SaphyRAD E - Bertin Instruments


SaphyRAD E

SaphyRAD E is a multiprobe handheld device used for the detection of alpha & beta radioactive contaminations in harsh environments.

SaphyRAD E is a multiprobe handheld device used for the detection of alpha & beta radioactive contaminations. Its ergonomic interface and ruggedized design have been specially developed to meet the needs of the nuclear industry and for use in harsh environments by non-radiation specialists.

SaphyRAD’s wide range of contamination probes combined with its specific algorithm allow for a very fast and reactive detection. Depending on the probe, the operator can either assess small or large areas to detect alpha, beta or alpha & beta radioactive contamination. SaphyRAD E also includes a simulation mode to perform users’ realistic trainings without the use of radioactive sources. All SaphyRAD’ data can be stored on an SD card for measurement recordings.

Access to probes description

Ruggedized for harsh environment

The SaphyRAD E has a robust housing with 6 large buttons designed for use with gloves. This device is adapted to meet the needs of the Nuclear industry.


SaphyRAD E is designed for the detection & measurement of Alpha and/or Beta radiation sources with the use of external connected measuring probes. It has a wide dose rate range from 0.05 μGy/h to 10Gy/h
It is also compatible with external analog probes of other systems.

Ease of use

SaphyRAD E is an ergonomic handheld device with a high image quality color screen. Some probes also include an embedded alarm & a distance control indicator.


SaphyRAD E works with a specific algorithm which was developed for a very fast and reactive detection of radiation sources.

The SaphyRAD E was initially developed for EDF, global leader in low-carbon energy. Its ergonomic design meets the requirements of the Nuclear Industry providing a versatile and ergonomic device.

The system provides different measurement modes for the measurement and detection of alpha&beta radiations. Its innovative probes are equipped with a proximity sensor and embedded alarm. A clear and easy-to-check bar graph is displayed on the screen in order to facilitate monitoring operations.

The SaphyRAD E has data storage on a removable SD Card and 45 hours of autonomy thanks to its rechargeable Li-ion battery.

The SaphyRAD E is compliant with all european standards especially in terms of compatibility with electromagnetic fields. It is also compliant with the international standard IEC60325.
