An innovative continuous radon monitor (CRM) offers a modern design and Bluetooth app reporting software integration.

The Sun Nuclear (Melbourne, FL, USA) 1028 XP CRM is intended for commercial and residential detection of unsafe levels of radioactive Radon gas. Among the features are a full-color graphic display for the comprehensive review of data and test results, a resistive 2.8” touch screen that works even with gloves, 10 test memory slots, each easily retrievable/updateable, which can store up to 10,000 data logs--or more than one year of continuous one-hour logs--and an extended battery life of up to 300 hours.

With a nominal sensitivity of 2.7cph per pCi/l and 48 hour uncertainty of just 6%, the 1028 XP CRM ensures accurate reading around the clock. A humidity, pressure, and temperature neutral design averts the need for software compensation or calibration. Features include Bluetooth and USB connectivity to OneRADON reporting software, motion sensors, and PIN security for tamper-proof operation. A future modular upgrade will provide remote cellular communication, cloud connectivity, and environmental monitoring of volatile organic compounds (VOCs), carbon dioxide (CO2), temperature, pressure, and humidity.

“We're excited to offer this new monitor to our customers, based on the trusted technology of our Model 1028 monitor. The modern, functional design and easy-to-use interface combined with its expandable capabilities make it a smart investment for radon professionals,” said Kai Wundke, PhD, senior director of Radon at Sun Nuclear. “In addition to this new monitor, Sun Nuclear offers model 1027, Model 1028, and Model 1030 CRMs for professional home and building inspectors.”

Radon (Rn) is a radioactive, colorless, odorless, tasteless noble gas, and is the immediate decay product of radium. It occurs naturally in minute quantities, and its most stable isotope, 222Rn, has a half-life of only 3.8 days, making radon one of the most rare elements. The decay of radon produces many short-lived nuclides known as radon daughters, ending at stable isotopes of lead. Radon gas is considered a health hazard as it is gaseous and easily inhaled. Despite its short lifetime, Radon gas, due to its high density, can accumulate in buildings, especially, in low areas such as basements and crawl spaces.
