The Quick Start Training part 1 is an overview of the upgraded SabreBPM² right out of the box. The video follows the necessary steps to get your unit up and running. It covers powering on, checking the filter, understanding the display, and viewing the spectrum. Part 1 ends with an +8 hour burn-in, which will be utilized in Part 2.
The Quick Start Training part 2 resumes after the +8 hour measurement at the end of part 1. The video instructs on how to adjust your peak markers for your elevation. The training then reviews all the instrument setting dialogs for a better understanding of the functions associated with window times, background subtraction, alpha isotopes, flow and alarm limits.
The Quick Start Training part 1 is a general overview of a SabreAlert² or an original issue SabreBPM. The video follows the necessary steps to get your instrument up and running. It covers powering on, checking the filter, understanding the display, and viewing the spectrum. Part 1 ends with an +8 hour burn-in, which will be utilized in Part 2 (above).
The Flow Calibration training teaches you how to properly calibrate either a SabreAlert² or a SabreBPM in respect to the flow of air through the instrument. It is important because the pump might not be pulling air through the system at the same rate as the instrument is reporting. In order for the instrument to function at an optimal efficiency, these values need to match.
The purpose of Alpha Calibration is to ensure that the peak-fitting algorithm knows where in the spectrum to expect the isotope and radon progeny peaks. This is so that proper radon background subtraction of the beta channel is performed. The calibration also checks for the alpha 4-Pi efficiency percentage. Perform Alpha calibration even if you have a Beta-only unit.
The Response Check training demonstrates how to check if the instrument is operating as it should. After either an Alpha or Beta Calibration has been performed, it is good to double check that the calibration was successful. Also, the response check can be done at any other time as well if the user wants to know if the SabreAlert² or SabreBPM is working correctly.
The purpose of Beta Calibration is to ensure that the SabreBPM is correctly counting the actual beta peaks and not just noise, as well as to establish the beta 4-Pi efficiency percentage. Calibration includes establishing background thresholds, verifying the background count, and measuring the efficiency of true activity.
