The SX-2R probe for measurement of leakage and surface contamination is designed to be used with any CSP survey meter. Its 1.5" NaI(Tl) detector with 3 mm thickness and Beryllium window makes it an ideal tool for direct measurement of x-ray emitters. The SX-2R instrument is a probe of choice for Homeland Security application since it is able to detect most contaminations (including alpha and beta) based on x-ray emission. It is also very useful for precise X-ray leakage monitoring on accelerators, X-ray generators and containers.
The SX-2R 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 - 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.
