The MBD-2 dosimeter is a real-time, self-indicating device that requires no user intervention for operation. It measures and records dose for gamma and neutron. The MBD-2 dosimeter is based upon Mirion Technologies’ patented* Direct Ion Storage (DIS) technology.
The design makes best use of the benefits of passive radiation detection with active, self-reading and recording functionality. The battery powered system includes on-board digital processing to provide dose measurement on an integrated LCD display. The passive radiation detectors are continuously responsive to radiation, with or without the field replaceable main battery.
The internal electronics provide digital memory, data logging, Bluetooth® Low Energy (BLE) wireless communication, Near Field Communication (NFC) and on-board diagnostic testing. All data resides in non-volatile memory, so there is never any danger of losing stored data or configuration settings on battery failure. The diagnostics measure and display battery condition and fault conditions of the device. The user will know when their device is working and when it requires attention.
