Fluke Electronics introduces the 481 Radiation Survey Meter

11-16-F-481_01a_cSydney, May 18, 2011Fluke Electronics, the world leader in compact, professional electronic test and measurement tools, introduces the 481 Radiation Survey Meter for industrial radiation safety.

This simple, easily-deployable hand-held radiation detector lets facility managers quickly check for contamination everywhere it can go, from receiving docks, warehouses, vehicles and packages to people.

The highly-sensitive Fluke 481 is ideal for detecting radiation on goods, equipment, surfaces, or environments in industrial settings to ensure worker safety.

The meters’ ion chamber, preferred over other devices for its precision accuracy, provides quick, accurate readings of skin dose (beta), deep dose (gamma) and x-ray radiation with simple two-button operation.

If radiation is found, a clear and quantifiable result lets managers comply with federal guidelines while avoiding unnecessary steps that might halt operations, impact productivity or lead to lost revenue.

The Fluke 481 works reliably indoors and outdoors thanks to its rugged sealed case and provides more than one week of continuous operation on two easily-replaceable 9-volt batteries. Its automated backlight keeps the meter visible inside truck trailers and other low-light conditions.
