Alpha/Beta Air Monitor - Model 334AB Alpha/Beta Air Monitor
Introduction

The Model 334AB is designed to function both as a portable workplace monitor or as a continuous air monitor (CAM) for emergency response situations. The compact and low-weight instrument has an integrated LCD and touchscreen provides information on instrument status and readings during operation. The estimated dose of the isotope(s) of interest and the instrument status are displayed at all times. A display window below may be switched from showing historical readings and battery status or display the current spectrum.

An ion-implanted silicon detector and 1024-channel multi-channel analyzer feeds data to the embedded processor board. Operations include beta detection and alpha spectral analysis for radon compensation. Acquired data may be saved in the instrument’s internal memory, or alternately may be written to an SD card for later retrieval and review. It is stored in comma-separated-variable (*.csv) format that is recognized by most spreadsheet and database software.
