The article reports that Thermo Electron Corp. has published product specifications on its PM17O3 Series Gamma & Gamma/Neutron pager. The PM 1703 series of pagers are designed as highly sensitive measurement devices, conveniently worn on a belt to provide warning of rising levels of gamma or gamma and neutron radiation. These compact units are typically used to search for, detect and locate radioactive materials in a variety of situations. They also provide an excellent tool for extending stationary monitoring systems to expand the surveillance or to verify alarms of such systems and locate offending items.
