VF is launching a modernized version of the PNM-02 portable neutron dose equivalent rate monitor on October 1, following comprehensive development and testing.
The detection components of the PNM-02 monitor are again the proven He-3 tube and polyethylene moderation sphere, with high sensitivity to neutrons in a wide energy range and with a low response to gamma background.
The modernized monitor is mainly characterized by lower weight, more compact dimensions and an integrated battery, which ensures a significantly longer operating time (up to 200 hours).
The new PNM-02 also stores measured values every minute in an archive with a capacity of up to half a year of operation. The archive can be exported to a file on a PC.
