  1. Measuring by pushbutton: One button is enough to instantly start radiation measurement.
  2. Tested precision instrument: Each GAMMA-SCOUT« radiation meter is subjected to rigorous endurance testing supervised by a certified European Institute of Radiation Protection. Each unit receives its own serialized test certificate
  3. All radiation types: GAMMA-SCOUT« reliably measures alpha, beta, gamma and x-radiation.
  4. Permanent operation: GAMMA-SCOUT« Geiger counter monitors radiation around the clock. Switch-on/-off is unnecessary, as is battery change.
  5. Low power consumption: Due to an innovative circuit design, the GAMMA-SCOUT« system consumes almost no power. The built-in battery lasts up to ten years.
  6. Large display area: Values and settings are shown on the extra-large liquid crystal display.
  7. Menu control: An easy-to-understand menu guides you through all device functions.
  8. Data storage: GAMMA-SCOUT« radiation monitor continuously stores recorded pulses in internal memory.
  9. Evaluation by computer: Specially designed software included with GAMMA-SCOUT« allows data download and evaluation on your laptop or PC.
  10. Compact design: GAMMA-SCOUT« Geiger counter is shock resistant, compact, light, and easily fits in your hand or pocket.
