Fluke Electronics introduces the 481 Radiation Survey Meter for industrial radiation safety. This simple, easily-deployed hand-held radiation detector enables facility managers to quickly check for contamination everywhere it can go: receiving docks, warehouses, vehicles, packages or people.
The highly-sensitive Fluke 481 is ideal for detecting radiation on goods, equipment, surfaces, or environments in industrial settings to ensure worker safety.
The meter's ion chamber, preferred over other devices for its precision accuracy, provides quick, accurate readings of skin dose (beta), deep dose (gamma) and x-ray radiation with simple two-button operation. If radiation is found, a clear and quantifiable result allows managers to comply with federal guidelines while avoiding unnecessary steps that might halt operations, impact productivity or lead to lost revenue.
The 481 works reliably indoors and outdoors thanks to its rugged sealed case and provides more than one week of continuous operation on two easily-replaceable 9-volt batteries. Its automated backlight keeps the meter visible inside truck trailers and other low-light conditions. Proven in use by state and local governmental emergency response professionals, state inspectors, HAZMAT teams, and nuclear power workers, the Fluke 481 is the simple solution for industrial professionals to maintain a safe and operational work environment for their employees.
