The wide range probe MERCURY GMP WR is composed by 2 energy-compensated Geiger-Müller detectors for wide-range gamma fields measurements, housed in a high-protection cylindrical aluminum case together with the HV and processing electronics. The measurement range can be further extended from 10 nSv/h to 10 Sv/h in the MERCURY GMP WR-L version.
The switching between the 2 GM tubes is automatically controlled by the internal electronics, which continuously surveys the counts level (anti-saturation and input selection).
The aluminum case has a protection grade IP65 for the indoor version.
The case is made of PVC for the outdoor version and the protection grade IP68 makes possible to install the probe outdoor granting its safety and functioning. It is also provided with the wall mounting accessory.
MERCURY GMP WR is connected to the ratemeter of the SATURN series, through a serial communication. The ratemeter receives and processes the data from the detector, performs the analysis and comparison with the thresholds, displays the results and the status through proper signals.
Several MERCURY probes, each connected to a SATURN ratemeter, can be inter-connected to form a multi-point measurement network (monitoring system).
MERCURY GMP WR is a low energy consumption probe, so it has a long operating time if power supply is provided by an external battery.
PS-ZB module can be provided upon request: it provides local power supply to the connected MERCURY probe as well as ZIGBEE Wireless communication.
Upon request, a GPS can be installed in the PS-ZB too.
