Inspector Alert Pocket Model
The Inspector Alert Digital Pocket Geiger Counter
The Inspector Alert, among the most sensitive pocket Geiger counter available, offers a digital readout on a crisp, clear, easy-to-read LCD display, as shown in these pictures. The readout is displayed also with a red count light and audible beep (play this sound file), providing instant indications of the radiation level.
This unit also has a very large detector, with a diameter of 45 mm (1.75 in), increasing the efficiency of radioactivity detection, and offering excellent sensitivity to low levels of Alpha and Beta, in addition to normal Gamma and X-ray detection. See picture at right. This feature makes the Inspector suitable for applications requiring higher levels of sensitivity such as checking food for radioactive contamination, subject to certain qualifications - click on the above link.
The Inspector Alert is in part named for its user-settable Audible Alert. You can see the controls on the top panel of the unit (see photo).
When the Mode switch on the front of the instrument is set to Total/TImer, you can engage an adjustable timer to set sampling periods of 1 minute, 10 minutes, or 1 hour, up to 24 hours. See the photo above. This is an especially useful feature for establishing a background count, or for low level radiation detection.
This unit also has an output port to record counts on a computer or data logger, as shown in the picture below. Select the navigation button above or click on this link for more on Data Output and Software. This port can alternatively be used for audio output through earphones. An external calibration port is also located on the side of the instrument.
The Inspector also comes with a padded vinyl carrying case (below) with belt clip. Select the navigation button above, or click here for detailed Specifications on the Inspector.
The Inspector series of models is probably the most popular Geiger counter among our selection. If you want a Pocket Geiger Counter with ultra sensitivity, user-adjustable audible alert, a timer and/or data port, and prefer a digital readout versus an analog meter, we recommend this unit.
