Radiation Alert® Ranger EXP
- Detecting and measuring surface contamination
- Monitoring possible radiation exposure while working with radionuclides
- Screening for environmental contamination
- Detecting noble gases and other low energy radionuclides
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

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.
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.
