EPD Mk2 SIM responds to safe electronic sources that simulate ionizing 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. EPD Mk2 SIM is fully compatible with the Argon PlumeSIM system for wide area tactical field and nuclear emergency response exercises enabling you to ensure everyone knows what to do when that emergency comes.
For individual or group training in a restricted environment the EPD Mk2 SIM is supplied with a Local Player unit. Body mounted, this device receives an encoded signal representing specific radionuclides from deployed electronic simulation sources, and transmits simulated radiological activity to the simulator. Based on the actual Thermo EPD Mk2, the EPD Mk2 SIM accurately replicates the appearance, functions and display of the real dosimeter in a safe and practical manner providing your students with perfect EPD training.
Argon simulation systems enable realistic simultaneous training in the use of different types of radiation detection instruments. EPD Mk2 SIM is compatible with other dosimeter, survey/radiac meter, and spectrometer simulators manufactured by Argon Electronics, permitting multi-detector, multi-radionuclide 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.
EPD Mk2 SIM works on the same battery supply as the real dosimeter. The simulators require no preventative maintenance or recalibration, and spares are minimised to reduce cost of ownership. Expensive damage to real detectors is avoided which means operational readiness is maintained.
The EPD Mk2 SIM, as supplied for local training, is also 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. Where local training is not required, EPD Mk2 SIM can be supplied as a PlumeSIM-only simulator.
