Description

The compact size, exceptionally lightweight, and easy-to-deploy mechanism of the Tele-STTC instrument make this probe an ideal tool for measurement of areas that are difficult to access or require remote measurement high exposure areas.

The Tele-STTC instrument supports ALARA principles by allowing the operator to obtain measurements both quickly and at increased distances, due to its maneuverability.

Tele-STTC unit requires minimal space when packed 95.5 cm (3.13 ft) and the pole can be extended up to 3.3 m (10.9 ft) with secured 1/4 turn rings for each extension segment. The unit is so lightweight that even when unfolded, it doesn’t need to be offset, and the pole and meter can be used together even for short range measurements. The meter remains at the user’s eye level even when the pole is opened.

A shoulder strap can be used to secure the Tele-STTC device when used in the open position or simply to keep it attached while being carried.

The unit consists of a detector integrated on a telescopic carbon fiber based pole on which a meter is attached by a connecting clip. The meter is removable and can therefore be used independently. The Tele-STTC unit can be used with the Radiagem™ or Colibri personal survey meters, which are not included.

The detector integrated into the Tele-STTC instrument is designed for gamma dose equivalent rate measurement. The Tele-STTC unit extends the measurement range up to 10 Sv/h (1000 rem) and the distance from the radiation source when used with the Radiagem or Colibri meters.

The detector is integrated within a compact and robust metal case which includes the Geiger Mueller detector, the high-voltage power supply and the pulse shaping circuits. It uses the time-to-count algorithm from Mirion, hence enabling a unique range of measurement with only one Geiger Mueller detector. By using only one detector, the Tele-STTC instrument offers a better angular response than any other probe with an equivalent measurement range and comes in a smaller form factor. Additionally, the multiple detector switching effect present with other instruments is not an issue for the Tele-STTC unit.

The Tele-STTC unit is a CANBERRA™ SMART Probe (CSP™). 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.

Comments:

Needs CSPS software and PC cable for probe upgrade. Please refer to CSPS user manual for upgrade procedure

Revision Changes / Additions:

A specific firmware version does exist for the TTC module inside the Colibri product. This version is referenced 11_07_12.

Fixed:

Communication interruption during approximately 1s between 1mSv/h and 10mSv/h

Improved probe status handling

Improved the use of unit information in the CSP frame

Separate handling of range and microcontroller frequency
