Press Release Summary:
With DX-1 meter, elevated radiation levels are indicated by beeps, beginning above 10 mR/hr, and decreasing in interval to become continuous above 20 mR/hr. Able to be recalibrated via backside adjustment screw, DX-2 compacts several ranges into one scale for measuring higher levels of radiation. Both devices feature single pushbutton for activation, LED indicator for battery, internal speaker, and compressed-scale meter. They support many applications.
Original Press Release:
Hand Held Radiation Meters DX-1 and DX-2 Test for Beta Levels, Gamma Levels, and X-Ray Radiation
The DX-1 & DX-2 hand held radiation meters instantly indicate levels of Beta, Gamma, and X-Ray radiation by audible clicks from an internal speaker and by the compressed-scale meter. The DX-1 has an added feature: at higher radiation levels the speaker beeps, indicating elevated radiation levels. The beeping will begin above 10 mR/hr, intervals between beeps decreasing in relation to field strength, becoming a continuous alerting tone above 20 mR/hr. The DX-2 is useful for measuring higher levels (compacting several ranges into one scale) and features the ability to be recalibrated via a backside adjustment screw.
A single pushbutton activates the DX-1 and DX-2 only when needed, conserving battery power. An LED indicator alerts you of battery condition upon each use. Applications for the units are many and may include checking for environmental contamination, industrial, clinical, field, school classroom, home use, or wherever radioactive materials are present. Perfect for rock and mineral enthusiasts for its simplicity and convenience in identifying naturally radioactive rocks and ores, or for workers handling radioactive minerals, metals, and isotopes who are concerned about unknowingly bringing home contamination on their clothes and shoes.
With the increasing concern over the quality of products supplied to consumers coupled with advances in research determining health effects of pollutants and treatment chemicals in the environment the demand for fast, accurate, and reliable test kits has continued to rise since the mid 1980's. During this time ITS recognized this concern and developed safe, easy to use, quality test kits centered around four key manufacturing concepts: Quality, Simplicity, Value and Service
