The STS 6150ADK probe is a large area probe, 150mm wide, and 200mm long. It differs from other STS probes, in that it is self contained detection and interface unit, and can therefore be connected direct to real ratemeters. It contains a six cell MN1500 battery pack which this gives about 10 hours of operation.
The probe is designed to replicate the particular properties of radioactive surface contamination in that the simulant is designed to stay close to the surface being monitored, to be invisible to the naked eye and to remain sufficiently long for the training session to be completed.
The system is excellent for demonstration the monitoring of radioactive cross contamination, stategically applied to touch points in a working area the simulant can be traced spreading from worker to surface, instrument, clothing and other workers.
The simulant will entirely evaporate within 24hrs leaving the training area clean and "uncontaminated" for the next users.
Realistic radiation training is an essential part of all nuclear workers, emergency response teams and security services training and the benefit of training with "life like" radiation simulators should not be underestimated.
The ADK is compatible with the range of 6150AD instruments.
