Model 52-1 Portable Portal Monitor

Ludlum Model 52-1


  • Portable
  • Plastic Scintillation Detectors
  • Assembles or Disassembles in less than 5 Minutes
  • Carrying Case Included

In an independent study by the Human Monitoring Laboratory, the Ludlum 52-1-1 was compared to three other reputable portal monitors. (52-1-1 is a wider model, similar to the 51-1.) The study found that the Ludlum 52-1-1 was the best choice for monitoring beta radiation or low energy gamma radiation.1

Portable personnel monitoring (NOTE: This instrument is portable and can be assembled or disassembled in less than 5 minutes. Carrying case is included)
DETECTORS: 4 ea. 168 cubic inch plastic scintillation allowing a total detection area of 672 cubic inches
THRESHOLD: 4 plus or minus 1 mV

ALARM: Indicated by red LED, and audible signal (greater than 60 dB at 2 feet)
COUNT TIME: Adjustable from 0 - 20 seconds (0 second setting is for walk through mode)
ENTER/CHECKING: (green LED) Indicates system is ready for use. Flashing LED indicates a count is in progress.
