RADEX RD1706 Double Geiger Counter for Beta & Gamma Rays (0,05 ... 999 µSv/h)




Precision, Range and Affordable, for hte scientist inside you.

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.

 You can familiarize yourself with the RD1706 device operation by using a flash model below or reading the "Operation Manual".

* 1) Measurement Cycle decreases when the ambient radiation exceeds 3.0 µSv/h.
   2) The more Measurement Cycles conducted the greater the reliability of indications.

** 1) Using factory settings, with ambient radiation below 0.3 µSv/h and two "AAA" batteries with a capacity of 1350 mAh.
     2) The device can operate with one power element «ААА» type (the time of continuous operation will be reduced).
