Developed as a result of collaboration between Argon and D-tect SYSTEMS, this high fidelity radiological simulator incorporates the menu structure and software processing of the real RDS Base unit meter to ensure you and your students experience the highest possible simulation fidelity.
The safe simulation Beta sources are easily hidden within PPE to simulate contamination while our easy to use decontamination controller permits you to simulate the effect of partial and full decontamination.
Simulation of partial and full decontamination is achieved by use of an easy to use instructor controller. You simply press button 2 if the decontamination process is unsatisfactory and residual contamination will remain. Pressing button 3 will simulate full decontamination while button 1 resets the scenario for the next student.
Available in configurations to display the same units of measurement as your real detector, the RDS SIM accurately simulates the display of the Base Unit detector indicating the dose rate, status of the meter with user configurable audio / visual alarm threshold settings.
Full simulation of the Gamma and Beta detection is implemented including the function of the Beta window. You can configure our simulation sources and PlumeSIM to represent a radionuclide threat comprising Gamma and Beta so that your students can practice monitoring and assessing the Beta / Gamma components of their reading.
We use the actual RDS case, display, sounder and switch panel ensuring all of the visual characteristics and ergonomic / human factors user interfaces are replicated with 100% accuracy to provide the highest quality training.
The simulator is powered by commercially available Alkaline batteries and is designed to require no preventative maintenance or regular calibration ensuring low ongoing cost of ownership.
The RDS SIM is compatible with Argon’s PlumeSIM system and a range of other Argon simulators. This enables multi-detector and multi-threat training within the same operational scenario. A range of simulation probes to support the RDS SIM shall also be developed.
