Model 30-7 Series

The Model 30-7 Series are handheld, lightweight neutron dose detectors that join the Model 30 digital meter with a 19.5 cm (7.7 in) diameter REM ball containing a 3He detector. The instruments use similar detectors that only differ by the boron concentration in the internal borated layer. The Model 30-7 detector has a lower boron concentration and offers a greater sensitivity, typically 10 cpm per µSv/h (100 cpm per mrem/hr), but tends to overrespond in the 5 keV range. The Model 30-7B detector has a higher boron concentration and a lower sensitivity, typically 4.5 cpm per μSv/h (45 cpm per mrem/hr), but does not have the same overresponse issue as the Model 30-7.

Three modes of operation – RATE, MAX, and COUNT – are available for the user. Measurements can be collected in two sets of units (primary and secondary) for RATE and MAX modes in cps, cpm, rem/hr, or Sv/h units. An internal switch is used to enable or disable the front-panel setup feature to protect desired settings from inadvertent modification. Setup is also available via the Lumic calibration software (see Options tab).

Each instrument features a large, easily-readable LCD (liquid crystal display) that may be rotated for maximum ease of use by the operator. The connecting cable is threaded through the rugged carrying handle to simplify use. In addition, the display unit may be detached from REM ball, permitting the operator to position the detector and the display unit to best advantage within the limits of the cable length. Other features are an audio warning tone and easy, intuitive, user-friendly design. Splash-resistant construction allows the Model 30-7 Series to be used in outdoor environments. The display body is constructed of lightweight, durable, high-impact plastic
