The SG-1R probe for gamma measurement is designed to be used with any CSP survey meter. Its good sensitivity makes it ideal to detect gamma emitters starting from background level.
SG-1R is part of CANBERRA's new SMART Probe (CSP™) family. It includes all key components of hardware circuitry (high voltage power supply, amplifier, discriminator, etc.). Also, the intelligence associated with controlling those components is located in the probe - that is control and storage of key parameters, settings, calibrations, probe ID, alarm settings (10 values for each unit to display with default setting), etc. Thus the probe is a fully integrated subsystem talking and transmitting the measurement to the instrument, which is used for display.
