(THIS READER HAS BEEN DISCONTINUED - ONLY SERVICING OF UNITS MAY STILL BE AVAILABLE)



Reads Series 60
Radiachromic Films

Automatic Zero

Data Identification

The Model FWT-100 Radiachromic Reader System offers a state-of-the-art performance for both high and low volume users of Radiachromic film dosimeters. This reader is fast, accurate and above all easy to use.

The system consists of a reader head, ISA interface card that plugs into the inside of your PC and assorted programs. The interface card and cable are the same as used with the FWT-200 Opti-Chromic Reader Head, but each system uses different software.

The addition of the computer to the measurement cycle reduces the complexity of the system. The computer does all the calculations necessary not only to take a reading but also to reduce the data and store it for later reference or reporting. It assists the user by performing the following tasks:

Automatic Zero
The computer will automatically set the zero of the system as needed.

Software
Beginning with version 2.0 the software is compatible with Win 95/98/ME/2000/XP. The windows version of the software is a dynamic data exchange (DDE) server. It provides information on the wavelength and the absorbance readings for either the 600 nm or the 510 nm analysis wavelengths to DDE client programs such as Microsoft Excel or Access. A sample Excel spreadsheet is included to illustrate how data may be accessed by Excel's DDE functions.

Operational
The Radiachromic head has a single slot for the film. Place the film in the slot using round tip tweezers and the computer will signal when the reading is complete. It is not necessary to release the film from the tweezers. This makes the measurements not only easier but much faster than instruments with separate film holders.

The Model FWT-100 Radiachromic readers represent an advanced system for measuring Radiachromic Dosimeters. With this new system, accurate, repeatable measurements are made faster than ever before.
