Radonova Laboratories has launched ROBIN2, broadening its range of radon measurement technologies. The latest version of ROBIN is twice as sensitive as its predecessor and includes an improved response function for optimum compliance with rapid changes in radon levels.
ROBIN2 is a state-of-the-art radon sensor that can be deployed as a fixed installation in smart homes for monitoring and reducing radon levels. It can be mounted in all types of ventilation control units where there is a requirement to monitor radon levels. It can be easily connected to a controller, central unit, data logger, fan control system or PLC and is available in various formats.
The new response function improves measurement accuracy as radon levels fluctuate. This is due to its improved sensitivity, which reduces error at lower levels, otherwise it is limited by deteriorating statistics due to the pulse rate being too low. ROBIN2 has a new motherboard that is more insulated and weather resistant. ROBIN2 is available as a standard or industrial version which can be used for mining. The mining version has enhanced protection against dust and moisture and is optimized for underground measurements.
– I’m delighted that Radonova has enhanced the capabilities of ROBIN, which was the first radon sensor of its kind when it was first launched in 2016. ROBIN2 is without doubt a market-leading detector, due to its new response function and overall stability, said Dag Sedin, a senior advisor at Radonova, who was integral to ROBIN’s initial launch.
ROBIN2 is available now.
ROBIN2 measures the radon content of air in Bq/m³ and gives an analog output signal of 1-10V, proportional to the concentration of radon in the air. Compared to its predecessor, ROBIN2 has improved sensitivity and a larger and more efficient measuring chamber. The output signal is also more stable and more consistent with the real radon content variation. If required, the measurement range can be defined by the customer. The radon sensor is protected against electromagnetic interference and can be connected to a thyristor controller. The transducer is mountable without directional dependence and can be permanently installed in a room, ventilation shaft or air handling unit. The mining version has enhanced moisture protection and is built for an underground environment.
