Ⅰ. Product Introduction
TK-202 portable NaI gamma energy spectrometer has nuclide recognition, dose rate measurement and activity measurement and other functions. In the nuclide recognition, the tAime sequence analysis technology, fuzzy clustering technology and energy spectrum analysis technology are adopted, making the radionuclide recognition sensitivity higher in magnitude than that of the international similar products, which is the new generation of product in the similar products. TK-202 consists of NaI detectors, the host and the data analysis software. The detector and the host are connected together over Bluetooth, and they can be detached for remote measurement. The host uses a touch screen display that greatly simplifies instrument operation. TK-202 can identify 40K, 214Bi and 208Tl and other nuclides in the environment in real time, and uses the 609KeV ray of 214Bi, the 1460.8KeV ray of 208Tl, and the 2614.5KeV ray of 208Tl for fast and accurate energy calibration of the measurement system, which is the state-of-the-art energy calibration technology in the current environmental radiation monitoring.
Ⅱ. Main Features
l TK-202 has gamma radioactive nuclide identification, dose and dose rate measurement, activity measurement and other functions.
l TK-202 has the highest sensitivity on the gamma radionuclide recognition among the similar products in the world, and is a highly sensitive hand-held nuclide identification meter having the national independent innovation design. Thanks to the use of time series analysis technology, fuzzy clustering technology and energy spectrum analysis technology, its radionuclide recognition sensitivity is higher than that of the international similar products, with the typical indicators (with 2-inch NaI probe) as follows: "For 137Cs, when the dose rate is higher than 60% of the environmental background dose rate, the nuclide recognition time is not more than 0.7 seconds; when the dose rate is higher than 30% of the environmental background dose rate, the nuclide recognition time is not more than 7 seconds; for 241Am, when the dose rate is higher than 10% of the environmental dose rate, the nuclide recognition time is not more than 5 seconds; when the dose rate is higher than 20% of the environmental dose rate, the nuclide recognition time is not more than 0.7 seconds; for 60Co, when the dose rate is higher than 80% of the environmental dose rate, the nuclide recognition time is not more than 9 seconds.”
l The system is equipped with a characterized TK-105-B scintillation detector sourceless efficiency calibration software that allows the user to quickly measure radioactivity in situ when detecting artificial radionuclides.
