Model 26-1 Integrated Frisker


Model 26-1 Integrated Frisker


The Model 26-1 uses a time-tested GM detector in an ergonomically designed, ruggedly-constructed, and water-resistant housing using cable-less design. These features combine with other user-friendly functions such as a large LED display, automatic backlighting, and 3-button operation to make surveying personnel and objects into a simple operation. The Model 26-1 DOSE is a variant of the Model 26-1 with a removable energy compensation filter that flattens the energy response to facilitate measuring Ambient Equivalent Dose (Sv). 

The Model L-2002-1050 Ambient Dose Equivalent Filter simply snaps on the face of the Model 26-1 whenever dose measurements are desired. The filter is easily removed to allow the operator to continue with measuring contamination.

The Model 26 series may also be ordered with a standard 3 mm (1/8 in.) plug, mono headphone jack to better monitor the instrument's audible output in noisy environments (part number 4498-538). See more under the Options tab.

  • BACKLIGHT: built-in ambient light sensor automatically activates low-power LED backlight, or may be configured for ‘Continuous On’ operations (will reduce battery life)
  • CONTROLS: three pushbuttons
  • ON/OFF/QUIET: press to turn ON, tap to alternate between ‘click’ audio and QUIET, hold for OFF
  • MODE: select NORMAL (count rate), MAX (captures peak rate), or COUNTER (user-selectable count time from 0–20 minutes) •
  • UNITS: changes units from count rate (cpm, cps) to dose/exposure (µSv/h, mR/hr) to activity (dpm/Bq)
