Which Probe Model is right for me in a Geiger counter?
Prospector - A rugged unit of traditional design with a standard probe, making the unit good for general purpose use. Detects medium and high levels of Beta, Gamma, and X-radiation to 50 mR/hr. Price: $979
Detector - An ultra-sensitive pancake style Geiger-Mueller detector, along with an extended angled handle, make this probe ideal for contamination detection and frisking. The Geiger-Mueller tube detects low levels of Alpha, Beta, Gamma, and X-radiation. This probe is configured with the same traditionally styled survey meter as used in the Prospector, with readout to 50 mR/hr. Price: $1,095
Inspector EXP - As sensitive as the Detector above, because both probes use essentially the same large pancake styled Geiger-Mueller detector, but the EXP is especially configured for EMT and HAZMAT personnel, housed in a carrying case that can fasten to your belt for complete portability. Unlike the Detector above, the Inspector EXP uses the fully digital and electronic Inspector Pocket Model as its survey meter, offering an LCD readout from .001 to 100 mR/hr. Price: $749
Abacus- A specialized Digital Wireless Handheld Radiation Detector designed to work in tandem with Windows Mobile or Palm Pilot. This feature, along with its convenient and lightweight configuration, makes the Abacus especially well suited for surveying in remote locations, and saving the data to the mobile device software for later analysis. The Abacus is as sensitive as the Detector and Inspector above, because the probes use essentially the same large, pancake styled Geiger-Mueller detector, and detect Alpha, Beta, Gamma, and X-radiation. Price: $665
Probe Replacement - The CDV-700RP is a replacement probe only, for the Civil Defense Meter CDV-700. This is a Pancake style Probe that will substantially increase the sensitivity of your CDV-700, enabling you to detect Alpha and Beta radiation, as well as low energy Gamma and X-radiation. This replacement probe has a connector especially designed to plug into the existing cable on your CDV-700. Price: $279
