Personal radiation monitor with Bluetooth connectivity launched

Published:  14 October, 2016

Flir Systems has announced the launch of the Identifinder R100 personal radiation detector, the latest addition to its Identifinder R-Series handheld radiation security solutions. 

The belt-worn R100 integrates networking capabilities to safeguard firefighters, law enforcement, and military and security personnel by delivering immediate radiation threat alarms and providing automatically-generated radiation dose rate reports to offer increased situational awareness to central command personnel.

The Identifinder R100 is a IP67-certified and American National Standards Institute (ANSI) drop-test compliant personal radiation detector. The device meets the 1.5M drop criteria required by ANSI N42.32, one of the key performance standards for alarming PRDs in Homeland Security.

IP67 rated, the R100 is protected against dust and immersion in water up to 1-metre depth. The unit features integrated Bluetooth Smart wireless technology which facilitates recording and sending real-time dose rates and geotag information via a companion mobile app.     

The R100 joins the Identifinder product family in offering a range of radiation security solutions, from threat detection to threat identification. All Identifinder models, including the Identifinder R100, share the same user interface, which enables coordinated emergency response between law enforcement, firefighters, and Hazmat teams using any identifinder product.  

‘As the only ANSI drop-test -compliant and IP67-certified personal radiation detector, the R100 is the industry’s most rugged personal radiation detector for first responders,’ said Dennis Barket, vice president and general manager of Flir Detection. ‘When deployed across teams, the R100 provides a primary detection net that protects the frontline against radiological threats, while the integrated networking features eliminate communication blind spots for central command.’ 

The Identifinder will be available globally in January 2017.
