Description of Dosimeter scintillation RadiaCode-101 with spectrometer function

RadiaCode-101 is a representative of a fundamentally new generation of household dosimeters. New in 2021 based on a scintillation sensor. RadiaCode-101 evaluates the radiation situation by the power of ionizing radiation, reacting to X-ray, gamma radiation and beta particle flux. The model is characterized by ultra-high (instantaneous) measurement speed (which is 20-30 times higher than the speed of conventional dosimeters) and the ability to determine the radioactive substance of the radiation source (isotope) using gamma spectrometry technology (this function is also not available in conventional dosimeters). In addition, the device is able to build a track of movement around the area indicating the level of radiation at each point of the track: during a Bluetooth connection with a smartphone, RadiaCode-101 links the results of measurements of the radiation level to the coordinates of the area and displays them in the smartphone on a Google map. Long battery life (up to 500 hours on a single charge Li-pol battery 1000 mAh). Convenient connection to a PC, as well as charging from the network using a modern type-C USB cable. Increased spray and dust protection of the housing (class IP64) make the device a reliable companion in almost any situation. Comfortable auto-illumination of the monochrome display in the dark. Now it has become much easier to control the level of radiation (including checking food products for radiation contamination)! as a beta version; its development is under active development). Ultra-compact dimensions and minimal weight allow the device to be placed in a sports case on the shin - closer to the surface of the investigated soil or road surface, and the visual control of the detected radiation can be carried out using a smartphone or simply focus on the sound and/or vibration alarm. The dose rate estimation range is 0.1 - 1,000 μSv/h.

High-quality product, the price corresponds to the quality.

An excellent search dosimeter, quickly responds to gamma radiation sources, shows the spectrum and everything is also displayed on a smartphone, written in a magazine. I recommend!

  • Reaction speed, gamma spectroscopy, card recording capability, battery
  • The absence of a strap and a case, sees only gamma radiation. The sound of the alarm in the smartphone scared the volume))

I like the product, the quality didn't let me down.

The device is good. If someone really needs it, I recommend buying it. Dose and spectrum shows. How well I can not say - I'm not an expert. But if you just leave it on, it will periodically remind you of yourself by triggering an alarm about exceeding the level. Perhaps this is the other side of sensitivity.

  • Small size and weight. Long battery life, Reaction speed. Type-C connector
  • Constant false alarms, "buggy" a couple of times - it was solved by turning off the device.

The first cesium-doped scintillator dose doped with gallium. Fast, compact, can be used both on a smartphone (so far only Android) and from a PC. It measures only gamma, it is useless against alpha, beta can only be detected by indirect gamma. Be sure to take a case, as when falling, the crystal may shift and the spectrum will move out.

  • - Form factor, very small, compact and convenient device - Excellent battery life - Tracking on the map with the ability to add a track to the dosemap — Active software support and chat with developers — Spectrometer!
  • — Price - Bugs on WIn11

They have been feeding breakfasts about software for apple for almost a year. Without it, it's empty. When you try to inquire about the timing of development in the telegram channel, trolls will jump up and call you a minority, which it’s time to score completely, and then the holivar will begin .

  • I was tempted by a cool application on my phone, I read in the description that software for my gadget will soon be released.
  • The music didn't last long. The manufacturer scored on software for apple.

A good product, more pros than cons.

Speckrom did not learn to use. The device is quite sane for monitoring. Recently, during the rain at night, I began to show up to 30 micro-roentgens on the street in the rain, I was very surprised. I bring home, 9 units, on the street from 23 on the grass, to 30+ over a puddle. It definitely doesn't look like a glitch. The next day everything is fine. Mystery for me.

  • Nimble, does not overload at higher doses of 1000 microroentgens, unlike cheaper ones. If you do not use sound and vibration, then it lasts up to a month, and if you use it, it lasted me a maximum of 5 days. Perhaps until the battery was overclocked.
  • I watched comparisons with other more expensive counterparts, subjectively understates by 2.5 units. But it will not be different, only 1 cubic cm of the sensor, and not 3, as in another similar and 2 times expensive device.

