The PDS-GO is a lightweight, small, sensitive, personal gamma radiation detector, designed to meet the ANSI N42.32 radiation detection requirements. This small instrument (125 g) is easily carried on the body and is used to detect and indicate the presence and magnitude of gamma emitting radiation

The PDS-GO measure from 0 to 500 µSv/h with a sensitivity of ~ 110 cps/µSv/h and is also ideal to use as a sensitive survey meter. This instrument has been designed using the latest “state-of-the-art” electronic components.

Silicon cover and belt clip is included.
