model 2080 Pulse Neutron Survey Meter is designed to measure either
pulsed or steady state neutrons. The instrument may be operated
as a fixed monitor or as a portable monitor using internal batteries.
The microprocessor based instrument displays the dose rate on a
digital alphanumeric display.
The model 2080 uses the principal of nuclear capture to detect neutrons.
The pulsed or steady state neutrons activate silver foil. The resultant
beta is measured with a GM counter. A second GM counter subtracts
the gamma background. This method of detection allows it to be used
to measure very quick pulsed neutron fields.
In addition the model 2080 has an alarm capability along with a
failsafe relay contact closure for use as an area monitor. A built
in horn and light are activated with the radiation level is exceeded.
The front panel also has a green, yellow, and red lamp to signify
the radiation level at a glance. Also included are a self test capability,
front panel lockout, RS232 link and a digital calibration routine.
The model 2080 offers all the capability, precision, and reliability
that is expected from modern microprocessor based instruments.
