All Alpha Suite models feature the following:
- A complete instrument requiring vacuum, power and connection to a PC only.
- Simple, high speed USB connection to computer.
- Internal advanced DIGITAL MCA.
- Digital Spectrum Stabilizer.
- Computer controlled preamplifier, HV supply, and calibration pulser.
- High Quality Nickel-plated Brass Vacuum chamber, easily decontaminated
- Optional Alpha Recoil protection system available.
- Compatible with all previous ORTEC Alpha Spectrometer Systems.
- MAESTRO® MCA Emulation Software.
With the Alpha Suite range of integrated Alpha Spectrometers, ORTEC is able to address the needs of ANY counting laboratory, large or small, upgrading or just starting out. The latest advanced digital design, together with a modular mechanical approach, aligns value and performance with unparalleled configuration flexibility. Any of these spectrometers may be added to existing ORTEC systems simply by installing the latest drivers included with the instrument.
A single alpha spectroscopy channel in a 2-wide NIM chassis. The digital MCA is built right in, so a USB connection is all that is needed to start counting. A simple to operate PUMP/HOLD/VENT control is mounted on the front panel. The Alpha Aria is easy to add to existing NIM installations.
Benchtop dual alpha spectrometer with two alpha spectroscopy channels. Each unit includes 100% fully computer controlled vacuum measurement, variable detector bias supply (switchable positive or negative), preamplifier, test pulse generator with variable amplitude, and a leakage current monitor. The Alpha Duo has dedicated independent MCAs to optimize processing time.
Benchtop single alpha spectrometer with sample chamber designed for filters up to 4.18 inches (106 mm) in diameter. Based upon the Alpha Duo, but capable of sampling much larger samples and using large diameter detectors, it has all the same quality features and is fully computer controlled. The Alpha Mega is available in benchtop form, or as an option in our Alpha Ensemble chassis.
Modular alpha spectroscopy system which may be configured with up to 4 modules in any combination of ALPHA-DUO-M1 and/or ALPHA-MEGA-M1 expansion modules. Each alpha spectroscopy module includes a vacuum gauge, variable detector bias supply (switchable positive or negative), preamplifier, test pulse generator with variable amplitude, self-controlled RCAP, and a leakage current monitor.
Each expansion module has a separate vacuum control within an Alpha Ensemble configuration. The Alpha Ensemble may be either rack mounted or left in the table-top mounting enclosure in which it is supplied. In the Alpha Ensemble configuration, an internal USB hub provides connection via a single cable to the user’s PC. Each detection system has individual digital offset and conversion gain settings for maximum flexibility.
