New Personal Dosimeter Provides Ultra-Precise Radiation Dose Detection
Jul 31, 2018TEWKSBURY, Mass., July 31: A new personal dosimeter is designed to better protect personnel at nuclear power plants, medical facilities and other sites with radioactive materials. The new device combines gamma and beta dosimetry with telemetry in one compact unit.
The Thermo Scientific EPD TruDose electronic personal dosimeter offers advancements over previous models in the EPD line. It is designed to reduce the risk of radiation exposure and workplace interruption by providing real-time, ultra-precise dosage information. Additionally, the instrument features enhanced alarm packages and an easier-to-navigate menu in a more rugged instrument.
The dosimeter measures both gamma and beta radiation and incorporates pulsed detection technology for optimal performance in pulsed field environments. The EPD TruDose instrument also integrates Bluetooth Low Energy to connect and receive data from multiple devices at once through a separate transmitter, designed to minimize a facility's telemetry footprint and energy consumption.
The EPD TruDose dosimeter gives radiation protection managers greater confidence that their team members will stay safe from harmful exposure levels, said Julie Planchet, vice president/general manager, field and safety instruments for Thermo Fisher Scientific. By deploying the most innovative technology available today, they can also streamline workplace efficiencies and decrease costs for radiation protection, all while enabling employees to remain focused on their jobs.
The Thermo Scientific EPD TruDose electronic personal dosimeter also offers:
A range of alarm capabilities, including added warning thresholds and silent vibe alarms for covert homeland security operations
Integrated electromagnetic shielding of high tolerance to electro-magnetic fields
Configuration with Thermo Scientific EasyEPD3 software, which reads and writes data via an infrared communications link and displays the data in a PC window
A compact design for easy and secure attachment to a belt, rear clip, lanyard or shirt pocket
Optional accessories, including a desktop reader, an infrared reader and telemetry radios
