Model: CD V-715 Radiation Survey Meter (ion chamber type)
Range: 0 to 500 Roentgens per Hour
High-Range Gamma Radiation Detection
Calibrated & Fully Operational
Strap & Manual
Power Supply: Requires
1 common 1.5v D-Cell Batteries (Not Included)
KI4U Radiation Lab Tested & Recently
KI4U, Inc. is licensed and authorized by the
State of Texas (Bureau of Radiation Control License No. L05515).
KI4U is the only private, non-government, lab that specializes in calibrating
high-range Civil Defense instruments. This Survey Meter has been
rigorously inspected, tested and calibrated at the licensed
radiation calibration laboratory - KI4U. It is fully ready
for reliable, accurate and confident service in the field.
These units are taken through preventative
maintenance, tests and evaluations prior to calibration. After passing the KI4U
lab calibration they are then certified and a calibration sticker is placed on
the unit showing the calibration date and other relevant information.
The device comes with a manual and carrying strap.
The Model CD V-715 Radiation Survey Meter was an integral part of the Civil
Defense emergency response community with thousands still in use today across
America. Radiation meters SAVE LIVES. ONLY HIGH
LEVELS of radiation are fatal. It takes 300 to 500 Rads of Total
Dose for 50% of those exposed to die.
The CD V-715 Survey Meter has a hermetically sealed ionization chamber. It is a portable
monitoring instrument that measures gamma radiation dose rates as high as 500
roentgens per hour (R/hr). It is
designed to be used in determining radioactive contamination levels that may
result from an enemy attack or other nuclear disaster. It has had two controls: a
zero adjust knob and a range switch. The range selector switch which
turns the instrument on checks its operation and serves to select the proper
range. The zero control is used to
adjust the supply voltage to compensate for battery aging, temperature
variations, thus, insuring rated accuracy for any reading taken.

with one D-sized battery, will operate continuously for 150 hours, longer
if on intermittent basis.
accuracy on any of its four ranges is within +- 20% of true dose
maintained throughout temperature ranges of -20 F to +125 F, relative
humidity to 100% and altitudes up to 25,000.
- Scales/Range: X0.1: 0 - 0.5 R/hr, X1: 0 - 5.0 R/hr, X10:
0 - 50 R/hr, X100: 0 - 500 R/h.

- How this Meter Reads Radiation ***
This meter is NOT for measuring
common, normal, background radiation, NOT
for measuring radiation that might be in food or water, or very small
radioactive particles that might be on your clothing or skin. For that get the
CDV-700 GEIGER Counter Radiation meter, it will measure that low, but it won't
measure radiation any higher than 50miliRads/hour.
This meter MEASURES how MUCH radiation you are getting PER HOUR. It does NOT
measure your TOTAL Accumulated DOSE. FOR DOSE monitoring you want
something as simple as a RADSTICKER or a CDV-742 DOSIMETER and CDV-750 charger.
You may find CD V-715's on EBay or other such
sites but they are almost always surplus items that have not been inspected,
tested, repaired or calibrated. Just because it's advertised as working does not necessarily mean the unit has been calibrated. These units require periodic calibration to function properly. Using an uncalibrated device
could expose you to dangerous levels of radiation. Calibration can only be performed by a licensed radiation
calibration lab such as KI4U.
Don't wait until a nuclear crisis occurs to order one of
these. Once a crisis occurs the demand will almost certainly outpace the
