Tracerco, part of the Johnson Matthey group, has announced the launch of the ObservaTM radiation area monitoring system. ObservaTM is the latest ground breaking innovation from Tracerco that measures radiation dose rates and helps ensure radiation safety and source security.

Combining several unique technological features, including the wall mounted alarm unit, ObservaTM is ideal for use by the oil and gas industry, the nuclear industry, hospital x-ray facilities and in non-destructive testing environments.

Plug and play probes allow for simple installation, whilst the large, clear interface and sub menus make the device easy to set up and use. ObservaTM gives live radiation dose rate readings from multiple detectors simultaneously, makig it the perfect system for use in larger sites.

ObservaTM is also available with unique software; the email and SMS alarm updates allow the user to have complete control over radiation safety standards and overall source security. Site floor plans can be uploaded into the embedded software module, complete with drag and drop detector positioning. Therefore, it can be personalised to suit the user’s needs.

The ObservaTM system can be accessed remotely, making it particularly suited to offsite monitoring. It also provides recent radiation data history, giving the operator clear evidence of safe working environments in the event of any incidents requiring investigation.

The device can also be supplied with ObservaTM 24/7, a 24 hour monitoring system which ensures that any alarm communication and data logging is secure 24/7 and not susceptible to the instability problems which can affect desktop computers. ObservaTM also runs a back up power supply, so monitoring remains constant even in the event of a power cut.
