Radiation Alert® Monitor 4

Radiation Alert® Monitor 4 & 4EC

Easy to use, great general purpose radiation detector for a wide array of applications. The Monitor 4 Family of radiation detectors has been put to the test by decades of use in numerous industries.

Monitor 4:
Halogen-quenched uncompensated GM tube with thin mica window 1.5-2.0 mg/cm2 thick.
Effective diameter of window is 9.1 mm (.36 in.).

Monitor 4EC:
Halogen-quenched GM tube, energy compensated sidewall 2mm thin filter. Thin mica window 1.5-2.0 mg/cm2 thick. Effective diameter of window is 9.1 mm (.36 in.).

Operating Range
0-.5, 0-5, 0-50 mR/hr 0-500, 0-5,000, 0-50,000 CPM or 0-5, 0-50, 0-500 μSv/hr (SI Scale Meter Option)

Energy Sensitivity
1000 CPM/mR/hr (Cs137). M4EC is the same as M4 except the energy response for gamma and x-rays through the detector sidewall is flat within +61% or -26% over the range of 40 keV to 100 keV, and within +35% or -17% over the range of 100 keV to 1.3 MeV. M4 & M4EC meter scales shown below.

Both Detect beta at 50 keV with typical 35% detection efficiency and beta at 150 keV with typical 75% detection efficiency.

Typically ±15% of reading (Cs137)

Range Switch
X1, X10, X100, Battery Check.

Analog Meter holds full scale in fields as high as 100X maximum reading. CPM & mR/hr scale. Optional SI Scale Meter Available

Audio Indicator
Internally mounted beeper (can be turned off for silent operation).

Power Requirements
9-volt alkaline battery. Approx. 2,000 hrs. at normal background

Temperature Range
