RAM ION

 
The RAMION DigiLog is a battery operated, auto ranging, portable ion chamber survey meter designed for highly stable and accurate measurement of dose rates and integrated dose of gamma, x-ray and beta radiation. The meter covers a measuring range of 1µSv/h - 500 mSv/h (0.1 mR/h to 50 R/h) in the dose rate mode, and 0.01 µSv - 10Sv (1uR to 1000 R) in the integrated dose mode. The auto ranging meter utilizes a combination display consisting of a smoothed digital readout for minimum fluctuation and a two-decade analog bar graph for fast response.

The RAM ION DigiLog survey meter combines an ionization chamber vented to atmospheric pressure, and a micro-controller to offer optimal performances and special features. Furthermore it is a compact, one hand-held, lightweight, rugged meter, easy to use and maintain.

The RAM ION DigiLog provides a very straightforward, fast and reliable method of collecting and storing monitoring data on site for later use. The RAM ION DigiLog can read bar code labels that identify measurements location. The measurement's data combined with their locations, data and time are stored in a built in memory. The stored data records can be downloaded by the SMARTS (Survey Mapping Automated Radiation Tracking System) or the RMV (Rotem Meter View) software packages.

The RAM ION DigiLog is ideal for use in nuclear power plants, nuclear medicine, radiography and radiotherapy facilities, life science laboratories, nuclear research centers and in other industrial applications.
