Berkeley Nucleonics Introduces WiFi-SAM Wireless Adapter for Isotope Identifier to Simplify Personal Radiation Detection Disposition

Share Article

Berkeley Nucleonics Corporation is introducing a WiFi-SAM, a WiFi (802.11) kit for the SAM Isotope Identifier (RIID). The wireless adapter provides a continuous data feed over local wifi networks to a network administrator or management team. Isotope Identifiers are often used by first responders or Hazmat technicians who may desire guidance from Radiation Safety or Health Physics management. The integration of WiFi in the SAM 940 Defender and SAM 940 Revealer allow multiple experts to view the data concurrently and in real time.

Berkeley Nucleonics Corporation is introducing a WiFi-SAM, a WiFi (802.11) kit for the SAM Isotope Identifier (RIID). The wireless adapter provides a continuous data feed over local wifi networks to a network administrator or management team. Isotope Identifiers are often used by first responders or Hazmat technicians who may desire guidance from Radiation Safety or Health Physics management. The integration of WiFi in the SAM 940 Defender and SAM 940 Revealer allow multiple experts to view the data concurrently and in real time.

The Wifi-SAM Kit is compatible with existing systems running version 7, Eagle+ or Eagle Asia operating systems but requires a retrofit at the factory. New shipments include this functionality as an option.

“Having network access to radiological data is a driving factor in new developments for First Responder instrumentation”, remarks John Yee, Application Engineer. “Access to data from many instruments in real time is critical in the event of a nuclear accident or illicit radiological activity.”

A simple interface utility is included with the WiFi-SAM shown in the attached image.

Managers may wish to display the live data of many SAM Isotope Identifiers. A comprehensive software application is available for this and can be customized to the application.

Our groundbreaking new Radiation Isotope Identifier (called a RIID by Dept of Homeland Security) offers a suite of features to address a growing range of applications. From the technical needs of a health physicist, to a food and drug inspector, to a first responder in a HAZMAT suit, the SAM 940 Defender and Revealer will excite your field users.

The Berkeley Nucleonics SAM 940 Defender was developed to give users what they need: simple operation options, the ability react quickly, and automatically obtain reliable, accurate technical data. Several modes of operation give users a range of technical reports on isotope identification and dose rate characterization. The most simple is a basic Isotope ID; the most complex includes nuclide specific dose calculations, GPS and historical data and an analysis of statistical confidence levels.

Upon power-up, the SAM 940 performs a quick self-test and immediately begins monitoring; even after a lengthy power-down, temperature stabilization and automatic calibration guarantees accurate isotope identification results.
