Press Release Summary:

Based on Cadmium Zinc Telluride detector technology, eValuator(TM)-1000 Solid State X-ray and Gamma-ray detector features energy range of 20-130 keV and operates in temperatures from 5-50°C. Measuring 2.5 x 1.25 x 3.25 in., unit includes high-voltage power supply and power/count/error LED indicator. CdZnTe detectors offer power input of 5-15 V and positive TTL pulse analog bipolar signal of ±4 V max. Vertically or horizontally mounted, it is suitable for various gauging and inspection applications.

Original Press Release:


A New Workhorse Sensor for Industrial Gauging

The eValuator-1000 is a Solid State X-ray and Gamma-ray detector based on Cadmium Zinc Telluride (CZT) detector technology. CdZnTe detectors offer the distinct advantage of being 100% solid-state technology with a significant efficiency advantage over conventional scintillation-based detectors. A higher efficiency detector can equate to lower X-ray power, less shielding, lower system cost, and better statistics.

The eValuator-1000's simple and rugged design, coupled with its superior sensitivity, make it ideally suited for the precise measurements needed in today's demanding industrial and manufacturing environments.
