The Recon™ is a rugged and versatile radon monitor for professional use.  With high sensitivity and high reliability, it is designed for the way you like to test for radon gas.  This includes accurate two-day screening tests, one-week radon testing and analysis in public buildings, mitigation job monitoring and long-term monitoring according to Health Canada guidelines.

The Recon functions as a data-logger, storing the measured radon and environmental values in its large memory.  Up to 15 sessions of data can be stored in memory.

Your computer handles data analysis and produces reports as PDF files.  Use either the Recon Downloading Tool Software (supplied), or the Radon Report Manager software.  You can either print these or send to your client by email.

Typical Applications

  1. Short-term Radon Tester

Accurately measure radon gas levels.  Produces a finished test report with hourly and average values.  Ideal for 2 to 5-day tests in property transactions.

  1. One-week Building Characterization

In a radon inspection at a school or commercial building, measure radon during occupied and unoccupied portions of the day.  Reports the average radon level and the radon level during occupied times.

  1. Radon Mitigation

As the mitigation job progresses, monitor radon levels to suggest mitigation strategy.  Measure hourly radon levels during the full time that you are on-site to determine mitigation effectiveness.

  1. Building Science Research

The reports are hourly; data is stored internally in 10-minute intervals.  The raw data can be imported by Excel, Matlab and other analytical software for detailed analysis.

High Reliability

The Recon uses high-sensitivity solid state alpha decay sensors for radon gas that are not affected by temperature, humidity, radon daughters, air currents or gamma radiation levels.  This produces hourly data with high accuracy.  It uses instrument-grade sensors to continually record environmental parameters.  The environmental sensors help ensure test validity, repeatability and serve in interpreting the results.

The Recon requires annual calibration to meet C-NRPP quality control requirements in Canada.
