RDS-100-SIM probes respond to safe electronic and magnetic 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. RDS-100-SIM 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 BG-SIM-P can also be used with the M-243/VDR-2 radiac meter to simulate the DT616/VDR-2 probe. See the Argon 616-SIM literature separately.
RDS-100-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 BG-SIM-P 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.
The A-SIM-P and B-SIM-P utilise the same 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.
Argon simulation systems enable realistic simultaneous training in the use of different types of radiation detection instruments. RDS-100-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 RDS-100-SIM system 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.
RDS-100-SIM probes are powered by the same battery supply as the real 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.
