SAB-100 is part of Canberra’s Smart Probe (CSP™) family, that drives numerous benefits, such as plug and play capabilities and exceptional readiness for field operations. Please refer to the “hand-held probes” brochure for further details.


The SAB-100 probe for measurement of surface contamination is designed to be used with any CSP survey meter. Its phoswich detector with 100 cm2 detection area makes it an ideal tool for direct measurement of alpha and beta emitters.

A push-button located on the probe housing selects the counting mode. When pressed, the probe switches to the next mode in a list of three and the LED is activated accordingly: alpha only – LED off, beta only – LED on and Alpha+beta – LED blinking. It is a powerful feature for the user to avoid the need to look back on the instrument when changing the mode.

SAB-100 includes a protection grid that is very easy to remove for decontamination purpose. Once this grid is detached, the probe remains operational and the whole assembly stays light tight.

The entrance window is attached on a removable metallic frame that is fixed on the probe body with flat screws and does not need very long to be exchanged, reducing the time to service.

The SAB-100 probe can use two different entrance windows:

  • SAB-100: Mylar Window
  • SAB-100R: Mylar window with additional very thin grid to add more protection for harsh environment.

SAB-100 can be upgraded (probe’s firmware) via CSPS, a USB cable and a PC.

SAB-100 connects to CSP compatible survey meters via a 1.5 meter, 10 meter or 20 meter CSP cable.
