Suitable for all Contamination and Radiation Detection
The Radhound radiation monitor is a multi-purpose digital radiation survey meter suitable for all your contamination monitoring and radiation protection requirements.
The portable Radhound radiation detection instrument is a cost effective, feature packed digital radiation monitor that is simple and easy to use. The radiation count rate is displayed in large clear numbers and also on a bar scale. Our smart averaging software means a steady display that can be read with confidence, yet provides a fast response.
For source finding, one button push on the radiation detection meter changes the display to a histogram plot. Alpha and Beta/Gamma counts can be displayed separately or on the same screen.
For surveying Radhound also has a time to count function.

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.
