. The geiger counter's or nuclear radiation detector's LCD screen then displays the radioactivity measurement.

The ability to measure nuclear radioactivity and classify nuclear radioactivity values is critical. In the case of terrestrial gamma radiation, general values range from 0.03 to 0.3 Sv/h (microsievert per hour). Natural radioactive materials in the ground, such as uranium and potassium, condition this "normal" oscillation range. This factor must be calculated while taking into account cosmic radiation. When it comes to cosmic radiation, for example, the maximum radioactivity level at Schneefernerhaus, Germany's highest-located environmental research station, is around 110 Sv/h. To assist you measure radioactivity, PCE Instruments offers three types of geiger counters or nuclear radiation detection devices: 1) alpha radioactivity meters, 2) meters for detecting alpha, beta, and gamma radioactivity, and 3) body-worn radioactivity meters.


PCE-EMF 823 Electromagnetic Radiation Detector

The PCE-EMF 823 is a single-axis electromagnetic radiation detector or Gauss meter that may be carried around and used to measure electromagnetic fields (EMFs). This easy-to-use EMF meter is great for determining the hazards of exposure to electromagnetic radiation released by power lines, household appliances, and industrial equipment.


PCE-UV34 UVA/UVB Radiation Detector

Radiation Detector PCE-UV34 uses an external sensor to measure UV radiation.

  • UV-correcting filter on external sensor - Auto after 10 minutes of idleness to save battery power
  • Large LCD - Minimum, Maximum, and Data Hold functions - 0.000 to 1.999 mW/cm2 or 0.000 to 19.9 W/m2 - 1.999 to 19.99 mW/cm2 or 19.99 to 199.9 W/m2 - 1.999 to 19.99 mW/cm2 or 19.99 to 199.9 W/m2 - 1.999 to 19.99 mW/cm2 or 19.99 to 199.9 W


PCE-EM 29 Electromagnetic Radiation Detector

The PCE-EM 29 is a portable handheld electromagnetic radiation detector featuring a three-dimensional (3D) isotropic spherical triaxial (3-axis) sensor for measuring electromagnetic fields (EMFs) and radio frequencies (RFs). This battery-powered RF meter has a big 4-digit LCD display and an adjustable value limit with sound alarm function.

  • Measures EMF of 5G cellular Low-band and Mid-band - Frequency range: 50 MHz to 3.5 GHz
  • Accuracy: 1.0 dB (50 MHz to 1.9 GHz), 2.4 dB (2.4 GHz) - Measurement range: 38 mV/m to 11 V/m (1.9 GHz to 3.5 GHz)
  • Units are displayed in mV/m, V/m, gA/m, mA/m, gW/m2, or mW/m2.
  • Stores up to 99 measurements in memory and calculates the average value.
