MODEL 375 DIGITAL AREA MONITOR

 

The Model 375 is a versatile, compact, and very affordable digital electronic controller designed for monitoring radiation in areas. Its simple design accommodates many different detectors suiting a wide variety of applications, and is equipped with a local readout and alarms. These versatile units may also be connected to an optional auxiliary indicator/annunciators for alerting personnel at remote locations. The user-friendly, digital design enhances setup and operation. These units may also be networked to a central PC-based station where data are logged and alarms posted.

This affordable and very flexible system has found its way into many applications resulting in a full complement of detectors, accessories, and options that include remote indicator alarms, printers, relay outputs, weather-proof enclosures, Ethernet networking software, industrial cameras, and more. See Options List.

Sites requiring centralization of their data can link multiple 375 systems together via Ethernet and view them using a common web browser with the purchase of Ludlum's Webpage & Service Software. This program collects all data in real time, logs data, and annuciates any alarms. The system can also send intelligent e-mail alerts to responsible personnel and capture a picture of whatever triggered an alarm anywhere optional Ethernet cameras are employed.
