  • Analog + Digital Meter
  • Extends to 3.6 m (12 ft.)
  • 2 Energy-Compensated GM Detectors
  • Range: 0.1 mR/hr to 1000 R/hr
  • (shoulder strap included)

The Model 78 Stretch Scope telescoping gamma survey meter keeps the user at a safe distance from high radiation areas and reaches areas that are difficult to access with other detectors. The wide 0.1 mR/hr to 1000 R/hr detection range is accomplished using dual energy-compensated GM detectors. The backlit digital LCD delivers precise 4-digit measurement values, which can be programmed to display units of R or Counts, and is accompanied by icons and messages indicating the operational status of the instrument. Rate changes are conveniently viewed on the accompanying analog meter. The front-panel controls include separate switches for On/Off, Audio, mR/hr and R/hr range selection, Fast/Slow response, and LCD backlight. A clip-on adjustable shoulder strap is included. The instrument handle may be removed, thereby reducing the collapsed length from 105.9 cm (41.7 in.) to 92 cm (36.2 in.) for easier transport and storage of the instrument.
