The STS Survey-Safe simulator is a simulated radiation survey meter designed to aid the tuition of workers in the nuclear industry in safe practices and in understanding the nature and mechanics of ionising radiation.
The instrument operates using an STS radio frequency detection head which detects the presence of a simulated radiation field with the resultant reading displayed on the LCD Display of the instrument.
The Survey-Safe simulated survey meter features a 65 x 35mm LCD backlit display with easy to operate gloved use buttons for selecting functions and instrument on/off.
The menu allows users to set various parameters for the instrument including alarm threshold, background rate, backlight and Audio options.
The Survey-Safe uses the Safe-MiniSource as the field generator and will measure the simulated dose according to the proximity and shielding between the dosimeter and source. The rate of accumulation is determined by the activity level set in the source. Different sources are available to characterise different isotopes and therefore produce a different response from the instrument in terms of dose at a given range.
The Survey-Safe runs off 2 standard AA cells giving an operation time of over 10hrs.
The Safe-Series of instruments offer the perfect solution for Radiation Emergency Training, Radiation Safety Training and RPA Training with simple intuitive controls, competitive pricing and low ongoing cost of ownership.
The STS Survey-Safe is not designed to be intrinsically safe and therefore should not be used in hazardous environments. The units are not waterproof and contain delicate and sensitive electronics which may be caused to fail if exposed to moisture. Units should be stored in a clean and dry environment, batteries should be removed if storing for more than 4 weeks.
Instrument response will be affected by environmental conditions such as the presence of large reflective surfaces, substantial metal structures and variable wall thicknesses.
