Abstract:

A reliability determination test of the Roentgen Rate Meter was made to verify the 1000 MTBF target that was established which included 10,000 operations of the scale changing mechanism. In addition, recommendations were to be presented for redesign of the meter to meet the 1000 hours required if test results indicated this necessity. From the data, a MTBF of infinity can be projected since no failures occurred during the 3000 hours of operating time for each of the 7 meters tested. Therefore, no consideration of redesign is necessary and the 1000 hour level for MTBF is considered as acceptable. Author
