Abstract : As part of the Office of Civil Defense task to improve the capabilities of radiological survey instruments, a study was performed to investigate the power requirements of the CD V-715 instruments and the characteristics of the specified power source cells. Voltage and current measurements taken under load were correlated with cell age. Tests included operation of the cells at temperature extremes specified as operating limits for the CD V-715, as well as continuous operation of conventional and other commercially available cell types until the instrument could no longer be zeroed.
