The bright color display presents radiological data in a straight forward fashion using anyone of six operational modes that enable you to measure for contamination, view ambient radiation levels, count samples, graph current readings to see trends, and uses either US or International units of measurement. Data can be collected and stored then uploaded to a PC using a free Google Chrome plugin called Wizkers for display and reporting. An intuitive touch sensitive control pad allows the user to easily change operational modes, turn the built-in beeper on & off, or change settings.
The ONYX runs on a rechargeable battery that provides over 8 hours of full time use and recharges in just a few hours.
The unique shape and size are ideal for measuring contaminated surfaces whether you hold it in your hand directly or attach the optional handle that permits you to adjust the handle angle to your satisfaction and additionally extends the length to nearly 4 feet for monitoring the floor or hard to reach places. The shape and size are also great for transporting between measurement sites by inserting it into one of your pockets or carrying it on your belt via the protective carrying case provided with the instrument.
The ONYX detection sensitivity, portability, multi-purpose measuring modes, ease-of-use, free firmware updates, and attractive price make this instrument appealing to health safety professionals, educators, and private individuals alike. When taken in its totality, the ONYX is not just another Geiger counter, it redefines what a Geiger counter is and the shape of Geiger counters for years to come.
