Abstract:

This invention relates generally to a switch for actuating a device when the neutron exposure exceeds a predetermined threshold level and, more particularly, to a switch which will activate a device such as a signaling device on a power plant when the neutron exposure exceeds the predetermined threshold level, thereby preventing damage to the power plant which would normally occur due to such excessive neutron exposure.
