The MIP 10 Digital unit is a standalone and resistant device adapted to various environments such as laboratories, industrial facilities, and open air yards. It is widely used for alpha and beta contamination (hands, clothes, worktops) and nearby nuclear facilities.
The MIP 10 Digital device is a versatile alarm desktop dose rate and survey meter. Its large base of associated probes covers numerous applications. The MIP 10 Digital unit is a standalone and resistant device adapted to various environments such as laboratories, industrial facilities, and open air yards. It is widely used for alpha and beta contamination (hands, clothes, worktops) and nearby nuclear facilities. It is also used for gamma irradiation measurements in nuclear reactors, accelerators, irradiators and Curie therapy instruments.
The MIP 10 Digital unit comes with two probe inputs, one dedicated to the previous generation Mirion probes (Nardeux) and one to the Canberra™ Smart Probes (CSP), hence allowing connection of two probes at a time. By ensuring compatibility with both generation probes, the MIP 10 Digital device allows a smooth transition for users who are using Nardeux probes and want to move to CSP probes.
The MIP 10 Digital unit integrates rechargeable batteries to prevent any measurement outage when performing critical controls. The MIP 10 Digital device is fully functional when disconnected from mains, allowing for remote work in field sites for up to 40 hours.
With its metal housing and rugged keyboard, the MIP 10 Digital unit is built to resist harsh environment conditions like the original MIP 10 instrument. Its dimensions that are identical to MIP 10 unit make it compatible with accessories and allow it to be stacked with other MIP 10 units.
The MIP 10 Digital device brings new key features including a fast-reacting digital readout bargraph, customizable alarm set point per probe (or range of probe for Nardeux probes), with many measurement units: c/s, Bqeq, Bqeq/cm2, Sv/h, Sveq/h (depending on CSP probe connected), and new Scaler/Timer mode with 1 to 1000 seconds acquisition time.
With CSP units, key components of hardware circuitry (high voltage, amplifier, discriminator, etc.) are located directly inside the probe's housing rather than the host survey instrument. Also, the intelligence associated with controlling those components is located in the probe - that is, control and storage of key parameters, settings, calibrations, probe ID, alarm settings, etc. Thus the probe is a fully integrated subsystem, taking and transmitting the measurement to the instrument, which is used for display.
With high voltage and digitization of the data occurring in the probe rather than the instrument, measurement quality is no longer dependent on cable quality as with older analog systems. Also, the probes can be plugged in "hot" without powering down the survey meter - the instrument immediately recognizes the probe and automatically switches measurement mode to the mode required for that specific probe. Calibrations and QA measurements can also be performed directly with the probe, without even using the instrument, by connecting the probe to a computer with calibration software, allowing the MIP 10 Digital unit to remain deployed in the field.
