LB 112 Micro Gamma - stationary dose rate monitor

The LB 112 Micro-Gamma datalogger is a stationary monitor for one or two independent detectors or for a low dose / high dose rate measuring system. The operation of the device is controlled with a simple menu and softkeys.


Operation of the LB 112 is carried out with five softkeys located below the vacuum fluorescence display with adjustable brightness. All parameters are protected by a password.


An info key calls up a menu with important information during the measurement:

  • alarm conditions
  • raw data
  • alarm thresholds
  • further parameters

If the dose rate unit changed, the results are automatically renormalised. The dose rates are also available as output currents via the two analog outputs 0/4-20 mA, in a linear or logarithmic scale.

Details

The instrument has a wide range AC power supply input between 85 and 264 V or a 9 to 36 V DC input for battery operation. Up to 4000 data can be stored and transferred via two serial interfaces to an external computer. An RS 485 interface is already built-in so that no external adapter is required. Data transfer can be done using the F2C protocol via the serial interfaces, Ehernet or USB.

The measuring electronics is accommodated in a compact stainless steel housing. The entire electronics consists of one printed board, on which a small power supply unit is placed. On the front side there is a keypad and behind it an easy to read graphical vacuum fluorescence display (64 x 128 pixels).

The alarm signals can be tested and the acoustical signal reset by two push-buttons on the right side of the housing. The device is turned on and off using the internal mains switch. The external signal column can be equipped with various alarm elements (permanent light, flashlight or horn).

Applications

The stationary dose rate measuring device LB 112 is designed for monitoring radiation fields in the environment, especially at workplaces, in nuclear facilities, hot cells, nuclide laboratories and similar facilities.

You need a variety of different detectors to cover the complete dose rate range, for example, low dose counters, high dose counters, Geiger-Müller or proportional counters, ionization chambers and neutron dose rate detectors. The dose rate monitoring systems for environmental monitoring networks in the vicinity of nuclear facilities also require stationary dose rate measuring devices.


Further applications are, for example, process monitoring in PET centers, and online monitoring of radioactive gases.
