Re: Mirion PDS 100G, Spectrometric Personal Radiation Detector

If luuk says so I would say case is closed. I am not too disappointed I have to say, I didn't even consider detecting neutron as a factor while choosing this detector, but it would have been a nice bonus to have! Still, I will get in touch with the Mirion man I had a conversation with a month or so ...

Re: Mirion PDS 100G, Spectrometric Personal Radiation Detector

Hi guys, Turning on the neutron option does not mean it can measure neutrons! There are two different detectors for these unit, the first one is just a CsI(Tl) crystals for gamma's, the second one is a combination from two crystals in one detector CsI(Tl/LiL(Eu) that is the only one that can also d...

Re: Mirion PDS 100G, Spectrometric Personal Radiation Detector

Cool, that is really nice that you can convert it in a GN device! And I thought the detector is the expensive special part and not the software... Would you also help me with mine to do that? I have also answer from my friend and she can give me the software, but seems like the CD is broken. Anyway...

Re: Mirion PDS 100G, Spectrometric Personal Radiation Detector

You can see after the conversion the real time graph has a lot more data available. Before you could only see dose rate and CPS, now not only you have the neutron counts, but also those in the Am241, Cs137 and Co60 "windows". You can flag and unflag what you want to see, because keeping them all mak...

Re: Orvieto - High Natural Radiation Background

First of all, i really like the first photo, very nice work. What camera you use? Well, my philosophy is when I am traveling everything must be as portable as it can be. The camera is a Sony RX100 IV https://www.sony.it/electronics/fotocamere-cyber-shot-compatte/dsc-rx100m4 I bet you and Daniel you...

This is a very interestind an nice detector, i saw those in ebay and were considering purchasing this device.
Does it have a smart phone app?
No, as far as I know you need a device with Windows OS. I went for a transformer 10’’ Tablet/PC. The software works fine with Windows 10.

Re: Mirion PDS 100G, Spectrometric Personal Radiation Detector

Great review Massimo, I'm glad I gave you the right tip ;-) I look forward to read your Fukushima chronicles !! Yeah, I owe you one Daniel! I can confirm that I just converted the PDS 100G in PDS 100GN by simply flagging "gamma and neutron" in factory parameters. In order to do that you have the lo...

Re: Mirion PDS 100G, Spectrometric Personal Radiation Detector

But look at the exact device name. Ours has not a neutron detector because it's name is PDS-100G and the one with the neutron detector is PDS-100GN, so ours can not count neutrons, but for the price I do not complain about that. Anyway, I have bought this nice neutron detector from Steven :-) Actua...

Orvieto - High Natural Radiation Background

Hi folks, This is a long holiday weekend in Italy, so yesterday I took the chance and took my brand new spectroscopic dosimeter to take some spectra and measurement in Orvieto, an ancient beautiful city in southwestern Umbria, a region in mid-Italy, famous, among other things, for its dome. Photogra...

Re: Mirion PDS 100G, Spectrometric Personal Radiation Detector

I also found out that dose rate is not completely correct. I have some uranium minerals and all of my other radiation detectors show higher dose rate. Anyway the reaction time of the PDS-100 is really amazing! Maybe dose rate can be calibrated with the software, do you know? Consider this device ha...
