Equations are presented that give the probable rate of spurious reactor scrams due to counter noise in the period circuits commonly used at low reactor power. It is shown how a filter introduced to reduce the spurious scram rate, will delay the circuit response in the case of true emergencies. A numerical example shows that a compromise can be reached that gives a very satisfactory circuit.
