Hand-Held Search Instruments

Polimaster offers broad line of hand-held search instruments for detecting alpha, beta, gamma and neutron radiation, and precise measuring of the radiation level. The hand-held search instruments can be used for different applications ranging from scanning scrap metal at recycling facilities and passengers and baggage scanning at airports to area monitoring and surface evaluation for radioactive contamination. All models have ergonomic design and can be used in both indoor and outdoor environments.


PM1401K-3 Multipurpose Hand-Held Radiation Monitor/Identifier belongs to the new family of Polimaster extremely sensitive and compact multipurpose hand-held radiation monitors.

PM1401K-3 can continuously measure ambient dose equivalent rate Ḣ*(10) of gamma and x-ray radiation in the wide energy range, monitor alpha, beta and neutron radiations, work as spectrometer of gamma radiation and radioisotope identifier, and measure food/soil contamination by 137Cs radionuclide.

All operation history is stored in the instrument’s non-volatile memory and may be downloaded to a personal computer through a USB interface. PM1401K-3 is also equipped with built-in GPS to enable geocached data logging.

The instrument can be used in both indoor and outdoor environments and is intended for everyday and/or emergency use by firefighters, military, police and other first responding agencies.
