GAMMA-SCOUT Geiger counters are known for their good workmanship, the impact-resistant plastic shell and their very precise measuring results due to the high-quality counting tube from LND. All GAMMA-SCOUT instruments can measure alpha, beta and gamma radiation and thus cover the entire spectrum of radioactive radiation. Since the counting tube is more sensitive than average, GAMMA-SCOUT radiation meters are suitable for measuring radioactivity:
in homes and offices
in floors, walls and other building materials
in clothing, vehicles or articles of daily use
in parcels and postal consignments during customs inspections
in logistics for all incoming goods
Highlights of the GAMMA-SCOUT Alert
Dose rate exceedance alert. If the radiation exceeds a limit set by the user, a warning signal sounds.
Exceeded dose alarm / dosimeter function: The GAMMA-SCOUT Alert gives an acoustic warning when a user-specified radiation dose is exceeded. Therefore, this radiation meter can also be used as a personal dosimeter.
Integrated ticker: The ticker of the GAMMA-SCOUT Alert converts each detected radiation pulse into a signal (Geiger counter effect). This audio signal facilitates the location of radiation Sources.
Further functions of the Geiger counter/dosimeter GAMMA-SCOUT
Simple measurement of radioactive radiation: In measuring mode, the current radiation value is shown on the LCD display every two seconds. The mean value (H) of the previous day is also briefly displayed.
Wide measuring range: The Geiger counter GAMMA-SCOUT measures reliably over a wide measuring range (0.01-5,000 µSv/h).
Tested calibration: Each GAMMA-SCOUT radiation meter is subjected to an intensive functional test before delivery and is individually calibrated. A certificate is enclosed.
Display of measured values: The measured values can be displayed in sievert or SEM.
Battery-saving continuous operation: The GAMMA-SCOUT collects measured values around the clock and stores them for later evaluation. The battery lasts up to 10 years thanks to the certified energy-saving concept.
Large data memory: The GAMMA-SCOUT radiation measuring device stores the registered pulses in its memory and keeps these measured values ready for you to read out later. Thanks to the large data memory, up to 32,000 measured values can be stored.
Data evaluation via Microsoft Windows or MAC OS X: The software for data evaluation is available as a free download.
Software download for evaluating the measurement data
Please check your FW status first (press the battery symbol on the keyboard of the unit and the Enter key/left arrow in succession) before updating the software, as the new software is not compatible with old units (< FW 5.36). For copy protection reasons, the processor is fused after assembly so that it is not possible to update the FW subsequently.

Too bad, now we have to go back to the glass ball or read in the coffee grounds to understand our visitors ...
Why do we have to do that? Quite simply, you have forbidden us to watch Your steps on our site with Google Analytics. That sounds dramatically to You, we know. But look at it: we do not even know who YOU are, we just see that SOMEONE looks at our pages, how he/she does that, how long this SOMEONE lingers on the respective pages, etc. We do not know who You are, whether You are male or female, how old You are, how Your weight is - no idea. Nor do we pass this data on to Google, we don not have them not at all! Nevertheless, this data of SOMEONE will provide us with valuable information about our site, we want You to like everything here, that You feel good and - of course - buy our products ...
So we can see where there are problems. If many visitors leave our site during the purchase process while choosing the payment method, we know that something is wrong and can improve it. Sounds good, right? Thats good for You and good for us. So it´s a win-win situation. So let us accompany You on Your way through our store. Deal?
Thanks, Harry can pack the glass ball ...
Great, you got it! Now we can work better on our offer again!
