Radiation protection instrumentation - Installed personnel surface contamination monitors
Instrumentation pour la radioprotection - Moniteurs fixes pour la surveillance de la contamination de surface du personnel
|Standard number:||IEC 61098:2023|
|Language:||English/French - Bilingual|
IEC 61098:2023 applies to contamination monitors that include warning assembles and meters used for the monitoring of radioactive contamination on the surface of personnel whether they be clothed or not. The document is applicable only to that type of equipment where the user stays at the monitor. This document is applicable to the monitoring of the whole body (including the head), hands and feet, but parts of this document can be used for monitors designed for the monitoring of radioactive contamination on the hands and/or feet only. This document does not include tritium measurement. This third edition cancels and replaces the second edition published in 2003. This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition: a. Title is modified. b. As an alternative of small area sources, area sources are added to be used for methods of test with respect to the variation of response with source position, effective instrument efficiency, detection limit (DL), and variation of response with energy. c. Detection limit (DL) complies with the ISO 11929 series. d. Descriptions of influence quantities of type F and type S are added. e. Consistency with IEC 62706 is promoted for environmental requirements, mechanical requirements, electromagnetic compatibility and methods of test. f. Descriptions of overhead detectors are added. g. Descriptions of friskers are added with respect to the hand and foot monitoring. h. Figures are made easier to understand the relation between the detector position and the response, and the positional relation between the detector surface and the source.
