The radon sensor ROBIN measures the radon in air and converts the concentration to a proportional output signal. The sensor can be connected to a fan controller, PLC or any other device suitable for analog input signals. The measurement range can be specified by the customer; however, the standard sensor range is either 0-400 Bq/m³ or 0-4000 Bq/m³.
The sensor has high immunity to EMC and withstands the interference from i.e. thyristor controllers. The radon sensor could be fixed installed in any direction and could be placed in ventilation ducts, air handling units or just stationary in a room. It’s independent of the airflow condition and will measure correct in both laminar and turbulent airflow.
Renowned for its stability and rugged aluminium design, ROBIN is an industrial radon sensor for ventilation applications such as air handling units, roof fans and radon evacuation fans. For industrial radon detection, there are two versions of ROBIN offering different measurement ranges: 0-400Bq/m3 and 0-4000Bq/m3. Each unit is factory calibrated with traceable industry standards.
ROBIN in Mining
For the mining industry, a reinforced version of ROBIN is available for fixed installations in underground environments. The default measurement range is 0-4000 Bq/m³, but this can be easily customized on request. As with other versions of ROBIN, the radon sensor has a high immunity to EMC. Protection against humidity is achieved by additional painting on the PCB and the provision of a thermal load in close proximity to the detector which duly prevents condensation.
