MCA8000D Pocket Multichannel Analyzer from AmpTek

The MCA-8000D is a digital full-featured digital multichannel analyzer that can be used for a wide range of detector systems. The easy to use 'Pocket MCA' can fit in a shirt pocket. The MCA8000D is a sophisticated high performance, compact digital multichannel analyzer. It is a replacement for the MCA 8000A offering the same functionality with low dead time, modern communication interface and high data transfer rates.

Key Features

The key features of the MCA 8000D are:

  • Compatible with conventional analog pulse shaping MCA and MCS modes
  • High speed ADC (100 MHz, 16 bit) with digital pulse height measurement 8k data channels
  • Minimum pulse peaking time 500 ns (200 ns shaping) and conversion time 10 ns
  • Sliding-scale linearization - differential nonlinearity <±0.6%, integral nonlinearity <±0.02%.
  • Two peak detection modes with first peak after the threshold (nuclear spectroscopy), absolute peak after the threshold (particle counter calibration in clean rooms)
  • Two TTL compatible gates for coincidence and anticoincidence, USB, RS-232, and Ethernet communication interfaces
