NEW! Optional energy calibration for Po-210 background rejection is available.
NEW! Radon Scout and Radon Scout PLUS now with switch output for ventilation control!
The Radon detector Radon Scout from SARAD GmbH offers the highest sensitivity of its class and exceeds one of the competitors many times. This will result in the lowest detection limit and statistical error. The thousands of times proven and US-EPA certified radon monitor will show the time distribution of Radon even at levels below 100Bq/m³. Thus, meteorological influences, as well as ventilation effects, can be easily detected.
Due to the outstanding sensitivity, the radon detector is perfectly suitable for direct controlling of ventilation equipment by a potential-free switch contact. As an accessory, we offer a wireless switch that can be directly connected to the monitor. Thus, very little effort is required to control fans such as kitchen hoods, walls, or window ventilators anywhere in your home. It is possible to upgrade even older instruments. The switching threshold for the Radon Scout is fixed to the EU target value of 300Bq/m³, while the Radon Scout PLUS allows user-specific settings.
Two standard D-size cells enable an autonomous operation of the radon detector Radon Scout over a few months.
The size of the data memory was designed to get a high-resolution time distribution. Any number of measurement series may be created. The acquired data can be loaded by a PC even if a measurement is in progress. The Radon detector can be directly connected to a modem (analog, ISDN, GSM) for remote data transmission.
The Radon Vision software (included in delivery) handles the telephone connection as simple as a direct cable link.
Because of the high sensitivity, variations of the activity concentration will be detected accurately even in the case of low Radon levels. The radon monitor Radon Scout works in diffusion mode so that a possible influence of Thoron can be excluded. The measurement chamber, equipped with a semiconductor detector and high voltage collection, shows no sensitivity against ambient humidity.
Sensors for temperature and humidity (barometric pressure in addition in case of radon monitor Radon Scout PLUS) are very useful add-ons. The integrated tilt detector will give a signal if the Radon monitor was moved from its original position during the measurement.
The Radon detector comes with the DAkkS-accredited calibration certificate according to the DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025:2018 and the latest release of the Radon Vision software.
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 Instrument has been certified by the US-EPA / NRSB and other international authorities
