ALPHA-7A Air Monitor is designed to provide early warning to workers exposed to airborne releases of alpha-emitting radionuclides.
Modern, PC-based continuous air monitor provides faster, more powerful algorithms for the identification and quantification of airborne releases of alpha-emitting radionuclides, primarily transuranics such as 238Pu and 239Pu.
The ALPHA-7A has adjustable alarms, at both DAC and DAC-hour levels, to rapidly warn workers of potentially dangerous releases. In addition to monitoring work areas, it is also an excellent solution for monitoring stacks and ducts.
- Can serve as a stand-alone CAM or be incorporated into Ethernet-based network
- Simultaneously monitors up to 8 isotopes
- Advanced peakshape algorithms; calculates isotopic activity by mapping peaks rather than using regions of interest (ROI)
- Alpha-spectral data updated every second
- Concentration, dose, and activity alarms
- Pentium-class PC-based, Windows 2000 operating system
- Removable filter holder cartridge
- High-speed connections via 10-base T Ethernet connection
- 4 to 20mA analog input and output capacity
- High-visibility display for status and messages
- New isotopes easily added from library using any ODBC database manager
- Automatic gain control based on naturally occurring peaks
- Tracks alpha-emitting daughter products
- Full-featured, Windows-based client software presents graphical displays of spectrum and status to any networked or local PC
Two detector designs:
- Radial entry head for ambient air monitoring
- Inline head for process or stack monitoring applications
- Either head may be used remotely from the central display and control unit
