RDS-100 / PDR-77 / CDV 718 Radiation Safety Training Simulation Probes

Our Alpha, Beta and Beta  Gamma 3-Probe simulator set provides you with a training system that enables your students to experience the operational features of real Mirion / Canberra probes and also inverse square law and shielding without the need to utilize real radiation sources or radioactive materials.

RDS-100-SIM radiation hazard detection simulator probes
HR_RDS100-SIM (500x600)

The simulation probes respond to safe electromagnetic and magnetic simulation sources that simulate alpha, 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. The Beta Gamma probe is 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.

The  training set comprises three simulation probes for use with the real RDS100 / PDR77 and CDV 718 meters:

  • BG-SIM-P* for training in the use of the Beta Gamma probe
  • A-SIM-P for training in the use of the Alpha probe
  • B-SIM-P for training in the use of the Beta probe

*The BG-SIM-P can also be used with the AN/VDR-2 radiac meter to simulate the DT616/VDR-2 probe. See the Argon 616-SIM literature separately.

Radition safety training with Argon simulation probes

You can safely teach critical search, reconnaissance, sentry, survey/ location and decontamination skills as well as a practical understanding of inverse square law, isodoserate mapping, shielding and safe demarcation.

The BG-SIM-P receives an encoded signal representing specific gamma emitting radionuclides from deployed electromagnetic simulation sources that very realistically provide simulation of inverse square law and shielding, it also responds to magnetic simulation sources that simulate beta sources for training in contamination, cross-contamination and decontamination.

The A-SIM-P and B-SIM-P utilise the safe magnetic simulation sources. 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.

Training in the use of complementary equipment types with common simulation sources

Argon simulation systems enable realistic simultaneous training in the use of different types of radiation detection instruments. The 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.

PlumeSIM – Simulation of wide area tactical and emergency response field exercises

The Beta Gamma sim probe 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.

Cost effective realistic training for your teams

The simulation probes are powered by the  the real radiac meters to which they are connected,  require no preventative maintenance or recalibration therefore reducing the cost of ownership. Expensive damage to real detectors is avoided which means operational readiness is maintained and no need for expensive training sources or associated safety staff!
