The DT616-SIM simulator probe set provides you with a training system that enables your students to experience the operational features of equivalent Mirion / Canberra DT616/ VDR-2 probe without the need to utilize real radiation sources or radioactive materials.
DT616-SIM responds to safe electronic and magnetic sources that simulate beta and gamma radiation, removing regulatory, environmental, and health and safety concerns for you and your students. You can use the simulation sources anywhere, including within public buildings.
DT616-SIM permits radiological incident instructors to safely teach critical search, reconnaissance, survey/ location and decontamination skills as well as a practical understanding of inverse square law, isodoserate mapping, shielding and safe demarcation.
Whilst the DT616-SIM receives an encoded signal representing specific gamma emitting radionuclides from deployed electronic simulation sources, it also responds to magnetic simulation sources that simulate beta sources for training in contamination, cross-contamination and decontamination.
An instructor remote controller (IRC) is provided in order to simulate the effects of partial or complete decontamination when using magnetic simulation sources, or to simulate probe failure.
The DT616-SIM system is compatible with other dosimeter, survey/radiac meter, and spectrometer simulators manufactured by Argon Electronics, permitting multi-detector, multi-isotope training to take place within the same scenario. You can even optionally include hazardous substance releases including chemical warfare agents to drive HazMat / CW simulation detectors.
The DT616-SIM system is compatible with Argon’s PlumeSIM system. PlumeSIM enables real time instrumented wide area operational training exercises to be conducted using single or multiple simulation device types that respond in the real world to multiple virtual radiation or chemical hazard release events.
DT616-SIM probes are powered by the same battery supply as the M-243/VDR-2 radiac meters to which they are connected. The simulators require no preventative maintenance or recalibration, reducing the cost of ownership. Expensive damage to real detectors is avoided which means operational readiness is maintained.
