Re: Mirion PDS 100G, Spectrometric Personal Radiation Detector

I didn't have any issues setting a custom Gain value for calibration, I used 1.75 and it was accepted. If you use mouse to change it via the up/down controls, it will change by +/- 0.10, but manually you can enter any number. I don't think you would get any reasonable spectrum after 35 seconds with ...

Re: Mirion PDS 100G, Spectrometric Personal Radiation Detector

Yup, my battery was also fully charged when the BT problems appeared. The application is just pretty outdated and has several other issues.

Re: Mirion PDS 100G, Spectrometric Personal Radiation Detector

Thanks Tom and also thanks to Janni for prompt support with software :) BTW, Bluetooth communication with the device seems quite unstable, the connection in application seems to break often and I have to re-initiate it. Though the BT device is still paired. I'm wondering if it's possible to obtain a...

Re: Mirion PDS 100G, Spectrometric Personal Radiation Detector

Happy new owner of this device. Required adjusting calibration as well.
A quick check with Cs137 reference after recalibration:

Re: Mirion PDS 100G, Spectrometric Personal Radiation Detector

Happy New Year to everyone!
I'm joining the club of PDS-100G owners :) The seller is quite easy with accepting counter-offers, I just acquired it for £100 less than the price listed.
Would be great if you guys could provide me the software and/or anything else the seller doesn't.

Re: Mirion PDS 100G, Spectrometric Personal Radiation Detector

I'm really tempted to acquire one of those neat devices.
Do you know if it's possible to obtain and/or upgrade the firmware of the device?
Perhaps one might upgrade it to the -ID version this way, unless it's somehow locked by the device or the -ID version has some other features (i.e. larger memory).

Re: Hottest Sample so far - Autunite Crystal from China

Since Radon is heavier than air, I think you should measure the levels near the floor where it's accumulating. A while ago I took part in a presentation about Radon in buildings and the observation was that highest levels were measured near pipes (gas, water, etc) entering the buildings. The fact ab...

Re: My Fukushima report

Great report Janni, thanks! Just out of interest - how close to the NPP is it possible to get? I suppose that unlike Chernobyl, the entire NPP area is off limits? BTW: if anyone is interested in some measurement from Chernobyl, I uploaded some photos of my trip a few years ago here: https://www.hwin...
