RD1503+ with Dosimeter (Outdoor Version): High accuracy Geiger counter
With the ever increasing level of world events that can give the reasonable mind increasing reasons for concern, should an unwanted natural or manmade disaster occur that could impact our lives and the lives of those we care about, think about adding the RD1503+ with Dosimeter (Outdoor Version): High accuracy Geiger counter to your emergency supply inventory.
. The growing number of nations like North Korea, Iran, Russian as well as China, that maintain a growing nuclear capability, how confident are you that this nuclear technology will always remain out of our lives? If and when it doesn't, how are you going to know where it's safe and where and when you need to flee to get out of the path of any radiation contamination? You will likely not be able to measure what you can't see without an RD1503+ with Dosimeter (Outdoor Version): High accuracy Geiger counter in your hand.

Film badge dosimeter
The badge is designed with two parts: (1) photographic film, and a holder. The film layer is made up of black and white photographic film, varying grain size impacts it’s sensitivity to incident (stray) radiation. Some film detectors have three emulsions, one for low-dose and the other for high-dose so they can measure different levels of radiation. After it’s exposed to radiation, the film must be removed from the protective packaging that guards against light exposure. Next, if must be developed to measure the exposer. This film badge measures and record radiation exposure due to gamma rays, X-rays and beta particles. When the film is exposed to radiation, an image of the film is protective onto the case. Lower energy photons are impacted preferentially by differing absorber materials. This feature is used in film dosimetry to identify the exposed radiation being recorded on the dosimeter. When the energy level is known, this allows for accurate measurement of radiation dose.
Though film dosimeters are still in use worldwide there has been a trend towards using other dosimeter materials that are less energy dependent and can more accurately assess radiation dose from a variety of radiation fields with higher accuracy.
