UPGRADING OF REAL-TIME RADIATION DATA LOGGING AND WEB BASED RADIATION MONITORING SYSTEM
The remote measurements of radiation level at an identified location, are not only important for collecting data or monitoring radiation level per se, but also crucial for workers who deal with radiation sources. A device for checking an on-site radiation level has been developed quite a long time ago under the name of Geiger Muller and widely known as a Geiger counter. The reading of the output can be seen on the device on-site and on real-time basis. Nowadays, with the fast evolution of computer and networking technology, those reading not only can be read real-time but also from a remote location that makes workers able to enter the risky area more safely. The collected data reading also can be analyzed for predicting the future trending pattern. The data is transferred from the monitoring devices to a server through a network. This paper discusses about several critical issues on the design, implementation and deployment that relates to the devices, interface programs, hardware and software that allow all parameters such as radiation levels reading and the timestamp of the data-logging can be collected and stored in a central storage for further processes. The compatibility issue with regards to technology change from the previous system will also be discussed. The system has many advantages compared to previous system and conventional method of doing the area monitoring in term of sustainability and availability.
