Product Summary


Good for Natural Ores such as Radium, Monazite & Silica Only 10 sec to Complete Measurement


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 EB-17 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 199,900(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 330g and it fits your palm. Ion tester good for outdoor use!



Only 10 seconds to Complete Measurement - Basic Operation Procedures

No complicated setting is required before you conduct measurement. It is easy to operate. This ion counter has two measurement modes.
  1. Average mode --- The average negative ion count per 10 sec.
  2. Accumulation mode --- The accumulated ion count since the measurement started.
Here is how to operate in the Average mode as this mode is normally used. Very easy!

 Turn on

Push the "POWER" button for 2 or more seconds to turn on.



 Measurement in progress

Measurement starts after the 5 seconds warm up.

"---" blinks while the measurement is in progress.



 Display

The average negative ion count is displayed in 10 sec.

This image shows the ion count (150pcs/cc) with no radioactive ore.



This image shows the ion count (12573pcs/cc) with a sheet made with a radium ore.


The detector on the back side of the body has to maintain contact with ores while the measurement is in progress.

Push the "RESET" button to restart measurement.

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 EB-17 can handle ores which are smaller than the detector effective area (15.5cm2) (2.3 in2).
(3) How long does it take to collect ion count data?
It takes 10 sec in the Average mode. You can start another measurement by pushing the "RESET" button. The counter continues to display the accumulated ion count in the Accumulation mode.
(4) Does it have warm up after the counter is turned on?
Yes, it has 5 seconds warm 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).

Please note: 0-200 negative ion molecules per 1cc exist naturally in the air, so ion counts in this range are just for your reference only.
(9) Does this counter measure small ions?
Yes, it does. The EB-17 detects negative ions generated when the air is ionized by radiation. And those ions are regarded as small ions.
(10) Do I have to do maintenance work?
No, you don't have to.
(11) 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.(*2) 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.

*2: 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.

(12) What are the differences between the EB-17 and the COM-3010PRO?
1. While the EB17 completes measurement in approx. 10 seconds, the COM-3010PRO completes in approx. 20 seconds.

2. The EB-17 covers negative ion counts of up to 199,900(pcs/cc), while the COM-3010PRO covers only up to 100,000(pcs/cc).
