OPERATING PRINCIPLE
 
Gamma activity monitor operating principle is based on the detection unit pulse-height distribution analysis. Controlling PC reads the detection unit data on-line, processes it and displays on computer screen.
 
The installed PC application software is intended for controlling the activity monitor operation modes, viewing the recorded information, calculating gamma-radionuclide activity and measurement error for chosen measurement geometry, and managing electronic history log of measurement results.
  
Measurement procedure includes preliminary analysis of sample radionuclide composition. Activity calculation is carried out based on the results of monitored sample radionuclide identification procedure.
