G64 Area Gamma Monitor

G64 Area Gamma Monitor

Overview

The G64 area gamma monitor forms part of the CAMSYS product line. It is a compact, mainspowered, microprocessor-based radiation monitor, designed specifi cally for area and process monitoring in nuclear facilities. Its main functions are to display the gamma dose rate in the area and to warn local personnel in the event of an alarm situation.

The G64 is intended for installed use but can also be used on a bench stand or wheeled trolley to provide temporary monitoring or to supplement permanently installed monitors during maintenance activities.

The standard G64 is supplied with a compact solid state detector for use in low to medium dose rate applications, but it is also available in three other versions for additional applications:

  1. G64IC: for high dose rate and high integrated dose applications
  2. G64SC: intended for use with existing scintillation detectors
  3. G64GM: intended for use with existing GM probes

AM-GP100 Area Monitors

AM-GP100 Area Monitors

Description

CANBERRA's SafePoint AM-GP100 Area Monitor is a technological integration of CANBERRA's powerful iR7040 intelligent ratemeter, proven time-to-count GP100 Series Gamma Probe, with or without an integrated check source, and interconnecting cable in a fully calibrated, tested and ready to deploy package for your demanding radiation monitoring application. The configurable design of the AM-GP100 eliminates the need for costly customization and minimizes maintenance requirements, thus saving time, cost and radiation exposure for users. This versatile package is suitable for use in Nuclear Power Plants, Research Reactors and other facilities that can benefit from advanced radiation monitoring.

The AM-GP100 is available in conventional and SI configurations, incorporating CANBERRA's unique time-to-count GP100 series detectors. The GP100C2/GP100C2S Gamma detector incorporates an integrated (nominal) 3.7 kBq (0.1 µCi) 90Sr check source to allow performance testing of the instrument in operation without removing it from service. All span an operating range of 0.1 µSv/h to 100 Sv/h (10 µR/h to 10000 R/h).

The AM-GP100 utilizes the iR7040 advanced digital ratemeter. The Area Monitor comes standard with a single GP100 series Gamma Probe, but is designed to power and control up to four CANBERRA radiation detectors of any style or application. The iR7040 will support any reporting requirement and radiation or activity unit of measure. Its large industrial color touch-screen interface is easily readable under all conditions. An integrated termination panel makes installation and servicing quick and simple. All data is captured and stored in a 2 GB flash memory providing a complete history of all parameters, readings, alarms and functions, source check readings and calibrations. System reliability is enhanced through the iR7040's rigorous self test functionality.

  • Configuration not customization! The iR7040 set-up is performed through the on-board menu or with a PC-based utility. One hardware configuration accommodates all detectors. Configurations, once established, may be saved to a database for back-up and then used to rapidly configure a replacement should that need arise.
  • Virtual Channels. A feature unique to the CANBERRA iR series ratemeters is its virtual channel capability. The ratemeter provides up to 32 user configurable channels that can be used to marry any or all of the four probe inputs and external measurement inputs to monitor and control parameters and processes normally done through an attached control system.
  • Termination Panel. The iR7040 incorporates an integrated, deportable termination panel on the rear of the ratemeter. This unique feature speeds installation and any subsequent maintenance.
  • Unparalleled measurement and data integrity via redundant internal processing and error checking.
  • Color touch screen display, provides bright and easy to read display of ratemeter data. The touch screen interface provides a fluid, intuitive interaction without the need for another laptop to interface or the tedium of scrolling through menus.
  • Enhanced Calibration Capabilities simplify calibration routines, reduce error-likely situations, improve traceability and maximize equipment availability.
  • See iR7040 Intelligent Ratemeter specification sheet for further details.

EcoGamma-g Environmental Gamma Radiation Monitor

EcoGamma-g Environmental Gamma Radiation Monitor

Description

CANBERRA's EcoGamma™-g is an advanced, dual detector, environmental gamma radiation monitor designed to operate in the most extreme conditions with unsurpassed accuracy, range and stability. Leveraging a long history of operating experience from CANBERRA's environmental monitoring family, the EcoGamma incorporates CANBERRA's unique "Time To Count", counting technique with its high and low range Geiger Mueller detectors in an assembly that provides excellent accuracy and linearity throughout its 1 μR/hr (10 nSv/hr) to 1000 R/hr (10 Sv/hr), H*10 compliant, 30 keV to 5.0 MeV operating range. The assembly is housed within a single IP67 rated weatherproof aluminum enclosure designed to provide stable, reliable performance in demanding operating environments.

The EcoGamma-g logs all data including dose rates, detector status, count rates, alarms, faults, etc. to its internal memory at one minute intervals, for 180 days of continuous storage. The historical data is completely maintained by the device, assuring that data will continue to be captured and stored even if communication with clients has been lost. The client application supplied with the EcoGamma-g includes capabilities for displaying and reporting historical and current data in various forms, including histogram and tabular. Historical and current data is also available for routine activities such as plotting of trends and enhanced performance monitoring.

Monitor performance and reliability are further assured through the EcoGamma's rigorous self test functionality, that continuously evaluates detector and sensor performance, high voltage, communications and critical circuit operation.
The EcoGamma-g's serial number is burned-in at the time of manufacture. All measurements and log data are tagged with this data. This feature makes supporting the traceability of calibrations, testing, performance plotting, measurements and trending an automatic affair.

Each monitor comes complete with LED operating status indicator, Ethernet and USB connectors and is "Powered over Ethernet" (POE). The EcoGamma-g can also accommodate a variety of external communication, power and hardware requirements. Its platform neutral software readily handshakes with common communication protocols, including line, RF, GSM, etc. EcoGamma monitors are designed to be easily networked. The monitor's threaded base accommodates a variety of mounting options and modular add-ons like back-up power.

EcoGamma contains an embedded temperature detector and logs its temperature data within the monitor's internal historical database. This data can supplement general environmental information at the monitor's location providing additional background concerning local conditions. Moreover, temperature data can assist with preventative maintenance and troubleshooting by providing early warning in the unlikely event that the broad temperature range of the detector has been exceeded.

The Total Integrated Radiation Dose (TID) of the monitor, as well as individual detector tube doses are also tracked by the EcoGamma. With this data, failures may be anticipated based on the accumulated counts. TID information aids in proactive maintenance by providing users with an estimate of how much life is available on the detectors. Associating all of this data with each detector aids in retrospective performance analysis.

The design of the EcoGamma offers an unparalleled degree of positional integrity, consistency and repeatability of its calibration routine. Its assembly is designed with tight tolerances for repeatable positioning and its housing provides visible marking of detector centerpoints to assure that the detectors are always calibrated at the same location and orientation. Calibration and linearity check functions within the software allow adjustment of calibration test points and ranges in accordance with local regulatory requirements. Test points may be added or subtracted to better refine calibration without special software modifications or workarounds. Calibration data is loaded and retained by the device maintaining complete calibration history within the device.
