RadComm MSpec Personal Radiation Detector

The RadComm MSpec portable fast responding radiation spectrometer and dose rate meter will instantly measure any material for the presence of radioactivity, whether it is General Waste, Medical Waste, or Scrap Metal.

Operation of the MSpec is completely automatic once the easy-to-set operational parameters have been decided upon. Simply position the unit in close proximity to the object that needs to be scanned and listen for the varying audio alarm to sound and/or the displayed readings to increase. The MSpec scans suspect material and quickly analyzes to determine if and what nuclide is present then categorizes the result as Medical, Industrial, or Natural Occurring Radioactive Material (NORM).

The selectable display readout will show the desired units of measure such as Counts per Second (CPS), Dose-Rate (nSv/h), Exposure Rate (µR/h), or Accumulated Dose (nSv).
