The CoMo 170 simulator responds to safe magnetic sources that safely simulate Alpha and Beta 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.
The CoMo 170 Simulator permits radiological incident instructors to safely teach survey, location and decontamination skills. The simulator responds to deployed 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.
Argon simulation systems enable realistic simultaneous training in the use of different types of radiation hazard detection instruments. The CoMo 170 simulator 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 CoMo 170 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.
The CoMo 170 is powered by the same battery supply as the real radiac meter. 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.
