SATURN 5702 is a mobile station equipped with two detectors for gamma and neutron dose rate monitoring. The station includes:

  • Ion-chamber-based gamma radiation monitoring unit: ICP-T or ICP-T-PF
  • Neutron rem counter for pulsed fields: LUPIN BF3-NP

The detectors and the electronics are housed in a trolley-mounted mechanical structure. The height of the trolley can be customized according to the customer needs, for example to centre the detectors with the beam line height.

Each detector can be removed from the trolley to be employed remotely, up to 20 m. An ALU alarm column is mounted on the top, providing luminous and acoustic warning signals related to the status of the mobile station (good functioning, pre-alarm and alarm). 

SATURN 5702 stations can also manage external devices through 4 sets of relay contacts.

The detectors are connected via external cables to a standard 19” electronics rack equipped with two dedicated SATURN I RTM ratemeter units. Each ratemeter features a display, 3 function keys with status LEDs, and a connector for TOUCHKEY2 external keyboard.

SATURN 5702 can be connected to a remote host PC running a data management software (5700 sMON) through ETH or RS485/422 connection.
