Vehicle monitoring radiation detection systems
The RC2W34 series of vehicle radiation detection systems have been designed to detect radioactive material contained in a moving vehicle, loaded with waste and scrap metal material.
The RC2W34 series utilize high quality PVT scintillators and highly sensitive PMT’s coupled with high grade electronics and proven signal processing alarm algorithms. The system can re-learn background levels providing accurate scanning, while maintaining a low false alarm rate. If radiation signatures are present in a load of waste material, the system will immediately alarm, alerting the user, if a radioactive source has been detected.
The RC2W34 is available in a variety of sizes and configurations and can be upgraded to RC2000 and RC4000 series software. The most common models are listed below.
The innovative design of the RC2W34 is the result of customers’ demands for best in class scanning coverage of vehicles with a low cost of ownership.
