The Ranger EXP is a high performance, durable, lightweight radiation detector for field use or in your facility. This Radiation detector is designed specifically for individuals operating in tough environments. The small, handheld Geiger counter offers excellent sensitivity to NORM and low levels of alpha, beta, gamma, and x-rays. The digital readout is displayed with a red count light and a beeper sounds with each count detected. Other features include an adjustable timer, selectable alert, and with the free Observer USB Software Family, you can download your collected data, and set alarms!
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: Surveying for NORM (Naturally Occurring Radioactive Material) contamination, Contamination surveys of packages, equipment, people, etc., Regulatory inspections, Scrap Metal Screening, Low energy radionuclide detection.
Here, are some features of the radiation detector device that is worth mentioning. RAP-RS2 Probe – External Probe Halogen-quenched, uncompensated GM tube with thin mica window, 1.4-2.0 mg/cm2 areal density. Effective diameter of window is 45 mm (1.75 in.).
mR/hr – .001 (1µR) to 100
CPM – 0 to 350,000
µSv/hr – .01 to 1000
CPS – 0 to 5000
Total Counts- 1 to 9,999,000 counts
Detects Alpha down to 2 MeV. Detects Beta down to .16 MeV; typical detection efficiency at 1 MeV is approx. 25%. Detects Gamma down to 10 KeV through the detector window. 3340 CPM/mR/hr (137Cs). Smallest detectable level for 125I is .02 µCi at contact.
Sulfur (35S), Strontium (90Sr/y), Cesium (137Cs), Phosphorus (32P), Carbon (14C), Iodine (131I), Cobalt (60Co), and Alpha

Typically ±15% from factory, ±10% with NIST Source Calibration NIST Calibration Additional
Selectable Alert Settings
mR/hr .001 – 100 and CPM 1 – 350,000. 70db @ 1m. Pulsating beeper sounds the alert. Adjustable alert levels are used for mR/hr / CPM, and µSv/hr / CPS. Alarm will sound when in Timer Mode when set alarm threshold is reached.
Meter will hold at OVER RANGE in fields as high as 100 times the maximum reading.
Included with Ranger EXP
This Radiation detector display updates every 3 seconds. At low background levels, the update is the average for the past 30-second time period. The timed period for the average decreases as the radiation level increases.
