Features

  • Alpha surface contamination measurement
  • 32 cm2 ZnS(Ag) scintillation detector
  • Belongs to CSP™ family
  • Calibration via PC software
  • Robust screwed-on grid simple to decontaminate
  • Easy to change scintillator
  • Very low sensitivity to neutron and gamma field

Description

The SA-32 probe for measurement of surface contamination is designed to be used with CSP meter such as Radiagem™ meter, MIP-10 Digital™ meter, Avior® or Colibri® devices. Its ZnS(Ag) detector with 32 cm2 detection area makes it an ideal tool for direct measurement of alpha emitters on glove boxes, small areas and for personal self control, allowing to check worker's arm in only one pass.

The sensitivity to gamma and/or neutron dose-rate has been reduced to minimize the risk of false positive alarm even in high dose rate environment.

The probe body diameter has been reduced to facilitate general handling and reduce the risk of drops.

The SA-32 probe 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 taking and transmitting the measurement to the instrument, which is used for display.

New Features:

None

Known Isuues:

HV failure not active for SPAB15 probe

The status bit 5, power supply failure, is not functional.

Fixed:

SG1-R and SG2-R probes can show a sporadic saturation due to a timing conflict between the analog to digital conversions made in the probe

The initialization time is now set to 30s instead of 20s. 20s was too short to cover the necessary stabilization time of some SG2-R probe

The period of FRAM integrity check is now set to 30s instead of 20s. Because it is
synchronized with the initialization bit

Compatibility:

Need a CSPS version higher than V2.00B to uses the 'firmware update' and 'writing
defaults parameters' functions

Need a Radiagem firmware version higher than V2.19
