LC1 Audio/Visual Radiation Warning Unit

Area Radiation Warning Unit

 LC1 Audio/Visual Radiation Warning Unit:

 

  • Portable, low cost, rugged, light weight device, designed for use by personnel working in areas of potential Radiation Risk, such as during pipeline inspections and when working in dedicated X-Ray bays.
  • Provides warning lights and siren to give clear indication of the current work status.
  • A remote radio control handset enables an operator to safely change the warning unit from standby to radiation imminent, at the press of a button.
