Product Description

S.E. International Radiation Alert Inspector USB has built in efficiencies for common isotopes to calculate activity in Bequerels and DPM. It is optimized to detect small changes (low levels) in radiation levels and to have high sensitivity to many common radionuclides. The new back lit display shows readings in your choice of counts per minute (CPM), counts per second (CPS) uSv/hr, mR/hr, or in accumulated counts. The Inspector USB counts ionizing radiation changes, and the unit of measurement is selected and displayed using the mode switch. The display shows various indicators, based on the mode setting, the function performed, and remaining battery power. These include low battery, alert, timer, total mode calibration mode, utility menu (timer, calibration, alarm set mode), and units of measurement. Reading ranges: 0.001 (1&muR) to 100.00 mR/hr, or 0 to 350000 CPM, or 0.01 to 1000 µSv/hr, 0 to 5000 CPS, total counts 9999000 µSv/hr. Calibration: Calibrated electronically using the free Observer USB software. Accuracy: MR/hr + or - 10 percent (NIST), + or -15 percent maximum 0 to 100, µSv/hr + or - 10 percent (NIST), + or - 15 percent maximum 0.01 to 1000, CPM + or - 10 percent (NIST), + or -15 percent maximum 0 to 350000. It has a factory default calibration reset option that will automatically reset to auto averaging, mR/hr, CPM, and CAL (calibration) 100. Energy sensitivity: 3340 CPM/mR/hr, referenced to Cesium (Cs) 137. Energy sensitivity detects alpha down to 2.0 MeV. It detects beta at 0.16 MeV with typical 25 percent detection efficiency at 1 MeV. It detects gamma down to 10 keV through the end window. It detects gamma and x-rays down to 10 keV typical through the window, and 40 keV minimum through the sidewall. GM tube: A halogen-quenched, uncompensated GM tube with an effective diameter of 1.75-inches. Normal background radiation: approx 10 to 20 CPM. The meter will hold at full-scale in fields as high as 100 times the maximum reading for anti-saturation. The meter is powered by a 9-volt alkaline battery (not included).

The Inspector USB is the newest version of The Inspector radiation detectors. It's essentially a Geiger counter, but the numerous features puts it far beyond the "lunchbox" luggable models of yesteryear. I used the previous version (Inspector Plus) and loved that I could get so much out of something that fits in a large coat pocket. This unit has the same 2 inch "pancake" tube as the older versions, but now they've stepped it up a bit with the addition of on board memory, built in efficiencies, and free (Let me say that again, FREE!!!!) Observer USB Software. I liked the previous version quite a bit, but I straight up LOVE this one.

I'm able to set the time and date and download all of my surveys to my computer and open them up in Excel. I did have some trouble doing this at first because the data logging isn't turned on when you get the unit. You have to go into the Utility Menu, set the time and date, and then turn on the recording feature. Once I got that going, I was off and running.

One thing I really like about this product is the ability to take timed counts. I can establish background radiation levels much more accurately with this and, if I used a wipe test plate, I would be able to take timed counts with swipes and what not. With the older versions, you have to attach these metal rails to the back of the detector before you can use the wipe test plate, but this version had the groves for capturing it built right into the back of the enclosure.

Given that I don't use the wipe test plate, I opted for their "Xtreme Boot", which is a rubber overlay that adds a bit of protection for the instrument.

The large detector is great, but not usable at moderately high altitudes. If you are traveling above 8000 ft. altitude, the detector will break, so be warned. The other warning they do not advertise, but noted in the operator's manual, is that it will not work at temperatures over 100F. so don't try using it in Death Valley, midday during the summer months.
It is a great instrument, but beware of prospecting for cool uranium minerals at high altitudes in the Eastern Sierra.
I keep mine in an air-tight box when crossing high mountain passes.

Verified Purchase
I purchased this detector 3 months ago after considering several others. This one was a few more dollars than some but it has a pancake style G-M tube which has a larger surface area for detection, which make it very accurate. This unit is one of the best, if not the best, available in this price range that I have found. I have done an extensive amount of research on radiation and detectors since my purchase and I am convinced I made the best choice.
I won't go into further details since the reviews by "Concerned Citizen" and "MJ23447" were very good and accurate.
