The SA-100 probe for measurement of surface contamination is designed to be used with any CSP survey meter. Its ZnS(Ag) detector with 100 cm2 detection area makes it an ideal tool for direct measurement of alpha emitters.
The SA-100 instrument is part of the Canberra™ SMART Probe (CSP) family. It includes all key components of hardware circuitry (high voltage power supply, amplifier, discriminator, etc.). Also, the intelligence associated with controlling those components is located in the probe - that is control and storage of key parameters, settings, calibrations, probe ID, alarm settings (10 values for each unit to display with default setting), etc. Thus the probe is a fully integrated subsystem talking and transmitting the measurement to the instrument, which is used for display.
