RDS 200 Radiation Training Simulator

We can now offer you the opportunity to upgrade your existing Argon RDS-200-SIM to our latest generation Gamma simulation technology. Also, because the  Mirion RDS 200 is no longer available, we can convert your spare operational RDS200 into a superb training simulator so your teams can experience every operational feature of the real detector without the need for an ionizing radiation source.

radiation hazard detection simulator RDS-200-SIM from Argon

RDS-200-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.  

RDS-200-SIM enables you to provide high quality survey meter training:

  • Responds to safe ultrasound simulation Gamma sources
  • Easy to set up radiation hazard exercises for HazMat response exercises and training scenarios
  • Good simulation of inverse square law
  • Can be used to demonstrate the principles of shielding
  • All RDS200 functions maintained
  • No need to reset the simulator if 10Sv dose exceeded
  • Can be used with GMP-11-SIM simulation Beta contamination probe
  • Compatible with the Argon PlumeSIM wide-area exercise system

RDS-200-SIM simulates:

  • Logarithmic analogue bar graph display
  • The status of the meter and alarm threshold settings
  • Numeric display to show the dose rate, the dose, and the number of pulses

Radiation safety training with RDS-200-SIM and GMP-11-SIM

RDS-200-SIM permits radiological incident instructors to safely teach critical search, reconnaissance, survey and location skills as well as a practical understanding of inverse square law, isodoserate mapping, shielding and safe demarcation. Whilst the RDS-200-SIM receives an encoded signal representing specific gamma emitting radionuclides from deployed electronic simulation sources, the compatible GMP-11-SIM responds to fluorescent powder and liquid materials that simulate beta sources for training in contamination, cross-contamination and decontamination.

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. RDS-200-SIM 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 RDS-200-SIM 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.

Cost effective realistic training for your teams

RDS-200-SIM works on the same battery supply as the real dosimeter, which also powers the GMP-11-SIM when 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.
