New rugged smartphone standard across D3S range


New rugged phone for D3S radiation detector

The Sonim XP8 is now the standard rugged smartphone across the D3S wearable radiation detector range (D3S PRD personal radiation detector and D3S ID radiation detector with full reachback, with D3S NET the full SIGMA network-compatible radiation detector coming soon).

The Sonim XP8 is an extremely rugged mobile handset, for workers in demanding and harsh environments.

Standardising on a non-consumer smartphone means the D3S user is not subject to the rapid product changeover cycle that consumer-grade phones experience, you also get a smartphone that can survive a patrol.

Key features of the Sonim XP8

Do you need a more covert phone

If you want a different smartphone, our experts will let you know if we can run the radiation analysis app on that model. If it is one of the latest smartphones, it is unlikely to present a problem.

The optional rugged case for the D3S has a special cutout to precisely fit the Sonim smartphone, but can be changed to fit other smartphones.

D3S wearable personal radiation detector is ready for your mission, whatever your mission

The D3S range of personal radiation detectors replaces PRD personal radiation detectors, SPRD spectroscopic personal radiation detectors and RIID radioisotope identification device with ONE device that fulfils all these functions.

The D3S PRD can function as a search only dose measurement PRD but at the press of a button in the app it can also show isotope identification and with an over the air app upgrade transforms into a fully-featured RIID with reachback and emailable report files including pictures. This makes the D3S range one of the most flexible and cost-effective radiation detection solutions available today.

Choose the model you need now and upgrade later. See the full range of D3S wearable radiation detectors here.
