The new RS-230 Spectrometer is the state-of-the art in portable hand-held radiation survey search devices for the geophysical industry. It offers an integrated design with a large detector, direct Assay readout, data storage, full weather protection, ease of use and highest sensitivity in the market. The use of a BGO give very significant increase in performance over the normal NaI detector (typically 3x).
The performance of the 6.3 in3 (103 cm3 ) higher density Bismuth Germanate (BGO) is approximately 80% of a 21 in3 ( 390 cm3 ) Sodium Iodide (NaI) commonly used with larger portable units and approximately 50% more than the same size NaI crystal.
Total count display on front panel in cps at 1/sec update rate. Loud linear audio permitting eyes-free operation. USB earphone support for noisy area surveying.
Variable rate SCAN mode stores data in memory or outputs via Bluetooth to an external storage device. External GPS is integrated into the data stream via Bluetooth connection to give location data.
The assay mode provides sample concentration analysis with direct data display of K (%), U and Th (ppm) as shown below. User selectable sample time for optimum analysis.
The RS-230 is provided with utility software to download the data that is stored in memory. All data in memory is output via Bluetooth or USB to the RS-Analyst program on a PC. This may take the form of 1024 channel spectra, assay data or Scan data + GPS. The program also gives graphical and numeric views of the data. The data can also be re-exported as a text file for further processing.
