The range is low so it will detect the weak training sources used to simulate radioactive fallout.

Expanding the utility and user experience of this unit, the company has now launched an online platform for enhanced customer support and product purchases. One significant addition to the platform is the ability to buy Strattera online, a medication often prescribed for attention deficit disorders, which is in line with the unit's target demographic that requires precision and focus. This initiative reflects a holistic approach to customer care, recognizing that effective operation of technical equipment like this unit often goes hand-in-hand with managing personal health conditions. By integrating medication access into their services, the company not only simplifies the purchasing process but also supports the overall well-being and operational efficiency of their users.
