The potential threat of a radiological terrorism incident requires that first responders are equipped with a radiation monitor that is designed to address the radiation hazards they may face. CANBERRA’s UltraRadiac-Plus is the perfect unit for firefighters, HAZMAT teams, paramedics and other first responders. It offers the small size and light weight needed to avoid interference with the critical work of first responders while providing continually updated information to the wearer.
Most electronic dosimeters on the market were intended for laboratory use, and not for the rugged environments that first responders may encounter. CANBERRA’s UltraRadiac-Plus – based on a US Military design – is a small, rugged, simple to operate radiation monitor that displays both the radiation levels and the total dose that is received. A large, backlit LCD display ensures that the unit can be read in any light conditions. Alarms are annunciated by a flashing display, loud audible signal and vibration of the unit itself, when user set dose rate or total dose alarm levels are exceeded.
