The FLIR identiFINDER R500 is the most sensitive radio-isotope identification device (RIID) available and is capable of rapidly locating and identifying radioactive material in difficult monitoring scenarios. Like other identiFINDER R-series products, the R500 contains on-board Bluetooth, web server, and GPS technologies. It produces rapid alerts that expedite response measures and enable field operators to make a next step determination. The common operating interface and template matching technology provides immediate comfort and confidence when using the device. The additional detector volume allows the R500 to identify radioactive material where other instruments cannot. When large areas need to be screened rapidly or there is potential for shielding, as in truck and cargo scanning, the identiFINDER R500 provides superior sensitivity and performance compared to other RIID devices.
