• Radiation Alert® Monitor 4

    Easy to use, great general purpose radiation detector for a wide array of applications. The Monitor 4 Family of radiation detectors has been put to the test by decades of use in numerous industries.

Monitor 4 & 4EC / Analog Radiation Detector - a ß y x

Monitor 4

Detector

Monitor 4:
Halogen-quenched uncompensated GM tube with thin mica window 1.5-2.0 mg/cm2 thick.
Effective diameter of window is 9.1 mm (.36 in.).
Monitor 4EC:
Halogen-quenched GM tube, energy compensated sidewall 2mm thin filter. Thin mica window 1.5-2.0 mg/cm2 thick. Effective diameter of window is 9.1 mm (.36 in.).

Operating Range

0-.5, 0-5, 0-50 mR/hr 0-500, 0-5,000, 0-50,000 CPM or 0-5, 0-50, 0-500 μSv/hr (SI Scale Meter Option)

Energy Sensitivity

1000 CPM/mR/hr (Cs137). M4EC is the same as M4 except the energy response for gamma and x-rays through the detector sidewall is flat within +61% or -26% over the range of 40 keV to 100 keV, and within +35% or -17% over the range of 100 keV to 1.3 MeV. M4 & M4EC meter scales shown below.
Both Detect beta at 50 keV with typical 35% detection efficiency and beta at 150 keV with typical 75% detection efficiency.

Accuracy

Typically ±15% of reading (Cs137)

Energy Response Curve
Energy Response Curve
Monitor 4: Detects alpha down to 2.5 MeV; typical detection efficiency at 3.6 MeV is greater than 80%. Detects gamma and x-rays down to 10 keV typical through the window, 40 keV minimum through the case. Monitor 4EC: Detects alpha down to 2.5 MeV; typical detection efficiency at 3.6 MeV is greater than 80%. Detects gamma and x-rays down to 10 keV typical through the window (non-compensated), 40 keV through the sidewall.

Frequently Asked Questions about the Monitor 4 & Monitor 4EC


What are the differences between the Original Monitor 4 and the new ergonomic Monitor 4 models?

Both models share the same specifications of operating range, meter face, count light and audio clicks, however the new ergonomic Monitor 4 comes with a standard 3.5mm pulse output jack where as with the original Monitor 4 that option was a special order item. The new Monitor 4 and Monitor 4EC also comes with a mini USB and Observer USB Software option.

Are there any efficiencies available for the Monitor 4?

The two efficiencies we have on file are:

Radium 226 @ 1 CM - %0.575

Cobalt 57 @ 1 CM - %0.017
