The MONITOR 4 and MONITOR 4EC are compact, general purpose survey meters capable of detecting alpha, beta, gamma, and x-rays over 3 selectable ranges. A red count light flashes and a beep sounds with each event detected. The Monitor 4EC offers a more accurate linear reading for gamma and x-rays (above 40 keV).
- Monitor 4: Halogen-quenched uncompensated GM tube with thin mica window 1.5-2.0 mg/cm2 thick.
- Monitor 4EC: Halogen-quenched GM tube, energy compensated sidewall 2mm tin filter. Thin mica window 1.5-2.0 mg/cm2 thick.
- Monitor 4 Energy Sensitivity: Detects alpha down to 2.5 MeV; typical detection efficiency at 3.6 MeV is greater than 80%. * Detects beta at 50 keV with typical 35% detection efficiency. * Detects beta at 150 keV with 75% typical detection efficiency.
- Detects gamma and x-rays down to 10 keV typical through the window, 40 keV minimum through the sidewall of the detector. Normal background is approximately 10-20 CPM.
- Gamma Sensitivity: 1000 CPM/mR/hr
- Monitor 4EC Energy Sensitivity Same as Monitor 4 except: The energy response for gamma and x-rays through the detector sidewall is flat within +61% or -26% over the range of 40 keV to 100 keV, and within +35% or -17% over the range of 100 keV to 1.3 MeV (referenced to Cs-137)
- Range Switch: X1, X10, X100, Battery Check.
