SVG2 Simulator product launch

Argon Electronics is proud to have launched a training simulator for the SVG2 RadiacMeter made by Thermo Fisher Scientific. Thanks to the close partnership between the two companies, the look, feel, and response of the SVG-2 SIM simulation training system, which includes the SVG-2 SIM survey meter simulator and the simulation Alpha, Beta, Gamma probe, is remarkably similar to the actual detector.

This training system provides a comprehensive training capability that enables students to experience every operational feature of the real Thermo Fischer Scientific SVG-2 without the need to use an ionizing gamma or beta radiation source.

The SVG-2 SIM responds to safe electronic sources that simulate ionising radiation; this removes regulatory, environmental, and health and safety concerns during training exercises. The simulation sources can be used anywhere, including within public buildings. SVG-2 SIM is fully compatible with the Argon PlumeSIM system for wide-area tactical field and nuclear emergency response exercises, which ensures everyone understands the correct procedure in the event of an emergency. Compatible Dosimeter and spectrometer simulators are also available.

SVG-2 SIM simulates:

  • Internal and external (Alpha / Beta / Gamma) detection
  • Analogue and digital backlit display
  • Numeric display to show either the dose rate or the dose
  • The status of the meter and alarm threshold settings

SVG-2 SIM facilitates high-quality survey meter training, developing skills in:

  • Survey and location of radioactive sources
  • Isodoserate mapping
  • Shielding
  • Safe demarcation
  • Inverse Square Law response (1/r2)
  • Dose and Doserate management
  • Effects of different types of shielding such as brick, wood, and glass

SVG-2 SIM permits radiological instructors to safely teach critical search, reconnaissance, survey, and location skills as well as a practical understanding of inverse square law, isodose rate mapping, shielding, and safe demarcation. The SVG-2 SIM receives encoded signals representing specific beta/gamma radionuclides from deployed electronic simulation sources or PlumeSIM. Additionally, with the simulated external Alpha, Beta, Gamma probe survey, contamination monitoring, and decontamination exercises can be carried out.
