We present two automated radiometers of RRA family designed for radon concentration measurements. Measurements are based on the method of electrostatic precipitation of charged radon decay daughters onto the surface of the passivated semiconductive Si(Au) a-particle detector. Radon 222Rn and thoron 220Rn concentrations are determined from the quantity of registered a-particles at RaA (218Po) and TnA (216Po) decays. Radon concentration, temperature, relative humidity and pressure are measured simultaneously so that radon concentration can be followed with time and correlation dependences between the parameters can be obtained. Principal performance specifications and promising applications of the radiometers are presented.
