How to do background measurements with the DOSE-X?
This is also part 3 of the training course about DOSE-X.
This video is a training video that provides instructions on how to measure the background using the DOSE-X device. The background measurement refers to the measurement of the radiation present in the environment before any other radiation sources are measured.
To initiate the background measurement, the user needs to tap on the bottom left of the DOSE-X device. The background measurement will then start for the predefined time as set in the device settings. The video demonstrates a background measurement of one minute, which is sped up for the sake of the demonstration. At the end of the measurement, the result of the background measurement is displayed on the right side of the DOSE-X device, while the time of the last check is displayed on the bottom left.
The video then goes on to demonstrate the reset function of the DOSE-X device. To do this, a normal background measurement is initiated, and then stopped. The user can then start another measurement immediately. The device has a manual reset function, which can be used to reset the measurements to zero by tapping the button located on the bottom right of the device. After resetting, the user can start a new background measurement.
The video then shows the user how to change the manual reset function to an automatic reset function. When the automatic reset function is selected, the device will automatically reset the measurement to zero every time a measurement is stopped. The video demonstrates the automatic reset function by initiating a background measurement, stopping it, and then starting another measurement. The device automatically resets to zero before starting the new measurement.
The video concludes with a message to enjoy the day and background music. Overall, the video provides clear instructions on how to use the DOSE-X device to measure the background radiation, as well as how to use the reset function, and switch between manual and automatic reset functions.
