Sentinelle 360

Source exposure signal for gammagraphic inspections















The beacon 360 is intended for the operators in gammagraphic shots. It was conceived to indicate the releases of sources and prevent any risk of irradiation. Equipped of LEDs flash in 360° and of a sound signal, it ensures the safety of the workers of the construction site.
