The Monitor 200 measures alpha, beta, gamma, and x-rays. Its digital display shows readings in your choice of CPM, CPS, μSv/hr, mR/hr, or in accumulated counts. It has a digital, easy to read backlit display, a red count light, and a beeper that sounds with each count detected. This unit also includes an adjustable timer and a loud, customizable alert.
With the Free Radiation Alert Observer BLE app from the Google App Store, you can display the readings from your detector, label sample readings and descriptions, take timed counts, append GPS data and send your saved survey file. Alarms set on the instrument will also activate on your Android device.
The Free Observer USB software (Windows® only) reads in Total Counts, CPM, µR/hr, mR/hr, CPS, µSv/hr, and has the ability to collect and log data, set alarms, set timed counts, set the calibration date and settings, and generate reports.
Applications & Uses: Checking accelerator & x-ray shielding for leakage, industrial gauges containing Cesium-137, Locating Sources, Personal protection, General surveying

1070 CPM/mR/hr referenced to Cs137
Detects alpha down to 2.5 MeV; typical detection efficiency at 3.6 MeV is greater than 80%.
Detects beta at 50 keV with typical 35% detection efficiency.
Detects beta at 150 keV with typical 75% detection efficiency.
Detects gamma and x-rays down to 10 keV typical through the window, 40 keV minimum through the case.
