    Aware Electronics Corp. uses a unique technique for generating the high voltage needed by radiation monitors. We have custom designed a miniature high voltage transformer which includes three windings, a primary, secondary and feedback winding, allowing us to create our unique, fully regulated very high efficiency high voltage harmonic oscillator power supply.

    Aware's harmonic oscillator utilizes the natural rhythm of the transformer’s inductance and a capacitor to step-up the low voltage source to a high voltage by-way-of the turns ratio of the primary to secondary. The primary winding of our transformer includes approximately 8 turns and the secondary includes over 2000 turns, thereby stepping up the voltage needed with just two diodes, even with a 1.5 volt input. (Input voltage can range from 1.5 to 20 VDC). Aware's new HV harmonic oscillator is also very low noise due to the transformer's primary winding tank circuit.

    All active components of the high voltage generator are rugged bipolar silicon devices, including the components in the regulating sub-system. Many competitor systems utilize mosfets which can be very sensitive to voltage spikes.

    A major advantage of Aware’s high voltage feedback oscillator: The transistor is exposed to only the supply voltage (1.5 to 16 VDC) rather than the several hundred volts of the boost converter technique used by most other radiation monitor suppliers. Aware Geiger counters, with our custom high voltage generator, have been running continuously now for over 27 years and not a single transistor has failed.

    Power Transistor Crystal Damage in Inductive Load Switching: A Reliability Concern. International Business Machines Corporation, Poughkeepsie, N. Y.

    A high-voltage n-p-n--n+ type power transistor switching an inductive load for approximately 1000 hours showed no significant variation in the electrical parameters. Infrared scanning, and cross-sectioning and visual inspection of the chip indicated a crystal damage at the n--n+ interface under the center of the emitter. Transmission electron microscopy (TEM) investigations revealed the crystal damage to consist mainly of silicon phosphide precipitate platelets surrounded by dislocation loops and dislocation clusters. An analysis using a two-dimensional mathematical model predicts high electrical and thermal stresses at the damaged location of power transistor during its switching applications.

    Conclusion: For longevity and high accuracy choose Aware Electronics line of Radiation Monitors and software.

    Software Updates

    Purchasers of the Aw-Radw Windows program Aw-Radw are entitled to free updates which include updates of Aw-Srad, Aw-Fast and Aw-Graph: Aw-Radw Updates

    LATE ADDITION: Alarm Software-Solid State Relay kit
    Chop off those Radon peaks.

    Aware Electronics Corp. has available a special version of the radiation software (both the standard collection and display software AW-SRAD.EXE and the TSR program AW-MRAD.COM), which brings a pin high in the serial port when the radiation alarm level is exceeded. All other aspects of the software are identical to the standard set, including the scrolling bar charts. This special software package is called Alarm Software Package.

    As with the standard software set, the alarm level is compared to the average radiation level for any time period desired (user settable). Also the software can automatically start from the autoexec.bat file, so even if power fails and then PC reboots, the software will automatically start.

    This allows the user to carry out many useful functions. For example, a user may wish to control a Radon mitigation fan or HEPA room fan-filter. To do so, he could plug an RM-60, 70 or 80, with or without the Aware Fan-Filter add-on into a PC (any IBM clone including XTs, 200LX Palm Top, etc.). He would tap the serial port output pin (same serial port that the RM unit is plugged into), and connect this lead along with signal ground, to the input of a solid state relay, then connect the output of the relay in-line with the power cord to the mitigation fan or HEPA filter fan. Now, every time the average radiation level exceeds the alarm set point, the solid state relay will start the mitigation or HEPA filter fan. When levels drop below the set point, the fan will deactivate. (See user's page for user's experience User's Page

    Price of the Alarm Software package (part # ASP-1) is $45 when purchased with an RM unit or as an update, and $49 when purchased separately.

    Also available: Solid State Relay Kit (part # SSRK-1) which "snaps" in-line with the telephone cable running from the PC to the RM unit (RM-60, 70, 80, PMI-30, etc.). The Solid State Relay kit contains an opto-isolated solid state relay (with zero crossing triac, input: 3 to 30 volts, 1ma/V; output: 24 to 280 VAC, 10 amps max.) mounted in an ABS box (4.4"x2.44"x1.06"; ABS includes flame retardant), with surface mount MOD jack - wiring box fused to ABS box for easy snap-in connection to the PC serial port adapter included with the RM unit.

    Input circuit includes current limiting diode, to keep current draw from serial port to a minimum. Kit is completely wired, ready to snap in-line with cable from RM unit. All user need do is wire in the mitigation or HEPA filter fan power lead (for example use an extension cord, cut one lead and wire to heavy duty output screw terminals on solid state relay, within the ABS box). Also included: Six feet six conductor telephone cable to run from the PC to the box. Cost of the Solid State Relay kit: $99 If you would like us to wire in a 120 volt plug and socket, add $25.

    Note: All serial port adapters shipped with RM units for the last few years have included wiring of the proper pins for the Alarm software. If your RM unit is older than a few years, we'll include two new adapters, no charge.
