The gamma-radiation survey dosimeter“Rhythm -1M”
Dosimeter “Rhythm -1M” has successfully passed the State acceptance tests and entered into register No Y 1546-01 of measuring equipment admitted for use in Ukraine.
The instrument has a wide range of advantages:
  • The combination in one instrument of survey and dosimetric functions;
  • High sensitivity and the ability to measure small values of power of equivalent dose - "Rhythtm-1M" is the first in Ukraine instrument certified in range of 0.01 µSv/hr (1µR/hr);
  • The possibility of quick measurements and quick survey - setting time and time of response to the anomaly makes up 0.5 seconds;
  • Accurate measurements and detection of small anomalies with time of filter 50 second;
  • Audible signalling with a pitch of tone depending on the radiation power - in all ranges of instrument operation;
  • Using a miniature headset in noisy environments;
  • High contrast and considerable size of backlit display (digit height - 12.7 mm);
  • Battery power with a quick charger;
  • Small weight and dimensions;
The dosimeter is used:
  • In liquidation of radiation accidents;
  • For goods and vehicles control at the state border;
  • For radiation control of construction objects, scrap metal and other products;
  • For organization of the continuous monitoring of the radiation situation at the checkpoints and in systems of radiation safety of especially important objects;
  • For pedestrian and automobile gamma survey in geological mapping;
  • For dosimetric environmental monitoring;
  • In radiation control services of administrations of environmental control, scientific, industrial and other institutions and organizations;
  • At the enterprises of sphere of radioactive waste management and nuclear power engineering;
  • For radiation control in case of carrying out of activities in sphere of using nuclear energy.
Operational experience of these instruments has shown high efficiency of survey mode , speed and accuracy of dosimetry mode. With the help of instrument "Rhythm 1" there are detected radiation dirty pieces of scrap, radioactive spots, lost sources of ionizing radiation and other radiation-hazardous materials.
The delivery set of instrument includes the following: a measuring unit with digital display and backlight, the detection unit with a protective cover, grip detector, headset, Ni-MH rechargeable batteries, unit of power supply and battery charger, a bag for measuring unit, container, set of operational documentation.

Using the new device for control of radiation purity of goods enables to improve significantly production capacity due to high sensitivity and speed of measurement. For the rapid detection of radiation contamination, you can perform control "on- the -fly" with measurement time of 0.5 seconds. You can estimate the radiological purity of food and construction materials for a measurement time of 50 seconds. In new instrument is implemented convenient and efficient searching mode with accompanying sound. The pitch of the sound increases with the dose rate and the search may be conducted without looking at the display and without losing land navigation. In noisy environments there is used miniature headset, which can be worn under a cap (in cold weather or for covert surveillance). At night, LED backlit of a digital liquid crystal display is used. LCD is sufficiently contrast and easy to read in any light and temperature.скачать dle 12.0
