RAE Systems Rolls Out DoseRAE 2 with Dual Sensor Technology

RAE Systems has unveiled DoseRAE 2, a concise and lightweight electronic radiation dosimeter. The new dosimeter comes with a patented dual sensor technology and is approved by a recognised radiation testing facility.

DoseRAE 2

The size of this meter matches that of a credit card and is capable of radiation dosage monitoring and real-time dose rate detection. RAE Systems speeded up the production of DoseRAE 2 so that it will be  available in the international and local response teams  of Japan.

Thomas Nègre, the vice president of marketing for RAE Systems, said that they have increased  the production of other lines to address the increase in demand after the quake and tsunami disaster in Japan. He hopes that the efforts towards increasing production will be of help to the testing operations in Japan.

The DoseRAE 2 is essentially a personal radiation detector which comprises of a diode and a scintillation crystal sensitive to X and gamma-ray radiation. This provides monitoring of the radiation dose and the dose rate in real time environments. The sensor is capable of giving accurate and quick results over a broad-range of radiation levels as it uses one of its sensors for low-end readings and another for high dose rate levels. The dosimeter is robust and easy to use and is designed for use in workers at nuclear plants, research facilities, hospitals etc. The DoseRAE 2 was tested and approved by the OAK Ridge National Laboratory in Tenn. DoseRAE 2 is compliant with the U.S. IEEE ANSI 42.40 standard. It is available with authorized dealers of RAE systems.
