IMI Inspector Alert
The IMI Inspector Alert v2, by International Medcom,
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 model is also built around a
very large , pancake-style Geiger-Mueller tube, 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.
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
