The MiDA-5 is designed as the personal dosimeter of internal exposure caused by inhalation of alpha and beta radioactive particles. It also operates as continuous air monitor (CAM) by measuring volume activity of radioactive airborne particles as well as Equilibrium Equivalent Concentration (EEC) of Ra-222 and Ra-220 progeny in real time, providing audio and visual alarms when preset thresholds are exceeded. The monitor have a compact and lightweight design for easy carrying during performance of day to day or emergency response duties.
The MiDA-5 continuously samples air drawn to the monitor and measures activity of alpha and beta particles deposited from air on the filter media. The advanced measurement algorithm then calculates the personal exposure received by the operator during his work hours. The MiDA-5 is supplied with individual or collective charger/dock station. When placed in the dock the instrument automatically charges the battery and transfers all collected data to the PC or centralized personnel exposure management system using industry standard RS-485 Modbus RTU interface. This makes MiDA-5 the ideal solution for the collective use and system integration. When installed in the dock station, the MiDA-5 can also run in continuous mode with pump on thus working as unattended CAM Reduced service life can come from overexposure to heat and UV/sunlight.
