  • Counters, Timers, Rate Meter and Multichannel Scaling

    ORTEC

    ORTEC offers the broadest range of nuclear counters, timers, rate meters and multichannel scalers. Counters simply count the number of input pulses received during the counting period. Timers count pulses generated by an internal or external clock and are used to measure elapsed time, or to establish the length of the counting period. Rate meters provide a readout of the pulse count rate. Multichannel scalers count the number of events that occur during a specified time interval, referred to as the dwell time, resulting in a time-histogram of counts. “Standalone” and programmable computer controlled versions are available.

  • Application Software

    ORTEC

    Application software is a key element of a premium measurement system. Applying this software approach to a broad range of radiation detector hardware and data acquisition systems, ORTEC offers comprehensive nuclear measurement solutions that provide integrated hardware control, analysis, and display in a single, easy-to-use package.

  • Chemical Weapons Identification

    ORTEC

    Portable Isotopic Neutron Spectroscopy (PINS) Systems have been deployed world-wide; increasingly, being deployed as part of national counter-terrorist efforts. PINS provides a non-contact and non-destructive means of identifying the CHEMICAL contents of "suspect" packages.

  • Mobile Assay System

    ISO-CART-85 - ORTEC

    Complete In-situ NDA Gamma-Ray Analysis Solutions for a Wide Variety of Samples including "Free-Release" Decommissioning WasteMeasures all common geometries: pipes, cylinders, floors, ceilings, walls, drums, boxes, and soilsEasy-roll cart for maneuvering over any surfaceWide selection of collimators and shields available for different measurement situationsContinuous height adjustment and variable tilt adjustmentISOTOPIC software, proven results on thousands of real-world samplesFactory pre-calibrated or calibrate with a single inexpensive mixed isotope point sourceFlexible reporting: measurement results can be reported in grams or activity (Bq or Ci)

  • Mobile Radiation Detection

    ORTEC

    ORTEC’s line of gamma and neutron detection instruments are simple to use and designed for nuclear search and emergency response. Whether you need to search for elevated sources of radioactivity or to resolve whether an alarm is the result of cosmic background, radiation emitted from an industrial source, or from special nuclear material, with ORTEC’s top of the line detection systems, you can be certain of a correct answer every time. The most common approach to the detection of RDD or IND devices is through their gamma-ray signatures.

  • Multichannel Analyzers

    ORTEC

    Multichannel Analyzers (MCAs) are workhorse instruments in many scientific measurements. An MCA analyzes a stream of voltage pulses and sorts them into a histogram, or “spectrum” of number of events, versus pulse-height, which may often relate to energy or time of arrival. The stored spectrum may then be displayed and analyzed.

  • HV Bias/NIM Power Supplies and Bins

    ORTEC

    ORTEC offers two types of power supplies for use with NIM instrumentation: power supplies that provide operating voltages for a detector (more properly called detector bias supplies or “HV” supplies) and power supplies that provide the necessary operating voltages for NIM Modular electronic instruments in the form of a NIM “Bin” with associated power supply.

  • High Purity Germanium (HPGe) Radiation Detectors

    ORTEC

    Semiconductor based photon radiation detectors have been evolving for over half a century, with ORTEC pioneering commercial availability for a majority of that time. Initial offerings were based around lithium-drifted germanium Ge(Li) and lithium-drifted silicon Si(Li). Ge(Li) was later replaced with more advanced, high purity germanium (HPGe) detectors. ORTEC provides a comprehensive suite of HPGe radiation detector solutions covering an extensive range of energies and for a variety of applications.

  • Hand-held Radioisotope Identification Device

    RadEAGLET - ORTEC

    Combining a large, high sensitivity crystal with a proven and tested intelligent algorithm, the RADEAGLET can quickly, accurately, and simultaneously detect and identify up to six isotopes, typically in under 30 seconds. The RADEAGLET performs well, even in complex shielded or masked scenarios. ANSI 42.34 compliant, the RADEAGLET offers a user-friendly interface that is intuitive, simple to navigate, provides visually clarity, and utilizes an extensive array of alarms. Supports NaI(Tl) and LaBr3(Ce) to optimize performance across multiple applications.

  • Hand-Held Radioisotope Identifiers

    RIIDs - ORTEC

    Detective Family Hand-Held Radioisotope Identifiers (HHRIIDS or RIIDS) have been in the front line of operations to interdict the illicit trafficking of nuclear materials worldwide, ORTEC RIIDS are used everyday by organizations such as:Departments of Homeland SecurityDepartments of DefenseNational Security OrganizationsBomb Disposal TeamsEmergency Response TeamsCustoms and Border ControlNavy, Army and Air Forces Emergency Management TeamsCivil Support TeamsPolice DepartmentsNuclear Safeguards OrganizationsNuclear Fuel ManufacturersNuclear ResearchersUS NNSA second line of defense “Megaports” initiativeTransit Authorities

  • Alpha/Beta Counters

    ORTEC

    ORTEC offers a full suite of MANUAL alpha/beta counters incorporating either gas-flow proportional detector or dual-phosphor scintillation detector technologies. These manual, single detector systems are ideally suited for applications requiring long count times for a small number of samples.

  • Alpha Spectroscopy

    ORTEC

    Alpha spectroscopy is used to identify and quantify radionuclides based on the alpha particles emitted in the decay process. Similar to Gamma Spectroscopy, energy spectra are generated with high precision detectors and electronics and analyzed with special software. Typically, samples are measured following chemical separation to isolate the radionuclides of concern due to the complexity associated with correcting for these interferences with spectrum analysis software as is common for many Gamma Spectroscopy measurements.

  • Amplifiers

    ORTEC

    The amplifier is one of the most important components in a pulse processing system for applications in counting, timing, or pulse amplitude (energy) spectroscopy, providing the pulse-shaping controls needed to optimize the performance of the analog electronics.
