The SA air monitoring station is designed to complete gamma radiation monitoring systems in environment networks, where continuous monitoring of the particulate with nuclide identification is required.
It combines β & γ aerosol activites and spectrum measurement within the environment. The station aimed at monitoring outdoor particulate activities as part of a national or regional environment network, around nuclear facilities and nuclear sites.
The SA sation is existing in 2 versions:
- The SA 200 version is equipped with a strong pump system allowing a high air flow rate for very accurate measurements.
- The SA 210 version is designed for situations requiring autonomous monitoring autonomous from main supply. It has a low power pump incl. battery pack modules, and performing a lower flow rate.

Compliance with CEM norms:
- EMI emission: EN 61000-6-4
- EMI immunity: EN 61000-6-2
- SA200 / 210 -NG : Noble gas volumetric activity and gamma dose rate (with additional SpectroTRACER 1,5 x 1,5” LaBr3)
- Snow protection and pipe connection
- Combined aerosol activity and spectrum measurement
- Dynamic compensations of gamma background and natural radon progenies
- Redundant communication systems available
- Calculation of activity in Bq/m² or Bq/m³ for nuclides indentification
- Low power consumption version (SA210) for emergency systems
- The SA air monitoring station is used for continuous measurement in all gaseous effluents of particulate volumetric activity.
- The sample is pulled by means of a pumping unit (3m³/h or 17m³/h flow rate according to versions) and then transferred to a detection assembly.
- The monitor, based on an embedded low power industrial computer, calculates the measured volumetric activity and triggers alarms whenever preset threshold levels are exceeded.
- A SpectroTRACER probe can be optionally placed on the top of the monitor to allow both gamma dose rate and measurements and noble gas monitoring.
