The Ranger EXP offers maximum performance in a lightweight, rugged solution for using your survey meter in the field. The Ranger EXP is designed specifically for individuals operating in tough environments. The small, handheld unit offers excellent sensitivity to low levels of alpha, beta, gamma, and x-rays. The digital readout is displayed with a red count light and a beeper sounds with each count detected. Other features include an adjustable timer, selectable alert, and with the free Observer USB Software Family, you can download your collected data, and set alarms!
Ranger EXP Quick Specs
DetectorRAP-RS2 Probe - External Halogen-quenched, uncompensated GM tube with thin mica window, 1.4-2.0 mg/cm2 areal density. Effective diameter of window is 45 mm (1.75 in.).
Operating RangemR/hr - .001 (1µR) to 100
CPM - 0 to 350,000
µSv/hr - .01 to 1000
CPS - 0 to 5000
Total Counts- 1 to 9,999,000 counts
Accuracy (Referenced to Cs137)
Typically ±15% from factory, ±10% with NIST Source Calibration
Energy SensitivityDetects Alpha down to 2 MeV. Detects Beta down to .16 MeV; typical detection efficiency at 1 MeV is
approx. 25%. Detects Gamma down to 10 KeV through the detector window. 3340 CPM/mR/hr (137Cs). Smallest detectable level for 125I is .02 µCi at contact.
Built-In EfficienciesSulfur (35S), Strontium (90Sr/y), Cesium (137Cs), Phosphorus (32P), Carbon (14C), Iodine (131I), Cobalt (60Co), and Alpha
Selectable Alert Set RangemR/hr .001 - 100 and CPM 1 - 350,000. 70db @ 1m. Pulsating beeper sounds the alert. Adjustable alert levels are used for mR/hr / CPM, and µSv/hr / CPS. Alarm will sound when in Timer Mode when set alarm threshold is reached.
Anti-SaturationMeter will hold at OVER RANGE in fields as high as 100 times the maximum reading.
Averaging PeriodsDisplay updates every 3 seconds. At low background levels, the update is the average for the past 30-second time period. The timed period for the average decreases as the radiation level increases.
DisplayGraphic LCD with Backlight
Count LightRed LED flashes with each radiation event.
Audio IndicatorInternally mounted beeper (can be switched off for silent operation)
OutputsUSB for use with Free Observer USB Software Family
Power RequirementsTwo AA alkaline batteries (included). Approx. 800 hrs @ background
