Radiation Interference Discrimination (RID)

If you want to continue to measure with impending external radiation, then the LB 470 series with RID option is required. The measurement continues without interruption, even if external radiation is present.

Cosmic radiation

The earth is continuously exposed to high energy radiation originating from outside the solar system – a discovery that was honored with the Nobel Prize in 1936.

Long-term stability of a detector

The long-term stability of a detector is extremely important for a consistently high quality measurement performance and accuracy during the entire operation.

Detector sensitivity

The detectors sensitivity describes how efficiently radiation is converted into a useable signal (i. e.”counts”).

SIL2 / SIL3 option for safety critical processes

To maintain the measurement stability and to monitor the detector functionality, the unique and unrivaled Berthold "cosmic radiation gain control" is used. This allows the use as a SIL2 high, or even low point level switch, without additional measures.

Radiometric measuring principle

Radiometric measurements for industrial processes have been around for several decades. They are an important component in the successful performance of critical level, density and flow measurements.
