    MC1K Handheld Radiation Alert® Detector

    mc1k-meter.jpgThe MC1K uses a built-in energy compensated GM detector, and is much higher ranging than the standard Monitor 4, from which its design is otherwise based.  It detects Gamma and X-rays up to 1000 mR/hr over 4 selectable ranges.  A beep sounds and a count light flashes with each event detected.

    So in exchange for the higher operating range, prepare to give up some sensitivity on the lower end, but among our selection, the MC1K is all but alone in detecting higher ranging levels of radioactivity.

    Having said that, the MC1K is still sensitive to background radiation, registering about 5 to 8 CPM at sea level.

    This item typically ships within 1 business day.
