Aware Electronics RM-60 Versus Digilert


One of the many advantages of Aware's line of RMs versus just about all other detectors in their class is our meticulous selection and use of specialty wire mesh for the Alpha-Beta-X-Ray window protection. In addition Aware Electronics monitors include an exclusive discriminator. (See: Aware Electronics exclusive radiation monitor design provides detection capabilities 1000 Times Higher than many of our competitors) The result is nearly double the detection sensitivity to Alphas, Betas and lower energy Gammas and X-rays.
RM-60 and Digilert

"The RM-60 count rate rose to 231 counts per minute while the Digilert count rate rose to 149 counts per minute – over 10 X background. Inserting a piece of paper reduced the count rate for the RM-60 but did not seem to have as large an effect on the Digilert. Moving the Geigers and the balloon changes the count rate. To test this further the balloon was folded to provide 8 layers over the window area. This increased the count rate to 340 CPM for the RM-60 and 245 for the Digilert"

"Aligning the RM-60 Geiger window with the rear element of a Mamiya/Sekor 50 mm SLR lens provides ~ 2500 counts per minute for the RM-60 and ~ 1900 counts per minute for the Digilert"
