Radiation Survey Meter




The Bruker SVGps Radiation Survey Meter is a high precision, handheld system that uses a combination of Geiger-Mueller counting tubes and semiconductor detectors. The system includes a lightweight external probe that detects alpha-, beta-, gamma- and x-ray radiation simultaneously.

For users who need an extended range for beta-/gamma measurements, a dedicated probe is available as an option, which extends the upper detection limit by a factor of five. Neutron radiation is detectable with an optional probe. When either probe is connected, the SVGps recognises that particular probe and sets the measurement Parameters accordingly.

Key Applications

Key applications include direct use by the military, by civil defence and by first responders to assist in locating threats from ionising radiation. SVGps also has numerous civil applications in nuclear waste storage sites, nuclear power plants and radioanalytical facilities. 



The utility of the SVGps is further enhanced by the inclusion of an integrated GPS/GLOSNASS module linked to an internal data logger. Radiation measurements at specific GPS locations may be downloaded from the unit using the IR data transfer module and displayed directly on a map of the world.

The map scale can be adjusted to suit requirements, and contains street level data to allow accurate co-ordinates to be established for the recorded data. Running from a single, standard rechargeable Li-Ion battery, the system includes a solar panel to help maintain the battery charge level. For transport or storage, the SVGps is supplied in a robust case along with a comprehensive accessories pack.
