The Go Direct Radiation Monitor detects alpha, beta, gamma, and X-ray radiation. It directly connects wirelessly via Bluetooth® or wired via USB to your platform.
Use the Go Direct Radiation Monitor to explore radiation statistics, measure the rate of nuclear decay, and monitor radon progeny. This easy-to-use sensor consists of a Geiger-Mueller tube mounted in a small, rugged, plastic case. A thin window protected by a metal screen allows alpha radiation to be detected, along with beta and gamma. Each new detection is indicated by a flashing red LED indicator and can also be accompanied by an optional audio signal.
The Go Direct Radiation Monitor can be used in a variety of experiments:
- Determine the half-life of an isotope.
- Investigate radiation shielding.
- Detect background radiation sources.
- Sensor: LND 712 (or equivalent) halogen-quenched GM tube with a mica end window, 1.5 to 2.0 mg/cm2 thick
