MADUK: Display of measurement data improved
ENSI has upgraded its MADUK web application. The MADUK monitoring network is used to monitor the radioactivity around nuclear power plants and the Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI).
The web application for displaying the real-time data from MADUK measuring probes offers new features for map display and station selection. The new user interface is configured in a mobile-friendly design while the full-screen mode makes it easy to view the data. The MADUK monitoring network delivers real-time around-the-clock data from 57 probes that are positioned in the surroundings of the nuclear power plants and the Paul Scherrer Institute. The probes are used for automatic monitoring of the radiation releases from nuclear power plants and the PSI.
Visitors to the ENSI website can access a nuclear power plant via the MADUK web application or view one of the 57 measuring probes and thus its radioactivity values in real time. Via the ENSI website, it is also possible to view archived measurement data for each probe right back to 1994.
The MADUK monitoring network
The purpose of the MADUK monitoring network for automatic monitoring of radioactivity is to protect personnel, the population and the environment. Through its use, ENSI is able to monitor compliance with the radiological protection regulations and discharge limits in the surroundings of the nuclear power plants and the Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI).
57 probes deliver around-the-clock data. ENSI’s MADUK control centre processes and archives the data and, if necessary, provides an immediate alert to the ENSI Emergency Response Organisation and the National Emergency Operations Centre (NEOC). The measuring probes of the MADUK system complete and supplement the overall Swiss radioactivity monitoring network NADAM (Automatic Dose Alarm and Monitoring Network), which has a further 76 measuring stations spread throughout Switzerland. NADAM is operated by the National Emergency Operations Centre (NEOC).
