RADEX model RD1706 had been developed on the base of the RD1503 model, but it is more precise due to use of TWO Geiger-Muller tubes.
It can be used by professionals and non-professionals for quick and reliable measurements of radiation background in environmental, soil and non-consumable products.
RADEX RD1706 Geiger Counter is a major step up from the basic 1503 model. Along with all options and sturdiness of RD1503 it is capable of additional functions:
The device has retained «BACKGROUND» mode used in RD1503+ (very convenient for performing inspections inside premises and materials).
RADEX RD1706 contains two SBM20-1 type Geiger–Muller counters, which allow one sensor to be dedicated for beta- and gamma-rays. The use of two separate sensors allowed a significant reduction in measurement cycle (from 40 seconds to 26 seconds) while improving precision of measured results.
RD1706 can register and display the value of a dose-rate as high as 999.0 µSv/h.
When presence of a strong radiation source is detected, measurement period drops from 26 seconds to as low as 1 second, to provide real-time accurate radiation read out.
Most other features from the RADEX family were also retained, i.e. the usual frame with a large LCD screen, three buttons operation, battery charge indicator, display backlighting and personal settings like threshold alarm activation, alarm signal strength, and backlight option.
