BDR-III Calibration Detector


The BDR-III Automatic Bubble Detector Reader is an affordable solution for automatic counting of large numbers of bubble detectors. The BDR-III provides bar code-ready, fully automated counting with machine vision technology that generates database-compatible files in a compact, simple-to-use instrument.

To allow the user to verify the proper operation of the BDR-III, a calibration detector is provided with each reader.  This calibration detector has a fixed number of bubbles and is identical in size to the BD-PND™ (Bubble Detector Personal Neutron Dosimeter).  The number of bubbles is supplied on the detector documentation.  The BDR-III reader is performing within specifications if the observed bubble count is within ±10% of the manufacturer’s count.

Additional calibration detectors can be purchased separately for the BDR-III reader as required.  It is recommended that the calibration detectors be replaced every 3 months (90 days) for optimum performance in terms of BDR-III system verification.
