Like its Falcon 5000® predecessor, it offers many state-of-theart features, such as a thermal-cycle free cryostat, an integrated all-in-one design and laboratory-grade energy resolution. All this, however, is now also combined with an IP65 ingress protection rating, larger HPGe crystals and the option to provide the portable spectrometer with a Remote Detector Chamber (RDC) cryostat (enabling detector backshielding). Furthermore, the Aegis system is 12% lighter than the previous Falcon 5000 system. All these features make the Aegis spectrometer easily deployable for multiple use in the field … and in the lab. 

With the IP65 ingress protection rating and no cooling fans, the system can be deployed without any problem in heavy rain conditions and dusty environments without the risk of contaminating any internal parts. The exterior surface is designed such that it can be easily decontaminated and put back into service quickly. With the integration of a highly efficient cooler, the detector can remain cooled down in a wide ambient temperature range up to 50 °C (or 122 °F). The combination of the IP65 rating and the wide operational temperature range make the unit the system of choice in practically any environmental condition.
