Abstract : THIS INVENTION RELATES TO COMBINED DOSE RATE METER AND CHARGER UNIT THEREFOR WHICH DOES NOT REQUIRE THE USE OF BATTERIES BUT ON THE OTHER HAND PRODUCES A CHARGING POTENTIAL BY MEANS OF A PIEZOELECTRIC CYLINDER WHICH IS STRUCK BY A MANUALLY TRIGGERED HAMMER MECHANISM. A tubular type electrometer is mounted in a portable housing which additionally includes a Geiger-Muller (GM) counter tube and electronic circuitry coupled to the electrometer for providing multi-mode operation. Following a charging mode instant multirange measurements of local radiation in terms of dose rate is provided. (Author)
