MODEL 6060



The model 6060 is a neutron rem detector. It is designed to be operated with the 6000 series components. The detector is a modified Anderson Braun type detector. The high energy range has been extended into the GeV range by the use of lead compensators inside the detector.

The detector is a stand alone component needing only 12 volts to operate. The preamp and power supply are included and are mounted on the end of the detector. High voltage, discriminator and gain are all set digitally. The preamp is designed for low noise and low microphonic response. The electronics is housed in a sealed housing to eliminate atmospheric and electrical noise. The output is a series of pulses proportional to the radiation field. The instrument has TTL, 12V, and PULSE-LINK outputs.

PULSE-LINK is a system that combines the output pulses and the 12 volt power supply together on one coax cable. This allows the detector to be remotely powered and operated on only a single piece of coax. This greatly eases setup in existing facilities and also makes it simple to provide temporary placement using existing coax runs. Of course separate signal and power lines may also be used.
