Radiation Alert® / Digital Radiation Detector Comparison Posted on March 29, 2018May 7, 2018 The Radiation Alert@ Ranger and Ranger EXP share the same operating ranges and offer a fast response with the larger tube, as well and a greater sensitivity to alphas with the larger end window. The Monitor 200 has a smaller end window, still has the ability to detect alpha and affords a little more ruggedness. The Monitor 1000EC has a linear response and a higher ranger with its energy compensated tube.
