Intended Use

Radiation monitors are designed to detect gamma and neutron radiation sources carried by passengers, in baggage, vehicles and cargoes.
The monitors are typically installed at the search area borders: at pedestrian and vehicle checkpoints.
Radiation monitors are primary means of ionizing radiation detection and serve as a basis to construct integrated radiation monitoring systems, do not emit any ionizing radiation and do not pose any hazard to health.

  •  Pedestrians
  •  Transport
  •  Baggage

Operation principle

The monitor automatically registers ionizing radiation emitted by the object passing the search area without stopping.
If the emitted radiation exceeds the preset threshold, the monitor turns on sound and light alarm. Alarm details can be transmitted to the external device.
According to the type of target objects, there are pedestrian, vehicle, railway and post-baggage monitors.


  • Nuclear energy, Ministry of Defense, and transport facilities – to provide radiation safety of personnel and public
  • Customs checkpoints and temporary storage areas – for automatic monitoring of fissile and radioactive materials for customs control purposes
  • Metallurgical and metal scrap processing facilities – for radiation monitoring of scrap metal


The Yantar series monitors have repeatedly passed tests at Russian and international test centers, and are enrolled in the registers of measuring instruments of Russia and Kazakhstan.
The Yantar monitors meet or exceed requirements of the Russian State Standard GOST R and are approved for application at the facilities of the Rosatom State Corporation, RF Federal Customs Service, Ministry of Defense, Federal Security Service, and Ministry of Emergency.
