The RADOS RAD-60 Personal Alarm Dosimeter is a precise and reliable instrument for ensuring the personal safety of the user. Ideally, the RAD-60 is used in everyday radiation monitoring, in stand-alone conditions. If your needs grow for a more sophisticated system, the versatile RAD-60 can also be integrated into an Access Control System. The RAD-60 can be switched into System Mode, for the purpose of tracking Personnel Dose records and generating compliance reports.
The design includes state-of-the-art technology with built in memory for retrieving dose, even during power-down. It eliminates outside interference from shock and RF. The RAD-60 is easily programmed by the user, has a digital display, and operates with a single AAA alkaline battery.
With the push of a button, you can turn the unit on/off, change the digital display to read dose or dose rate, select from several dose and dose rate alarm levels, turn the chirp functionon/off, reset the integrated dose, and perform battery tests. The large digital display gives instant dose or dose rate readings and the audible alarm is loud (>85dba) RAD-60 Quick Specs PDF

State of the Art Software for keeping accurate dose records during an event. ACS Express is a state-of-the-art Windows-based Access Control System providing logging and personnel control for restricted area entries and exits. Designed exclusively for use by Emergency Responders. Load the software on a laptop, hook up an ADR-1 Reader and your ready to implement the system in minutes. Provides dose records and ingress/egress controls to track personnel in radiation areas.
The MJW ACS Express system provides for log-in/log-out of personnel using an identification bar-code. RWP capabilities, personnel records, and other various administrative modules are provided to facilitate this function, as described below. The ACS Express system is designed top down to be fully functional, comprehensive, flexible and robust. ACS Express is a multi-threaded application that is immediately responsive to user and hardware events. The software design and implementation provides the ability for it to be adjusted to varying hardware configurations and site-specific requirements/specifications without the need for changes to the program code. Each workstation is easily customized. Software utilities are provided that enable the administrator to select key settings based on the policies of the customer and the hardware in use at the workstation. Data entry at the login workstation can be via numeric keypad, bar code scanner, or magnetic strip reader.
ACS Express is provided with a Microsoft SQL Server™ database that runs within the Microsoft Data Engine (MSDE™). ACS Express is designed for single workstation use, and can be upgraded to the networked enterprise version, ACS Enterprise. Interfacing to the database is performed utilizing Open Database Connectivity (ODBC) drivers. Transaction processing protects all interactions with the database, ensuring the integrity of the data in the database.
