Next-generation ambient dosimetry
RiumBox is a fixed ionizing radiation measurement device for ambient dosimetry.
The sensor is calibrated to calculate the ambient dose equivalent rate H*(10).
This fixed dosimeter plugs into a 220 V power supply and transmits data by WiFi, 4G (optional IP67 watertight and dust-resistant), or Ethernet. Real-time ambient radiation dose monitoring is provided on the RiumApp web platform.
The ambient dosimetry system is an effective alternative to passive dosimeters and fixed dosimeters. It allows area-by-area rather than individual monitoring.
An ambient dosimetry monitoring system with unique benefits
When workers are made more aware of radiation risk, risk management is more effective and pragmatic: the web app tracks and logs all measurements for better risk management and analysis and more effective identification of radiation-related events.
Each area is continuously monitored, making area perimeters and individual workstation monitoring more reliable and secure.
Cost savings on managing passive dosimeters and troubleshooting: you no longer need to read, log, send, and redistribute passive dosimeters. Our ionizing radiation sensors are fixed. Measurements are taken and displayed on our web or mobile app in real time.
Our dosimeters transmit measurement data to our web app. And the web app can centralize management of several facilities or locations. Unlike other radiation sensors on the market, Icohup products can measure dose rate and complete a spectrometric analysis simultaneously. Our ambient dosimeters generate visible (light) and audible alerts to ensure that all workers are aware of the radiation levels present in the area monitored in real time.
What the latest radiation protection regulations say
The EU Euratom Directive, which establishes the standard of protection against ionizing radiation in the workplace, came with a national transposition deadline of 2018 and included the following guidance for legislation concerning radiation protection consultants and employers:
- The radiation protection consultant provides recommendations on the design, modification, and layout of workspaces and safety equipment and systems intended to prevent ionizing-radiation-related risks.
- The consultant also provides support with developing and implementing the appropriate ways and means of prevention, and, especially, determining maximum doses and the physical areas for which doses will be measured; and developing and implementing individual exposure monitoring systems and procedures for workers in conjunction with the occupational physician.
- Employers are required to implement appropriate preventive measures to minimize or eliminate ionizing-radiation-related risks to workers. These measures must take into account technical advances and the availability of techniques to control radiation risk at the source.
