Atom Tag dosimeter-top box (hereinafter - the dosimeter) is designed for the rapid assessment of the radiation situation on the ground, radiation safety control of buildings, premises, vehicles, various objects and materials, detection and localization of sources of ionizing radiation in the home and at work, use in a physical experiment and physical demonstrations, the X-ray radiation, environmental studies.
The dosimeter is a miniature device comprising an ionizing radiation detector (Geiger-Muller), the electronic circuitry necessary for its operation, the air interface standard Bluetooth 4.0 and a lithium-ion battery. For the processing, storage and display of information coming from the sensor uses a built-in microcomputer, and after the transfer of data over the radio interface - a smartphone or tablet running iOS or Android operating system running a special application, available for free download in the AppStore or Google Play.
The dosimeter contains no toxic, hazardous and radioactive materials, and dispose of the dosimeter are safe for humans, animals and the environment.
Communication between the dosimeter and the smart phone or tablet PC is supported via radio Bluetooth 4.0 standard, with the loss of communication device operates autonomously in a customizable thresholds with alarm warning sound and vibration alarm. The data on accumulated over time due to lack of dose stored in the dosimeter and sent to the smartphone or tablet computer at the resumption of communication. In connection with a smart phone or tablet computer, only one dosimeter Atom Tag can be simultaneously connected to a specific application. On smarfone / tablet running android you can set a number of different applications and are respectively connected to each application one by one dosimeter.
To recharge the built-in battery monitor using the USB port of any computer or any device with a USB charger connector and the supplied cable. The instrument used modern energy saving technology, but it should be noted that the frequent use of sound, especially a vibration alarm, and low ambient temperatures significantly reduce the duration of continuous operation of the built-in lithium-ion battery. reducing the built lithium ion battery is below 10% dosimeter will signal this one long and three short beeps, repeated once per minute. In this case, it is recommended built-in lithium-ion battery to fully charge the device for 1 hour using the USB-cable supplied.
Before working with a dosimeter, make sure there is no damage of the dosimeter housing. The dosimeter is not sealed device does not use the appliance under rain or sleet, if necessary measurements protect the device from ingress of water. If water is spilled on or inside the dosimeter switch off the appliance, allow to dry thoroughly and fully recharge before next use. If necessary, keep liquids radiation inspection device at a distance of 1-2 cm from the liquid surface, if necessary, use a plastic bag to avoid contamination of the surface of the dosimeter, but no more than one layer. Do not subject the monitor to strong shocks and squeezing. When moving from cold to warm room to measurements do not proceed until the surface of the device is present condensed moisture. When contamination of the dosimeter wipe the unit with a soft dry cloth. Do not use organic solvents to clean the dosimeter: they may damage the housing. Do not try to disassemble and repair the unit, when a fault is detected, contact our service center. Remember that any attempt at repair could void your warranty for the dosimeter.
Operation. Enabling device
To turn on the dosimeter briefly connect it to the charger or USB-port of a PC using the supplied charging cable. A short beep and dosimeter momentarily vibrates. Turn on bluetooth settings used for your smartphone or tablet.
Install the application using the links:
Atom a Radiometer application: https://goo.gl/SYzAFj
for All Android:
- basic intuitive application for android - Atom Swift app: https://goo.gl/YF3MZ2
- add-on application for android to specialists and to change vibration dosimeter settings inside - AtomNext application: https://goo.gl/yzP7xL
(note: only Atom Swift app for android has ability to record and archive the card )
or by entering in the search bar «Atom Radiometer» in the AppStore, and in Google Play - «Atom Swift» or «AtomNext», respectively. Run the application. After a few seconds, the application will detect all are confident in the communication area included dosimeters and give the user the ability to choose which device to operate at the moment. During the linking process dosimeter will emit a double beep, when the loss of connection - single long beep.
Modes of the dosimeter
Your monitor can operate in two basic modes - the search and measurement. Operating mode selection is performed from within the application. Consider the operation of the device in each of them.
Search mode of the dosimeter is characterised by fast response to changes in the radiation situation, the measurement accuracy is reduced. In the natural background radiation 0.1 mSv / h (10 mR / hr) during a complete changing information exceeds forty seconds. Work in the search mode is recommended when examining the terrain, buildings, building materials, vehicles for radioactive contamination.
In the measuring mode the dosimeter continuously refines the dose rate by displaying information on the statistical error in the measurement of the current session. A new session can be started at any time by pressing the reset button on the screen, all the information about the previous session will be deleted. The measurement mode suited to the detection of inactive objects by comparing the dose rate in the vicinity of the inspected object with the natural background radiation away from it, as well as the need to obtain high accuracy result. To obtain the correct result will not change the position of the instrument during the measurement session. The margin of error decreases with time square, keep in mind that to achieve twice the precision you need four times more time.
The application allows the user to select it convenient for the units, the type and properties of the scale, the threshold is over-power warning dose and the accumulated dose and other parameters. We are constantly working to improve the application and we reserve the right to add features that improve its performance.
Closing of the application
The application after the transfer phone or tablet PC in the standby mode continues to run in the background, supporting communication with the dosimeter and sound and vibration signalling in case of exceeding a predetermined level or dose rate cumulative dose.
After finishing the work, close the application. Before long periods of time the device is recommended to turn off its supply of commands from the application. Keep the monitor in a dry place away from strong heat sources, do not let water get into the unit. Transportation dosimeter in the manufacturer's packaging is possible in any mode of transport without distance limitations.
Responding to the need to turn on and off the device when there is no connection with your smartphone or tablet
If there is no connection with a smartphone or tablet dosimeter operates in the programmed alarm. Thresholds and alarm types are set when there is a link with a smartphone or tablet.
If necessary, turn on or off the device in the absence of a smartphone or tablet, you will need any rod with a diameter of 1.5 to 3 mm, for example a toothpick without tip or rod of a ballpoint pen. Slide the rod into the charging jack on the depth of about 20 mm, and press to set the depth of the device button. In this case, if the monitor was turned off, it will start immediately, confirming the inclusion of sound and vibration signal. If the device was turned on, it emits two short and one long beep when the button is held. To turn off the device power button must be released during a long beep sound. It is most likely that you'll never need to apply/ do above operations.
The manufacturer's warranty
The manufacturer guarantees availability dosimeter within one year from the date of sale when used in accordance with this instruction and no mechanical damage as well as damage caused by water or other liquids into the housing.Warranty and post-warranty repair and replacement of defective dosimeter carries the manufacturer.
