The growing market demand and customer expectations are the reason that SARAD designed and developed the new radon detection monitor for high-precision reference measurements.
The Radon Scout eXpert offers an outstanding sensitivity of 25 cpm/(kBq/m³). Moreover, due to the unique detector technology, the instrument will not be affected by any variations in temperature and humidity, external radiation, mechanical shocks, and vibrations. The new radon monitor comes with a well-established SARAD communication protocol, which allows data transfer with the proprietary software (Radon Vision V8 and higher) or integration within an existing infrastructure. Not only a USB interface but also relay output and Wi-Fi connection are provided. For easy use of the device, it is equipped with display and control buttons. Direct start/stop and measurement evaluation without the need for external control unit like a PC. LEDs indicators provide information about Radon threshold violation, battery, and measurement status. Internal calculation routines allow not only to display the actual and average radon values, but also the estimated dose. Due to its high sensitivity, Radon Scout eXpert can be used as a reference instrument in calibration labs or science facilities and also as a supreme measurement unit at places where quick and reliable Radon assessment is required, whether in Bq or MBq range.
The device works with a simple 5V power supply or two AA-batteries which are integrated and continue the measurement also in case of power shortage or time-limited mobile usage. All measurement results will be stored locally in non-volatile circular memory. Sensors for temperature and humidity are integrated as a standard. The CO2 or barometric pressure sensor can be equipped as an option.
The Radon Scout eXpert comes with a calibration certificate according to DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025:2018 from SARAD DAkkS-accredited laboratory.
A standard calibration is performed at a radon concentration of 3 000 Bq/m³, with the prior determination of the background effect. A second calibration point at a radon concentration of 300 Bq/m³ is possible on demand and at additional cost. A separate calibration certificate is created for each calibration point.
The entire instrument is designed, manufactured, and calibrated in our company’s location in Dresden/ Germany.
