No, your eyes are not deceiving you. The Soeks 112 is a fully-fledged Geiger Counter/Dosimeter, barely thicker than a marker pen, complete with an LCD display, audible and visual indications (flashing LED and a bleeper) and a user-settable alarm.

You are probably thinking it’s too small with limited sensitivity and only useful in the aftermath of a nuclear detonation. Wrong! It is fitted with a highly rated Rostatom SBM-20 Geiger Müller tube. That’s the exact same Beta, Gamma and X-Ray sensitive tube found in many of the best and most respected instruments on the market.
It detects normal background radiation - clicking every few seconds (depending on your location) - so it easily responds to elevated levels, such as those found in some antiques (clocks, watches and instruments with luminous radium-painted hands and dials, Uranium glass items and Uranium doped ceramic glazes, vintage thorium-doped gas mantles). It also detects naturally-occurring radioactivity in minerals, such as marble and granite.
The Soeks 112 has two operating modes: constant Background Measurement and Accumulated Dose. Readings are shown on the LCD in microsieverts/hr (µSv/h), in the range from 0 – 999. In both modes each detected event is shown by a flashing LED and accompanied by a bleep from the internal sounder. Even though it only has two buttons the 112 has a useful array of user adjustments. These include the threshold alarm (0 - 100 (µSv/h in 12 steps), alarm on/off, auto time off (0 – 120 minutes in 7 steps) and sounder on/off volume. There’s also an accumulated dose reset and a low battery indicator. The Soeks 112 is powered by two inexpensive and widely available AG13/LR44 button cells (included), which can keep it running for an incredible 170 hours. Price includes shipping to UK addresses*
