This is the meter that provides dual measurement type functionality or extended range capability. The dual detector/purpose capability, makes it an excellent choice for emergency response kits or any other applications where two probes measured by one instrument makes both practical and economic sense.
The instrument houses an internal GM tube that measures 0-2000 mR/hr (0-500k cpm) and also allows an external probe of your choosing to be connected so you can easily switch between each without any hassle. This microprocessor driven instrument displays its measurement on a digital LCD employing large size character readouts that make the measurement easy to read and understand as compared to traditional analog type meter faces.
Another highly useful feature is the ability to switch between countrate (CPM) and dose (mR/hr) modes of operation for taking different measurement types.
The instrument enclosure is sturdy metal construction for long-lasting, industrial use applications. The controls are all clearly indicated on the front panel to facilitate ease of use. The optional external detector of choice is connected via a BNC cable which is supplied at no additional cost anytime a detector is also purchased with the instrument.
he DSM-506 offers tremendous value when compared to other popular brands given the direct-readout digital display, dual operating modes and other useful features.
