Geiger counter GAMMA-SCOUT Online: The radiation meter live transmission function
Radiation measuring instruments from Gamma Scout enjoy the best reputation worldwide and have been used successfully by researchers and hobbyists for many years. The Gamma Scout Online model in particular has made a name for itself. The device is often used at universities and research institutions, as the live transmission function makes it easy to present the data to an audience. The Geiger counter Gamma-Scout Online is one of the few handheld instruments on the German market that can measure alpha radiation in addition to beta, gamma and X-ray radiation. A high-quality counting tube, a long battery life and up-to-date evaluation software make this radiation meter so attractive for our customers!
Features and functions of the GAMMA-SCOUT Online
In addition to the functions of the Standard and Alert models, the GAMMA-SCOUT Online also has a live transmission function. Measurement results can be transferred in real time to a laptop or tablet. The supplementary graphics programme for data evaluation can be used for presentations and demonstrations, among other things.

Radon measurement with the GAMMA-SCOUT Online
The Geiger counter GAMMA-SCOUT is the only hand-held measuring instrument on the German market that can detect alpha radiation in addition to beta and gamma radiation. Radon belongs to the alpha emitters, which is why all GAMMA-SCOUT models detect radon gas. However, a radon measurement in Bq/m³ alone is not possible, as alpha radiation can only be measured in combination with the other two types of radiation. For reliable radon measurement, we recommend an active radon meter.

Note for already purchased units
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.
