X-PIPS™Detectors (integrated PA) - Series X


The preamplifier has a digitally controlled reset mechanism providing fast reset time and excellent count rate performance. A reset inhibit signal is available to prevent storage of spurious pulses due to transient reset effects. The width of the inhibit output pulse can be set from 10 μs to 650 μs.

The energy resolution is guaranteed within an ambient temperature range of +10 °C to + 30 °C with the default factory settings.

The X-PIPS™ Detector has an internal multilayer collimator for improved peak to background.
