N42-2011 Spectroscopic Personal Radiation Detector
ANSI/IEEE N42.42 Standard project
This is an example of a document produced by a Spectroscopic Personal Radiation Detector (SPRD). In this document:
- The instrument is described via a <RadInstrumentInformation> element.
- The gamma radiation detector (a Csl) and the neutron radiation detector (a Lil) are described by a <RadDetectorInformation> element.
- The energy declaration of the gamma radiation detector is defined via a linear model with no zero offset and 4.0 keV/channel.
- Two measurements, and their corresponding nuclide identification results, are recorded:
- Each measurement consists a <RadMeasurement> element containing a spectrum from the gamma radiation detector, counts from the a neutron radiation detector, and the ambient dose equivalent rate (in µSv/H) as collected over a one second integration time; the instrument's location and operating mode are captured as well, via <RadInstrumentState>. The id attribute value assigned to each <RadMeasurement> uses a simple sequential scheme (i.e., "M112", "M113"); each child element id attribute adds a unique suffix depending of the type of element (e.g., "M112G for the <Spectrum> from the gamma radiation detector for measurement M112).
- Immediately following each <RadMeasurement> element, the analysis results for the measurement are given by an <AnalysisResults> elements.
- There is a fault flag for the value out of limit.
