Argon Electronics has launched the Radsim Source App for the GS series simulation Gamma sources.

When planning a radiological exercise, it is common practice to represent a specific source activity level. Alternatively, the instructor may wish students to detect a particular reading at a known distance from the source that works perfectly within the constraints of the training environment, planned scenario, or exercise area.

The Radsim Source App enables detection of a particular reading by hosting customisable simulated activity settings for Argon GS Series simulation Gamma sources.

This easy to use App enables the user to:

  • Select units of measurement for simulated activity, dose rate, and distances
  • Decide upon and set your simulated activity level
  • Set the desired reading for the student to experience at a specific distance. This should be in an unobstructed line of sight from the source; the App will then automatically calculate and set the required activity level

Once the simulated activity levels are set, the simulation source remembers them, even when the device is switched off. Settings only need to be reprogrammed if the user’s requirements change. Simulation sources can all be set to the same configuration, or they can be set differently.

The App can be used to configure the nine pre-set simulated activity levels for the GS4 series simulation gamma sources.

Neutron capability

For exercises that need to simulate Neutron activity to generate readings on the appropriate simulators, the App enables the desired activity or count rate to be set based upon distance from the simulation source – Ideal for use with our HRM simulator
