An advanced hand held digital radiation monitor with a range of probe options for all your contamination monitoring and radiation protection requirements
Radhound X/E is an advanced digital hand held general purpose radiation monitor, suitable for a wide range of probes.
This feature packed instrument boasts unique features, such as the ability to switch between probes via the menu, allowing for example, a dose rate probe and a contamination probe to be configured for use with one instrument. This flexibility allows any standard probe to be used (300-1200V).
Radhound X/E is capable of measuring dose rate, CPS, CPM, Bq/cm2 with alpha and beta discrimination. The instrument menu allows adjustment of thresholds, high voltage, dead time and over-range protection.
Simple and easy to use
We take great care to ensure our instruments are very easy to operate. The menu on the Radhound X/E can easily be locked by the user to ensure only basic options are available, giving greater security and protection against accidental setting changes.
Multiple probe library/confirguration
As well as operating as a traditional single probe instrument, the Radhound X/E allows the user to switch quickly between alternative probe setups. (The user is instructed to plug in the correct probe before the new settings are applied, protecting against possible over voltage or use of incorrect settings).
Radhound X/E has an adjustable alarm threshold. Additionally separate alpha and beta alarms can be set. The sounder is loud and clear, and is suitable for use in many different environments. A symbol flashes on the display when in alarm.
Radhound X/E has a scaler time mode, allowing the integration of count for a preset time (or time to a preset count). Additionally in dose rate mode, time to dose can be indicated.
Radhound X/E automatically checks its health on turn on. It checks the high voltage, battery level, keyboard and sounder.

What batteries does the Radhound take?
The Radhound comes complete with a fully rechargeable Lithium Ion battery. Included is a charger so you can charge you battery via the mains.
Can I turn the sound off?
Both the clicks and the alarm can be turned on and off using simple short cut buttons. Icons on the display screen tell you whether they are on or off.
Can I use several probes with my monitor?
Each standard Radhound is calibrated with one individual probe. However the Radhound X/E can have up to 5 different probes calibrated with the one monitor allowing you to switch between probes as your work dictates.
Can I use the Radhound to measure dose rate?
Yes, depending on the probe choice, the Radhound can be set up for either dose rate measurement or standard ratemeter for contamination monitoring.
Can I measure contamination over time?
The Radhound has an integrator mode that allows you to measure contamination over a predetermined time. There is also source-finder mode which uses a histogram plot to help you find a specific spot of contamination.
Can I clean the monitor if it gets contaminated?
As the chemically resistant screen is completely flat it makes it easy to decontaminate with no knobs or buttons to clean behind.
Do you have an equivalent to my current probe?
We have a wide range of probes including GM tubes, scintillation probes and alpha/beta separation. We also have equivalents to many of the Mini probes; if you can’t see what you are looking for please ask.
Can I purchase a monitor without a probe?
Yes, all of our monitors and probes are priced and can be bought separately from one another.
Are the monitors made in the UK?
Yes, both the Radhounds and their probes are made and can be serviced here in the UK at our Sheffield office.
