Horizon Supervisory System

Horizon Supervisory System

Horizon Supervisory System

Description

Horizon is a real-time data acquisition and control system that provides supervisory oversight of your radiological instruments. It combines CANBERRA's radiological monitoring expertise with industry leading technology for SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) applications. The result is software that delivers an easy to use, reliable, high performance monitoring and control solution for nuclear facilities. It gives you a clear vision of the instruments throughout your site, work areas and environment.

A site can have a complex set of instrumentation to monitor personnel for contamination as well as to monitor areas for radiation. It is important that a supervisory solution provide real-time tracking of all the instrument data and help you interpret the information in an efficient manner. Being alerted to key events quickly means you can respond rapidly and with appropriate actions.

Horizon puts the information you need at your fingertips making your workplace more efficient and safe. The interactive and user-friendly interface alerts users to key alarms and events while also providing advanced management of all your instruments and the data they produce.

Overview screens, site maps and situation screens are easy to customize and can be done right within the user interface by your administrative users. Having screens that depict the actual areas being monitored provides users with an intuitive way to see what's happening and navigate to specific areas or instruments.

The scalable architecture makes Horizon suitable for everything from small radiological networks consisting of just a few instruments up to networks containing 200 personnel contamination and environmental monitoring devices.

RADACS Software (Radiological Assessment Display and Control System)

RADACS Software (Radiological Assessment Display and Control System)

RADACS Software (Radiological Assessment Display and Control System)

Description

The Radiological Assessment Display and Control System (RADACS) is designed to collect, manage, store, and distribute information from radiation detection instrumentation, as well as various other types of analog and digital instruments. RADACS is a suite of software applications, which collectively encompass all necessary functionality for managing radiological surveillance operations for a wide range of purposes.

The RADACS suite of software applications are deployed in a variety of configurations to suit the specific applications, including general radiation surveillance (such as Area, Liquid and Gas monitoring at nuclear power plants), research facility monitoring, mobile radiation monitoring, stack monitoring systems, and medical facility monitoring (i.e. P.E.T. systems). Regardless of the application, the technology used at the heart of the system is the same.

RADACS is a client/server technology built around standardized protocols and tools, including SQL databases and TCP/IP communication. Each RADACS installation consists of one or more server programs, along with a host of client applications that access the server programs as well as the databases. RADACS servers are responsible for acquiring information from a variety of devices, performing data processing on the acquired data, and then storing the data in a database. The servers also handle the distribution of information to client applications utilizing TCP/IP communication. This model of operation is used in all RADACS applications.

Features

  • Fast, real-time data acquisition and control
  • Highly reliable communication with remote terminal units
  • Collecting, converting, integrating and analyzing data from all monitors
  • Detecting, annunciating and storing alarm conditions
  • Alarm acknowledgment with audit trail
  • Providing current, as well as historical, displays of any channels on operator request
  • Graphical and tabular view of data over user selectable time periods and averaging durations
  • Providing on-line database and display generation and modification capability
  • Abundant user control over configuration from text messages to alarm colorcoding
  • Multi-user, multiworkstation, password controlled user access
  • Extensive reporting capability with export feature in a variety of formats (Excel, PDF, RTF, HTML, ASCII, etc.) for further analysis

RadHawk Client

RadHawk Client

Description

RadHawk Client is an easy to use Windows-based application that allows one or more remote PCs to monitor up to 256 RadNet compliant instruments. Instrument status, data and alarms are displayed via a graphical interface, which may be customized by the user. A static image (such as a facility map or satellite image) can be imported for use as the display background, and individual instrument display windows are arranged to reflect actual instrument locations.

Instrument display windows are grouped in user-defined tabs; allowing easy navigation through multiple types of monitoring devices. RadHawk can display up to 256 instruments on up to 25 tabs, allowing simple local management of extensive instrument networks. Users can also assign color and sound to the different instruments; each color and sound representing different status and alarm types.

In addition to displaying data from known instruments, RadHawk will inform the operator when a new RadNet-compliant device is added to the network. RadHawk is also equipped with a timeout alarm to notify the operator if a network instrument does not communicate within a user-defined time period. Multiple password-protected security levels allow the administrator to assign read-only, limited or full access to different operators.

RadHawk's spectrum panning feature allows users to zoom in on sections of spectrum data for closer inspection to determine if any isotopic radiation has been overshadowed by background radiation.

RadHawk allows data display and binary data logging of RadNet data packets from a variety of instrument types including continuous air monitors, area monitors and criticality monitors. Devices which are not RadNet-capable can be added to the network via the CANBERRA Code Talker.

RadHawk can be run on any desktop or handheld PC running Microsoft® Windows 2000 or higher. RadNet data is accessible over local area networks and is compatible with Internet transport protocols. The RadHawk Client software collects and displays this data, allowing near real-time review of data from remote locations.

Features

  • Remote monitoring of up to 256 instruments
  • User-definable colors, sounds, backgrounds and tab hierarchy
  • Timeout alarm
  • Multiple password levels
  • Data logging
  • Spectrum panning
  • Windows® 2000 or later
  • Accessible via wired or wireless Ethernet LAN
  • Able to accommodate non-RadNet compliant devices via Code Talker hardware

Positron Emission Tomography (P.E.T.) Radiation Monitoring

Positron Emission Tomography (P.E.T.) Radiation Monitoring

PET Center Monitors

Positron Emission Tomography (P.E.T.) is a non-invasive, diagnostic imaging technique for measuring the metabolic activity of cells in the human body. A PET Scan is a simple procedure involving the use of a small amount of a radioactive material, similar to what is used in other nuclear medicine procedures. The radioactivity is attached or tagged to a compound that is familiar to the body. Because of this radioactivity, it is necessary to have the proper monitoring instrumentation to measure areas and air vent effluents associated with these "tagged radioactive compounds". CANBERRA provides standard radiation instrumentation for monitoring areas, ventillation air, hands and feet, radiological analysis, surveys, and doorway monitors in all types of P.E.T. Centers.
