Product Summary


Good for Natural Ores such as Radium, Monazite & Silica Easy to Operate


Please note: This ion counter cannot measure negative ions if a sample does NOT emit radiation. e.g. It cannot measure negative ions generated by an electric discharge type negative ion generator. You can use an air suction type air ion counter in that case.

FYI: What is the difference between an ion counter for ores and a counter for other than ores?
Usable worldwide!
You can use this ion counter in most countries as it works with AC100-240V and comes with the AC plug adaptors for the countries.

Measures Negative Ions Generated Especially by Natural Ores & Ceramics




It measures negative ions generated especially by natural ores and ceramics, that emit radiation, such as Radium, Monazite and Silica.


Good for Product Promotion and R&D




It is good for product promotion and R&D as it shows actual ion counts on the LCD.


Provides a Stable Measurement


✔ Less likely to be affected by air flow

Ion counts measured by air suction type counter can be affected by air flow as they suck air to detect negative ions. The COM-3010PRO does not suck air but detects radiation and converts it into the negative ion count, so it is less likely to be affected by air flow. This is why it provides a stable measurement.


✔ The highly accurate detector (Geiger-Müller tube)




The highly accurate detector (Geiger-Müller tube) (*1), that meets NASA requirements, detects radiation and it converts it to the negative ion count.

(*1) The GM (Geiger-Müller) tube measures an amount of radiation. When a radiation is released, the ambient air is ionized and then negative ions are generated. The amount of negative ions increases in proportion to the amount of the radiation. This instrument uses this theory to calculate the ion count.


Light/Sound to Show You Ion Count Fluctuation




The intensity of the light/sound change as the ion count fluctuates during measurement. You can visually and acoustically convince your customer.

The LED light on the upper side of the body and the detection sound intensify as the ion count increases. You can find how the ion count fluctuates intuitively. Good for product promotion in front of your customer!


Wide Range, Battery-Operated Lightweight and Compact Body


It measures up to 100,000(pcs/cc), so it is good for most of natural ores and ceramics.




It runs on 4x AA batteries. The compact body weighs approx. only 420g and it fits your palm. Ion tester good for outdoor use!



Data Output

The ion count data can be printed out on a thermal printer by one push-button. The printer does not come with this counter. Please contact us for details about a thermal printer.


How to Operate

This ion counter has 5 measurement modes.
1. Standard mode:
The counter measures the average negative ion count per 20 sec.

2. High speed mode:
High speed mode: The counter measures the average negative ion count per 10 sec. Good for quick measurement.

3. Automatic measurement mode:
The counter automatically measures the average negative ion count of 8 consecutive 20 second measurements. You do not need to repeat each measurement manually.

4. Moving average mode:
The counter measures the average of 16 negative ion counts collected during the first 20 seconds and those collected every second during the next 15 seconds. It takes 35 seconds to complete the measurement in this mode.

5. Radiation detection mode:
The reading increases depending on the dose of radiation the counter detects. This mode is useful to find the source of the radiation.

 1. Standard mode

Q & A


(1) Is there an ideal distance between the detector and ores?
The detector has to maintain contact with ores during the measurement process.
(2) How is the accuracy of this product compared to air suction type ion counters?
It is similar to that of highly accurate air suction type ion counters.

Please note: The COM-3010PRO can handle ores which are smaller than the detector effective area (15.5cm2) (2.3 in2).
(3) How long does it take to measure the ion count in the "Standard mode"?
It takes 20 sec.
(4) Does it start working as soon as switched on?
Yes, it does. The measurement starts as soon as you turn it on. No warming up!
(5) Do I have to calibrate the counter during operation?
No, you don't have to.
(6) Can I measure ion densities in water?
No, you can't. This ion counter measures ion densities in the air only.
(7) Can I measure positive ions?
No, you can't.
(8) What is the lowest ion density this counter can measure?
It is 1 (pcs/cc).
(9) Does this counter measure small ions?
Yes, it does. The COM-3010PRO detects negative ions generated when the air is ionized by radiation. And those ions are regarded as small ions.
(10) Can I use it outdoors?
Yes, you can but this product is not waterproof and it should not get wet.
(11) Do I have to do maintenance work?
No, you don't have to.
(12) What are the differences between the COM-3010PRO and the EB-17?
The same measurement principle is used in both products. The COM-3010PRO has the following features compared to the EB-17.
  1. Wider range => It covers negative ion counts of up to 100,000(pcs/cc), while the EB-17 covers only up to 199,900(pcs/cc).
  2. Automatic measurement mode => It automatically measures the average negative ion count of 8 consecutive 20 second measurements.
  3. Moving average mode => It measures the average of 16 negative ion counts collected during 35 seconds. The long measurement time provides more accurate negative ion count data.
  4. Radiation detection mode => The reading increases depending on the dose of radiation the counter detects. It works like a Geiger counter but the reading is for your reference only as it is not displayed in sievert (sv).
(14) What is the difference between an ion counter for ores and a counter for other than ores?
Here is the difference.

For ores:
A counter can measure negative ions only when a sample emits radiation.(*1) It is good for Silica, Monazite and radium ores. It provides stable measurement because it detects radiation and converts it to the negative ion count, so measurement is not affected by air flow. It does not work when a sample does not emit radiation.

*1: Ions are generated by ionization of radiation.

For other than ores:
A counter can measure negative ions even when a sample does not emit radiation. It is also good for Silica, Monazite and radium ores which emit radiation. i.e It does not matter if a sample emits radiation or not. However, measurement can be affected by air flow.

This handy counter is great as it can measure negative ions emitted by ores.
This handy counter is great as it can measure negative ions emitted by ores as well as those floating in the air. The radium sheet for test operation, which comes with the ion counter, makes me feel warm when it makes contact with the body, so I can actually feel that ions are released. Thank you for your great support. You clearly and kindly answered my questions when I called you. I was able to learn a lot.
