Atom Tag is a radiometer-dosimeter constructed to work together with smartphone or tablet PC. Atom Tag is made for radiation monitoring of land, buildings, vehicles, construction materials, etc. You can use Atom Tag for beta, gamma and X-ray registration in physical experiments and for educational purposes.
Atom Tag contains a radiation sensor (Geiger tube), all electronics needed to power and get readings from Geiger tube, Bluetooth 4.0 interface and lithium-ion battery. Tiny plastic housing protects Geiger tube and electronics. Smartphone or tablet PC is used to process information gathered from radiation sensor and show readings on screen. Application for run with Atom Tag can be downloaded using AppStore (for iOS) or Google Play (for Android). Atom Tag don't contain hazardous or radioactive substances, use of Atom Tag is safe for people, animals and environment.
Atom Tag works in standalone mode if wireless communication with smartphone or tablet PC is lost. 3 user-programmable dose rate and accumulated dose thresholds with different alarm signals (sound or vibration) can be programmed by user for standalone mode. Information on accumulated dose is stored while Atom Tag is in standalone mode and can be read after establishing wireless communication. One smartphone or tablet PC can be connected to many Atom Tags at once.
Charging of built-in lithium-ion battery should be performed using original charging cable and any computer or smartphone charger with USB port.
