RADEX RD1706 Geiger Counter measures x-ray and beta radiation. It is the new addition to the RADEX family of radiation detectors and monitors. This device can be used not only by professionals working with sources of ionizing radiation but also by average consumers interested in checking the contamination of places and objects and knowing the results with a high degree of precision. RADEX RD1706 is capable of: increased precision of indications; expanded range of indications (to 999.0 µSv/h).

Applications: Real-time testing evaluation, scientific testing on building material, In-hospital industry like radiation therapy monitor for cancer, food, water, x-ray and more

RADEX RD1706 Geiger Counter small and tight construction of the radiation analysis device ensures transportations with fewer expenses. It uses two SBM20-1 types of Geiger-Muller counters, one each for beta- and gamma-rays.The long battery life of both radiation analyzers makes operations easier. The use of two separate sensors allowed us to reduce the time of observation from 40 seconds to 26 seconds while improving the precision of indications. The range of indications was expanded 100 times, compared to RADEX RD1503. RD1706 can register the value of a doze-rate as high as 999.0 µSv/h. Time of observation automatically adjusts from 26 seconds to as low as 1 second when the presence of strong radiation sources is detected.
