Gamma-Scout Online

The Gamma-Scout hand-held radiation detector or geiger counter is a general purpose survey meter for measuring and detecting ionizing radiation. It can detect alpha, beta, gamma and x-ray radiation.

The Online model can be connected to a Windows PC for real time data downloads to the computer. All the models have the ability to download to a Windows computer but only the Online model does it in real time.
