Pager-sized Radiation Detector Embodies Neutron Detection
FLIR Systems announced the release of the latest addition to the identiFINDER R200 series of handheld radiation security solutions – the identiFINDER R200-GN spectroscopic personal radiation detector (SPRD).
The rugged, pager-sized unit can detect neutrons and identifies gamma radiation, allowing front-line responders to quickly determine whether there is a true radiation threat for safe, informed decision-making. Since neutrons penetrate material and travel distances greater than any other form of radiation, the FLIR identiFINDER R200 with neutron detection and gama radiation ID is an important early warning system for the detection of malicious material and an additional safety feature for responders.
The device meets the 1.5m drop criteria required by ANSI N42.32, one of the key performance standards for alarming PRDs in homeland security applications. The IP67 rating assures the R200-GN is protected against dust and immersion in water up to 1m depth.
The unit features integrated Bluetooth Smart wireless technology, which facilitates recording and the sending of real-time dose rates and geotag information via a companion mobile app. The R200-GN enclosure is also MIL-STD-810G compliant to protect against salt and fog.
