The Radon Scout offers the highest senitivity of its class exceeding the sensitivity of its competitors many times. This results in the lowest detection limit and statistical error. The thousands of times proven and US-EPA certified instrument will show the time distribution of Radon even at levels below 100 Bq/m³. Thus, meteorological influences as well as ventilation effects can be detected easily.
Due to its outstanding sensitivity, the instrument is perfectly suited for direct controlling of ventilation equipment by a potential-free switch contact. As an accessory, we offer a wireless switch which can be directly connected to the instrument. Thus, very low effort is required to control fans such as kitchen hoods, wall or window ventilators anywhere in your home. It is even possible to upgrade older instruments. The switch threshold for the Radon Scout is fixed to the EU target value of 300 Bq/m³ whilst the Radon Scout PLUS allows user specific settings.
Two standard D-size cells enable an autonomous operation over a few months. The Radon detector Radon Scout PLUSoffers an additional connection for an external power supply. In fact, this allows an operation over infinite time periods.
The size of the data memory was designed to get a high-resolution time distribution. Any number of measurement series may be created. The acquired data can be loaded by a PC even if a measurement is in progress. The Radon detector can be directly connected to a modem for remote data transmission.
The included Radon Vision software handles the remote connection as simple as a direct cable link.
Because of the high sensitivity, variations of the activity concentration will detected accurately even in case of low Radon levels. The Radon detector works in diffusion mode so that a possible influence of Thoron can be excluded. The measurement chamber, equipped with a semiconductor detector and high voltage collection, is immune to ambient humidity.
Sensors for temperature and humidity (barometric pressure in addition in case of Radon Scout PLUS) are very useful add-ons. The integrated tilt detector will give a signal if the Radon detector was moved from its original position during the measurement.
The instrument has been certified by the US-EPA/NRSB and other international authorities.
