A Radiation Counter indicates presence and intensity of radioactivity in the immediate vicinity.

Can be preset to give a warning signal if levels of radioactivity rise to dangerous levels. Readouts are given in specifics and in terms of danger to humans.

Battery life is around 200 hours for TL–8- models, and several weeks for higher TL models. TL–6 models are the size of a liter bottle, TL–8 models are palm sized and TL–10+ models are the size of a wristwatch or less

The advanced version is a wrist mounted version designed to be attached to Vacc Suits or worn on the person. They have a digital readout and can be connected to computers for data analysis of radiation exposure.
