The palmRAD 907 nuclear radiation monitoring meter provides multiple monitoring and surveying options in an easy-to-use handheld device. It measures alpha, beta, gamma and x-ray radiation which can be displayed in rates and total counts. The user can switch between mR/hr, Svi cpm and total counts.

This model would function excellently for nearly any application. Whether the duty is radioactive food and water monitoring, contaminated soil and water detection or isotope identification, the Berkeley Nucleonics PalmRAD 907 can provide the robust functionality, yet simplicity, you need to provide accurate and reliable radiological data each and every time.

There is a digital display of the selected mode and three other types of indicators - a LED indicator, an audio alarm and an audio chirp. The LED flashes with each count. The palmRAD 907 has a user adjustable alarm threshold. When the selected level has been exceeded the powerful audio alarm will sound. The audio chirp, when enabled, emits a single chirp with each count detected. Put low cost, reliable and proven nuclear radiation contamination detection in the palm of your hand.

Display: 4-digit liquid crystal display with mode indicators
Averaging Periods: Display updates every 3 seconds, showing the average for the past 30-second time period at normal levels. The averaging period decreases as the radiation level increases. User can select fast 3-second averaging period.
Operating Range: mR/hr: .001 to 100.0; CPM: 0 to 300,000; Total: 1 to 9,999,000 counts; mSv/hr: .01 to 1,000; CPS: 0 to 5,000
Efficiency: Sr-90 (546KeV, 2.3MeV max): approx. 75%; C-14 (156KeV max): approx. 11%; Bi-210 (1.2 MeV max): approx. 64%; Am-241 (5.5 MeV ): approx. 36%
Sensitivity: 3500 CPM/mR/hr referenced to Cs-137
Accuracy: ± 15%
Timer: Can set 1-10 minute sampling periods in 1-minute increments, 10-50 minute sampling periods in 10-minute increments, and 1-24 hour sampling periods in 1-hour increments
Count Light: Red LED flashes with each radiation event
Audio: Beeper beeps with each radiation event; can be muted
Outputs: Dual miniature jack drives CMOS or TTL devices, sending counts to computer or data logger. Submini jack allows for electronic calibration.
Anti-Saturation: Readout holds at full scale in fields up to 100 times the maximum reading
Temperature Range: -10° to +50° C , 14° to 122° F
