Ramon 2.2 Radon Monitor
Accurate measurement of Radon concentrations requires highly sophisticated equipment. The Ramon 2.2 Radon Monitor meets these very high standards but has the added advantage of being cost effective and extremely user friendly. Whereas some Radon measurement equipment necessitates special computer software and highly skilled operators, the Ramon 2.2 is fully automatic requiring nothing more than plugging into a mains socket.
Siting and Installation
The instructions provided, give full details of where and how to site the unit. It can be either wall mounted or placed on a horizontal surface such as a table. As Radon measurement takes place over an extended timescale, the Ramon 2.2 should be securely located out of harm's way.
Long-term/Short-term Operating Modes
Most recommended guideline values for Radon concentrations, with regard to health, are based on long term averages such as annual mean values and the Ramon 2.2 Monitor will perform this function continuously by taking readings on an hourly basis and giving the average reading from initial switch on or from a manual reset. Where a person is exposed to Radon in this location for a known length of time, this makes the Ramon 2.2 Radon Monitor an effective dosimeter. It is well known that Radon levels can vary significantly due to various factors such as changes in atmospheric pressure or water table and this monitor has a useful feature in that, in addition to its long-term measurement function, it can also show Radon concentrations over the preceding seven days. The operator can simply toggle between the two functions. Short-term measurements are particularly useful for showing the effectiveness of any remedial works.
Quality and Calibration
Although ideal for domestic installations, the Ramon 2.2 Radon Monitor is highly regarded in the scientific community and is used by Radon professionals, universities and government departments in many countries. Before being shipped out to customers, each unit is calibrated, the calibration being traceable back to the primary Radon standard of the PTB-Braunschieg, Germany.
