SPECTRUM TECHNIQUES

Basic Nuclear Lab SystemBasic Nuc Lab System

The Basic Nuclear Lab System is a complete student station designed for high school and college level nuclear science instruction. The model ST160 is an updated replacement for the older ST150 and incorporates USB technology to connect to IBM compatible computers. The system may be used with or without a computer and consists of a 6-decade scaler/timer with built-in Geiger-Mueller counter, sample positioning tray and 11- piece radiation absorber set.
The system features a large LED display, variable high voltage for plateau measurements, serial interface and cable with software for data transfer to either the PC or Mac, experiment manuals and a set of alpha, beta and gamma radioisotope sources. Data files are stored in spreadsheet compatible format for graphing and manipulation prior to printing.

 

 

Introductory Nuclear Lab SystemIntroductory Nuc Lab System

This analog ratemeter system is powered by rechargeable batteries and may be use either as a portable surveyor or as a lab station. Equipped with a detachable GM probe, stand absorber set, source set, manuals, software and computer interface, the system may be used as a stand-alone station or with the computer
The emulation software transfers data from the instrument and allows the system to be used as a simple scaler/timer for more accurate measurements. The ratemeter and scaler functions are displayed on the monitor making the system ideal for classroom and group demonstrations. Files are saved in spreadsheet compatible format for graphing manipulation and printing.

 

 

Intermediate Nuclear Lab SystemIntermediate Nuc Lab System

The Intermediate System is built around the new ST360 Radiation Counter and provides the ultimate in nuclear lab systems for studying the characteristics of radiation.

PA-1  Charge Sensitive Preamp  PA-1  Charge Sensitive Preamp 

The PA-1 preamplifier provides a convenient interface between a proportional counter or CdZNTe SPEAR detector and a single or multi-channel analyzer. Due to the low output of these detectors, a preamplifier such as the PA-1 is necessary to measure low energy gamma and X-rays. The PA-1 also provides extra filtering for the high voltage bias. Power is provided for the PA-1 via a DB9 male connector and 3’ cable. The unit is fully compatible with the models UCS20 and UCS30 spectrometers.
