The PNK-R meter can be used as an adapter which allows conventional pancake probes to be connected to the CANBERRA™ Smart Probes (CSP) instruments such as Radiagem meter.
But the PNK-R device is more than an adapter, as it transforms a conventional pancake probe and its cable into a very smart probe. Effectively, the PNK-R unit includes all key components of hardware circuitry (high voltage power supply, amplifier, discriminator, etc.), and the intelligence associated with controlling those components – control and storage of key parameters, settings, calibrations, generic probe ID, alarm settings (10 values for each unit to display with default setting), etc.
Once calibrated with its probe and cable, the PNK-R meter is ready to be used as a plug and play group to start a QA measurement in CPM, DPM, DMP/100 cm2 with 4000 survey meter series; or c/s, Bq, Bq/cm2 with 2000 survey meter series.
As long as a PNK-R device is associated with the same pancake probe and cable (PNK-R set), it can be "hot swapped" to all CSP meters without the need for any setup and immediately proceeds to measurement. The PNK-R set can also be calibrated without connection to survey meter. Calibration and QA measurements can be performed directly with the PNK-R device, your probe and cable, without using an instrument, by connecting the PNK-R unit to a computer with CANBERRA Smart Probe Software (CSPS™).
The PNK-R meter connects to the instrument’s CSP connector and provides a MHV I/O to connect almost any pancake probe via its existing cable. Most probes integrating a 900 V operating pancake (HP360, HP210AL, 44.9) can be connected to CSP survey meters with a PNK-R unit.
A PNK-R 500 device is available on request for pancake based probe operating at 500 V.
