Electronic measuring instruments, such as Radon Scout plus, DoseMan and Canary offer the advantage that a relatively short measurement duration is sufficient to obtain a preliminary overview of the situation. These instruments are set up indoors, to search penetrations paths or for soil gas measurements.

If you desire to carry out a permanent radon monitoring in your residence or basement yourself, the electronic meter Canary is suitable, because it is reliable in continuous operation, at a low purchase price.

Functionality (simplified)

  • Radon passes through diffusion into the electronic measuring apparatus.
  • In a pulse ionization chamber or a semiconductor detector, the generated electronic pulses are counted.
  • Fluctuations in the concentration of radon are detected.
  • The data can be displayed with time resolution.
  • The results can be read directly on the meter.
