    "For the monitoring of nuclear radiation environment here at the station site in Weiningen (ZH) is a RM-80 dose rate meter from Aware Electronics is used.

    "These units of RM series are used by various universities, professional bodies, and amateur stations are common to U.S. standards 2 tested and calibrated. The device can measure both alpha and beta, as well as gamma and X-rays.

    "The meter is located along with the noise meter outside the building from rain and moisture under the roof in a protective box. There is no particular fan used to suck air to the alpha window (the unshielded part of the Geiger counter) is freely accessible and shows off the building.

    "Every 60 seconds, the RM-80 transmits the measured values obtained by cable to the server station.

    Another two years have passed and the sensors are still working. The filters have not been changed. One of the sensors was recently tested side by side with Radon Scout+, which costs 20 times a much. The results:
    Radon Scout+ versus RM-70 with Fan-Filter
    Radon Scout+ (blue line) reported an average of 206 Bq/m³. My sensor (red line) also reported 206 Bq/m³. This might be a lucky coincident, but it's still reassuring that the accuracy seems good. We can also see that the sensors generally report the same trends, but the data from my sensor appear much smoother and don't appear to pick up all the smaller fluctuations reported by Radon Scout+ (assuming that those are real changes and not noise). Perhaps the reason is that my sensor traps dust and once trapped, the radioactivity will remain for a while even if the air gets replaced. So it will respond a bit slow to actual changes. Anyway, the close similarities between Radon Scout+ and my sensor are reassuring and strongly suggest that the short time trends picked up by my sensors are real. During short tests (a few days or weeks) with Ramon 2.2 there have been differences, and I'm now inclined to think that this is due to inaccuracies in Ramon 2.2 rather than in mine. Ramon 2.2 (which I did use for calibration) seems to require several weeks of operation before the average can be fully trusted.

    Here is a remote site composed of an RM-60, HP Palmtop PC and modem with data displayed on our server updated once per 8 hours by-way-of our Aw-Fetch program. (More info about this site is found below).

    Windows XP RAS Server (Remote Access Server) An example of our newly developed micro RAS RM Server (size of a small toaster oven) equipped with nforce4 MB with heatpipes and SATA drive. Two built in serial ports and a PCI eight port board make 10 serial ports. One of the serial ports is plugged into an external US Robotics modem. Eight of our RM-60 radiation monitors are plugged into eight of the serial ports. Three of our 12 to 24 volt strobe light warning systems are plugged into the same RM serial ports they alarm from. If the PC reboots the software starts up automatically. PMI-30 NaI monitoring is to be added. For the interest of viewers every day or so our office PC phones the server, updates its copies of the rad data using Aw-Trace, prepares the graphs then FTPs the gifs to our web server, at least until the system is moved. At present it is near radiologic services and the peaks show very low normal levels due to operations:

    The above site is running on a server acting as a local server and an internet server and which is also running Aware Electronics software. The Aware Electronics software is composed of our 32 bit windows program Aw-Radw which, besides collecting the radiation data from the RM-60, once every two minutes automatically updates the graphs as seen on the website. See Aw-Radw Questions for more info. about using Aw-Radw to generate real-time graphs on servers for browsers.

  • New York City

    This New York City site has been running continuously for over five years (almost three years before 9/11) without human intervention. It includes an HP 1000CX palmtop PC (a less expensive version of the HP 200LX palmtop PC), a PCMCIA modem and an RM-60. The palmtop PC is running our standard radiation collection software and our Aw-Fetch communications program, which are loaded automatically when the PC reboots. The modem is plugged into a phone line and our Wilmington DE PC automatically contacts the site using our Aw-Fetch program running in batch mode, updates its copy of the real-time radiation data, prepares the data and graphs using Aw-Graph's GIF feature in batch mode, then FTPs the information to our website.

    The RM-60 and palmtop PC are located in a lower level office of the Jacobi Hospital, Nuclear Medicine division. Various small spikes in radiation level can be seen on the graphs as staff carry-out normal day-to-day activities.

    Aware Electronics can provide complete remote radiation monitoring for display on the Internet.

    This service is excellent for any private or public group that desires a secure real-time website display of radiation levels.

    We can provide all that is neccesary, including our standard set of highly efficient Windows software along with custom scripts, to allow real time data and graphing of an unlimited number of radiation monitoring sites, completely contained within the clients set of networked PCs. Aware Electronics has experience setting up such systems and they have proven to be highly reliable and accurate.

    Alternatively we can provide remote radiation data gathering sites that communicate with the client's (or our) server for display of the data on the internet or the client's private network, by-way-of the telephone system, as indicated in the diagrams above regarding the Bronx site, or by CSM modem.

    A GSM modem is a specialized type of modem which accepts a cellular phone SIM card, and operates over a subscription to a cellular mobile operator, just like a cellular mobile phone. From the mobile operator perspective, a GSM modem looks just like a cellular phone.

  • Equipping the LCD-90 with a GSM cellular modem

    If you or your client decide to try this service we are certain you will be very pleased with the results.
