Purpose and principle of operation

A spectrometer is aimed to measure of activity of beta-, gamma-emitting radionuclides in countable samples in the countable samples which has been obtained from the food samples, building material, environment, biological objects and etc.

Certificate Certificate

Application field

he spectrometer is applied as a stationary measurement device in the laboratories for radiological control for the measurement of radionuclide activity in the test samples if there are the appropriate methodologies for measuring which has been certified in accordance with the established procedure.

Features

A detector of beta-channel connects to a detector of gamma-channel with an internal dual-ported AD converter. The detector of gamma-channel connects to a USB input of personal computer. A quantity of channels in each port is 1024.

The spectrometer satisfies the requirements of electromagnetic compatibility according to: EN 55022:2017; EN 61000-4-2:2009; EN 61000-4-3:2006/A2; EN 61000-4-4:2012; EN 61000-4-5:2014/A1:2017; EN 61000-4-6:2014/AC:2015; EN 61000-4-8:2017; EN 61000-4-11:2014/A1:2017.
