The Algiz 8X is a rugged tablet manufactured by the Handheld Finland which can be transformed into a portable radiation detector by mounting a gamma radiation detector accessory developed by Sensinite on to the back of the tablet. It is designed as a rugged handheld detector which can be carried in your hands, in a carry case or vehicle mounted. The purpose of this combined device is to counter radiological and nuclear threats. This is the first ever radiation detector which has been integrated into a rugged tablet for ease of use. The focus area for this product is large from security forces, military, nuclear power plants, scrap metal processing, container handling and other logistic area where radiation detector might be needed.
The rugged tablet detector fulfills the detection performance criteria from the IEC62401 standard which states the expected performance of Personal Radiation Detectors.
Jani Karlsson, Sensinite’s CEO explained that “This integrated rugged tablet radiation detector is the first of it’s kind, we are very excited about the potential of the development for improving the safety of personnel who may come into contact with sources of radiation.”
