The SATURN II monitoring unit’s main component is a compact ratemeter designed for managing and processing signals from the connected area monitoring detector. SATURN II is a modular unit designed to be wall mounted, by means of its supporting lugs, and its layout has been studied to deliver functionality and quality design.
Depending on installation needs, the detector can be installed in the same mechanical module of the ratemeter, or alternatively in a separate one; an alarm module can be added to either of the previously mentioned configurations.
The unit continuously acquires data coming from the detector, processes them and compares results with user defined internally stored threshold parameters.
Possible failure, alarm or prealarm conditions are signalled by means of acoustic, luminous devices and relays. Two user selected measurements can be displayed at the same time on the ratemeter screen, including: istantaneous or average countrate, doserate, activity concentration; counts, dose or activity integrated values.
Measurements, alarm/prealarm thresholds and operating parameters are stored into an internal, non-volatile memory. Thresholds and parameters can be set up by the user by entering a security password that protects the setting menu.
In addition to standard supply, the following options are available upon request:
- Additional alarm unit for remote signalling: model ALU
- Software utility for data archive download: model UTAS (connection cables included)
- Software application for complete remote management of the monitor, featuring a synoptic diagram: model 5700 sMON (connection cables on request)
- Data concentrator PC: model CPC
