The Yantar-Zh monitors consist of metal pillars mounted along the railway tracks. The pillars contain electronics units, gamma and neutron detectors. The monitors are equipped with sound and light alarming devices, as well as performance status indicators.
Lead shields used for gamma detectors serve to enhance gamma detection efficiency.
Infrared occupancy sensors ensure reliable detection of the target object in the search area even in extreme weather conditions.
The Yantar pillars, detectors and electronic units are climatically protected well enough to withstand harsh environments. Optional anti-vandal cages are intended to protect the radiation monitor against mechanical damage.
The radiation monitor transfers data to the control panel or a PC with the application specific software installed.
The recommended speed of the object can be increased by application of customized solutions, including increase of the pillar quantity. The choice of a specific Yantar-Zh model as well as agreement of customized solutions is made in accordance with installation site conditions and customer’s requirements to the minimum detected quantities of radioactive and nuclear materials.
