Description

The SPAB-15 probe for measurement of surface contamination is designed to be used with any CSP survey meter. Its Silicon PIPS detector with 15 cm² detection area makes it an ideal tool for direct measurement of alpha and beta emitters. PIPS technology brings numerous benefits never encountered before in hand-held applications.

These are:

  • An improved MDA (much lower gamma background compared to other technologies).
  • A very good alpha/beta discrimination (never met before with other type of detector).
  • A durable entrance window (not sensitive to pressure, cleanable)


The SPAB-15 unit 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 - including 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.
