RADIATION PAGER®-S

The Radiation Pager-S is a hand-held radiation detector designed for trained security forces and emergency responders. The Radiation Pager-S is a more sophisticated version of the original Radiation Pager. The Pager-S is the most sensitive radiation detector for its size commercially available and is hundreds of times more sensitive than Geiger-Muller (GM) detectors of similar size. The sensitivity and small size of the Radiation Pager-S is made possible by the combination of a new miniature photomultiplier tube and a scintillation crystal.

The Radiation Pager-S is approximately the size of a message pager and can be worn on a belt or carried in a pocket. When the Radiation Pager-S detects x-rays or gamma rays at levels above a measured background, the Pager-S quickly alerts the operator by either sounding an alarm or vibrating, and lighting a single digit LED. The operator can easily locate the radiation source using the duty-cycle based audio alarm or vibration, and the single digit LED.

The Radiation Pager-S is designed for operators who need to quickly and discreetly detect and locate a radiation threat in an unpredictable radiation background. The Radiation Pager-S is easy to use. Operators can be trained in proficient use of the instrument in one hour. The Radiation Pager-S is designed to withstand the rigors of daily use. The Radiation Pager-S operates continuously for over two months on two AA alkaline batteries.
