Low cost Digital Miniature Multi Channel Analyzer
The MCA527L is a battery powered economical 2K Multi-Channel Analyzer/Multi-Channel Scaler module. High voltage supply for detector and preamplifier power supply are integrated as well as a digital filter. Together with a detector it forms a small-size gamma spectroscopy system, which is well suited to the demands of field measurements for international safeguards, environmental monitoring, nuclear waste treatment facilities, radioactive transport control and similar applications.
Furthermore, the MCA527L supports a vast number of different detectors and its 2K resolution is adequate to support all kind of detectors except HPGe detectors. As the MCA527L works with digital filtering, it allows to set a broad range of filter time constants and it is also tolerant to largely differing preamplifier signal shapes.
The application programs from our MCA software family are free of charge and allows to operate the device as a general purpose multi channel analyzer, multi channel scaler, universal counter or oscilloscope.
The MCA 527L is a downgraded and cost optimized version of the MCA527. Although it is not suitable for HPGe, it will have the best possible performance with NaI, CZT, LaBr and other similar detectors.
