  • Optional temperature-stabilized* NaI(Tl) and CeBr3 probes
  • USB 2.0 connection for PC plug-and-play
  • Ethernet 10/100BaseTX (PoE) connection for network applications
  • PHA, MCS, SCA, MSS, List, and Time-stamped List modes
  • Fully supported by Genie™ 2000 software and programming libraries
  • Optional software development kit with examples
  • Diagnostic web GUI
  • Compatible with Model 727 shield


Osprey digital MCA from Mirion is much more than a tube base MCA for scintillation detectors. Besides the standard PHA mode of operation, it includes MCS, SCA, Multispectral Scaling, List, and Time-stamped List modes. With both Ethernet and USB 2.0 interfaces, the Osprey digital MCA is designed for remote or local operation. Plus, three user-configurable I/O ports provide maximum flexibility for data and control signaling.

An issue with scintillation detector spectroscopy is peak shifting due to changes in environmental temperature. Osprey digital MCA, teamed with the Mirion NAIS-2x2 stabilized NaI(Tl) probe, solves the problem with patented* built-in LED stabilization technology.
