The Aegis unit is the latest transportable, battery-powered HPGe gamma spectrometer in Mirion’s portfolio. Like its Falcon 5000® predecessor, it offers many state-of-the-art features, such as a thermal-cycle free cryostat, an integrated all-in-one design and laboratory-grade energy resolution. All this is combined with larger HPGe crystals and the option to integrate with a Remote Detector Chamber (RDC) cryostat, enabling detector backshielding. These features make the Aegis spectrometer easily deployable for multiple uses in the field or in the lab.
With IP65 ingress protection rating and no cooling fans, the system can be deployed in heavy rain conditions and dusty environments without the risk of contaminating internal parts. The exterior surface is designed to be easily decontaminated and put back into service quickly. With the integration of a highly efficient cooler, the detector can remain cooled down in a wide ambient temperature range up to 50 °C (or 122 °F).
