Advanced hand held digital radiation monitor with a range of probe options for all your contamination monitoring and radiation protection requirements
Radhound X is an advanced digital hand held general purpose radiation monitor, suitable for a wide range of probes, including an optional internal dose rate detector. 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 is capable of measuring dose rate, CPS, CPM, with alpha and beta discrimination. The instrument menu allows adjustment of thresholds, high voltage, dead time and over-range protection. Radhound X comes with an infrared port as standard allowing wireless communication for remotely monitoring the count rate.

- Rugged case, waterproof to IP65 and chemical resistant
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.
