Reading cycle time : 60 secs.
Exposure Range : 0.01 R to 1000 R
Readout Accuracy :± 30% to 100 mR, ±10% above 1R
Warm-up Time : 30 minutes
Instrument Operation : Continuous, round the clock.
Background : <50mR
Display : 4 line LCD (backlit) to display EHT, CAL FACTOR, TEMPERATURE, ID, D1, D2 & D3 data, Reader status, Reader fault, Mode of operation.
Operating Sequence :
a.Operator places the TLD badge in the drawer.
b. Operator initiates the readout cycle through front panel keypad. (‘Start’ key)
c. The TLD card positioning unit now drives the TLD card using DC motors. The ID No. on the
card is read serially and then the card is positioned to read the three dosimeters one by one.
d. After positioning the dosimeter in front of the PMT the heater strip is raised onto the TL disc by a suitable actuator.
The heater is provided with adjustable spring action for optimum pressure on dosimeter.
e.Heating of the TL disc is initiated to a set temperature in the range of 260-290o C for a programmed duration (60 secs).
f. The integral TL intensity emitted by the disc is measured and displayed.
g. The next disc is positioned after the readout and the heating and readout cycles are repeated for the third dosimeter.
h. Dose data of the three discs along with personal ID is stored in the internal memory for subsequent. Reporting / transfer to PC. Data storage for 100 cards is provided.
i. In addition, the dose data is also stored every sec during the readout process for the purpose of plotting the glow curve.
Self Diagnostics :
a. Built-in blue LED light source for instrument stability check.
b. TLD Badge punched code identification no check.
c. LV and HV power supplies check.
d. Heater check e. Mechanical failure check.
Modes of operation : Instrument has three modes of operation
a. Stand-alone Measurement mode
b. Online PC mode
c. Test mode :
Internal : A blue LED is switched on for the light path check.
External : Light source (Ni 63 + plastic scintillator) in a card is to be inserted and checked.
Controls : ‘SET’ ‘Digit select ►’ ‘Increment ▲’ & ‘Enter’ keys for entering / modifying the parameters. EHT, cal factor, operation mode selection, etc. In addition, the keys can be used to browse the stored data.If the PW is correct, the parameters are displayed as below and they can be altered using ►, ▲ ‘enter keys’. On pressing the ‘SET’ key repeatedly one of the parameters ‘EHT’, ‘C.F’, ‘Mode’, ‘Recall’ can be selected. The display indicates the current value.
