Single- or Dual-Channel Analyzer
Well detector with 2? lead for PET
1024-channel Multi-Channel Analyzer
The SpectroAnalyzerTM is a compact single or dual-channel counting instrument used for gamma counting, and is also available with a 1024-channel MCA. It contains a precision pulse height analyzer and high voltage supply, both microprocessor controlled.
The pulse height analyzer setting is accomplished through a menu and selects an energy region of interest. When the proper high voltage is applied to the detector, the PHA is calibrated directly in keV. Optional spectrum/MCA includes auto-calibration.
Output signals from the pulse height analyzer are totaled by the scaler, which can operate in either a preset count or preset time mode, and background count is automatically subtracted. Efficiency can be measured or entered, and activity can be displayed in disintegrations perminute (DPM).
A serial computer interface (RS-232) for input and output allows a computer to change settings, and count data can be transferred to the computer for printing or saving to disk.
Tested to EN61010-1 and equivalent UL/CSA standards for CAN/USA certification by TUV Rheinland, and tested to EMC standard EN61326 for CE conformity.
AccuSync Medical Research Corporation is ISO13485 registered designer and manufacturer of medical devices and related instruments in nuclear medicine.
One microsecond pulse pair. The overall resolving time of the scaler is limited by the input circuits and the necessary integration time in the detector for adequate pulse height resolution.
The microprocessor-controlled timer indicates elapsed time up to 1000 minutes.
Time can be preset to any number up to 1000 minutes using the menu.
Number of counts from100 to 10 million can be preset by using the menu.
Automatic subtraction of background count.
Indicates 0-10 million counts per minute with automatic change of range.
Five energy ranges from 500 to 2000 keV in steps of 500 keV are provided.
1) Upper and lower level discriminator independently controlled from 0 to 100%.
2) % window. Lower level is set as the reference in keV’s. Window is set as the % of this reference.
3) Symmetrical window. Lower level is set as the reference in keV’s. Window is set symmetrical about this reference.

The variable gain amplifier covers the energy range from 500keV to 2000keV in 500keV steps.
Low level discriminator can be set to any level up to 100% of the selected range in 10keV steps.
Upper level discriminator can be set to any level up to 100% of the selected range in 10keV steps.
Automatic; standard source required.
Backlighted LCD display provides indication of accumulated counts, elapsed time, rate of incoming pulses, lower and upper level discriminator values, and high voltage setting.
