The DX-2 Radiation Monitor can instantly detect beta, gamma and x-ray radiation. This monitor emits audible clicks and while registering radiation levels on a compressed scale analog meter. A dual scale meter that is capable of detecting higher ranges or radiation, it goes up to 100 mR/hour or 1000 µ Sv/hr. DX-2 has an LED indicator for battery usage and comes with an easily replaceable 9 volt battery.
