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.