I myself am the owner of the main competitor - AtomFast. In my case, this is the old sample 4735. I think that the appearance of the RadiaCode device on the market is the right decision, because AtomFast manufacturers increase the cost of their devices every year, while not adding anything new either to the device itself or to the smartphone application. In general, competition is always for the better. But now I like RadiaCode much more, and it costs almost 2 times less than AtomFast.

  • The presence of a screen. The presence of a spectrometer. The android application is very developed, a lot of things can be customized. You can mark the GPS track on the map with the indication of the dose rate.
  • I would like to have a place on the case for attaching the strap. The monitoring mode, which shows the current dose rate, works a little strange. It seems to be a little late: the GPS track shows values ​​that are larger than those that I saw on the screen of the dosimeter itself (I carried it in my hand).

I didn't expect the quality to be so high.

I like it, good stuff. Pros: Compact, lightweight. It works for a long time, I spent three weeks in my desk turned on, all this time I was drawing the radiation spectrum, a quarter of the charge was still left. It works quickly, scintillation, after all, albeit with a small crystal. Its cons: There is not enough GPS module in order to shoot a track without the help of a phone. In the application, the map is rather slow, and the application itself with an interface, as if from 2022. Yes, you can

Despite the shortcomings, the device provides simply fantastic functionality for its money! Moreover, half of the shortcomings will eventually be eliminated in the next firmware and editions of the instructions. Those who buy the device now will be able to download the ate later without any problems and get accurate dose readings that take into account the radiation spectrum. Well, how to use the spectrum scale is already clear from my review, and they will probably add it to the next…

  • - High sensitivity to gamma radiation. - The ability to measure the spectrum of gamma radiation, both when connected to external devices, and using the device autonomously. - Compact dimensions. - Long, weeks, time of continuous operation without recharging. - Unprecedentedly low, as for such functionality, price.
  • - On the seemingly rounded case there are sharp edges. - There is no account of the radiation spectrum when measuring the dose. Because of this, the device can give a significant error even in everyday situations. So, for example, as you can see in the attached photo, on my table the RadiaCode 101 shows 02022 µSv/h, while the RadiaScan 701 lying close, which has travel compensation with stiffness, only 02022 µSv/h. At the same time, it cannot be said that the 101st always overstates by one and a half times, no. It depends on the spectrum of gamma radiation in a particular place. Theoretically, in some cases, it can even slightly (really not very important) underestimate the readings, and in other cases it will overestimate the readings by an order of magnitude. The manufacturer is aware of the problem and is working on creating new firmware, but this is a complex engineering task, so it will take some more time to create it. In the meantime, the ate hasn’t been released, just don’t forget to check the spectrum: if the radiation peak is to the left of the first division of the scale, falls at energies less than 100 keV, then the device may overestimate the readings, you shouldn’t worry too much about the increased numbers. - Although the device is able to show the radiation spectrum on its screen, the energy scale is not signed. Can you figure out which isotope spectra are in the photographs? It seems that no . Because. Since the isotopes were known to me in advance, I was able to determine what each was on the scale. is 100 keV, each | is 500 keV, and each ^ is 1000 keV. Why isn't this in the manual? Riddle . I hope they will add it in the next edition. Yes, don't forget to use both linear and logarithmic modes. As you can see in the photos, the 1461 keV peak from potassium-40 is only visible in logarithmic. - Although the device responds to pure beta emitters, at least to strontium-90, but its sensitivity to them is very low. It, in fact, captures not the beta radiation itself, but the secondary X-ray radiation that occurs when fast electrons interact with matter.

The item is average, not sure if it's worth the money.

Has some pros: small, cool, blinking lights, the presence of a spectrometer. Different cons: there is no spectrum acquisition mode for a given time, not the entire declared energy range works. greatly overestimates the dose rate readings

June is the middle of the year, but it is already clear that this device will become a dosimeter in 2022 and most likely in 2022, since it will be problematic even to copy such a cool thing in the coming years. Especially among manufacturers praying for the SBM20-1 sensor from the 50s of the last century, Rodniki, Radexy, Soeksy. Here we already have a detector on a crystal on board + a spectrometry function and drawing radioactive tracks on maps. Lightning fast response speed. I have…
