The 44-9-SIM detector simulator probe set provides you with a training system that enables your students to experience the operational features of equivalent Ludlum’s 44-9 GM pancake-type detector without the need to utilize real radiation sources or radioactive materials.
44-9-SIM responds to safe magnetic sources that simulate short range alpha or 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.
44-9-SIM permits radiological incident instructors to safely teach survey/location and decontamination skills. The 44-9-SIM responds to deployed magnetic simulation sources that simulate short range alpha or beta radiation for training in contamination, cross-contamination and decontamination, and virtual alpha, beta, and gamma simulation when used with PlumeSIM.
An instructor remote controller (pictured below) 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 44-9-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.
44-9-SIM probes are powered by two user-replaceable AA alkaline batteries. 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.
The 44-9-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.
