Predator MCA - Isotope Identifier

Various configurations available, including neutron detection.

Predator by D-Tech

Available Predator Configurations:

The Predator series is a user-friendly, advanced isotope identifier. With this MCA, isotope identification is a one-stop process. This powerful
instrument features a combination of up to four different detectors to identify 107 different radioactive materials. The isotope library includes: medical isotopes, industrial isotopes, and other nuclear materials.

Advanced signal processing electronics combine data from all detectors to identify the source. Other leading products utilize more simplistic detector arrays, yielding less accurate data. Furthermore, some MCA's will not even identify the isotope, forcing the user to manually compare energy peaks with library data. The Predator eliminates guesswork and delivers accurate, critical data when it is needed.

In addition to isotope identification, the Predator is a sensitive radiation detector. Safety personnel can efficiently survey high volumes of people, packages, vehicles, or danger areas. The source of radiation can be swiftly detected in critical situations, for dose/rate measurement and isotope identification.

The Predator features a built-in Bluetooth wireless data link that transmits data to a remote PC up to 300 feet away. The Predator is built to withstand
rugged environments. It is useful in all weather conditions, and it will endure rigorous decontamination procedures. All radiation measurements are stored in non-volatile memory. No measurement data is lost, even when power outages occur. The Predator only requires three D-cell batteries, available at any drug store. No expensive charger or special power supply is required. The Predator is ready when you are.
