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
- 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.
