The DolMo F dose rate monitor for firefighting is a new, intuitive dose alert device and dose rate meter from NUVIA Instruments. When switched on, the device immediately prompts the user to select the dose threshold as per German Fire Service Regulation 500 (FwDV 500). Likely still known to many by its former name of S.E.A. GmbH Strahlenschutz-, Entwicklungs- und Ausrüstungs-Gesellschaft, NUVIA Instruments GmbH was founded in 1993 by Heinz Kirsch and Günter Werthmann - two seasoned experts in radiation protection and nuclear measuring technology. Meeting special requirements As a midsize company, NUVIA enjoys a number of advantages - including agility. For example, if a customer has a special request, or a measurement solution needs to meet special requirements, the team can respond at speed. This dose alert device and dose rate meter is perfectly in line with German Fire Service Regulation 500 On more than a few occasions, special projects like these have produced new standard products that now benefit the company’s entire customer base. In the run-up to June’s INTERSCHUTZ 2020 in Hannover, NUVIA is already unveiling the new DolMo F dose rate monitor. This dose alert device and dose rate meter is perfectly in line with German Fire Service Regulation 500 (FwDV 500 – ‘Units in CBRN deployment’), making it particularly suitable for firefighting call-outs. Relevant deployment scenarios As soon as the DolMo F is switched on, the user is prompted to select a dose threshold from the display menu that corresponds to the aforementioned regulation. Perfectly fine-tuned to the relevant deployment scenarios, the DolMo F is designed to be highly intuitive thanks to its easy-to-follow selection interface, and can be combined with the CoMo-170 contamination monitor to form the ideal piece of state-of-the-art vehicle equipment. Featuring an integrated Geiger-Müller tube, the measuring device is designed for use in low dose rate measuring ranges of up to 100 millisieverts per hour. The DolMo F can also display the cumulative dose in addition to the dose rate.
