RS-220 Super-IDENT Handheld Isotope Identifier

Hi-Sensitivity Search and Nuclide ID Capability

The RS-220 handheld isotope identifier with optional Neutron detector
is a robust portable radiation search and identification device. It offers
an integrated design with a large NaI detector for search, direct nuclide
identification readout, sensitive dose rate and data storage. The spectrometer
is auto-stabilised on the naturally occurring local background and does not
require any test sources for proper operation. With full weather protection and
a rugged design the unit offers high sensitivity and good survivability in the

challenging operations and locations often encountered. The simple one-
button operation makes the unit easy to use and simplifies operator training.

Bluetooth connectivity provides wireless data output and add-on accessories
such as GPS.

Search Mode

The large NaI detector gives the user an extremely high level of system
sensitivity. The large, easy-to-read 5 digit front panel display updates at a
1/sec rate, providing a scrolling histogram graph with the last 100 readings
simplifying the source localisation. The integrated audio scans at a 20/sec
data rate for fast, easy and eyes-free searching. In noisy areas or for covert
operation users can utilise a Bluetooth linked audio headset.

Nuclide Identification Mode

The Nuclide Identification mode provides direct identification of radioactive
material present in a relatively short period (typically 60 seconds). The large
NaI detector gives higher levels of performance and faster ID.

Recording Data

The unit has a large internal memory for recording data as well as the location
when an external GPS is connected via Bluetooth. This capability enables the
users to move through a large area with the unit recording data at typically
1/sec rate. Compatible software then creates a map giving the user the
capability of mapping their facility on a regular basis to check for anomalies.

RS-Analyst Software

The RS-220 comes complete with RS-Analyst software allowing a PC user
the ability to download data that is stored in the RS-220. Parameter set up
or diagnostics can then be performed easily via Bluetooth or USB with the
user’s PC and downloaded data. The data may take the form of 1024 channel
spectra, Nuclide ID data, GM data and GPS data. The program also presents
graphical and numeric views of the data or the data can be exported as a text
file for further processing.
