The DSM-525 is a versatile, general purpose, radiation survey meter that accepts two separate detector inputs. This unique design facilitates having two unique detectors connected all the time so users only need to switch a front panel control rather than physically exchanging detectors anytime they want to perform a different measurement type. A wide variety of alpha, beta, and gamma type radiation detectors are available and sold separately for use with this instrument.
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.
The front panel controls enable users to easily switch between detectors as well as choosing between countrate (CPM) and Doserate (mR/hr) modes to perform the desired measurement type. The instrument additionally can be set to forewarn the user anytime radiation levels exceed preset values for each detector.
The DSM-525 offers tremendous value when compared to other popular brands given the direct-readout digital display, dual operating modes and ability to conveniently switch between detectors.
