Compact, advanced technologies allow this powerful radiation detector to fit in the palm of your hand! The Onyx Radiation Detector detects alpha, beta, and gamma radiation with the same sensitivity as larger devices. This radiation detector can also work in conjunction with its very own smart phone app, so you can share your data on your social network!
ONYX Radiation Detector
Born from the multinational response to the Fukushima nuclear radiation disaster and employing design and manufacturing expertise from around the globe comes a revolutionary new radiation detector.
ONYX features a modern, streamlined look and the use of advanced technologies, making it a one-of-a-kind Geiger Counter. It weighs only 7 oz. (200g.) and measures a mere 5.1 X 2.6 X 0.9 in. (72 X 37 X 13 mm.) making it easy to transport. Despite its compact size ONYX is capable of detecting alpha, beta and gamma radiation with the same sensitivity as many larger radiation detectors on the market. ONYX is optimized for surface contamination measurements through use of its 2 in. pancake Geiger Mueller tube.
The six button touch sensitive keypad allows easy use of a wide variety of functions such as graphic display of data, adjustment of audio chirp, data logging, changing units of measurement and calibration. ONYX also permits the user to upgrade the software running on the device to the latest version using a simple internet download feature.
Data are easy to read in a variety of formats (milliroentgens per hour, counts per minute, micro Sieverts per hour and total counts) on the 128 X 128 color OLED display that measures 1.88 in. (47.9mm.) diagonally. In addition, ONYX is designed to share data through its micro-USB port. Twitter data are transferred using QR code displayed on the OLED in combination with a smart phone with a QR Code scanner.
Please use the below Apps to keep your Onyx firmware up to date, to set time and date, to access your data, to continuously monitor radiation levels, and more.
