Detector array of mobile CoMo-170 ZS contamination monitors for easy and safe contamination control of large groups of people in emergency centers.It is advisable to check all persons, including children, entering the emergency center for contamination. Access control carried out with mobile contamination measuring devices is associated with extreme stress (measurements are carried out directly on the body surface).The acoustic single pulse indication of the measuring device, and the alarms that may be triggered, may cause further anxieties. Under these conditions, a manual scan using a mobile contamination monitor, conducted by a CBRN specialist, for example, a member of the fire department, is not the ideal solution. The process requires a lot of "proximity" and takes a relatively long time.The ECMo configuration offers an alternative to the use of mobile contamination monitors. The system works with 4 or more contamination monitors. It is connected to a computer system for visualization of the measured data. A CBRN specialist provides simple instructions to the persons being measured: "Please stand in front of the measuring device". After 5 seconds: "Please turn around." A second person (CBRN), located at an appropriate distance, controls the measurement and informs the person being measured about the outcome or gives instruction on what to do next: "Please turn to the right." Everything takes place without body contact and without acoustic stress. The control person sees the measurement results displayed on the PC screen by colored symbols (bars, signal lights).The sound remains turned off deliberately.
