The Canberra Smart Probe Software (CSPS) brings intelligent instrumentation to both users and Service Department personnel. It helps users set up and utilize CSP instruments and all associated Canberra Smart Probes (CSP). It also provides service organizations with the right tool to diagnose and calibrate each instrument via a simple serial link to a PC. The CSPS platform can also upgrade the instrument’s firmware, making sure that you always have the most up to date product for carrying out your daily Health Physics responsibilities.
With the smart design of CSP tool, key components of hardware circuitry (high voltage, amplifier, discriminator, etc.) are located directly inside of the probe housing rather than in the host survey instrument.
The intelligence associated with controlling those components is also located in the probe – that is, control and storage of key parameters, settings, calibration, probe ID, alarm settings, etc.
Thus the probe is a fully integrated subsystem, acquiring and transmitting data to the instrument (survey meter or PC).
The CSPS platform talks directly to the probe and makes it available (setup and calibration) to host instruments (Radiagem™ meter or PC) for further use in the field.
The CSPS platform also sets up and calibrates a Radiagem unit, Avior® meter, MIP 10 Digital™ meter and Colibri® instrument via a direct link to the PC, avoiding the need for other instruments or connections (no mechanical setup).
