REED R8008 Portable Radiation Meter


This portable radiation meter detects alpha, beta, gamma and X rays. The R8008 features user adjustable alarm limits, internal memory capable of recording up to 4000 groups of data and the ability to connect wirelessly to a PC via Bluetooth. Typical applications include checking for radioactive deposits in the ground, X-ray scatter and monitoring environmental conditions to alert users of radioactive presence.
