Pocket Radiation Detector - model 1503P


Pocket Radiation Detector

This is the most popular, best value, easiest to use, and most sensitive Radiation Detector you're going to find. For ease of use and high sensitivity, our 1503P Pocket Radiation Detector is the choice.

We previously sold a similar unit (model 1503) which was extremely popular. The new model 1503Plus, has just been updated with new technology and features for 2014. The sensitivity of this device is unmatched. Fully digital and a push of a single button gets you radiation results. It is called a Radiation Detector and not a Geiger Counter because it does far more than an ordinary Geiger Counter does. It features selectable audio alarm thresholds as well as a vibration alarm for covert or quiet use. You can choose radiation measurements in either international µSv/h or µRem/h. This is truly the perfect personal radiation detector. Worried about food, water & air contamination? What about radiation levels around your home? The 1503P not only simply detects radiation, but will act as a Dosimeter and analyze radiation levels over a fixed period of time and be able to detect extremely low levels of radiation that Geiger Counters will miss - critical when we're talking about food and water contamination.

The 1503P indicates levels of Beta, Gamma, and X-Ray radiation by a series of audible 'beeps' as well as a digital display with large, clearly defined numbers on a large LCD display with LED backlighting so readings are visible in total darkness. The pocket size makes it very convenient  for industrial, covert & general use. The 1503P will even fit in a shirt pocket. Typically Geiger Counters have a separate probe requiring 2 hands to operate the unit. The all-in-one design of the 1503P allows you to operate it with one hand leaving the other free.
The unit takes two ordinary AAA batteries and the battery indicator lets you know when they need replacing. The 1503P features an industry standard Halogen-quenched thin-wall metal Geiger-Mueller tube.

Applications for the units are many and may include checking for food & water contamination, environmental contamination, scrap metal contamination, industrial, clinical, field, school classroom, home use, or wherever radioactive materials are present. Perfect for amateur as well as professional use - unmatched for its simplicity, convenience and sensitivity. Ideal for workers handling radioactive minerals, metals, and isotopes who are concerned about unknowingly bringing home contamination on their clothes and shoes.
Unit comes with a 1 year warranty, the batteries installed, and is ready to use right out of the box.

We also include a small radioactive Geiger Counter Test Sample so
 operation of the unit can be verified at any time.
