RDS-30™ Radiation Survey Meter


RDS-30™ Radiation Survey Meter


The RDS-30 unit is a Digital Handheld Dose Rate Meter designed for a wide range of applications involving a possibility for abnormal radiation levels. Compact, lightweight, waterproof, its performance and its friendly user interface make the RDS-30 meter perfectly suited to radiation survey in field conditions, in nuclear industry and for protection against radiological hazards by personnel, who may be exposed to gamma and/or X-ray radiation in their work.

RDS-30 meter is microprocessor controlled. The user interface consists of one push button and an easy-to-use menu structure that displays information on the LCD of the meter. The six digit display shows the dose rate and various messages. Different alarm situations are indicated by a combination of audio-visual effects on the LCD and a buzzer (dose rate, dose, low battery, defect, dose rate overflow).

RDS-30 meter provides user configurable (with RDS-CSW) list of alarm levels for dose and dose rate. Fixed or multi-level alarm options. It is possible to store dose rate values in the histogram memory for later analysis of the readings.

The use of RDS-CSW software is required for downloading the data to a PC via IrDA port.
